Not yet able to attend grade school, Vanessa began developing her skills and craft at the age of four. Her early years consisted of attending cosmetology school with her mother; while she was obtaining her certification as a manicurist. At the age of 15, she obtained a certification of her own through apprenticeship.
As she got older, her love for her craft grew as did her skill level and experience. But years of working in the salon day in and day out caused her to grow spiritless.
After working on her first photo shoot with a local photographer from her hometown, Dothan Alabama, her passion for the industry re-ignited. At the age of 22, She packed up everything and relocated to Atlanta, Georgia; in hopes of pursuing her career working behind the scenes.
Within the first week of relocating, her ambition and drive led her to her first advertising campaign. There she landed her first assisting job with Make-up Artist MARAZ who guided and helped develop her freelance career.
In her first year of living in Atlanta, She has created a name for herself working with many top photographers and production agencies in the Atlanta area. She has also worked with celebrities and her work has been publish in numerous fashion print magazines.
