As one of the creative director for the agency, Ivory wears many hats, she must coordinate events photo shoots from beginning to end and make sure the final product is what the client has envisioned. Her theory is, “At the end of the day, if the client(s) are happy, then I feel that I have fulfilled my duties by making their dream a reality.” She also adds, “Keep family first. My girls, all my mothers and my husband/best friend are everything to me. I consider them in everything I do. As long as they are proud of me, I’m a true success!”
