From covering both international and national artists such as Sona and Davido, headshots for actors to working with fashion bloggers and portraits for corporate businesses.

Furthermore, she has had the privilege of working with professional artists and photographers such as Dennis Pedersen, Faisal Abdu'allah and many more with a few a-list exhibitions to her belt. Her work has allowed her to be headhunted by the media for coverage even while she was in high school.
