Hey, my name is Savannah-Ray

I’m not your average photographer

And I’m definitely not your average autobiographer

You see, my craft is not about becoming popular

It’s about telling my story and inspiring others to be a battler

Having gone through tragedies short of spectacular. My experiences have made me who I am today: a fighter, a balancer, a challenger, a traveler. But most important of all: a mental health awareness ambassador

My photographs are a single entity 

Designed to deliver intensity

Making you feel complexity,

Curiosity,

Perplexity,

Analyze your emotions introspectively. Hopefully maybe even make you realize something accidentally. Delivering visuals that are expressively pleasing aesthetically. In a separate category eccentrically.While pouring my heart into my words with empathy.

Through my art is my heart. Through my art, I fall apart. In a healthy way, the anger and sadness departs. Allows for me a fresh start. So I can focus on inspiring those that are feeling they are set apart .

I’ve adapted to telling my story without shame. Devoted to those struggling to find their surviving flame. To those constantly filled with anxiety and worry. To those who’s home life is viciously thorny. Spiraling their own mental health into a treacherous army.

I know what it’s like to suffer from a home environment that is anything but hearty.Stuck in a situation where verbal and emotional abuse are relentless. Parental love is careless, conditional, selfish and jealous. Causing your mental health to self-destruct as it has no way to healthily develop. Taking your negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself to a dangerous level. Releasing the world around you as the true devil. But my soul is naturally rebellious. Unconsciously knowing that my divine purpose is precious.
