Daily Inspiration: Meet Wuraola Olagbaju

Today we’d like to introduce you to Wuraola Olagbaju.

Wuraola, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
As a child, I have always been interested in the arts, so when I got the opportunity to take a photography class as an elective during my senior year of high school I took it.

And as expected, I fell in love with photography and the rest is history. My photography teacher at the time was very encouraging and didn’t hesitate to help me even when I bombarded her with questions.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road. Navigating starting a business as a young introverted woman definitely hasn’t been easy, to say the least.

Coming out of my comfort zone, getting opportunities to work with people, and finding a community of creatives was a challenge for me. I remember searching for things like “how to find models” or “introverts guide to photography.”

And like most people starting with photography, I did a lot of comparing myself to other professionals. However, although I was (and still am) hard on myself, it brought me to where I am today.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in fashion, lifestyle, and portrait photography. Most people know me for my bold and vibrant shots.

Sincerely, I am most proud of how far I have come with my professional growth. Looking back on my work before quarantine and myself now I can certainly say that being consistent and showing up for yourself truly pays off.

What sets me apart from others is how I make my clients feel throughout sessions; I always strive to provide them with a comfortable and memorable experience.
