Stacy has been a part of my series FEARLESS, showcasing women who decide their own worth and live on their own terms. She is a talented singer, a true rock chick with a strong vocal and a national tribute music awards winner. Her Cher, Pink, Annie Lennox and Roxette performances are incredible but she is also a songwriter and performs some of her own material.
With the creative makeup created by Sara, some most incredible outfits and props collected by Stacy over the years of performing, and her previous experience with photoshoots, this portrait session was out of this world. I loved connecting with Stacy and loved every minute of her photoshoot. We had a fun day for sure!
Meet Stacy, the Warrior Queen.
At 12, my dad abandoned us, walked out, got on a plane in the middle of the night and never came back. He went to Bolivia for 5 years with no contact and no support. He dramatically came back a week before my GCSE results, didn’t do much to rectify matters, only made it worse. He brought a random woman to see me only months later, announced she was pregnant and for the last 20 years treated his new daughter better than the two he abandoned.
With no support growing up, I have had to provide myself with everything I needed or wanted in life.
My dad recently died from cancer, which has caused a lot of pain and hassle with his other family. All of this caused depression and anxiety from an early age, I also think PTSD as well. I cope with this daily while achieving all that I can day by day.
This is just a brief overview of the whole story!
What do you love about yourself?
I love that I’m a warrior and I don’t conform to the norm. I’m unusual in my style choices and tastes in all aspects! I’m really creative and like that I don’t conform and I don’t give in easily!
If you had the power to change 3 things in the world, what would they be?
What is your superpower?
Determination….or is that stubbornness?!
What do you want to do more each day?
I want to be better than the day before! Sometimes that’s a challenge, other days it’s not!
Singing is a big part of YOU and your life. How did it all start?
It started when I was in secondary school. I was never very confident before, very shy in fact! So I decided that when a group of us girls wanted to start a singing group, that I would push myself to do it and have been pushing myself ever since!
What are your dreams?
I’m a singer, so I want to achieve all I can to further my career but also want some of the basic things which I feel my history has held me back on, the nice house and stress free life in a nice part of the world. Every day has felt like a fight.
What would you advise other people who want to follow their dreams?
Always try to be fearless and have self belief to see anything through. Never give up!
Why were the photographs important to you now?
I see photos as a moment in history, a memory frozen in time. Photographs are artwork which can bring so much joy.
What advice would you give to your 20 year old self
Don’t back down so easily and tell people how you actually feel without feeling guilty.
What got your through some of the most difficult times in your life?
