About Her Creative Journey:

Prior to graduating in 2015 with an advanced Diploma in Broadcasting & Film from Centennial College, and a certificate in Communications & Media Foundations, Lady Mensah desired to be an actress and a radio presenter.

From time to time, she hosts weddings, bridal and baby showers. In the past, she promoted entertainment events within her African Canadian community. In 2019 she gained a certificate for the business planning & marketing program at BizStart Entrepreneurship , a business entrepreneurship program ran by Y.E.S (Youth Employment Services). In early 2020, she partook and completed the Digital Tech program with CEE Toronto, for their VFX Program for Young Black Professionals.

Years before that, she was under the mentorship of Dwayne Holness, the Creative Director and founder of Corex Creative, as a production assistant. She Later proceeded to tackle other exciting projects with other creatives in & outside of Toronto.

Her Photographic Style:

Lady Mensah's photographic style is vibrant and naturally simple. She enjoys all types of artistic visuals in colour or black & white imagery. Whether it's dark, moody, surrealist, documentary style or Van Gogh-like image, she is all over it. She loves getting to know people and their stories – then translates them into genuine, active, warm & life-filled photographs, working her shutter when she vibes what's seen through the lens, hoping her clients will also feel a similar connection when they look at their images.

Lady Mensah's creative focus now is on individual projects using natural and artificial lighting to photograph Maternity, Newborn, Lifestyle portraits, Birthday session's & Weddings, Events, and commercial photography.

She is inspired by the beauty all around her and finds photography incredibly rewarding. Though it's not always easy dealing with people, there’s something so exciting about capturing real emotives, like those off-guard big belly laughs. Her utmost desire is that her photographs depicts your life, your love, and your milestones genuinely.
