EW: How did you start working with Luxe Kurves Magazine?

EW: What do you love most about working with Luxe Kurves Magazine?
Lacy: The energy of the team was excellent. The better the energy and positivity, the more smoothly the production goes. I enjoyed the teamwork aspect and the unity.
What motivated you to pursue a career as a photographer?
Lacy: I have always been interested in creating. Specifically, I’ve been interested in people. I began drawing portraits of people when I was a child. By the time I got to college, I realized that I enjoyed photographing people. I dove deep into fashion and beauty photography and developed a passion for it.
EW: Do you have a favorite photoshoot you have ever done?
Lacy: That’s difficult. I don’t know if I have a specific favorite, and sometimes images I take fall in an out of favor with me. I did enjoy shooting many of the images from my Milk Series.
EW: Is there a message you try to convey through your images?
Lacy: I believe that as a photographer, your images are a method of speaking. The messages that I convey change with my inspirations. I am inspired by different things on a regular basis and as a result the messages in my work evolve.
EW: What are your inspirations for photography?
Lacy: I am inspired by contrasts and contradictions; Things that exist together that one would think should never occupy the same space. I try to find the beauty in differences. I am inspired by beauty and its various interpretations. I am inspired by social and political issues. So many things evoke an emotion within me and these things move me to create and transfer this energy to my work.
