Back in December 2016, Selah was conducting a fashion shoot in Charlotte, North Carolina and had Jayden on set who was watching the entire process with curiosity and intrigue. Inspired by his interest, Selah had the idea to give the then three-year-old Jayden one of her backup cameras and let him try on his own. To her surprise and delight, Jayden took to photography with an impressive ferocity and immediately started creating surprisingly good photos. Impressed by her son’s aptitude for wielding a camera, she decided to let Jayden continue shooting and to start letting him conduct his own shoots.
With Selah’s help in selecting model and location, Jayden shows up to each shoot eager to create amazing photos. He is even learning to manage his camera settings on his own. Composition and framing, though, is where Jayden’s passion currently lies. He loves to capture creatively interesting frames that match and even exceed the creative direction of work by far more experienced photographers. Jayden is a five year old on a mission to create amazing fashion photography.
