I'm a mom of 2, accomplished entrepreneur, self-proclaimed HOT MESS and body positive model. In my former corporate life I was a brand manager to beauty brands like Oribe, UNITE, R+Co, and Organic Pure Care. Essentially, I was a shampoo sales girl. After years of experimental and traditional sales and marketing, I decided I wanted to invest that time into something that I was passionate about.
Today, I am 2 years into my journey running Southern Social, managing my business from Nashville, TN, working with close to 30 clients each year, and living my best life attending softball and basketball games, school award ceremonies, and mom brunches with all of the flexibility and freedom I hoped for...all while helping my clients have the most incredible style on social media.
Hey there, I’m DayNa (yes, the N is capitalized!). I’m a lifestyle photographer in Nashville and the Founder & CEO of LOCAL Coasters. I’ve been working with Southern Social as the lead style photographer since its launch in 2017 and have partnered with Keisha on a variety of projects over the span of 5 years. I absolutely love our clients, and truly enjoy being able to capture the true heart of their brands. You can find more of my work @southwell.photo.
I am a ginger-haired, hotmess, boy mom, and wife to an entrepreneur/Marine Corps veteran. By day, I chase around my toddler and our fur babies. By night, I'm a fierce beauty entrepreneur and social business coach.
Running almost exclusively on coffee, I am able to do what I love most which is helping others to grow out of their personal or business funks. In my previous life, I coordinated communications in the corporate world and managed public relations for a nearby city. Though my day-to-day has change quite a bit, my passion for words and helping others has not waned. You can find me laughing, making things pretty, and sharing inspiration @thegingerashleyd.
I'm the video guy. Call me Christopher River.
