Meet Our Photographers
Sophie believes the complexity and power of glamour, and thinks rhinestones can be radical. She was educated at Sarah Lawrence College and Harvard University, and has studied many forms of art, including painting, theater, and music. In her first career, she worked for world change at a policy institute — but when she fell in love with photography and launched Shameless in 2009, she knew she’d found her calling. She feels blessed every day to do this work, and will stop at nothing to make sure that every person who comes to Shameless walks away feeling inspired and confident about who they are.
Carey Lynne, San Francisco
Carey has been in love with photography for as long as she can remember. She received her BFA in photography from George Mason University and studied for her Master’s in Photography at the Academy of Art University. Before joining Shameless, a great deal of her photo work focused on women, femininity, and bringing awareness to issues like rape and body image. When she joined Shameless in 2011 she knew that she had found something special — a perfect combination of creating beautiful images of strong women communicating messages that could change the way our society perceives beauty. Most recently, Carey’s American Beauty photo series was featured in newspapers, blogs, and magazines across the globe.
Angela is a visual storyteller whose work as a photojournalist, portrait and lifestyle photographer have enabled her to capture those unmistakable authentic moments of humanity that exist in people’s lives around the world. Angela’s professional mission is to champion stories of equality and to showcase female heroes looking to break the glass ceilings of their lives. Most recently her photojournalism assignments with the BBC and USA Today have taken her to remote (and not so remote) communities in Cambodia and Vietnam as well as her hometown of Detroit. She is thrilled to bring her passion for female empowerment to Shameless in New York, working with each client to embody their own beauty and truth.
Chrissy “LC” Bulakites, New York
Chrissy “LC” Bulakites found both photography and pinup glam by way of music. She grew up dancing in her grandparents’ living room to classic rockabilly records and majored in Music at Northeastern University, where she took a photography class as an elective and fell head over heels for the camera. After college she went on to work in the art department at a major modeling agency in Manhattan. Disheartened by the impossible standards of beauty perpetuated by her work and the fashion industry in general, she left her job and set out to dedicate herself to creating work that makes people feel good about themselves. This continues to be her mission in her personal work as well as her work at Shameless. She strives to create a fun experience for her clients that challenges their self perceptions and leaves them with a feeling of empowerment.
