I founded Images Des Reves in 2022 to support my family while pursuing my passions of photography and styling. My goal for the business is to be a full service, one-stop-shop for anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion. We provide photography for a number of events such as birthdays, graduations and holidays, but the main focus is on weddings. We provide fashionable clothing from Togo and assist with tailoring and styling for photography sessions, with clothing available to purchase. We will also be sharing our building with an African market that will assist in attracting a larger customer base. A major focus of the business is on the refugee & recent immigrant community in my home city of Concord and surrounding southern NH. I myself am an active member of the New England Togolese Association. As a refugee, other recent arrivals to the U.S. feel more comfortable and reassured working with someone from a similar background, who knows the struggles of leaving your homeland to start anew. It is important to me to help new refugees get settled, and when a time of celebration comes, I am available to help create lasting memories.
