Episode 55: Scarlett Lillian

September 25, 2008

scarheadshot.jpgA couple of years ago, I came across a fellow videographer’s website whose work I thought was terrific. Sadly, shortly after discovering this videographer (and sharing some tidbits of wisdom with her), I learned she turned her sights from videography to photography. Since that time Scarlett Lillian‘s star has been quickly rising. In this episode she talks about her transition and her passion for photography. She also shares with us the challenges of seeing two parents battle cancer—her mom’s a breast cancer survivor, and her dad is currently dealing with level 4 terminal lung cancer. Scarlett is another deeply spiritual person who is very vocal about her faith. As such, I ask her to delve into what that means for her. I even challenge her with some tough questions about reconciling her faith with her branding. I also ask her to address the issue of someone relatively new to the industry offering a “behind the scenes” look at her business. She takes all my tough questions head on. You may be surprised.

The musical outro this week is appropriately “A Girl Like Me” by Marieandre courtesy of Triple Scoop Music.

    Thanks Ron for having me on, I enjoyed chatting with you! And I love that outro song, it’s a perfect fit for me! 🙂

    Not too classy asking her all about cancer. Too many cancer questions really isn’t that cool and especially asking ‘is he terminal?’ shows zero class.

    @Tristan. First, thanks for listening. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the show, but it’s a personal interview, so topics related to personal issues are fair game. That being said, I always give our guests the courtesy of asking them if there are any topics they don’t want to cover. I spoke with Scarlett about this in advance of the show and made sure it would be something she’s comfortable with. Second, she’s been extremely public about both her parents’ situation on her blog. She even created an entire blog devoted to her dad and his cancer. So, I’m not touching on anything here that she hasn’t already gone in depth herself.

    So true Ron. I told you from the beginning that I am open book, and I actually thought it was classy of you to respect others enough to ask if any topics are off limits before the interview starts.

    Tristan, I don’t feel there is anything inappropriate with what Ron asked me. While I respect some people keep their health issues private, my family chooses to be open and vocal about it. We know there are so many others going through similar things, and it has been incredible to watch how God has used my mom and dad’s cancer journeys to bless, inspire and encourage others. Ron does a great job as a journalist going beyond the surface and digging deeper into the heart behind each photographer and it was an honor to spend time chatting with him so personally.

    Ron, your voice is so calming. You are great at what you do!

    Scarlett, loved the interview! I was going to count the number of times you said “um” like my speech teacher used to do to us, but there was no need. You are so well spoken and I am proud of how fast your career is growing. xoxo!!

    You know how much I adore you and it just increase tenfold. You have a heart of gold and you’re such an inspiration to me and so many! Thank you for allowing all of us more into your life! You are such a sweetheart. May God bless you and your family always. May He keep His hand on you all and walk closely with you during these difficult times with your Dad’s health.

    Much love!

    ~ Dawn

    Ps: Another fantastic interview Ron!
