Lani Nicole

Lani feels most people get stuck in this society of "I need to fit in" and "I need to feel this way to be part of that group" and she's not having it anymore. She's breaking that mold; and, through her two companies, Black Moon Images and Luxe Endless Beauty, she is empowering others to do the same.

Lani simply wants you to do you.

San Diego saw the launch of Black Moon Images five years ago; however, Lani originally started this company 13 years ago. She is a creative, colorful photographer specializing in events, corporations, and families.

Lani most recently launched her boudoir company, Luxe Endless Beauty – a company that instills endless beauty, endless confidence, and endless self-love. Through these two endeavors, she works to empower others to break the societal mold of fitting in and emerge out the other side as the stronger, better, more confident you that you can be.

Lani's creative side is what compelled her to start her own businesses and she strives to leave people with an experience – not just photos, but with a renewed feeling and sense of empowerment. Through her photography, she gives back to the community by helping others grow in themselves and leave feeling more empowered than when they came.

Lani also enjoys giving back to the community through fundraisers with art shows. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® and the Make-A-Wish® Foundation are two organizations for whom she has raised funds.

Lani's advice to other women entrepreneurs is to find a mentor – someone who will teach you some blueprints that will enable you to create whatever you want to create.

Lani's message to you is, "You are who you are and you are that person for a reason. Embrace it and run with it."
