Brand Ambassador- Dedra <3

Today we are going to get to know one of our brand ambassadors, Dedra! She has been coming into the studio for years now! She has done multiple shoots with us before becoming a BA! She loves to have fun, she has an abundance of ideas for shoot themes and outfits! We absolutely LOVE her and are so excited for you all to get to know her a bit as well! So without further ado, let’s learn some facts about this beauty!


What is your name? Dedra Lakatos (Stines is maiden and I'm taking that back)

Are you single, married, have kids, or don't have kids, or pets? Getting divorced. Spouse is John Lakatos and son is Joe Lakatos and one granddaughter, Cadence. I have two dogs, Chloe and Lil' Charlie, and one cat, Mischu.

What is your job? Do you love it or loathe it? Why? I am the supervisor for phlebotomy at a large hospital, U of M. I love my job because I like to draw blood and the supervisor role is new to me this year. I enjoy the challenges that come with being a supervisor and the extra responsibility.

What is your favorite color(s)? Red, purple, and black


What is your favorite season, and why? Please let us know what we can find you doing during these months. Fall. Think the weather is fabulous to start. Chilly in the mornings and evenings but warmer during the day. I like to be by a bonfire at night with friends in the fall. Or in the Kitchen making some comfort food from scratch like a chicken pot pie!!

It's also the season to let everything go. All that's dead and weighing you down, all the regret, let it fall away as the leaves do. Only then do we become vulnerable

What thing(s) do you do to calm yourself or get you back to being grounded? Try to find a quiet place alone for a few so I can collect my thoughts and focus on not becoming irrational or quick tempered

Are you more shy or outgoing? I was shy as a child but I feel I have become more outgoing as I have gotten older. But I can definitely still have some shy moments.
