Rewind: Roxie In Living Color Series

Happy Halloween and good Throwback Thursday evening everyone! Next up is a series of photos taken of my model friend Roxanne way back in 2008 after I moved from Illinois to Georgia. This was also one of the first shoot collaborations between myself and makeup artist Shon Sanks. I love doing series because they allow viewers to see different perspectives all in one pic, much like the app picstitch. Although not done intentionally, after I finished working on these photos I decided to call the series In Living Color because it reminded me a lot of one of the sequences from the popular 90’s sketch comedy intro. Bright paint and lots of colors! The use of bold colors was always a trademark of mine and helped define my former style. I’ve been thinking of recreating this series with a group of new people so be on the look out for that. That’s it for now, I’ll post something new soon.

Fine Dining?

Hello world! Happy Friday to everyone! Today I’d like to share a photo I shot while back home in Chicago. It was just a McDonald’s but, it was the one of the fanciest McDonalds I’d had ever been in! It was funny because, until I saw the golden arches I actually thought it was high end restaurant. Anyway, I truly enjoyed my time home, it was MUCH needed!!! I took TONS of pictures that I will be adding to my blog and I can’t wait until I can go back! Maybe to stay??? We’ll see….

The Gathering Part 1

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you an image I captured while out walking in the park. While I stopped for a break an older gentleman and his granddaughter walked over to the area that I was standing in. Almost immediately after they sat down a group of ducks and geese began to surface from the water and walk over to them. After a few seconds the group grew larger and larger, so I decided to run back to the car and grab my camera. By the time I returned the man and little girl were completely surrounded by the birds! The child was excited and afraid, and her granddad seemed amused by the whole thing. We couldn’t figure out exactly why the animals were so attracted to them? They never fed them or even tried to call them over, but the birds really seemed drawn to the 2 people. I thought it was a very sweet moment as the grandfather tried to explain to the young child what was happening and I tried to capture as much of it as I could. This particular shot is one of the few that I would consider my favorites because the look the little gave me when she realized I was taking their picture was priceless! I’ll post more soon so please check back.

Princess Safiyyah’s Glam Shoot Pic #2

Here’s one of my favorite shots from my daughter’s first real shoot with me. I love her facial expression here. I wish the weather would have been cooler that day so we could have continued shooting because I was amazed at how beautiful she looked and how great she was doing. I’ve set a few more of these to the side to share with everyone soon. Make sure you check back often!
