Fashionable Stroll

Good Monday evening everyone. I just wanted to share with you a picture I shot of a gentleman and his wife (not visible) walking their very big, fashionable dogs in the downtown area last weekend. You never know what you’ll see when you venture out into the streets. Stay adventurous!

No Pictures Please!

An oldie of my son. He doesn’t always like for me to take his picture.

Is He Really?

Post Hair Cut

Thank God it’s the weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying it? While out enjoying yesterday’s warm weather my son finally let me take a shot of him after cutting off his dreads that he’d been growing for the past 2 years. He even gave me somewhat of a smile! He decided he was tired of “all that hair” plus, he wanted to look more grown up for his birthday coming soon. I can understand because, I did the exact same things a few years ago. But you know how kids are, he might grow it back soon? ¬†Who knows?!

Keeping Baby Warm

Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share a few candid portraits of a man embracing his baby while outdoors on a cold afternoon. While out shooting randomly with my Aunt I noticed this man and his family trying to enjoy themselves despite the brisk weather. When I approached them I noticed the piercing dark eyes of the baby, so I moved in close to try and focus in on them. Just as I moved in to take the shot the father embraced his child and held him tightly to shield him from a strong burst of cold wind. The baby looked at me very inquisitively as I pointed my camera in his direction and snapped a few frames . Once the father realized what I was doing he graciously allowed me to shoot a few more shots of his entire family. They were very nice people, and the encounter reaffirms exactly why I love photography. Meeting nice, interesting people with open minds that allow us to do what we love without issue. Very spontaneous and fun!

Dayah’s Birthday Party

I hope everyone is enjoying their new year so far? I had the honor of attending my little friend’s birthday party last night. I really enjoyed seeing her and her family. She had fun, and she even let me get a few shots. Here are just a few pics from the festivities.

Happy New Year/Bad Girl Tae

Happy 2014 to everyone all over the world! I wish you all peace, love and happiness!

As for me, I’m going to start the year the same way I ended it…by doing exactly what I want to do! What I want to do right now is share a black and white conversion of model Taelor Moore that I shot a few months ago. Taelor isn’t a “bad girl” at all, she a good girl. I chose the title simply because the shoot was inspired by Rihanna. We both love Rihanna and to me Taelor can bear a very close resemblance to the famous singer. Hey Taelor, if you’re reading this? We’re past due for another round! Let’s do it!!!
