Grown Woman

Happy Birthday to my first born. I can’t believe that you’re 20 years old today! Where did all this time go? Sometimes I sit back and think, it really trips me out that you were actually born in the 90’s. I’m so proud of the woman you’re becoming. As a father you make me so happy! I wish you all the best going forward in your life. You’re one of the sweetest people I know and I pray you’ll always stay that way. Oh yeah, you may look just like your mom but, you act just like your old man! 😉 I love you so much!!!


Ethnic Princess Series Pt.1

My ethnic princess series was created to depict a more realistic image of princesses to young women of color. The idea is to show girls of color that royalty looks just like them, as opposed to the traditional notion that we’ve been conditioned to accept throughout history. The series is meant to convey the message that you are beautiful and important just the way you are, so be proud of the skin that you’re in. Having a daughter myself, my goal is to get more people involved and have more representations from children of all different cultural backgrounds.

This first set of images feature Princess Madison.

Stevie Head-Shots Continued

Here a few more head-shots from my recent test shoot with model Stevie. I love her androgynous look. She reminds me of one of my favorite singers of the 80’s, Annie Lennox of the popular group The Eurythmics. Maybe we’ll play around with that concept later???

After 3 long years of waiting and communicating, I was finally able to shoot with the beautiful Allison Brantley. Her very helpful mother was there also, assisting in making sure things ran smoothly, acting as co artistic director 🙂 I really appreciated all of her help! Allison did a great job, and we all had a great time! Here are a few selections from our very first effort.
