Cardi B thanks for Inspiring me!

We recently hosted our Portfolio & Perspectives Style Shoot Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia

As we were busy styling up our main table for seating we were inspired… So here goes my story of Inspiration!

So those who are not familiar with the rap star Cardi B she has been headling blogs, news outlets and she was made super popular  by her authentic style on Instagram. This young female rapper just recently dropped her debut album and when I saw the cover art I was so inspired.cardi-b-invasion-of-privacy

I absolutely love loud colors they scream happiness to me. So with the inspiration of the album art cover, I was inspired to design my recent tablescape for our Portfolios & Perspectives Event Design Workshop around the inspiration of the album cover. Searched my mind and took an immediate inventory of items already owned that I can pull this look together. Just a few basics and we got what we envision the color palette that screams fun!Official Cardi B inspired for blog_ copy

A dream realized one that came through it was a cold winter day in January one day after a major extreme winter weather storm and we were blessed with an appointment with the dream Coach Tiara LaShae Johnson we met we talked and upon leaving the session she assisted me in pulling out some dreams and aspirations. During our session she assisted me in creating deadlines for my goals. Starting with what I plan to do in the next seven days, then on the next 2weeks followed by 30 day deadline and last but not least 3 month goal.

Introduce Yourself…. Outtakes from a recent Video Shoot !

Introduce yourself right on right on… These are a few of my outtakes from a recent video shoot… I’m actually super shy in front of the camera… but in person, I’m super silly love to laugh and have a good time… in my earlier days… I use to rap so I love rhymes and poetry… not the strongest lyricists but my words would rhyme and I thought they were Dope!!! Nowadays you can catch me capturing special moments for special people! I enjoy connecting with people. My real joy is using my camera to create clean crisp images to assist business owners in leveling up their brand.
