BlackLove

By invitation only well not really if you’re familiar with local events you could’ve signed up to attend this evening event Black Love. My friend Kara Norman invited me to a night out to one of her favorite shows on TV for an open discussion into challenges that come up in a marriage. We enjoyed an evening of what would be considered a live broadcast of the show with special celebrity guest Grant Hill and Tamia. It was an evening of conversation dealing with marriages from different perspectives and couples from all ranges from newlyweds two couples with plenty of skin in the game dealing with the real issues in overcoming to stay together. During our outing we had lots of fun at the photo booth provided by Far Out Galaxy! They also gave us lots of fun gifts from and Kara and I got a chance to grab a quick picture with the celebrity panelist!!!

Cardi B thanks for Inspiring me!

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.

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

Prom Seasons… A Distant Memory

The year was 2007 and just the fall of the previous year we had picked up our camera and we were ready to take on the world and capture everything in it… So as time went on and opportunities presented themselves to us we were happy to oblige. Prom Season on any giving year begins in March and goes through May.

We were contacted by the parents in order to capture images of their son and his date on their way to senior prom. So delighted that we were able to offer our mobile studio services to this client. We arrive at the home in which it was a Pre Prom Party going on complete with all the family and food and the energy was super high. We set up in the living room with our standard gray backdrop and we had a white column that stood to about your thigh area.  As we placed the couple in a position we begin to capture images of this memorable occasion. I’ve just recently come by this memory of the past with my humble beginnings. I’m Thankful and Grateful for the journey and experiences that I’ve had to capture the many couples, family, and friends during their seasons of celebrations. It thrills me to connect with so many people and be apart of their life memories. Just like that its a memory at a distant.

This distant memory is now eleven years ago. I pray these two individuals went on to pursue their passion and dreams and are living a success and properous life.
