Senior year. When I think back about me senior year all I could think about was how eager I was to leave and explore. Boy how I wish I could go back to those days.Read More
Guys, I’m so so so sorry! I can’t believe I haven’t made a blog post since January. Seems like this is a terribly bad habit of mine. I promise to get better about this- especially since I’ve shot so many beautiful and amazing people this year!Read More
So it's January... January 25th. What's so special about this date? Well it also happens to be my 30th birthday! 30?! ME? I TURNED 30?! How sway?? Like most people when they are kids, 30 sounds so old and mature. You're supposed to own a house, work a good job, and all that stuff we pressure ourselves into believing.Read More
Something I've always wanted to take part in as a photographer is a styled wedding shoot. Well that finally happened and I couldn't be more excited to show ya'll.Read More
I am so ashamed to admit that I have not blogged since May! Shame on me!! 2017 has been an interesting year, I honestly can't believe that it is almost over. When? How? What's the saying? Time waits for no one? Well there's plenty of truth behind that statement!
I may not start this year, but I plan to make this blogging a more regular thing. I won't always post about photography. One thing I want the most is for all of my clients, future and past, to get to know me! After all, wouldn't you rather know who is capturing moments that you cherish?
So let's take things back to late May. I had the amazing opportunity to join Brown Girls With A Camera once again but this time in Dallas! It was such a great experience to have. Everyone was welcoming and kind and lots of Black Girl Magic happened! We worked, we learned, we had a good time! People may wonder why these type of gatherings happen or say that they are excluding others, but let's face it...sometimes-- a lot of the time it's harder for a woman of color photographer. Often times we don't get to see that representation out there. But let me tell you, we are here and we did not come to play games!
Alright so now that I got all of that out, please take the time to enjoy some of this magic that I managed to capture!
Let me just start out by saying I am blessed. God blessed me with this artistic talent that I am able to share with others! I'm blessed that people trust me enough to capture their most important moments! That is such a great feeling ya'll.Read More
So here's the run down. I was born in Texas, moved to Indiana when I was around 2 or 3, and moved back to Texas when I was 13. For those that may not know, Texas is big. Huge. You're practically in a long distance relationship with someone if they live on the South side of Houston and your North! The point I'm trying to make is that I've lived in Texas for nearly 16 years and there are still many cities I've yet to see. San Antonio was one of those cities I've always wanted to visit. I always heard how the Alamo was so small, but you never truly believe it unless you see for yourself.Read More
So almost a year ago, my cousin informed me that she was moving to Texas. She and I grew up together back in Indiana and were thick as thieves. Needless to say, I was pretty excited! She moved near the Dallas area which put us about an 3 hour drive apart. I'd take 3 hours over 14 any day!Read More
Can we take a moment to talk about how handsome/beautiful seniors are these days! I swear it's like they are models!Read More
Okay I know 2016 is now 5 days over, but hey, this is my blog and I do what I want! (Yea I sound like a child lol).Read More
When I tell you I get excited when a client reaches out to me again for family pictures...honey I get EXCITED! Why? Because I'm getting paid? Nope! 1) because I absolutely love taking pictures and 2) it brings me such joy when someone liked my work enough to use me again!Read More
Can you believe that the year is nearly over? I can't. Time truly waits for no one. This also got me thinking about my photography journeyRead More
*taps mic* Hello? Is anyone there? It's been quite some time! I could give some long drawn out reason why I haven't posted, but who really wants to sit and read all of that? So why not talk about my new adventure!Read More
Can you believe that it is already April?? How did time fly by so fast! Before you know it April will be over and mothers day is here! It's amazing how so many mothers will give so much up for the well being of their childrenRead More
Something my sister always tells me is that, "sometimes you just have to get uncomfortable to actually make some progress". Or something like that lol. Well last year I found a page on Instagram that showcased women of color photographers.Read More
I have a confession to make. I am a bit of a hoarder. I absolutely love to pick up trinkets and gadgets here and there. The problem is I have all these items and they sit collecting dust. I got to thinking about styled stock photography. I love the way these delicate and brightly colored images looked. See where I'm going with this?Read More
I'd like to introduce you to my first family session of 2016. I was a little worried about taking their pictures, the weather had been acting so bipolar lately and it was pretty ugly outside for a while. But then the sun came out and gave us a BEAUTIFUL sunset.Read More
About a week ago I logged on my facebook only to receive a message that my photography page would be removed or disabled because of copyright infringement. Copyright infringement? Huh?Read More
Literally everyone owns a camera these days. There's always that uncle, mom, cousin twice removed, that has a fancy camera. So what's the difference? What separates me from them? First, let me throw this out.Read More
