Zakiya and Kevin — ENGAGED!!

This past weekend I had the hilariously great pleasure to photograph engagment photos for two of my old college friends! Zakiya and Kevin are so sweet, funny, and everything in between! I remember the day Zakiya told me they were dating back in 2007; now some 5 odd years later, they’re engaged to be married!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to be their official wedding photographer (rats) but we definitely had enough fun to make up for it during our session! Check out some of the behind the scenes pics feature the lovely couple and our OTHER pal from college, Marie!

Good Times with Great People

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of helping my friend Gregory Cox and the rest of my hometown in honoring his father BoPeep Sauls. Mr. BoPeep has been writing, singing, and performing Gospel for many years — and was finally getting his due! Even though this was a family affair…you know I couldn’t go without bringing along my camera!!

AND of course you can’t have church without the fellowship!! LOVED spending time hanging out with my loves Greg, Jamareo, OJ, and Jazz!!

**POP** Goes The Weasel!

THIS week has been a fast paced but productive one! Saturday I had an awesome bridal portrait session with the beautiful Wytisha in an even more beautiful garden— but nothing this week has topped the news I recieved this morning. This morning, one of my maternity clients had quite the surprise for me!

The lovely [new] mother had her WATER TO BREAK!!!


This Saturday I was scheduled to have an at home maternity session to capture the ever glowing Nikki, but this morning her little bundle was apparently tired of that little space he was in–needless to say, homeboy was ready to bust out! 4 days before our shoot — her little one is already on his way! Hopefully she and the mister will work on baby # 2 and we’ll make sure we get them photographed EARLY!!! haha

It’s been a crazy week so far, but it’s all love and photos!

Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your day!

Seriously folks, I can NOT take any more genius from fashion designer Laquan Smith! I have been following him since 2010 and it seems like in a blink of an eye, he is cranking out new work that it takes some designers 20 years to create! [PHOTOS COURTESY OF LAQUAN SMITH AND GOOGLE]

Over the past 2 years you may have seen Laquan’s work on some of your favs — Rihanna (Rude Boy video), Raven Symone, Mogul Tyra Banks, Cassie, Victoria Secret Model Selita Ebanks, Lady Gaga, Glee Actress Amber Riley, and leading lady Paula Patton! (whew let me catch my breath). HOWEVER, most of the ‘everyday’ world started catching notice this year when his work was shown on BET’s Rip The Runway 2012. Each of his collections have a distinct difference between them, however they still collectively scream — LAQUAN! LAQUAN! LAQUAN!

His newest collection “Robotic Dream” / “Eclipse”…
