Shagari Meets New Orleans

I cannot express how proud I am of this guy. He has been producing some amazing work lately and I was more than happy to help bring his vision to life for his updates head shots. We traveled to New Orleans for the day and walked the french quarter finding the best spots to stop and pose.

Knowing Shagari and his "Ricky Bobby hands" I thought posing him may be a challenge but he was a natural and despite claiming to be awkward in front of the camera, photographed very well.

Shagari was my very first mentee. He came with me to all of my sessions, carried bags and held reflectors. He was super eager to learn. He has made a name for himself in town as a premier wedding photographer.

Shagari a professional wedding photographer and videographer hailing from Lafayette, LA. Currently residing in Baton Rouge and traveling from New Orleans to Houston to capture beautiful weddings with his team.

Thanks for letting me capture you Shags! 

Monique: New Orleans Natural Hair Expo

Last year when Monique contacted me for updated head shots I was soooo nervous! With a platform of 30K plus followers on IG, I felt I needed to stretch myself in a way I hadn't before. Well, that was last year, and here we are again! Monique travels the 4 hour drive from Houston JUST to have me capture her and I really enjoy her energy. She is a complete natural in front of the camera!

Monique is a New Orleans native and the founder of the New Orleans Natural Hair Expo, held the same weekend as Essence Fest in New Orleans. This marks the 3rd Annual New Orleans Natural Hair Expo & will be held July 2, 2016, from 10-4 pm at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans.  On July 3, 2015, the expo will close-out with an exclusive brunch, from 11-2 pm at Tujaques' Restaurant.  The New Orleans Natural Hair Expo will feature workshops, product demonstrations, a blogger panel, vendor suites, vendor mall, professional DJ, catered refreshments, and a cash bar.

Rixney. Celebrating 30 Years!

What can I say about this gorgeous, sassy lady? She absolutely rocked her 30th birthday session. Her vibrant personality matched her sparkly, sequins gown as we traipsed through downtown Baton Rouge at sunset. I truly enjoyed my time with this special birthday girl. :)

Happy Birthday Rixney! I wish you many, many more!
