Life is so amazing! Even with it's ups and downs, twist and turns, it's truly awesome how much we experience and share with those around us.
This is a little piece of my world...sharing of some photo work from those awesome people who allow me to capture it on camera!
So once in a while I believe that everyone dreams of how their life will be when that final reach that level of "Grown UP" they always spoke of. I don't know if that comes once you finish college and work a few years or a certain age, but everyone has their defining moments.
It may be owning a lot of land, building you a home, and take your kid to their first day of Kindergarten . . . I believe mine will be when I'm some where around 30 and just bought myself a flat/condo/apt. in downtown Boston, MA!
What ever your definition, hold on a little tighter to it and let nothing stop you from achieving it!
Here is another photo set from my favorite family. I feel like I'm capturing the evolution of them and it's quite amazing. Life can be some awesome, it's just up to us to take advantage of the opportunities that presents themselves to us!
You have those thoughts of coming home after being away for a while. You get to see all those people you used to hang out with on a regular basis and see how their life has progressed! Homecoming Season is an awesome time of year. I really look forward to all of the old faces!
This was an awesome shoot of one of my friends. She has an awesome personality and made this my best shoot to date! Some people think they can just stand there and I work my magic, but when both parts are in sync . . . the results are awesome!
So the next time you have a personal photo shoot, please be there in mind and soul with the photographer . . . your pictures will be totally awesome if you do!!!
Do you remember those times where you were doing something you weren't suppose to do, but did them anyway knowing you would get in trouble! Yea, we've all been there and some of us still carry it over into our adults lives. The only difference is that we can't always put on our pouty face and get out of a court order, lol!
Children are awesome to photograph, their face is a depth that you can't capture in adults . . . you can still see that they have a life ahead of them full of potential!
When do we begin to change and allow society start to tell us that we can't do things or we can't achieve things. One of my goals is to do those things that my heart desires regardless of what "people" say I can and can't do!
Take a day or two and just reminisce on your childhood; the times you got in trouble, the birthday parties, Pre-K naps, etc. . . your life and what you do is still endless with possibilities!
CNN News station is having a two day special called "Black in America" and it examines what it means to be Black in America today and what the day to day life includes! It is always great to see mainstream news media to take on projects like this. My main hope is that people of all races watch and take something away from the program and use it in their lives. We have so much information available to us today, people just have to be willing to listen and apply it!
As I grow older I am starting to see life and what my role in it is. Seeing my peers grow up and get married or have children just lets me know that it is our turn and we have to make most of it!
I just did a photo shoot with the family of a friend that I meet back in 2003 when I started Louisiana Tech University. It amazes me to see that he's married and has a son and their interaction with each other shows how great humanity can be!
