Giving up? Or have you had Enough?
“There’s a difference between giving up and knowing when you’ve had enough.” One thing about the 50’s you know when you have had enough. Perhaps it is because you know you are on the other side of that half of a century mark and you know while some people make it to the ripe old […]
Do you feel good enough?
Do you feel good enough? In your profession? In your personal relationships? In your life? We are in a world where it is easy to feel as though you are constantly being judged. Judged about everything- your appearance, your weight, your clothing, home, car, partner, education, children, the list goes on and on. In my […]
Is busyness an illness?
Is busyness an illness? Yes! Busyness is an illness and I have it bad. This photography business is what has taken me to the edge. There is always something to do, something to finish, someone to call, someone to photograph. Although I love every moment, at times it is a bit much. I sometimes yearn […]
Self Portrait – The ultimate selfie
Like Frida Kahlo I love doing self portraits. Early in my photography career it was a way to try out different techniques, such as lighting, posing, locations etc..

Yesterday was a full day. Like most days my morning started early. By noon I was desperately trying to score Beyonce tickets with no avail, which is okay- I was only trying to do it for my daughter. I drove into the city to meet a friend at the Pan African film festival, which was […]

I’m going to “TRI” real hard…
Inspiration comes in many ways. I was minding my own business when a client shared she was doing the Pasadena triathlon, one that I participated in last year in the swim portion on a relay team. Then my daughter who just launched a fitness IG browngirlsdoitwell, asked me for a photo from a triathlon I […]
