I think even I impressed myself this week. I was so happy with the way this set came out.
Meet my new client who helped make these great FABIOLA… @fvy.gold on IG. I first have to dish about her because WOW!!! This girl is 16 y’all and birthday is today btw… HBD GIRL ! Not only is she super young super beautiful, but she’s smart, sweet, and stylish… she picked out her own looks for her session, she definitely has a sense of style that not many young teenage girls have.
Thank you momma Susana for reaching out and letting me capture your amazing daughter. Let’s do it again soon!
I just wanted to give you a little insight on how I go in to every photoshoot. I’ve come to learn that my style of photography is all about scenery.
The landscape is just as important as the subject.
If I don’t have a good location filled will dynamic backdrops then I don’t feel like I’m doing my job. My creativity is driven by art and by interest. Not everything needs to be over the top interesting, but something needs to trigger me to get that shot I envision.
When I went to shoot with Lisette from @liiraven, I had no idea what backdrop I was going for but I knew which location would provide me with them according to each of her outfits.
You can see here how important it is for me to shoot with interesting backdrops.
I am having wayyyy to much fun styling these shoots. I am so fortunate to be able to do all the things I always wanted but never thought I would ever be able to. Take it from someone who believed that dreams are just for when you are sleeping. I worked my butt off for all this. Now all I dream of is for some actual sleep. Lol
Enjoy the photos and my YouTube video on this shoot.
I wrote on a recent IG post all about investment and what it should mean to an individual.
After getting all the dets from Kyrz about this amazing dress, it took a whole other meaning than that of just a very expensive materialistic item that will be hanging in her closet.
It meant so much more to me in a sense where it opened up my eyes a bit on me and my investments. I barely invest in myself and probably on all the wrong things. This dress meant opportunities, freedom, and most importantly self care for mind, body, soul, and business.
I will definitely approach quick, inexpensive, low quality decisions with a more responsible, long term worth decision.
Without further or do, here is my muse… the Mochi dress that’s got my panties in a bunch in all the right ways lol
I met Rosanna and Winston, aka the GLAMDAPPER in The very beginning of Feb at the Topshop store if I’m not mistaken on 5th ave, it was quite intentional to. I was with Kyrz and she said she was meeting friends there, and long behold it was them. I didn’t need any introduction as I already followed them on social media. They are definitely fashion couple goals that I wish I can have with Adrian lol.
One convo led to another, and two days later I got a work call from them.
They are so authentic, so chill, and so beyond creative. They work so well as a team and I love how easy they are to vibe with professionally. I’ve worked countless time with them and it’s only mid March.
I am so loving this new journey I’m in at the moment. Call backs, new projects, consistency, it’s all there, and I’m proud to say I’ve worked hard to get here, someplace I never believed I would be because I didn’t believe in myself hard enough.
Any who, here are some images I’ve taken of my amigos, Rosanna and Winston… GLAMDAPPER AT ITS FINEST.

Meeting Kyrzayda was a blessing for me coming in to 2018. She is that door that opened when the one behind me shut. She is the window that was opened where I saw opportunity on the other side. Now that she let me in so many other have as well. She’s a person I will forever be grateful for for the rest of my life.
This little lady is passionate, loving, super funny, photogenic as heck, and above all mighty brave.
I decided to post all of my favorites from January. See below, all of her great qualities get captured.
One of the things I love about Rose and her style is that it is defined as minimalist. If I can describe it in 3 words I would say… recycle, limited, diverse. Rose can create like 99 looks with like 5 pieces (shoes included) lmao. She’s awesome !!! Check out her blog out, weekendlust.com, she created a how to on minimalist wardrobe. I dare you to try it!
