Summer 1979, I remember my momma telling my brother & I that we were leaving our project apartment on Exeter in Bessemer, AL to move with my grandmother, “Mommie” in Detroit. Mommie had moved back to Detroit a year or so prior with most of her younger children but my mo

I met Megan Pouncy thanks to a great referral from friend & client Amber Cabral a few months ago. When Megan & I initially talked, she shared her needs for headshots as part of a October 2011 launch for her brand new blog titled Vino Dream geared toward Detroit area wi

I'm not sure if you have been able to tell or not but many of the images that I've been posting lately were taken with my iPhone using the Camera+ app. You know I keep singing the praises of the iPhone 4 camera and I'm anxious to see how the camera will improve with the next ver

Yesterday, I photographed the “Parade Day at the Park” event for The Parade Company at Comerica Park.  This was my 2nd time working this event for TPC, with the first time being last year. Last year was one for the record books because it was soooooo super hot! When my assi

One of the VERY 1st CDs that I EVERY purchased was Rachelle Ferrell’s self titled album “Rachelle Ferrell” back in 1992. I purchased the album because I fell in love with her voice on “No Rhyme, No Reason” by George Duke, where she was on background vocals. I was infat

Last Sunday, I attended the honeyBOOM launch party, which was held midtown Detroit at the Alley Deck. Initially, I was going to enjoy myself, kick with my girl Ris Tena (owner of honeyBOOM), have a few cocktails and enjoy the fashion show. When I got to the event, I was in suc

As I sit here writing this, I am being eaten alive by mosquitos because I cannot find my Off & I don’t want to go inside. The evening late summer air is feeling too good but I’m going to suffer later. Wait, I’m back and I found the Off. Anyhow…. Today, I completed

I found out Mayer Hawthorne’s latest single, “A Long Time” yesterday while visiting Soulbounce, where the fuss was about the video. The video is a compilation of clips from the ghetto-famed Detroit dance show, “The New Dance Show.” As a teen, I used to watch the “Ne

Just got home from Vegas & had a wonderful time. The SHRM 2011 annual conference was amazing. Staying at the Aria hotel was amazing. Enjoying new & old friends was amazing…. I could go on & on. On a not so cool note, I never made it down to the Las Vegas sign like
