Soulful.

We happened to meet this lovely young lady one night in New Orleans and Adrienne and Tracy sweet talked her into modelling for our next shoot.  Wow, photographer’s jackpot – she is gorgeous, perfectly styled and such a natural in front of the camera with her electric personality shining through!  The uber-talented  Matt Nicolosi set up the lighting with his off-camera flash and video light, add in rockstars Tracy and Kim with their amazing posing skills…and voila, MAGIC!

Meet Nasimiyu, or Simi as we called her…she’s got an amazing voice and talent, not to mention that she is incredibly beautiful, inside and out.  Go check out her website…her debut album, It Ain’t Pretty, But it’s Beautiful, has just been released!

Best of luck to you, Simi…may you find continued success and happiness!

Anticipation.

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.  Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.  Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.  One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.  They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty – and I will meditate on your wonderful works.  They tell of the power of your awesome works – and I will proclaim your great deeds.  They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your rightgeousness.  -Psalm 145:1-7

This lil guy has a special place in my heart.  When his momma called me and told me their story…how he arrived at 31 weeks…while they were in Alabama visiting family over the holidays…and how they had to spend almost the first couple of months in hospitals, first in Tennessee and then here at Texas Children’s Hospital, I knew I had to meet this sweet angel.  And bless Mom’s heart, she waited ever so patiently for our session.  The session was first delayed a week when I was sick, and then my daughter was sick the following week.  It has been a loooong wait.  So I could not keep her waiting a moment longer…

Thanks, C, for hanging in there with me…I hope it was worth the wait!  :)

Perfect Gift.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father…”  James 1:17

So blessed to have met and held this “good and perfect gift” this week…what a wonderful story and what a true gift from our Heavenly Father up above.  I am extremely thankful for so much this week…for the safety of my best friend and her children in Japan, for my family and loved ones, for my beloved.  Praying for those in Japan who are still recovering from such a terrible tragedy.  Blessings, peace and comfort to you all.

“With a little help from my friends…”

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since New Orleans…what a fantastic time with an amazing group of photographers, some of which I have come to know like family.  I can’t think of a more supportive, inspiring group to be a part of…I’m a lucky gal.  Here’s just a few images that I captured that weekend…more to come!
