C'est La Vie Photo Shoots

I hate to sound morbid, but the only thing guaranteed with life, is death. So with that guarantee, it is our duty to treat each day of life as a new adventure! In the past month or so, I’ve been building on my photography through events that take your breath away, as well as occasions with those who have taken their last breath. Capturing moments can’t be discriminative. Emotion knows no bound. I’m grateful for whatever life dishes, good or bad… C’est la vie!

“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”

I won’t ramble on cuz I have a ton of pics to show. Mostly happy events, but I wanted to prepare you for the sad ones. Thanks to all my loved ones for letting me share in their New Day Adventures and for trusting in me to shoot their special occasions.

First off, we have birthdays!!
My Kid Bro turned 11!!

A bunch of cuties turned ONE:
Maddi-Cake, my godbaby

Heaven Lee
She had a Pre-Bday shoot first

Then her party

Ahmiya was Minnie Mouse

Dahlia turned 3 at her Dora Party!

Jayla had Spa Birthday/Pool Party... diva!

They gave Reese a Surprise 40th

Mawulom got his Surprise party in AC

And Corey's was on a boatride around Manhattan!

I did some club scene stuff for the practice

And took a little trip to BK with my cuz

Thanks to an Old Friend, I had some of my shots displayed in a gallery at Essex County College
Old Friend


I also did an Agility and Training shoot

I know its a lot of pictures but in case you've worked up an appetite, my girl Toya has some cooking classes for ya

With smiles, comes tears... HomeComing ceremonies...
RIP Diane Bryan... Love you Surae!!

RIP Charles Kirby Sr

And I conclude with the Union Of Love ceremony of my Sister, my Heart, my Gurl and her now hubby Jahan... oh and of course can't forget The Kid

As you can see, I've been busy and blogging has suffered a bit.  But thanks to the Homie KING, I'm gonna hop up on this ol' good foot and get back to business. And I've got TONS to talk about. =)
