Yesterday I had an amazing time photographing four amazingly gifted and successful women for their television debut. These pioneers have already written a book together called, “Lemonaid Chronicles” and now are taking their talents on the television screen! I am sooooo blessed to have photographed the cast of Dr. Carletta Perry, Tearanie Parker, Kimberly Davidson and Kimberly Jenkins. I cannot wait to share their amazing photo shoot at my studio. Here is a “sneak peek”and the best is yet to come. Stay tuned! Special thanks to Tyler Jordan, Jeffery Lewis and Chrystal Culbert for assisting.
Here are a few of my favs from Ava and Jayden’s photo shoot at Sandbridge Beach and my studio. These amazing twins are doing big things on the television scene and print! Jayden launched his career off a wedding photo I took of him and now has been featured in a car television commercial. Ava has been doing a ton of print work and just got back from New York doing a photo shoot. Be on the lookout for these awesome twin as Hollywood will be calling for them real soon!! When they are not modeling or acting, the two keep busy playing AAU soccer and basketball. The future is bright for these amazing kids! Much success Ava and Jayden!! Special thanks to Tyler Jordan and Jeffrey Lewis for capturing behind the scenes video and photography!

It’s been 20 years since my last visit to Los Angeles. My last visit was when I was stationed in San Diego while in the navy. Me and my sailor buds used to come to LA and act like we were big time ballers. My mom always told me, “fake it until you make it!” This time I was here for a purpose. To photograph Ijeoma and Bernard’s amazing wedding, thanks to Diann Valentine and Darryl Wilson. During my stay, I dialed up a few of my dear friends Andreas Branch and Damon Haley. The both of them showed me an amazing time, taking me out to the finest eateries in Hollywood as well as the jungle in Compton. Damon took me to various places in LA that I never knew existed. Then he took me to his and lovely wife Diann Valentine’s lavishing home.
Damon then educated me on some business and marketing tips that have made him successful with the Nike brand. Every time he talks, it’s all about number, and BIG numbers. He is truly a wealth of knowledge and I am truly blessed to call him a friend!
Andreas then took me to visit our dear friend and NSU alum Janeen Jackson. She then took us on a tour of her school and was amazed with the photographic talent of her students. Kelcey Newman was another dear friend I dialed up but unfortunately was out of town. Kelcey, Janeen and Andreas’ friendship spans for three decades as we’ve all enjoyed success in the arts. Andreas and I did some street photography, touring Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills. I was like a kid in a candy store, photographing everything that moved.
LA, thanks for showing me such an amazing time. Reconnecting with old friends and fostering the new relationships truly made my trip so special. Special thanks to Candice Wright for assisting me with the wedding. I can’t thank you enough. Chip Dizard, thanks brother for bringing your, “A” game. You crushed it! Soooo blessed to have some amazing friends!
PS Thanks Andreas for these awesome photos! #Respect
