So in June 2010, I had a mini 4 day vacation in Dallas, Texas. That was fun. I loved the hot weather. Met up with my cousin ZeEnna Jenkins, she models. When she came to Chicago in 2009, we got to collaborate with one of my most favortie photographers, JBody Studios. The shot is in my gallery 'Beauty' category.
We didn't get to shoot together this time. I was so scared of the airport snatching all my makeup, and I would have died and/or slapped somebody if the airport had to take away ALL my makeup that I've spent so many years and so much $ to build. But alas, I blew it out of proportion. Once I got to Midway Airport, they only checked the small, clear bag pouch and my purse.... and that was it. Security needs to step their game up. Had me all scared for no reason >:( So yea, we didn't get to shoot this year unfortunately.
And everytime I hear Usher's 'OMG' song, I have to dance. Every single time I hear it, it's like my body gets possesed by it and I start doing this stupid looking robot dance and shake my afro at the same time.
I don't like that >:(
but it's fun :D
July has been my busiest month to date. For starters, I was the lead makeup artist for CLEONS Fall 2010 Ball Collection. I created the makeup look for the show about a month in advance, Chad Leon(the designer) approved, and the whole staff proceeded to make history on July 10th, 2010. The show was on display at the DuSable Museum in Chicago, IL. It was a very professional, exciting, one-of-a-kind, crazy, colorful show and I am really happy that I was chosen to be apart of it. Here are a few pictures from the show of the makeup I did.
The designer, Chad, will debute the video footage from the show tonight on youtube. Check around 10pm central time!
And check out his work on Model Mayhem!
A name that some may recognize but many, MANY people of the fashion industry in Chicago, IL know of her talented photography work. I've been fortunate to be able to work with models from ELITE modeling management and Agency Galatea together with Nuru almost every week this summer. She is SO passionate about fashion photography, and she's still in HIGH SCHOOL! Her work is so beautiful and she has a beautiful personality as well. Here are a few shots we've taken through out this summer.
