… but that was over 22 days ago. But to capture the excitement of an progressive, young lady in pictures is almost as fantastic as my birthday in the early 20’s. I won’t harp on the fact that she attends the greatest institution of higher learning: South Carolina State University. Word on the street is that her parents both are graduates of the university. I will not make a big deal that she is a member of the oldest Greek Black Sorority: Alpha Kappa Alpha. I am told is that my client is sorority sisters with Senator Kamala Harris. I am going to brag on the fact that my client has her eye on a career in Mortuary Science. I would say that Sidney is thinking smarter than most 22 year olds.
Our session was full of tons of fun and creativity. A good shot is always one that illuminates the model reflecting on the good and bad they have experienced over the years. I call this image, YOU CAN’T SEE WHAT I CAN SEE.
This session was all about photographing the Queen of the Month. Crowned from the top of her head, we continued to let the good times flow. With a slight glance into empty space, I like to reference this snapshot, WELCOME TO MY QUEENDOM.
We concluded our time together with pomp, circumstances and spunk. Who wouldn’t be happy about seeing another trip around the world? Who wouldn’t be excited to know as school comes to an end, there are mounds of opportunities that await you. This reflection, I refer to this as CELEBRATE MY BECOMING, illustrates the joy each person should have about not only our birthday but for everyday we are allowed to see God’s green earth.
Happy Birthday Month, Sidney. Continue to remain humble, sweet and young. #punintended
48 hours is a long time. 48 hours is so long that A&E created a show called The First 48. Though that show is centered around crime and murder, Amaya’s first 48 hours of her prom weekend was quite eventful and lead to no one being placed in a body bag.
On Saturday, Amaya and her date, Bryant met me for a pictures before going off to the prom. Now a senior at High School for Health Professionals, I was anxious to see my little buddy. Having known her all of her life, I was stunned at how she had grown and matured over the years …
Once she was camera ready, it was time to let the good times roll
But wait: there’s more. Amaya found herself back in front of my camera on Sunday. This time it was to snap a few images of the young lady after she had partied and had a great time at the prom. Now this time, it was all about capturing Senior images. You know … just a little a cap and gown action.
And just like that: Amaya is almost out of the nest. Here is a link to additional images from Amaya’s weekend: AMAYA’S WEEKEND. Although she is undecided where she will attend college, the future is bright for my “daughter.” Watch our world. Here she comes.
All too often, there is a lot emphasis placed on the word “one.” In sports, we hear, “We are number one!” It is common to listen to someone in education to ask a failing child to try “One more time.” In fashion, stores will tell the shoppers that “one size fits all.”
The company of WOODBURY COLLECTION feels that men’s fashion should flow away from the misnomer. Managed by Wayne Woodbury and Andre Watson, the team believes that a suit should not be the standard “pull from the rack” but it should be the extraordinary “perfect fit for the client.” Based in Charlotte, NC, Woodbury & Watson boaster the motto of, “Your Fit. Your Style.” Since 2009, the organization has outfitted clients in numerous east coast cities that range from Queens, New York to Miami, Florida.
Here are a few images of the dynamic duo …
The men were captured below consulting with past clients on their upcoming wardrobe additions
I read a quote that said, “A well-tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men.” I can’t speak for women nor can I speak for other men, but I place pride into my suits. I have found it not robbery to attain a slice of the Woodbury Collection. Listed below is a snapshot of the author of this blog in his chosen attire.
From the hugeness of my kool-aid smile, one can see that I am beyond pleased with my purchase. I am one that wants to support like minded entrepreneurs and look nice at the same time. Hopefully you feel the same. But the question is WOOD the natural fit work for you??? If so, reach out to Wayne & Dre.
There comes a time in every young man’s life where he must make a choice in high school. He must choose if he wants a school ring or finish the year with no bling. He must choose if he wants to continute his eduation at an institution of higher learning or purse other career opportunities. He must choose if he wants to parade through the promenade or pump his brakes foregoing the formality.
Justen, son of one of my closest friends (Dr. Jacquetta M. Chatman), made the decision to get formally dressed and attend the promenade (aka PROM) for his high school, Dutch Fork High School. Once the decision was made to attend, he had three items of contemplation that he had to nail down: (1) who would be his prom date, (2) what would he wear and (3) where would he took pictures. Insert MoSeawell & question number 3 was answered. After a consultation over pancakes, we concluded that the stage was set and we should proceed forth with PROM DAY 2018. Here is an image of the Prom Dude …
Although he was stunning in his Verse 9 bowtie & pocket square combination, the Diesel time piece was an excellent complimenting accessory. Entering from stage right, he had on his arm the lovely Maya. Maya commanded attention from the camera with her rose gold fashion display
Justen’s long time friend, Blake, stopped by with his date for a few shots. Feast your eyes on the FABULOUS FOUR …
And there you have it. Justen on his way to his senior prom. Special moment and wonderful choice. Here is a link to the images from that day: Justen’s Senior Prom . Life presents opportunities that we should experience for ourselves, instead of hearing what others may say. I read a quote once that summarized my thoughts to my clients for the day, “The purpose of life is live it to taste experience to the utmost to reach out eagerly and without fear for never and richer experiences.” Amen!
how did THAT work out for you?!?
Wow! The busyness of last week reminded me of the pre-parent days. My trigger finger was very active and I loved every moment of it.
The weekend started with a slow 75 run in preparation of an upcoming road race. Following that great display of style and grace, I was off to my sessions. Those sessions include time with a family, a senior with their cap & gown, and a local chapter of a sorority. All times with my clients were great moments that I am excited to share with you. In order for that to happen, I will need for you to come back. Come back soon and very soon. Snap at you later. BE EZ. PEACE!!! #moseawell #beEZpeace
