Everyday is a blessing to be celebrated. With the uptick and rise of COVID-19, we lose track of the great things we have experienced. Sadly everyone is not making it to see another day. Milestones of a birthday should be embraced even greater with the new uncertainty of life. When Debora told me she wanted to have a 60th photo shoot, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to help make her vision come true.
Being a product of Corona, New York, I knew my hands would be full with trying to make the “CITY GIRL” satisfied. Although she moved down south and attended Voorhess College, I was going to try and channel my inner creative spirits to exceed her expectations. So off we went to the South Carolina State House. After Debora, hit the scenes for her first shot, I was like, “Hmm. Where do we go next?”
She was in the moment. With the help of Debora’s sister, Yolanda, we were able to find our groove and create some breath taking images.
Debora, the mother of 3 and grandmother of 11, planned a birthday party and travel to Las Vegas for her celebration. She has always been a straightforward and gentle person, since meeting her years ago at our church, Brookland Baptist Church. Yes, I can sing. 🤦🏾♂️. I pray her 60th birthday, which was December 19, was grand and all she hoped it would be.
Well, this is where I get off. Chat at you. Be ez … click clique.
I love to workout. I love pushing my body to new levels. I love helping others enjoy their workout & push their bodies to new levels. Joseph & I are running partners (shout out to THE CREW). And we have spent intimate times together in the early morning hours pushing our bodies. 👀
When Joseph texted me a few days ago, I immediately thought, “what did I do wrong? We didn’t run together today or yesterday, so he can’t be sore because of me.” He wanted to consult on my other soul passion: photography. Joseph wanted to have pictures made with his sweetheart: his wife, Vickey. He told me they hadn’t taken photos as a couple in years. The two met in typing class at Lower Richland High School and are the parents of three beautiful young ladies (M’Chaelah – 20, Wylsonne – 17, Sadie – 14).
So off we went. Man, let me tell you … the Assistant Principal & Romance Writer were hard to separate. I joked around during the session about giving me passion like they didn’t have three kids. Why did I say that?!? The Browns gave me all of the goodness!
The Browns not only make great images but they have fun. When I inquired of their interests, I was told they enjoy (1) Looking at All the Smoke and I Am athlete sports podcasts, (2) Working on DIY home improvement projects, (3) Taking road trips and (4) showering together. 😳😳. I guess that is a easy way to save money on water. 😂
As you could tell, the session was a success. I had heard a lot about Mrs. Brown but little did I know she was an author. Here is a link to all of her books and products.: Author Ella Shawn’s Products. Very impressed with her gifts and talents! I had a great time with the Browns. For those persons considering MoSeawell Photography’s service, I ask, “What did Brown do for you?!?”
Well, guess this is where I get off. Snap at you later. BE EZ. PEACE!!! #moseawell #clickclique #beEZpeace
To attend an HBCU (Historical Black College and University) is a learning experience. The pride and confidence most students receive is insurmountable! Graduates leave their institution of higher learning with nuggets often not received at other schools. They essentially enter into the world and make strides of excellence.
My client, Dr. Jacquetta M. Chatman, is a proud and successful graduate of Benedict College. After leaving Benedict, she went on to attain her Masters in Divergent Learning (Columbia College) and Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership (Nova Southeastern University). She has made tremendous impacts throughout these United States and Benedict College found it was the perfect time for their child to come back home.
For the 32nd Annual Harambee Festival, Dr. Chatman was asked to be the Keynote Speaker for the Black Intelligentsia Series Honor Inductions Program. How cool!!!! I think I was more excited to receive the call to document her speaking engagement than she was excited to be asked to return to her old stomping grounds. All I could think about was hearing of her story of being a college dropout, who returned to school, graduated, became a successful educator and entrepreneur along the way. When she took the stage at Antisdel Chapel, I almost forgot to start taking pictures because I was ready to hear her speech.
Eventually, I got it together and began to do the job I was hired to do. Needless to say, she didn’t disappoint me at all.
Wow. I had no idea she was going to sing to the people!!!! I have heard Dr. Chatman speak many times over the years but this one was a little more special. She was able to pour into her speech a summary of who she is and package it for the students to see she too had been where they sat. She spoke from experience that hard work, dedication and perseverance speaks volumes. Not only does it speaks volumes, it is recognized and makes you Keynote speaker at your alma mater.
I guess this is where I get off. Snap at you later. BE EZ. PEACE!!! #moseawell #clickclique #beEZpeace
