Even though fall has come and gone, I knew today would be a perfect day to show some never before seen pictures from my photoshoot for makeup artist Anna Miya for her web site, C-THRU MY EYES. Our model was the beautiful Kelcie, also known as FIRE! ¬†Kelcie’s blog, Playing with Fire, is an eclectic showcase of unique fashion and music. With snow falling all around NC today, it is the perfect day to let THE FIRE warm you back up!

I was thrilled to take pictures of my old friend Chrissy’s family on UNC’s campus… Her daughter Isabel is just the cutest thing and just seeing the three of them together puts the biggest smile on my face! I’m happy for you!

Congratulations to my good friend Bobbi Ruffin, who released her first record, Lost in Love, in November. We (of course) collaborated on the photos for the album, which I also designed and was HONORED to be a part of creating. The entire CD is AMAZING! My favorite songs are “Crushin’ feat. OhCee,” “Seasons,” and of course, “Lost in Love”! Make sure you check out Bobbi at her official web site. You can even preview & buy the CD online here. Congrats Bobbi!

Below are images from the release concert, which featured several songs from the album with the help of a slew of multi-talented individuals. Great job, y’all!
