Photography by !YODA

Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to model for !YODA and for jewelry designer, Lola de’Carmen.  The neckpiece that I modeled is just exquisite.  I loved it so much.  It’s been about six months since I’d last got in front of the lens for a photographer.  However, I had an absolute blast!  I also photographed a model by the name of Charlye Lee.  I’m currently working on those edits and will share in another post.

Here are a couple of images from yesterday’s shoot.  The first image is from the Lola de’Carmen jewelry line.  The second is the “Black Coffee” and yes, I was covered in coffee.  🙂

"Black Coffee"


I love both images a great deal.  What do you think??


Musing: In Front of the Lens with Neo Samo

A couple of months ago, I re-teamed with Neo Samo for a nod towards Boho-African chic.  I haven’t done a lot of headshots when I modeled, but this may be one of my favorites.

Bold, bright colors were the highlight of this image as well as an island feel.  What do you think of this shot?

Artist Highlight- Patrick Marcelino: Talent Unlimited

If you look up the word, “multi-talented” in the dictionary, I’m sure you will find Patrick Marcelino’s smiling face right next to the entry.  Yes, he is truly multi-talented in many creative genres. The Rotterdam, Netherlands native wears many hats and does it effortlessly.  I can’t even keep up with everything Patrick does because it blows me away.

Y’all ready to find out what his talents are?

*stretches fingers to type*

Patrick is a graphic designer, model, percussionist and singer for Forecast Jah Reign (click here for the link for the FJR post I’d done), producer, founder of Melanated Clothing, photographer, videographer, painter, practices capoeira, and  promotes parties.  *whew*  And he just turned 23 this past December.

I think he’s also a top chef, maybe a mechanic, but he’s not telling.  lol  Just joking.  (smiles)

Creativity flows in his blood and it’s the drive that keeps him going.  If he has all of this going for him now, imagine him in ten to twenty years from now.  Yes…I envision incredible success and longevity with this man.
