Behind the Scenes of a photo shoot.

I had the honor to coordinate a photo shoot for UMOJA magazine’s feature article on Women in Faith.  We gathered, from various churches, most of the Black WOMEN ministers in Madison, WI. This is the first time that they had been gathered in one location.

Watching their interactions and the feeling the accompanying atmosphere was amazing.  This has been my favorite shoot.

I will share the final photo in March 2012.

Oh CHIC Fancy Huh!?

Of course you all know yesterday was my 2akhdajyuhjf birthday and since it fell on a Monday I made sure to celebrate the weekend before. Yesterday I spent my time recovering from what was a very fun and interesting night with the girls. Before I stepped out for the night I took a few quick shots of my look.

If you follow me on instagram, you would know that a week or so before my birthday I posted a sneak peek of my alleged birthday dress. I always have an idea of what I’d like to wear weeks in advance and usually stick with it. However, a few days before my festivities I saw a picture of Jessica White looking GORGEOUS in a blue dress with a super sexy high split and at that moment I started rethinking my look all together. So I went on a mad hunt for…

I was going to write about something entirely different from the beginning, but this post will be about birds. A specific bird that is. No, he/she hasn’t got a name.. or well… hmm. I could always think of one. Her name will be Thaléa 🙂 (you see what I did there, making her a girl?).

So, who is this bird, this Thaléa? You ask. It is the bird my mum found outside our backdoor just minutes ago. She had flown straight into the window and at first we thought she might’ve broken something so she took her inside. I was overjoyed (that we had a little bird in our house, not that she might be damaged) and ran for my camera. And no, she wasn’t hurt, just a little shaken and we released her after a few minutes.


Meet Thaléa 😉 And by the way, those aren’t my nails, it’s…

Cecilia Paredes was born in Lima, Peru.
The photography of Paredes constitutes and attempts to demonstrate that the body of the women – her own body – is a sacred zone, not profane, to restore its perception as something miraculous amidst the technological chaos that currently surrounds us.

Cecilia is interested in using art to explore the boundaries of nature. As a photographer, she often uses her own body as a medium for presenting a dialog between the spirit and the natural world. Working with her assistants, she creates photo performance based works that have her seamlessly blended into backgrounds. Acting as both the photographer and the subject, she uses make-up, body paint and any costume she needs to make her virtually disappear.

Camouflage is a game we all like to play, but our secrets are as surely revealed by what we want to seem to be as by what we…
