that Je Ne Sais Quoi

Y'all. Summer is here and it is H.O.T.  down in New Orleans. ACs are blasting and the lines to order a snoball wrap around the block. And let me tell you, this particular afternoon was scorching. Luckily I spent it at the beautiful Race & Religious for an on location boudoir shoot with my client Alicia.

When we first met I asked Alicia what it was that drew her to R&R. She said she has a love of texture and all things glamorous and all I could think was "DING DING DING. We have a match!" Instantly I could see all of the gorgeous images we would make and damn did we have fun doing it. She brought along a ton of props including these beautiful bright pink hydrangeas that I just love, and after a glass of champagne she was really having fun dancing around and going through the poses with me. Alicia is a bride to be and has been putting a lot of work in at the gym.  What better way to celebrate herself and she got to make a little black book for her soon-to-be-hubby too ;)

All in all we photographed eleven different looks in three hours... here are a few of my favorites

The Passion That Ignites

Abigail and I met at a local photographer's meet up and shoot out. I had recently started second shooting for Sweet Lovely where I met my now friend & colleague Lee, who invited me.
It was a night of delicious food, laughter.... and plenty of cocktails :-) ha anyway I also met Abigail that night. Lee asked her to be our subject and she said yes. I don't think she realized what was about to happen...that 15 photographers would be photographing her at the same time. Surprise! Ha ha well I'm happy to say she lived. She even enjoyed it she said. I thought that was mighty courageous and I knew I'd like this girl.
Since then we have become personal friends. She's quirky, determined, and passionate. She sees life vividly. She's into theatre and is also a member of TULA, a Ladies A Cappella group at Tulane University (who performed Destiny's Child's Bills, Bills, Bills in front of an audience -- badass!), she's volunteered in Emergency Rooms, was philanthropy chair of her sorority, she's a Tulane Peace Corps Ambassador, a research assistant at the LA cancer research center, and currently she is raising money to go on a month long trip based on service with Tulane's Compassion in Action Campaign... long story short she's totally awesome and I admire her because she knows that her fervent passion can do good...then she goes out and she does good things. She combines passion and action to live out her mission and I think that is just magical.
