We are right in the middle of summer and as I prepare for my shoot this weekend in L.A., I can’t put off another day without sharing these photos I shot with the Williams Family. These guys are some of my favorite people and I was honored that they asked me to shoot their family photos for their new home. We shot the majority in downtown Frederick and some in there community at Brunswick Crossing. This was my first time in downtown Frederick and it’s really quite nice. I can see why people don’t need to go anywhere else 😉According to one of the locals “anything past Frederick is considered DC.” Works for me lol! The best part about this shoot was getting such great responses from the whole family. It’s one thing to get positive feedback from a person you’ve only spent a few hours with. But to know that your friends will cherish your work is a great feeling. Check out some of my favorite photos from day! don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!
I’m calling this a short film, because it’s actually the longest video I’ve done. I’ve been working with Happy Black Woman for a little over a year now and over the summer, I had the opportunity to shoot an E:60 style story video with the founder of Happy Black Woman. We shot this over three days in Coronado, a beach town just over the San Diego Bay bridge. We shot mostly in Rosetta’s home and on the beach. Side note…if you’ve ever listened to the podcast Dirty John, this is there area where all that took place. Crazy! Anyway, we both came with a blank script and formatted the story as we went. It’s really a story of someone who came from a childhood of lack, and created their own path to success. It’s about not living in the mindset you grew up with. This is a 13 minute story, but that’s just what it is. A story. So enjoy a few of these production photos and check out the video on the main page in the portfolio section.
