I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational and encouraging stories of me and other broken people like me. We are all jars of clay who have been afflicted in every way, but not crushed...struck down by not destroyed.  Here, you do NOT have the right to remain silent, so as you read, grab your favorite snack and drink and leave a comment...share YOUR story. I can't wait to connect with you in this beautiful safe space.

The first time I spoke with Danielle, it was to gush over the love we both felt in Kascha and Henry’s engagement session, which can be seen here.

“To me, this is a movement and there can never be too many wedding blogs/sites dedicated to  women of color,” Danielle said. “Not only that, I wanted Chic Brown Bride to be a place where small business owners  in the wedding industry can come to have their work featured and be celebrated for their   accomplishments. “

Based out of my hometown of Atlanta, when she asked me to take headshots for her, I was so honored!! However, my schedule didn’t allow me to travel. But as God would have it, a month later, I decided to go down and surprise Ethan and we were able to meet up!! It was so nice to finally meet this lady!! She has such a sweet spirit and adorable laugh!!

Take a look into our time together:

  3. […] I couldn’t let the day go by without posting this! Two weeks ago today I met up with Sachel of Sachel Samone Photography in downtown Atlanta to do a photo shoot. It was everything and more! Just to give you guys a little background info..when I was working on the relaunch of the site I knew I wanted to get some professional pics taken. But I hadn’t quite figured out the deets of it, then out of the blue Sachel emails me.  We get to talking and we decide to work together but we didn’t know when or how as she doesn’t live here.  But, as luck would have it she was coming here to Atlanta to surprise her long distance boyfriend (but, really the surprise was on her as she got engaged, but I digress. ) I was up at 6am on the 4th of July ready and eager to get the day started! Please take a look below at some of the awesome shots she took!   It was such a pleasure working with her!  Sachel is such a sweetheart with an even awesome spirit to match! See more photo’s from the shoot on her site here  […]
