I recently completed a goal on my List of Personal Enrichment (aka my bucket list). I've always wanted to take professional pictures with my mother and recently I accomplished that goal!! It was AWESOME! The best day ever!! These pictures and video are the "behind the scenes" footage from the day. I don't have the pictures from the photo shoot yet. More pics to come!
I am sending love to everyone who was involved in helping my vision come true. Oprah says the love you feel is directly affected to the love you give. I am truly blessed! Thanks to Hope Lynn, Lance Omar Thurman, Dani Rae, Delilah Spencer, Arnold Sams and Darcy "Bud" Green. We had a ball!!
MORE PICTURES TO COME!!
Here's video from the shoot. Watch my mama do the 'crip walk'. Shenanigans!
Here's another video of me attempting to bop. Not a good look.
I am a Fantasia fan all day long. ROCK SOUL LOVE baby!! I think she's tenacious, brave and honest. Plus, when I met her she was truly, truly a nice person. And believe me, not everyone I met has been nice.
Over at NECOLEBITCHIE.COM, I read a story where Fantasia dishes on what advice she'd give her younger self. Love this because we live and we learn. This advice is def one of those "if I knew then what I know now" kind of things.
On What Advice She Would Give Her Younger Self Just Stepping Into the Business
Watch people. Watch everyone that says they love you. Watch everyone that says they’re gonna help you. Always be in control of your stuff. Always read your contracts. Always know what you’re walking into, and always look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself who you are. Tell yourself how beautiful you are. Love yourself. Don’t rely on somebody else to give you that love. Always go after everything that you want, not what everybody else thinks you should do. Stay strong. Stay true to yourself. Watch friendships. Watch relationships. Protect your money. Make sure that you know what’s going in and what’s going out. Make sure you keep good people around and not ‘yes’ people, but people who actually care for you and adore you and don’t want to see anything happen to you. That don’t want nothing from you but just to see you grow and to be the best woman you can be.-
