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.
Today's My Personal Soundtrack is very special to me because I'm interviewing my mother, Charlene Marr. She's my biggest fan and I love her for that. I love talking to her about her memories of my grandmother and family. She just lights up and I'm transformed to the place that she describes, as if I was there with her. In fact, she's part of the reason that I decided to do My Personal Soundtrack...because I knew that if she felt so convicted and alive when she told me memories about her life, wouldn't others? My Personal Soundtrack is my version of an oral history featuring everyday people and their lives. I'm honored to be a mere morsel in my mother's full life. Here's a little sneak peak of her charismatic and infectious personality. I am blessed to be her daughter. Enjoy!
