Fashion out of this world: Shooting with J World Photography

J World or Jay is just a treaure to shoot with. He has so many ideas and themes that can really bring out the quality in a photograph. When I took this shot I didn't know he had something else in mind but at the end of the day , I think it's beautiful.

The whole color on black and white was an awesome touch and I really appreciate him for taking the time to really showcase me but also his amazing talent .

Here are some more shots taken by the Young Miami Mogul himself.

I loved these two it was sooo cuters. I will post another one that I am holding a pencil and books showing that school girl charm I always had.( lol)

Thank you J World ( Jay) for your patience, your hard work and I am so thankful to have people like you in my corner.

Toodles for now

GEM : Shooting with Driven :::

I truly loved this photo and it's a favorite picture of me by alot of people. It was a pretty interesting shoot to be very honest. The shoot did include video and it was pretty nice. I loved how they managed to transform my eyes in the leopard pattern in my eyes to match my swim suit piece. I had a great time shooting with them and I'm supposed to be shooting with them once again for future work.Driven models is a team of people who I truly think are amazing. They really try to inspire and teach the models to become more than just a cute face. Driven Models is a netowrk of individuals who are showcasing the beauty of the carribbean through film, fashion photography , and model development. I really am thankful and blessed to know them and I wish them the best in the years to come.

Hopefully soon I'll be able to show you some updated photos from Driven Models.Here are some more photos of me below

Alot of people like this one too. I think it was pretty cool they had a yellow background to my photo.

I thought this photo is really fun and high energy.

Most people often wonder wow you do so much dancer, model,mua , stylist, singer & mc and a director of a new online high fashion magazine "The Miami Style" what's your real goal? I love the arts and I try to express all that I am good at. Little by little I came up with more and more stuff highlighting more things I can come up with. I love music it completes me. It's not just singing the music or writing a few lines either. Let me explain.

It's the power you get on a stage while perfoming a song. Whether I am just dancing, singing , doing runway or full performing all into one. It's the awe the crowd gets when your outfit is unique, the sway your hand makes when you hear the upbeat of a rhythm , the expression of your fans who admire your courage to perform and that's why I continue to do what I do.
To me it's more than that. It's not just a single , photograph, runway show, I am pathing the way for the youth to continue on the legacy of appreciating the fine arts ; never allowing those dreams to die.

I hope in my later years I can look at all my accomplishments and reflect and say I did something good in the world. I am going to use my  quote I put in my magazine.

"Nothing is impossible. We are the historians of our time and as our lives continue on we continue to paint pictures of possibilities to those who feel that the things we love most are impossible. Our dreams, goals, and desires can be accomplished through our passion that nothing can stand in our way other than ourselves."

Reggaelution: Shooting with Cj Marryshow

How can you get that island feel in a shoot? I decided to try something a little different when i shot with
CJ Marryshow this year. I have shot with him before and I did the girl next door type of shots but this time,
I wanted it to be little more urban. I decided to make my lips more dramatic than usual. I am known for my natural plump lips so why not try something daring for a change.

So I played with a liquid lipstick by Wet n Wild and a nice gold lip colour lipstick by Milani Cosmetics.I had to draw out the liner in red and middle and middle bottom lip with a gold liner.  Then I filled in the color with the liquid crimson red on the sides and in the middle and bottom middle of the lip, I filled in the gold lipstick. It made a beautiful contrast.
The eyes were done with ME cosmetics( same company of MAC) where I used a darker shade of chocolate brown  on the eyelid and darkened in the creases of my eyes with a nice nior( black). The upper part of the eye lid was then highlighted with a soft gold and silver. Once again I didn't want to make a dramatic splash on my eyelids because this time I wanted to showcase my lips.
I call this piece reggaelution. RED GOLD AND GREEN were the  colors I decided to work with.

Foundation and powder was from Iman Cosmetics . Hair was designed by me by Wig clips that I personally made for this shoot. I decided to finish off this theme with a fierce jacket that I baught in Dots Retail Stores for less than 9 dollars and got a cute chain from Rainboaw Department Stores for 1 dollar and poof Reggaelution was born.Earings was provided by Simply Fashions .

I really had a great time working with CJ Marryshow . He is a definately a great person to work with.

Well toodles for now

In September of 2009, I was the featured model for the popular custom car and bike magazine South Florida Ridez. In this photoshoot I was posing on the biker's dream machine " Harley Davidson."

So a while ago I took on this position to apply to become a featured model for the new beer "Landshark Lager" and I was so excited. I couldn't believe how much the advertising company loved my look. They were looking for an island girl look for their new beer campaign for Florida. I decided to give it a try and poof here I was Miss Landshark. All summer of last year I was on posters for this new beer celebrating the football season. I was so honored and thrilled I couldn't even believe it.

It is a year later and now I am on the billboard in Miami Florida nearby 119th street and 22 avenue in Miami Florida. It is a great honor to be apart of this campaign and I really hope for more opportunities like this is in the future. I will have a shot of this billboard when I update this blog very soon. As for now I am just thankful for the opportunity and I am so amazed to see me on a Billboard it's one of my goals that I really wanted.

OTB: Over the Bridge Photography

This photographer slash manager for local artists such as Ermac; he always manages to wow's the crowd with his dynamic photographs. He is known for shooting Miami's exclusive top video vixens we have grown to love such as Metisha Miss January for Htm Calendar, Maritza Izquierdo aka Miss Miami and of course my self Miami's Little ray of sunshine .

His work goes great lengths to the hip hop world known as the most extreme and sultry photographer in Miami. What are the plans of this company OTB? Well, he is a great artist but he is also the founder of OTB Ent ( Over the Bridge Entertainment) where he is a manager for the up and coming Rap Artist Ermac.
I see nothing but good things to come for them and I can't wait to see what's next for the years to come.
