WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: GossYp and Aglit Italy

Gossyp Jai Nima Idowu JADO Images Fashion Style What Gets You Movin

I’m always looking for people, things, videos…anything, that inspires me.  Inspiration creatively, visually, mentally, spiritually, just something that moves me. I’ve been fortunate to not only meet, but sometimes shoot many who move me in some way. Because of this, I’m starting a new interview series where we get a chance to speak with some of these people who have moved me in some way and see what they have going on.


For the 1st interview post, I spoke with female music duo, GossYp. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting these beautiful sisters, Adina and Amina, a few time this year. Not only are these Brooklyn born, Long Island-bred girls, chill, down to earth, and nice, they are Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: BTS with SFX Photography & Ashley Trifiletti

18 Jul

On the second official day of summer I had the pleasure of shooting behind the scenes footage for Stephan B. Austin, of SFX Photography.  He specializes in shooting fitness models, and on this hot day, over at Orienta Beach Club, in Mamaroneck, New York, we shot fitness model and competitor, Ashley Trifiletti.  With the upbeat tunes that Ashley and her sister picked, we had a great early morning shoot and that sanguine vibe translated in the video.

Enjoy!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Storm Over the Boardwalk

15 Jul

Check out this video fashion story created by my friends at Twin Tomato Creative. It was shot for Relapse Magazine for their fashion spread called, Storm Over the Boardwalk.  It’s a fun, vibrant, psychedelic video…and all I can say is I kind of need those blue heels and an incredible hulk balloon in my life!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jason Mickle Photography

Hey Guys!  Back in late Spring of 2012 I assisted fashion photographer, Jason Mickle, on a fashion story that recently appeared in West East Magazine. The story is loosely based around the crucifixion of Christ, and paintings depicting that story. For some reason it’s called Step Into Wonder (I’m not sure why) but the spread came out beautifully.  I always learn so much when I work with Jason!

Here are a couple of pictures from the shoot, to see all of them you can visit here.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Week 8, Fall Diary

11 Jan

Thanksgiving Day week! Boy was I looking forward to a much needed break from work and school, and my trip down to DC to visit my best friend for the holiday’s festivities. I remember this week pretty clearly, because i tried a fashion experiment with myself. Basically I always visualize outfits, usually they end up being items that I don’t actually own, so that’s usually how I decide what will be my next purchase for my closet. This week though, well really Monday and Tuesday I visualized what I would want to wear ideally based on my mood, and figured out what I had in my closet that would most closely emulate that. I liked the results a lot, but by Wednesday I had a midterm to study for and packing to do, so I couldn’t put that much thought into recreating my wardrobe. I’m going to practice this method more in the Winter and see what I come up with.

This is a short week in my Style Diary, by the time I Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Inspirational Souls

Raedawn Johnson



My friend Raedawn Johnson was featured in Essence.com!  Raedawn is the founder of Orglamic Beauty and a celebrity makeup artist here in NYC, we’ve collaborated a couple of times, and I’m so happy that she’s getting some shine.  She’s such a great, energetic soul! Check out her great story, as well as a few tips to you aspiring makeup artists.

Here’s and excerpt:

” I was 21 years old, had just landed in New York City and was laser-focused on accomplishing one goal—becoming a well-known, well-respected TV and film actress. After five years of hearing casting directors tell me I didn’t “look ethnic enough” or my skills weren’t “good enough,” I decided I needed a plan B.” Go to Essence.com to read the rest of the Raedawn’s story.
