All-Star Couture: Fashion Show

Here are a few shots from the All-Star Couture Fashion Show that took place back in September.

This was an all male fashion show. The first one in Grand Rapids, actually. It featured some of our local athletes modeling fashion from local stores.

It was so much fun! I absolutely love fashion shows, and I would love to shoot a lot more of these. I felt so at home while snapping, it was an incredible sensation.

I also had the opportunity to capture the athletes/models as they prepped for the runway.

I put together this sort of digital portfolio at the beginning of 2014.

It was sort of a motivation tool to keep me focused on my goals.

It was such a pleasure to photograph this young aspiring teen model! Such a beauty! I see her going far in whatever it is she pursues and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful girl!!!

I had so much fun seeing these men!!!! I absolutely adore New Kids on the Block!!! I have been a fan since 89. I love those men as though they are family… they truly are a piece of who I am.
It was bittersweet going to this show. One of my best friends passed away this past October. We met because of these guys and remained friends from that moment on.  We met in middle school due to her wearing New Kids buttons and I asked to borrow one… and as they say… the rest is history.  I miss her dearly every day but this was difficult to go through without her. She would have either been right there alongside me or I would have been able to tell her about it and share in the excitement.

They put on such a good show! I walked away wanting more! I wish I could see them all the time… lol

I was really impressed with 98 Degrees! I forgot how much I liked them until I realized I knew just about every song they sang!

It truly was an enjoyable night!! the weather was perfect and the show was amazing!!! Wish I coulda seen Boyz II Men but ah well…

I am blessed to have been able to capture the some of the show with my camera and am proud of some of the shots!!

So glad that they  chose to go to Soaring Eagle!!! It might have been a bit of a smaller venue but it truly meant the world to us fans that were able to go!!!!

Cecil and kids

I always love collaborating with the lovely Latesha Lipscomb owner of I Got Face Cosmetic Concierge. This time was no exception. It was such a moving and wonderful experience being able to photograph this single father and his children. It is not every day you see a single dad step up the way he has. Kudos to him and all the other single dads out there taking care of their children!! You deserve so much more credit and recognition than what you get!!

Tonya – model

last summer I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Tonya.

she wanted to update her portfolio and asked me to be the photographer. considering she has worked with some of the big names here in Grand Rapids I was honored. I loved working with her! It is always fun working with family and the fact that she is very professional made it all that much better.
