So Let Me Tell You About NOVEMBER.....

I have had such a lovely time this fall with photography. I did a fall wedding (prior post) and then came November, my birthday month. I have set out on a quest to challenge myself by taking photos in this month that either ignite, inspire or I simply find beautiful!

I hope you enjoy them with me!

Brandi and Xzavia

Brandi and Xzavia are meant to be together. Really! They have known each other since high school and as destiny will have it they crossed paths again as adults. When people are around them you can genuinely see how much fun they have with each other. They share jokes, laughter, and love together. They are not like any other couple I've ever seen. Its so refreshing to see two people loving each moment they have together. thus came the day they were married, October 19, 2013.

1917 Bistro

Just showcasing small gems found in the city of Detroit. We need more positive publicity instead of the energy used to highlight our deficiencies.

I'm Still Here!

It has been quite some time in between posts. That's because I have been facing some challenges and I am working them out. But here are a couple of my favorite activities...."food posts".

Ethiopian Feast

On a recent visit to The Blue Nile, located in Ferndale, MI, I reminisced about the old restaurant which was located in Downtown Detroit in a district called "Greek Town". The former restaurant had handmade artifacts from the Ethiopian region and the food was close to authentic as possible.
Real honey wine was made on the premise and the wait staff was pleasant and was happy to explain dishes using the original tongue.

Fast forward, the restaurant has now relocated a several miles away from town to a smaller community. It still holds a small amount of African detail but has now lost a lot of authenticity to please American palates. Patrons can now expect a "watered down" taste of spices and a extremely lean choice of dishes on the menu. Any former food connoisseur of the old establishment will miss the genuine staff who greeted you with the original tongue and greeting and presentation of the language. It just gave you the perception that you were eating right at the table of someone who actually lived in Adis Abbaba

I enjoyed my meal at "The [new] Blue Nile in part because I wanted so badly to remember the old style food and it's taste. The Doro wat, the Tekil Gomen, spicy lentils all cooked in niter kebbe ( clarified butter sauce) and berbere (a mixture of seven spices cooked to a spicy paste) Ethiopian food and culture will always be one of my favorites.

Portraits Work

This has been a wild year to say the least but the most exciting thing about it, is that I've worked on some amazing photos. If you like the portrait work please jot me a note!

Super stoked to finally get a set with Stephanie. We had planned to get together and shoot awhile ago but finally we both decided that the weather was cooperating....and it happened!

We have some future projects planned but I am very happy to capture and share these shots with you!
