Back to New York

Hey folks. I'm flying back to NYC on Friday to shoot an up and coming music artiste, and I'm also looking forward to picking up a bit of gear while I'm there :D On Saturday I'm going to meet up with designer Karen Von Oppen and spend a few dollars on some wicked neck pieces that I've been dreaming about for the past month. Will also be bringing back some clothes from Vicious Dolls for a special shoot I'm having in November. Oh yes. Good times are a-coming.

When I get back it's straight into party planning for my soon-to-be-2 year old son's birthday :) Once October is out of the way I will be taking bookings again. Right now, I have too much on my plate with wondering what to bake for his tiny guests, and where I'm going to find warm clothes that will stop me from becoming an ice-cube (I'm not very good in even slightly cold weather).

I had a shoot with my sister on Saturday, and here are a few images.

Harajuku grrrl

I've been planning to do this shoot since last year when my friend Ceola was leaving for England. FINALLY Christianne, Gianna , and myself got together and did it. So this image is from yesterday's session. I can't stress on how much I admire Christianne's modelling. She's the best in Trinidad and Tobago and I am always so happy to work with her. More to come!

It's 2:14am and I've got to wake up in T-minus 4 hours to drop my son to school. I did a horrible thing today. I was reading the second book in the quite awesome Belgariad series, then I simply fell asleep - and when I fall asleep early I get too much energy at night and, well, here I am. Up and wide-eyed in the dark morning. So I decided to post an update just because I've run out of things to do online at this point.

I press enter to start a new paragraph, and realise I really have nothing to say. Lovely weather we're having :/

Anyway, to make this post worthwhile, here are some images I've recently done with designer Anita Bhatt and her Vicious Dolls line, and some clients work. I shot some girls in a scene where the had to point and guffaw at a male stripper yesterday, it was fun times, though I think in all our hysterical laughter we made the half-naked gentlemen a bit embarrassed . Poor guy will never model again I presume, haha. I'm going to have one last go at my book, maybe until the next chapter, then crawl into bed before the little one wakes up and jumps on my stomach, as is the norm at 6am.
