Natural Beauty

I was honored to work with fashion and beauty photographer Azwah Sadiq on this shoot with Playboy's first dread lock Goddess Nerissa Irving. She had such warmth and positive energy that radiated as bright as the sun's glow.I think it's about time that "Middle America" can see the light of day,and realize that there is not a carbon copy beauty queen .It is also important to embrace and represent change. I had a blast!Check out more on Nerissa@ www.myspace.com/Imperialgoddess19

The Empress


This is Style'on the Impress she is a reggae singer who always gives a great performance.One thing that I find most alluring about her is her ability to perfectly balance her feminine power with a rough masculine enrgy when she Chats like a dance hall Dj. The crowd never expects that booming voice to come from such a curvacious woman. All of her upcoming album project has been produced in the home of famed Reggae Superstar Bob Marley. She and I have both had the pleasure of meeting Mamma Marley who was a very down to earth and grounded woman full of love. We could feel the positive energy flowing through the entire house and imagined what it must have been like with all the music of Mr. Marley around the family playing his Guitar and singing. talk about living a dream. You can check out her music on her myspace page www.myspace.com/styleon305
