Jazzy B

This one is gonna be a star....I can tell. She is a little funky, yet cute. She has her own style goin' on and doesn't care whose lookin'. I had a wonderful time shooting Jasmine today. She came over with her mom (who just happens to be one of my best friends) because she needed some head shots and a body shot for a casting call she was going to. Although the time we spent together was short, it was well worth it, her pictures came out great.




Whenever you are in need of professional pictures and your local JC Penney just won't do, don't hesitate to call me. I will be more than happy to personalize your photographic experience, because after all, j'marie photography is in the business of making people look good.
As for Jazzy B, I can't wait to take her pictures again. Hopefully she won't forget me when she blows up into a star, and I will be blessed once more with the opportunity to take her photos. ; )
Love, Peace, and Hairgrease

The First Cut.

Yes, we finally did it. We cut the boy's hair. I don't think I was really that ready for it. I thought I was. I hyped myself up, looked at all the ways it was unmanagable normally, and dreamed of all the ways it was going to look afterward. But when it came down to it and daddy started to actually cut it, I wigged out just a little. I tried my hardest not to cry in the shop. I was upset. It did not come out like I had imagined. I don't even think he looks like the same kid. He looks older now, not like my little baby anymore. I know it will grow back, and yeah it is not in his eyes anymore, and actually....four days in, I am loving it a little bit more. But like I said before, I don't think I was really all that ready.

Before

After




I know, I know, I am being a little dramatic, but hey this is my little boy, and this was his first cut. I am allowed to be a little dramatic... right?
Much love,

Cali Slideshow

So, I had a little free time today to mess with some of my pictures and I realized that I had not posted any pictures from my California trip earlier this year. Well, since most of my family checks this blog, I decided to put together a little slide show for them of my trip. Now, this is my very first attempt at a slide show, I had to go with whatever music the program I am using offered. I tried to take pictures of California in a photojournalistic style. There is no real rhyme, or reason to most of them, no meaning behind them, just me documenting Long Beach in my own eyes. And also becuase it has been a while since my grandpa has been to Cali, I really want to dedicate this video to him. I hope you enjoy gpa. Love you.

**edited to add: I am not sure why the video is so fuzzy, but it took me so long to get it together that I am not going to worry about fixing it... : )
