Picture It Wright!!

That’s a real one in your reflection…

Without a follow, Without a mention…

You really pipin’ up on these n*%@$…

You gotta, be nice for what, to these n*%@$

I got behind the camera, again, this time for Johnathan Wright of Picture It Wright. Never a dull moment. It was great energy from John, and if you know anything about me I am thee shiest, however I’m an extreme extrovert, though my creativity comes from my introverted days. I met John originally at the Ultimate Powershoot brought to you by Nabila Yasamen El-Bey, this past February at the Valentine edition. And as always this go around, he kept that same energy!

Once comfort kicked in it was, ‘Lights, Camera, Action!‘ You gotta be nice for whatttttt???!! Lol. My solar plexus chakra has been calling out for me to bloom and shine not only during the sunny days either. Oh and if your not hip on chakras it’s just fancy term for the exact imbalances that I’ve been working on and going through.

It’s been taking me forever to be comfortable in my own skin. So worried to come around others because of the indirect energies put out to force you into a box of what they believe you to be, however I know myself. And John has done a great job of capturing my oshun spirit, blooming bright than any sunflower in the field!!

If you have any events such as, weddings, maternity, graduation, studio, commercial, etc basically you need something captured for life John Wright of Picture It Wright is the guy you need to link with!

The way these pictures are building my portfolio I should look into becoming a brand ambassador for more photographers, hmm what you think?? But anyways && as always Smooches!!

Freek Show Festival: Rico Nasty!!

“When I step out,

***ches stretch they neck out,

I don’t never stress bout,

What chitter-chat bout…”

‘Party Going Dumb’ -Rico Nasty

What an outside of the box event, artistry were presented, shown, and exposed to an higher realm than the norm. Saturday evening at the old Turner Elementary School in Wilkinsburg, it was transformed into what Feline Entertainment called “The Freek Show Festival” with headline act by Rico Nasty herself.

From vendors such as Shawneca Reed the Shade Queen herself; ShadedByTheQueen, Baiyinah Brookins owner of Frank & Myrhh; she had some dope handmade African printed fannie packs, representatives from Planned Parenthood was promoting and reinforcing positive sex and sex education; I mean why not we’re at the Freek Show for goodness sake, lol!! Other vendors were Electric Catfish, Tinned Pineapple, and Shadaha Payne of @dopee_is_me The Detail Shoe Store not only vended their dope customs designs they made a dope vans custom pair for Rico Nasty herself. The hype is real when it comes to the Detail Shop, so make sure you inquire about some exclusive threads!

Deejays from all over were in attendance and did awesome vibrated sets for each crowd on both floors. I totally forgot to mention the event took place on more than one floor, more than one deejay, more than one vibe. DJ Femi opened up on the main stage and kept the crowd in the right zone while doors open and the finishing touches were added to the aesthetics of the event.

I freaking finally got to listen to Slim Tha DJ live and it was soooooo worth the wait. Ratchet Ivy League held it down and let her hype be just as live as the crowd she vibed with. DJ Based Grace was electrified and turnt to extreme levels, side note she’s a cutie!! So many female deejays were in the building it blew my mind to see creativity at this level of hype. Nothing but #BlackGirlMagic!!

Flash was needed downstairs in the 21+ section, but without it you would see the neon colors light up the dark rooms before you head in to see the pole talent and dancers. Oh, by the way I’m blonde now, how ya’ like me now?!! Oh and peep the headgear it was made by another local designer named Sparkle Graham, definitely someone to look out for! However, the walls glowed with colorful artwork by graphic designer Harley Skibicki.

1Hood dropped some jewels with their cypher performance. CPX3 knew how to keep the crowd jumping with wavy knowledge. Latia #EFB brought the audience to life. Rico Nasty brought her inner beauty outward and if it’s one thing I know Rico will “…do this sh*t for fun fun fun fun fun, got the party going dumb dumb dumb dumb“.

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to get invited to see and experience and share with everyone the excitement that Feline Entertainment to the city. There were other media outlets such as Hotxx Magazine and Original Telegenic Productions. Grindmode was in the building, too!! Make sure to check them out because they got some great footage, as well. It was a sight to see you’d have to be there to believe. Until next time, smooches!!! Oh and shout out to Bree McGee of Pirate Gang family, she sees and believes in the vision of Studio24!!

Davon Watson thee sweetest, humblest person ever to meet. He has started a venture that’s known to many but travel by a few. He is the owner of creator of the most recent clothing line “Less Travel” and because he’s the hack of all trades he also is the owner of his owner photography company as well called “DLW Photography”.

Davon remains consistent with his work and he keeps his images simple and engaging allowing for the consumer and customer to crave for more. He’s recently expanded to his line creating more style geared towards females and males, whereas before it was more of a unisex approach allowing for wider range of awareness.

Dream. Something. Bigger!!

“Goddamn, what a time, what a year…

We are what them young boys fear…

I kill, never been killed, that’s real, no lies…

You can tell that from our pulse right now…” ~Goldlink

I had the pleasure of finally getting a chance to link with Capo himself. One of the originators of DSB, Dream Something Bigger, a business that started 10 years ago with a group of friends from the east side of Pittsburgh. It was the respect, love, and support of one another and from the community that has helped root the establishment into the business it has flourished to today.

I first met Capo originally earlier this month at #TheUltimatePowershoot mixer that was brought together by Nabíla Yasamen El-Bey. And just to show networking at its finest, flash forward me and Capo are sitting down inside of Panera Bread in Bakery Square conversing about black business and what we can do to collectively gain the right economics to keep business sustainable.

Not only is Capo an artist but DSB, Dream Something Bigger, has branded clothing; they’ve also provide the services of videography, photography, graphic designs, and promo services. Recently, they have started down the lanes of producing events in regards to parties; you never really know what to expect with the way business has evolved for DSB.

MH Photography!!

“Pose for the camera now, flick flick, pose for the camera now, flick flick…”

Yo baby yo baby yooooooooooo, man when I say I’m never camera ready today wasn’t going to be the day for that foolery. Got a chance to link with Michael Harris, Mikey for short. Side note: don’t quote me cause i can call him that I don’t know ’bout the rest of y’all, lol. I had a chance to nitpick his brain about his business endeavors and his recent flourish of business through photography.

After a drawn out five years of employment at Pepsi, Mikey positioned himself to be the man in charge of himself, boss status, literally. He made a need for the people a purpose for him to fulfill, so far so good. Sometimes it takes the pressures of life to force the diamond from within to shine through.  Make sure to check out his website to look over his work and to contact him for work!!
