This Winter has been so wonky. One day I’m wearing a coat with layers of clothing underneath, the next day I’m in a sleeveless tank. It makes no sense. On one of those “nice” days, I asked one of my friends, Derek, to take some pics of me. He’s an awesome photographer and I was just hoping to get some of that awesome rubbed off on me.

Despite the hormonal weather, Derek was able to capture a few Miami-esque shots for me.

If you can keep a secret, I’ll tell you one. I really want to be a model but for obvious reasons, I cannot. And not so obvious reasons (like not being able to pose).

He told me to laugh…

But I was like, no. Lol.

Did I mention he’s pretty much a celebrity photographer?! I was at home one night watching re-runs of The Braxton Family Values when I saw him shooting Towanda’s 40th birthday photos. I’m officially cool by association. Winning at life.

Anyway, if you’re in Atlanta, give him a buzz. He has a knack for making you feel comfortable and not looking crazy.
