Weekend at a Glance: Color Me Atlanta #89

I frequently have visions of projects involving beautiful women of color. I envision myself directing those shoots. I stopped dreaming about it and reached out to some beauties.

For Colored Girls Who Could No Longer Stand the Cold in Atlanta. Yes, that was us on Sunday. Me, four girls and 12 colorful polka-dotted balloons.

Finally, we can properly welcome Spring. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off a new season than with beautiful Black women of color. I gathered some of my favorite stylish bloggers and fashionistas for a colorful photo shoot this past Sunday.

Of course nothing ever goes as smoothly as planned. Don’t let the sunshine fool you. It was FREEZING. I don’t know what was worse, the windchill or continuously getting slapped in the face by the balloons, lol. I cannot thank these ladies enough for braving it all just for me.

  1. The photos came out AMAZING and I would never have known the weather wasn’t as planned if you didn’t say so. Thank you for all those bright colors and warm smiles–it feels just a little bit closer to spring. xx
