Photography | Portrait of my Sister

My sister cut her hair before I did 2 months ago for reasons best known to her. Unlike me however, she is yet to embrace the freedom that comes with it and is on the journey to reversing the effects of the clipper by growing her hair back. Did I mention she doesn't carry her hair in it's natural kinky, coily state? She literally can't wait to get a relaxer on it again.

I'd been wanting to do her makeup and take a picture of her ever since my photography & editing skills improved. This was in a way my way of saying that she looked great but she disliked the pictures all the same and doesn't even know I'm posting this one.

I like it though. There's a calmness in her eyes and no agitation which shows that she was looking forward to a positive outcome. So here's a portrait of my sister. I hope you like it as much I do.

Photography | Because I'm Happy

I'll be on leave for 2 weeks and totally excited about that.
I'll be able to wake up at 9am everyday, lol. You know I'm not going to do that right? I'm too much of a workaholic.

What I'm looking forward to doing most is work on my photography and editing. For a newbie in the photography scene I'm not doing too badly *even if I do say so myself*. Teaching myself digital marketing, I'm now able to learn from online content and have mastered a couple of photoshop techniques from YouTube videos. Not enough though, but I'm getting there fast.

During my leave, I've planned a beauty & fashion shoot with a fellow blogger and thoroughly looking forward to it as it'll be the first photography creative work I'll be doing.
Then, let's see if I can step up my product shots too why don't we.
Anyway, because I'm happy.......

Photography | A Touch of Pink

It's not what you can do but what you do with what you can do that matters.

I love taking pictures of people. Half the time, I'm the blogger helping other bloggers take great pictures with their cameras or the one peeping out the window for that great sunset shot.
I love beauty too.
I mean, I'm a great makeup artist (even if I do say so myself). I love trying out new products, taking beautiful product shots, swatching the product to check out the colour payoff & pigmentation.
I wonder, why not bring these 2 together?
A skill and a passion - from 2, make them one.

somehow, the lack of accessories makes this picture all the more cleaner. I love her frozen smile, the texture of the braids, her hairburns, the ribbing of the dress.

#28daysofred | Day 5 - Be Happy with Taos Eko City

Did you know that more often than not the rare act of stretching your lips and baring your teeth in a smile or bubbling laughter is enough to change your mood from down in the dumps to light and airy?

Oh, and by now I'm sure you all know that a gorgeous red lipstick makes your teeth look sparkling white.

Give it a try and let me know if it didn't work *wink*
