I don’t know when exactly I started taking photos. I believe it was somewhere in high school when I got one of those Cybershot cameras. Or maybe even before when I had the disposable cameras. You know the ones. When you had to actually get your film developed. Those were the days. Advertisements
Junior high school students sure do grow up fast. I don’t know these girls personally, but I did discover that a child I knew when she was a widdle girl was also attending a Spring Ball and I felt like a crypt keeper. Why my ass so ancient? What is going on? Who authorized this? I mean I know they have to grow up but golly. I do not like Fort Christiansvaern as a location for photos because it needs a paint job, lawn care, our mentally ill are roaming about unsupervised because healthcare is a myth, and it’s overdone. Stick a fork in it, that location has been played to it’s death. I can work the area if need be, but let the fort and all it’s history of slavery die. At some point I’ll talk about our strange obsession with relics of colonialism, but that’s not what this is about. Anyways, this was yet another fun session. It took a little while to have the girls warm up to the camera and …
I think I fell in love to photographing kids. For starters, their personalities are amazing. Secondly, they are so effortless in their happiness. Those genuine smiles make your ovaries act up and you gotta remind them that kids are cute, but hella expensive. I refuse to budget for another one, but lord I can babysit…no..I lied not even that much. I mean, I can swoon over your kids from a distance, or at least take their photos. Yeah, that sounds reasonable. So this little doll graduated from kindergarten and is off to first grade. Pretty self explanatory if you watch the photos. She was serving face when she got comfortable. I can see her being a little model in the future. She was giving me black girl magic all the way through. Also, I’m just applauding mommy for her hairstyle and clothes. Cute, age-appropriate, and nothing over-the-top. Her family helped tweak her “poses” for the shoot and even worked camera two. It was just such a fun Sunday. It was also when I learned that …

“Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference.” — Arie Pencovici Model: Nalie Frederick Major: Mass Communication University: University of the Virgin Islands (HBCU) Location: St. Croix, Virgin Islands Photographer: Local Lady Photography Creative Directors: Patricia Francis and Nalie Frederick
I need my glasses to see. But perception happens without them Now that I’m done being deep, these are my recent pair of glasses thanks to Vision Center in the Sunny Isle shopping center on St. Croix. I always wanted to try a big pair of glasses but thought it wouldn’t suit my face. If you check out my Instagram (same name, localladymedia) you can be the judge of if they do or not. P.S I like them very much. My eyesight hasn’t gotten any better but at least it hasn’t gotten worse.
