Felicity Magazine Strikes Back! Or......errrrr, again? Warning! Blog Post Heavily Saturated with Sarcasm.

Once again the creative blitzkrieg of Felicity Magazine in New Orleans forced me to endure agonizing working conditions.  Considering the undeniable fact that I'm just a ridiculously giving human being I felt obliged to accept their invitation to endure wickedly talented models showing off Local Designer, Alicia Zenobia's creations as well as a regional beachwear brand by the name of Mermania.

I also can't forget that in addition to the previously mentioned "Easy on the Eyes group", I had to struggle through the flipping awesome hair styling of Hans and Adrian Billot, AKA, The BeKrewe and the staggeringly wicked smarts and talent of Midori Stories Professional Makeup Artist, who once again send me into a deep depression with the reminder that I'm stupidly awful in doing my own hair and makeup when I go out!  

Somedays, as I'm sure we can all agree, are worse than others.  However I soldiered on and got the images that I hoped to get and a few that just couldn't have been planned and that's not the worst way to spend an afternoon I suppose.  Silver Lining People!  Look for it! If that beauty and brains behind Felicity Magazine, Miss Sarah Smith(soon to be Mrs.) calls me back I suppose I'll fight through another back breaking work day with them! Heavy lies the crown some might say!  Enjoy!

Fashion and BBQ!

Wind the clock back a few months. A dear friend invites me to a Saints game.  Since I'm not completely mad I accepted.  She then suggests to meet at a new watering hole/eatery called Black Label Icehouse which I'm more than happy to have agreed upon.

Immediately upon sitting down I realized what a great location to do some photos at. Damian, the owner/operator of said establishment is a salt of the earth fellow who after sharing a shot of Jack and conversation over some metal music told me that I could come take photos at his establishment anytime.  Check and mate!!  

These are the shoots I live for.  After setting up a brilliant support element of Makeup Artists and Stylists with equal parts skill and crazy we set off to Black Label Icehouse with visions of Grace Jones in our hearts and BBQ on our minds.  YEAH!  That's how we do it!  

No outfits were harmed with BBQ sauce on this shoot!
