I stepped on the scene in 1981… well maybe more so pushed my way into this place. I will be honest, every year I battle with the joy of another birthday versus the fear of getting older. Joy always wins by a landslide of course and I spend time traveling or partying with friends. Though in the middle of all of this I am always sure to stop and document my milestone with birthday portraits. I love having photos to look back on my life in its different stages. This year I decided to dress both up and down, while praising the year I was born, as well as my sole journey as an only child.
First of all I must proclaim that I may be the most picky sunglasses buyer in the world. They must fit certain specifications, and only a select few will fit my face nicely. So when I saw the Status shades by Grey Ant I tried them on out of pure curiosity. Just how funny would they look on me? Well surprise, surprise! I actually looooved them on me.
Last week I had to take a quick trip back to Grenada (was just there for Xmas & New Year’s Holiday) to photograph my cousin’s wedding. Being that it was a short trip I tried to pack light including my airport outfit. Its tough going from a cold climate to a tropical island. Plus carrying a heavy coat during a long layover is no fun at all. So I decided that I would dress in layers. First off, I knew I wanted to head straight out for drinks with my friends that were picking me up from the airport. I actually surprised them so I knew it would be a little party! Usually I don’t care what I wear for a flight as long as I am comfy, but this look had to be cute and comfy!
My birthday is coming! I like to think of my birthday as my own personal new year! While I am not one for resolutions I do like to set goals by writing them down in the affirmative. For example; It is 2015 and I am traveling to Greece with my girls in August. But to back up my goal writing for the year I thought it was a good idea to have something I would see everyday. You know.. some eye candy! After all I am a very visual person! What photographer isn’t?
I am so excited to introduce this new blog to the world. I have so many interests that I could go on and on about that I thought it would be fun to create a home for them all. From that comes Nas Nas Nas… thats me! Queen of random, human, and happy energy.
So who is Nas? Just a girl born in Brooklyn, NY during pisces season to young parents who filled her with love, compassion, loyalty and creativity. Growing up I wanted to be everything from a pediatrician to an R&B singer to a clinical psychologist. I even have a few “demo tapes.” (Shhhhhh don’t tell) Life has brought me into a photography career which I adore as it brings together so many of my loves.
Now on to the good stuff! What on earth will this blog be about?
