nicholas : senior 2k12 : sneak peek : oklahoma city area senior photographer

nicholas was SO easy to shoot! usually it actually takes a little more to pull things out of guys when you have them in front of the camera but he was a natural. i am lovin' the black and white images of him. i had to throw at least one color in there since it was pretty amazing too but my heart is really drawn to the black and whites!

naturally u : CONTEST TIME : oklahoma city area photographer

 since i've started shooting the models for the event, you've seen little sneak peeks of them. most of the models spent a little time on video talking about their natural hair journey, their routine and just what being natural means to them. now its your turn :

yep. its time to turn the camera on YOU! submit a video, 2 minutes or less, and tell us what being natural means to YOU!

you dont have to have natural hair to enter this contest because we all know that being natural is about way more than just your hair! dont get me breaking in to "i am not my hair" by india arie, lol.  this contest is local but open to everyone  - curly, kinky, nappy, fro, straight, guys, girls, red, yellow, black or white!!

so, use ur cell phone, your camera, your web cam - whatever you have readily available to you and let us hear your thoughts about being natural.
