we are planning an event for the month of October and are seeking related art and various forms of entertainment, if you are interested in such and/or would like additional information, please email us at CottonQueens@gmail.com...
and, while it was my first experience in front of her camera, it was definitely memorable.
memorable because she's truly gifted at her craft, her passion. memorable because it marked the completion of book one. joy, meesh, gia and i posed and enjoyed every single aspect of 'our shoot.' yes, we were in front of the lenses for once :)
and when i tell you, more celebrations are in order, believe me.....
My pleasure to work with you and your talented staff of down-to-earth professionals. I look forward to the pictures. I also look forward to seeing you on billboards, magazine covers, and on the big screen. You are very talented and you exemplify what fashion was, where it is , and where it's going. You couldnt have picked a better team, all of your spirits were genuine! Thanks for allowing me to be apart of your movement!
When I went to the photoshoot, I didn't know anybody, but everybody was very friendly. I did makeup first and while I was getting my makeup done, I was able to watch Davita put the outfits together. Most people do not enjoy their jobs, it is just a paycheck...but Davita was different. She is passionate, artistic and loves what she does. I was a little envious of that, but was very happy that she is able to share what she does with others. Next I got dressed and went to hair. My outfit and hair was nothing that I would wear on a regular day, but it was great for a photoshoot! It was different, artsy and I was fabulous! Gia and Meesh were great and the other models were fabulous too...but not as fabulous as me :) The BushBroads photoshoot was an awesome experience and if you need me again, I am here for you. Smooches!
Participating in this journey with the creative minds of BushBroads was a great experience. At first, I was kind of nervous since I've never been in a photo shoot before but these ladies' personalities gave me no choice, but to "bring it". Despite the bitter cold..lol.. these ladies let me know that you're a BushBroad today and BushBroads are HOT. Warmed me up (snap snap..lol) Thank you ladies for making me feel sexy and appreciative of embracing this natural journey. I applaud you all..true genius! .. This is only the beginning for you all. Remember the sky is the limit. Keep it natural...
A little over a year ago, I caught my best friend staring at my head. He asked, "What are you going to do about your hair?" I had been attempting to grow it out, rather unsuccessfully, for almost a year after a series of unfortunate incidents with relaxers, permanent hair color and scissors. "I don't know," I replied. He suggested I stop relaxing it and go natural. "Besides," he said, "Do you even know what your natual hair LOOKS like?" I didn't. So I grew it out and to my pleasant surprise, I loved it! I hadn't seen my natural texture since I was about 12, which was when my mom slapped a Dark and Lovely in it one day after several foggy mornings kept destroying my carefully pressed hair. So when I heard about what the BushBroads were doing, I was almost foaming at the mouth to be a part of it. And what an awesome experience it was! Everyone was so easy to work with. Gia showed me a new way to curl my hair, Joy gave me a beautiful face and Davita's styling is magazine worthy. Marquita and Meesh took some fabulous shots. The whole experience made me feel glamorous and special. Keep up the awesome work ladies! :)
My BushBroad experience was AWESOME! Even though I knew some of the team through passing or meeting at different events, I felt like a model in their presence. From the makeup to the fashion to the hair, it wasn't hard for me to get into character. All the ladies are BEAUTIFUL !! Gia is a talented hair stylist & gave me a few natural hair tips that I have used since the shoot. Johnatha did a great job on my makeup & I felt like baby doll!
Davita did a great job on creating the looks & it put me in a very playful & happy mood. Meesh, I can't wait to see your work & I love your hair:)
Much love to the ladies & I would love to do another one.....SOON
Just thought I would take a minute to document one of my friend's hair...she hasn't had a relaxer in 5 months and 2 weeks (in her own words, lol) but isn't quite ready to cut off the relaxed hair. So I have been blowing her hair out with a round brush. We shampoo'd and conditioned her hair and put a leave in, in it as well. I also use silicone for shine and protecting the hair and to add shine. I never use oil or grease in her hair....
So you been thinking about going natural? Its possible!!! Even if you're not quite ready...you have time and ways to do your hair until you make a confident decision. Just thought I'd share...I know there's a bunch of you chicks out there just debating on it everyday! Come on over to the bushes ladies! You can still look like you use creamy crack whenever you want! ;) lol Just don't settle for being a creamy crackhead! lmao!!! Smooches! ;-*
I must say that this last shoot was soooo FAB. All of the women had a shine that was fun upbeat and ready to take some ahhhsome shots. I have to thank all of them. There hair was pretty even before I started. It made my job easy. Being a mother I must thank Ali for sitting and not getting in the way, forgetting he was there, only to find his art work he made. My son is dope. We even had pop ups. Two great guys blessed the set with there male energy, making this year unforgettable. BUSHBROADS 2011, jump on or stand still.urbanfolk4u.blogspot.com
