Janise and I collaborated for her final photo project at Temple University. Her goal was to actually become the characters and then capture their personality in each photo. We spent hours picking outfits, finding locations and developing each characters unique traits. The result was a hit at the Tyler art gallery.

This is the start of the second part of my series; documentary portraits of interracial couples. I have a few angles I want to go with this, I’m excited to see what direction it takes. Jamae and JD had love spilling out of them. They were so into each other if I wasn’t talking, I think they might have forgot I was there. They even recently canceled their cable because they realized they entertained themselves more than the TV entertained them!
As many close to me know, skin color has always been a sensitive topic. Coming to Temple I have been exposed to every race and ethnicity under the sun. I love discussing racial issues and learning about others backgrounds and culture. I also love how beautiful women of every color can be. Over the years I have manage to surround myself with friends of every skin tone. Each beautiful, smart and unique. This series is about the power of women and the acceptance between people regardless of how they look. I had so much fun doing this shoot with the body paint. I couldn’t have done this without the support from these women! I’m going to continue on this topic for the remainder of the semester. I also plan on breaking out to portraits of interracial couples so stay tuned!!
