My knees become weak every time I see a perfectly angled hair cut, heaven forbid there’s some crazy color added… “I’m coming Elizabeth!” I’ve collected some edgy and angular cuts that are sure to make you drool. Be inspired! 😉
I love to see how creative the stylists are with razors, scissors, and color applications. Check out the flawlessly blended colors, razor sharp cuts, and creation of depth with layers! Which one is your favorite?

“Images are the intellectual property of the creator, but for that property to generate income, photographers have to know their production costs, the value of their work, and the value of the usage their client is licensing.”
Most photographers view photography as the art form it is. Those of us who aim to make a living on our art must know the business side of photography as well. This includes licensing our work to our clients for their usage. The 3 broad categories are:
Commercial – photography that is used to sell or promote a product, service, or idea
Editorial – photography used for educational or journalistic purposes
Retail – photography commissioned or purchased for personal use

So the SyFy channel is giving me a super dope birthday present… the return of Face Off on August 13th! I absolutely love this show! I love mystical creatures, aliens, monsters, fairy tales, all of it. I especially love when they have human characteristics, dramatic wardrobe, and/or dope prosthetic. Hence why this show is ridiculously inspiring! 😉
I love to see how creative the makeup artists are with molds and sculpting, designs and colors. Check out some of my Face Off favs, a few of my own works, and some more famous and notable creations. I live for both the elegant and beautiful as well as the angry and monstrous! Which one is your favorite? Continue reading »

I could not have found a better video on the subject, and I am also not surprised that it comes from one of my awesome photographer friends, Tracy Lynn Deis of TLD Photography in Chicago, IL! As a boutique photographer, I constantly have to explain to certain clients why I don’t give all of the images from our session on a disk, especially unretouched images. I believe in a beautiful quality of work and providing that quality for each and every client. To give away images without regard is classless in my opinion. I am not a photographer just to cover my bottom line; I believe in the artistry of my craft and upholding my standards. Watch the video below for a detailed understanding of EXACTLY how I feel on the subject <3
From perfectly round to abstract and angled, the shaped ‘fro is always a show stopper! I’ve pooled some edgy avant garde with cool classics and even threw in a few celebs sporting their afros with style. Be inspired! 😉
I love to see how creative the stylists are with razors and scissors just as much as I love a perfectly round short or long fro. Check out the shapes as well as the old school shots! So much creativity, history and culture, these were a joy to search for… I live for beauty with flare! Which one is your favorite?
