our mum took this shot

it is the cumulative expression of twenty-two years of sisterhood


We are attractive.

Back when I used to get along with my mother lol. Relax people, I’m kidding.

Myself and QiaoQiao shoot.

Back to hand-washing clothes lol.

Daddy and I

Wearing my mother’s favorite dress from her younger days. Aba, Nigeria. 2012.

It wasn’t  a super extraordinary day, it was nice and simple. I spent part of it with my father and a great friend. We couldn’t get fancy candles, but the regular ones worked just fine lol. It is the first birthday I’ve had in years where I didn’t end up sad and crying at some point. I’m laughing in this picture.

Birthday aside: My mosquito protection gear + a little dance to ward them off.

Getting my hair done.

I had to take their picture at AMFW. I think they are gorgeous.

Good-morning folks! It feels like a good day today! SO give a bigggggg smile to people today, giggle a few times to yourself, and buy yourself a ridiculously yummy treat to nibble on before the day ends! *prances away tossing flowers in air*

I love working with Kata. Skin color is never a barrier for her make-up skills.  A big deal when you live in New Mexico (3% black population lol). Here for other pictures.

My stages of laugher: Needless to say, this was a fun shoot.


Will be getting my yarn braids back real soon! The scar on my leg is slowly blending in at last!
