This is where my personal projects are born, as well as behind the scenes perspectives of the photo shoots I've done.

Krewe of Oshun

Oshun, also spelled Osun, an orisha (deity) of the Yoruba people of southwestern Nigeria. Oshun is commonly called the river orisha, or goddess, in the Yoruba religion and is typically associated with water, purity, fertility, love, and sensuality. She is considered one of the most powerful of all orishas, and, like other gods, she possesses human attributes such as vanity, jealousy, and spite.

It was a wet night in New Orleans yesterday, which is fitting considering that the Krewe of Oshun is represented by the Yoruba goddess usually associated with water. Rain to an adult may seem like an inconvenience but to a kid, it's play time.

Lesson learned: Be a kid.
