Behind The Scenes: Making It Happen Together!
Hello beautiful ones! I pray that you are doing exceedingly well!
The last 90 days have been a whirlwind of activity for me. There were so many days where I thought I was going to lose my mind because I had so much to do to launch the blog. I’m a bit of a perfectionist to say the least, especially when it comes to business. And, if my name is going to be on something it has to be of quality, on point, and be about its business. So, I put a lot of pressure on myself to get things done and Chic.Classy.Spicy. was no different. Sisterfriend, there were days I called my boyfriend in tears because I was a tad overwhelmed or I noticed my engagement on Instagram was plummeting (IG has been on some stuff lately).
Also, as some of you know, I own an insurance agency and in order for me to eat, something that I love to do, I have to make sure I get the work done for it no matter what else needs to happen. Therefore, like most of you, I’m working in and on my business while hustling to make sure Chic.Classy.Spicy. is topnotch!!!
Trust me, this blogging & social media thang ain’t no joke! I never knew how much work it takes, but we’ll talk about it in a future post so I can keep it all the way 100 with y’all about my journey thus far. Any who, I could not have gotten this far if it had not been for the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of collaborating with thus far:
- My awesome photographer, Jamaal McKenzie of Visuals by JM, is a gem, a genius, & oh so talented! I’m simply amazed at how he captures the most beautiful, natural, authentic shots of me. I’m so glad he’s on my team and I’m so happy that he took the plunge to follow his heart full-time! Check him out for portraits, commercial shoots, engagements, graduations, and more!

- It ain’t easy finding the perfect shoot location, changing clothes in the car, or keeping the clothes wrinkle-free. The staff at these locations made my photo shoots less stressful, more productive, and way more fun! Take a moment to visit them and tell them I referred you!

- My social media guru, Keisha Ifill of B Marketing Consulting, makes me look so good, keeps me sane & is a wonderful friend. I have no idea what I’d do without her and I don’t want to find out. She’s truly #fearlessauthenticunapologetic and a total #bossbabe with the biggest heart. Don’t hesitate to contact her to get your marketing on the right foot! Make sure you tell her I referred you ?
