It’s good having friends. Even better when you have friends in high places. Mercedes Kirkland, a high school classmate has accomplished much through the years. Military, mother, mature, business owner, MAC make-up artist, and excellent person all around. Mercedes told me of her vision, and asked if I would be her photographer. I could care less who she wanted me to photograph, I would do it for her. It didn’t hurt that tattoo artist Dutchess Lattimore, of VH1’’s Black Ink was the model for the day. Launching her upcoming site for her brand, Mercedes did the makeup, designed and had her own shirts made and modeled by Dutchess. Full Post coming soon!!!
