{Photo-Shoot!!!} Ava Bookert | Columbia, SC

It was a pleasure shooting the energetic  Little Ms. Ava last year, and this year was just as good. Full of energy, two outfits and an autumn/Halloween decorated Sandhill’s Farmer’s Market we went out for some fall fun. Ava brought herself, mom and aunt and I simply was led by Ava to where she wanted to be photographed. A few pine cones, a scary man named “Fred”, wagon, old shed  and a dirt road served as our backgrounds. Thank you Danese for being an awesome mom and thank you  Ava for a great photo-shoot. Looking forward to next year. Take a look…

Halloween Party | Latino Groove | Charleston, SC

It’s Halloween!!! This was my third Halloween party this season, and it was a blast! I was super excited as all three Halloween parties came about because of a simple business decision. Thank you Shandelle and Dominikii for the suggestion. DJ Luigi responded to a Facebook message while I was covering another Halloween party. A phone call later all the details were set and preparations were made fro Charleston. This party yielded one of the best Halloween parties I’ve been to. Saturated with pretty women, costumed men, Salsa dancing, Spanish talking and plenty of energy, everyone was eager to take photos. Held at the Southend Brewery and Smokehouse off East Bay Street in Charleston, the venue was excellent, atmosphere great and people exciting. I look forward to coming back next year and plenty of other events for the Latino Groove Charleston community. Take a look…
