As a Black Branding Portrait Photographer, you meet folks that come through your life for a reason, season or a lifetime.  Rarely do you think about a retirement milestone memory early on. A lot of folks I met in college at South Carolina State University was for a reason.  Some of those reasons are wild […]

Columbia SC | Best Retirement Party Ever at Columbia Museum of Art

Army Retirees at a retirement party in Columbia South Carolina with Branding Portrait Photographer MoSeawell

At a young age, we are told to do our “lesson”, graduate and get a good job. With that job, rarely do we think we will be an employee for over 30 years. Yes, reaching 50 years of service is common. But to reach 50 years on the job when you were “recruited” for the […]

Employee of the Century at Brookland Baptist Church

To attend an HBCU (Historical Black College and University) is a learning experience. The pride and confidence most students receive is insurmountable! Graduates leave their institution of higher learning with nuggets often not received at other schools. They essentially enter into the world and make strides of excellence.

Giving Back for the 32nd Harambee

48 hours is a long time.  48 hours is so long that A&E created a show called The First 48. Though that show is centered around crime and murder, Amaya’s first 48 hours of her prom weekend was quite eventful and lead to no one being placed in a body bag. On Saturday, Amaya and […]

Long Weekend for The Baby

I’ll Take a Slice of the SkeeWee

When you hear the name of John, it is easy to equate it to the GOSPEL OF JOHN.  When you hear the word Gospel spoken, it is common to think of music.  But where does one’s mind go when they hear the words, “John singing gospel in the Carolinas?”  Puzzling.  Your mind could go to […]

The Gospel of John gone Wild

Life is an interesting gift from God.  The gift sometimes is sprinkled with rays of sunshine that allows one to feel that nothing could be sweeter.  Often, the gift is tossed with salt and pepper, where one has bright and dark days.  And there are times when life is like looking in a mirror and […]

Never Shall We Forget

Strong and determined: this girl stood out to me.  Big smile and commanded attention by her actions: this girl stood out to me.  The oldest daughter of parent educators that openedly loves the Lord: this girl stood out to me.

And The Beat Goes On

Friendships can be fun. Friendships can be memorable. Friendships are taken to new heights when emotions are involved & you are asked to do grown folk stuff. After graduating from South Carolina State University, one of my dearest friends, Tiffany, was blessed with a child that she named Tyler. During the pregnancy, she asked me […]

Well Done, My Son

There comes a time in every young man’s life where he must make a choice in high school.  He must choose if he wants a school ring or finish the year with no bling.  He must choose if he wants to continute his eduation at an institution of higher learning or purse other career opportunities. […]
