There are not many things as dear to me as folks that I have passionately encountered over the years. Not just the guy I met at the barbershop or the female who I held the door for. It’s the folks that have etched a spot in my mind & heart and forced me to remember small nuggets about them. As a product of Orangeburg County School District 5, I started my public school education at Nix Elementary School. Although I can’t remember everyone that I met at Nix, there are plenty of classmates I will never forget. I attended Nix for kindergarten thru second grade and transferred to Marshall Elementary School for third and fourth grade. When I reached high school at Orangeburg-Wilkinson High, I was reunited with a huge number of folks from Nix. One of those individuals was Towannia Bonaparte. Towannia and I have a unique bond, where we graduated from high school the same year, as our mothers graduated together in 1967. A lot of our upbringings and values are similar in nature. A big common ground we share is entrepreneurship. She contacted me last year to capture images for her first book, The Road Map to Financial Freedom. We braved the quick rain and pulled off some beautiful images.
She contacted me a few weeks ago and we set our schedules to produce images for her next book. You can pre-order her book on her website, Six Seeds Financial. We put our heads together and off we went. Here is an intro image of Towannia trying to determine if I am crazy or crazycrazy.
The session got started by pulling in usage of The Richland County Library. The nice staff allowed us to utilize their space. I am probably one of only a few folks that still indulges in the library, but I love spending time around all of the knowledge. Here is our opening shots with the books playing co-star
After the attire change, it was time to roll up our sleeves to shake up the home of the Dewey Decimal System. Here is a ‘behind the scene’ image of me giving directions to the Financial Guru
And off we went …
Whew! That was work. Lol. Just kidding. Towannia was a joy to work with again. There is beauty in working with repeat customers. I was a fan of the finished work from that day. From the look on her face, she looks pleased too.
Please visit Towannia’s website for the presale of her book on May 1, 2018.
Last week, I took it to the streets. I did the congregational thing. I ran the 41st Annual Cooper River Bridge Run 10K. Before you ask, YES I DID WIN THE RACE! It just so happen that 1,627 folks ran faster than me, but who’s counting?!? Here is a picture of my Finisher MedalYa likes??? Everyothat finished received one; The runners and the stunners … The walkers and the talkers … The complainers and the sustainers. They all got some bling. Great motivation for all to #getoverit
