What I Wore: Photoshoot.

by Jamila Pierre

Typically when I conduct photo shoots, I'm in the most comfy garb I can muster up.  It's always some type of stretch pant and T-Shirt combo or one of these awesome dresses i acquired long ago from New York & Co.

They were on sale for like $10 and came in a slew of colors and for a person like me, that's just plain dangerous.

Needless to say, I purchased every color they had out on the floor, and since then these dresses have made thousands of appearances throughout the years since. 

They are comfy, easy, stylish, and can easily be dressed up or down. 

I decided to wear the black one because I was going to some designer showrooms and didn't want to look like a complete unkempt pile of trash, and with the black one I could pair nicer jewels with... it also hid the sweat on my back due to the nastily humid weather we were having.  

There is nothing cute about sweating, looking like you're sweating, or having a sweaty back print...NO! 

You must then be asking me why in the H E double hockey sticks am I wearing an anorak...consider the light weight jacket my utility belt because of all the pockets...it was a must. 

Overall the day was a success and I was taken to see some pretty fantabulous pieces, I was even tempted to just suck it up and get a pair of Bionada Castana's sky high heels, because they were so freakin' stunning I couldn't take it. 

The stylist Berthold Jean- Charles (pictured below) was a trip and the session was interesting and full of life. Look forward to more collaborations with this amazing stylist.

Jamila The Photographer!

by Jamila Pierre

I  am a very passionate, fiery, and creative person, who wants nothing more than for people to really appreciate what it is I offer. I want to be able to express myself freely and creatively through the use of as many mediums as possible, thus the blog. I've also come to realize that being that kind of person come with a heap of problems because I often don't feel like I have enough time on this planet to do it all, and that tends to frustrate me. I'm a writer and a photographer it seems by nature, but  I want so much more, I want to also be a stylist, designer, makeup artist, editor, and I want to own my own magazine. Maybe I'll have many lives after this and one by one I can conquer it all, but for now I'll stick to what speaks to me most. Below are some of my works that have been published and/or are featured on my photography website www.Truthboxphotography.com. I would truly appreciate you taking the time out to visit my site and even possibly leaving your feedback here on this blog post.
