Whether it’s the beginning of the concert where everything is just getting started, or the end where she’s just finished spinning, dancing, sweating and singing….she is always smiling and noticeably loves sharing that experience with her friends and fans.

I’ve worked with a few artists, not a ton, but definitely a few. That is a rare phenomenon. She’s a rare brilliant artist who genuinely enjoys connecting with amazing people. If you ever get the chance, catch her live! My description barely scratches the surface 😊

Ok, one more photograph of this guy. Again, getting a chance to photograph him was a dope experience! Women of all ages, couples, and everyone was just singing along….and screaming! I don’t know how him and @ericbenet, and those other handsome cats that can also sing like crazy do it! Gifted brothers! #flashbackfriday

Being passionate about one’s art is not something that can be faked. Artists need to be creative and expressive as much as they need food and water to live. Even when the music stops, their heart and ideas continue to dance undeterred. - image of @janellemonae by Derrel R. Todd | @dtodd 📷 #photographerforcreativepeople

Episode #6:
ENGAGE-ing Breakfast Conversation

Heather: (Thank you God for the meal you’ve placed before us. And thank you for this incredible man that you have placed in my life.)
Chad: (My God, my God, my God. thank you. I could not be happier than right now. I can’t wait to marry this woman who is as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside. Thanks for the grub too!)

To the movie
To the park
I’ll have you home
Before it’s dark
So let me know,
Can I take you out tonight? - #LutherVandross

I am not a #landscapephotographer. I am not a #landscape #photographer. I am not a landscape photographer…….daggone #snow! It turns us all into #landscapephotographers! We’re powerless to resist it’s #addictive #attraction! It’s #seductive #song #cries out to us like #sirens in #theiliad (#iliad) or was it #theodyssey (#odyssey) [forgive me Ms. Pegram, my #ancient and #medieval #history #teacher]. Its wondrous beauty lures our inner #AnselAdams and #Bresson to the surface. #Smartphones, #SLRs, #hybrid #cameras, #mediumformat, #largeformat, #hobbyists and #professionals get caught in her beautiful web. We’re enveloped in her cold pristine blanket, and we’ll grab anything to document her every #appearance! I repeat, I am NOT a landscape photographer 😏. Image by Derrel R.
