post title background Oya’s photo shoot for the Spirit of Oya CD


Check me and my team out behind the scenes on the Spirit of Oya CD photo shoot. This was  a very special day for me because this photo shoot was for my childhood dream. To be taking pictures for my CD was a bit surreal but it felt so good.

Over the years I have produced several shoots so it was wonderful to put a team together that I felt could take control and allow me to just be the artist. I wanted something very specific and in alignment to who I am and what the project represented musically. I spent time talking and meeting with my team in detail so that we could capture the kind of images that would be appropriate for the project. I spent all this time in pre-production so when it came to the day of the photo shoot I could be stress free with flowing free energy.

I was able to be free because I knew that I was in good hands with my super duper styling squad Tai Young, Lilit, Mike Sam and my photographer Carlos Armando. These artistic creators came together to create the most beautiful images that I could ask for.

They say pictures are worth a thousand words and each picture that was selected for the CD has a purpose. This debut album Spirit of Oya is the musical depiction of my souls delicious journey, filled with life, love, inspiration and light. From the front and back cover and everything inside the images tell a story and I look forward to sharing it with you on September 23, 2012.

Until then I wish you lots of light ahead in manifesting your dreams.
