Joanie’s Sweet Sixteen

I think I had a way too much fun being my little cousin’s photographer for the weekend. Everyone, I would love you all to meet the silly and sweet cousin, Joanie Jeanniton. Last minute, I was asked to be the photographer of Joanie’s sweet sixteen. As a photographer, I’m not a fan of doing events like parties and weddings but, I would do anything for my family.

The day before her party we had planned to have a small photoshoot at the park but, things didn’t go the way we planned. The sun started to set and we had no professional studio to go to. I thought to myself alright, I could use my white backdrop and umbrella lights to do the photo shoot in my bedroom; thank God for my creative mother who gave me the idea to do use a black backdrop instead.

Doesn’t she look like a beauty pageant queen? These photos came out way better than I expected. I love doing portrait photography, I love being able to interact with people on a different level; it’s one thing to get to know someone on a personal level but, try getting to know them behind a camera. Now let’s get the party started. The theme of the party was glow in the dark.


Shout out to my mother who design the cake and decorated the party as well. Being in a room full of high schoolers was surprisingly fun. These teenagers were very mature for their age. Good job Joanie for picking a great group of friends. They were very energetic, funny and sure know how to party. 

To Joanie, I enjoy being part of your special day  and thank you for letting me photograph these priceless moments for you. I love you and love the woman of God you’ve become. You’re one of the most down to earth cousin and I am so excited to see where your life will be 10 years from now. Stay Golden♥.

Hello my lovely readers, I guess I should do a quick bio about me. Well, for one I am not your average woman I make living Holy look fun. Yes! I am a believer but, I AM NOT PERFECT nor do I pretend to be. I love my city Kissimmee, Florida was raised here all my life I rep it like I do with my nationality, Haitian-American. Don't like long walks on the beach because Florida is too hot and the birds here are mean, but, I enjoy watching the sunrise on my rooftop. My two favorite things that God created are the Moon and Stars, notice I didn't say humans? I am totally kidding, my love for people is deeper than my dimples. I have many passions one of them is doing missionary work, I enjoy the company of people from different cultures; I also admire photographing nature places I've traveled too and priceless moments. On July 28, 1992 was the best day that ever happens to my mother that is why she named me after her, Myriam Norgaisse. Thanks mother now I have to live the rest of my life getting our mail mixed up. Well, that was somewhat of a short bio. Enjoy my blog & more. Also, don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel at Keep Up With The Golden Life STAY GOLDEN!!!
