Effua McGowan Photoshoot for the launch of her Leadership Book

Effua McGowan is a towering woman with many accolades in her long-standing corporate career, but she’s most passionate about women’s leadership. Mrs. McGowan is the founder of Amazing You, LLC. Her organization is dedicated to the development of global human capital.

 I had the opportunity to work with Mrs. McGowan on the branding campaign for her recent book, “The ABC’s of Leadership.” I listened to her vision for the photoshoot; we selected the venue, and here are the results.   

Vesper Wine owners starring in a Bond-Like Photoshoot in Houston Riveroaks District.

I had a great time photographing Aisha Savage-Shirley and her husband, James Oliver Shirley.

 Aisha and James are a dynamic husband and wife team, and the owners of Vesper Wine. Vesper Wine is located here in Houston, Texas.  

The couple was celebrating their second wedding anniversary. We schedule the photoshoot right before their trip to Wine Country, where they planned on relaxing in the hot tub and drinking Bass Note Peach Tarragon Sangria.  

Bas Note Sangria tasting note - Ripe peaches, lemons, and a hint of tarragon married with crisp California white wine provide this sangria with an easy-drinking profile and a little zip.

We selected Riveroaks District, which is an excellent location for the photoshoot in Houston, Texas. Many sophisticated travelers from all around the world visit River Oaks District Houston to experience this unique outdoor shopping and dining district. Showcasing a curated collection of more than 60 fashionable, retail shops, restaurants, and cafes set amidst beautifully landscaped streets, River Oaks District Houston is one of my favorite locations for photoshoots in Houstons. Aisha and James showed up dressed like millionaires.
