Darryl Dwayne Shoots The Beautiful ENews Correspondent Alicia Quarles
It's been a busy year and one of the highlights of this past year was being deemed the honor to photograph one of the most enchanting and personable media darlings Alicia Quarles. Incase you are unaware Alicia Quarles is one of the most lively and fashionable ENews correspondents.
During my shoot with Alicia I got to know her very well and outside of her beauty one of her more striking attributes is her humility. Her resume is beyond impressive and yet she doesn't dwell on any of her past achievements but rather opens herself up to being in the moment. And in that moment standing across from her as I snapped her photograph she was just Alicia nothing more nothing less. She was not just that glamorous entertainment news reporter with the charming personality and corky wit that we had all grown to love, but she was so much more.
Alicia was and is this multilayered beauty thats much more then skin deep. She was more then willing to talk about her humble beginnings and how everyday for her is a blessing because she is able to do what she loves. She even spoke to how this business can cause some to become jaded and that she avoids that by staying close to her family unit. Expressing that it's her family and her love for her loved ones that keeps her grounded and out of the line of fire when dealing with the business of Hollywood and all that comes with that.
Alicia's sincerity was moving and invoked a feeling of warmth and comfort. You felt as if she was one of your family members whom you had long been out of touch with and finally got the chance to reconnect with. This is probably why she is so good at what she does because of her natural ability to disarm you pulling you in unbeknown to yourself totally open and vulnerable. Yet in-turn you feel like she is just as open and vulnerable as you.
Alicia is by far one of the most brilliant and talented individuals that I've been blessed to photograph thus far. I know that only bigger and greater things are bound for this phenomenal media maven. If sky is the limit someone hasn't told her that, as she's just breaking stratosphere with plans to go even further.
