Curvy Idol: Renee Edwards-Ambrose

Renee Edwards Ambrose is one of the most inspiring persons that I've ever come across. She's a go getter and she lets nothing get between her and her goals. She's a professional Drag Racer and has competed and broke records at meets across the Caribbean, She's runs her own Drag Racing Team; Lady Horsepower Farm, and she's even an aircraft mechanic for LIAT (the Caribbean's Main Regional Airline). But, despite all these things that might colour her a tomboy, She's an established Plus-Sized Model. She won the Caribbean Plus Competition in 2013, and become Antigua's first Miss. Carnival Plus International Winner in 2014, and recently she took home the title of Miss. Curvy Idol, an international modelling competition.

I've had the pleasure of working with her so many times as I've photographed her for her portfolio as well as personal pursuits. She's a beautiful person, both inside and out. So when She won Miss Curvy Idol, and my photographs of her were plastered all over the internet, I felt a sense of pride. I'm forever grateful to her for believing in my talent and using my photographs to promote her brand. Congratulations Renee :)

Makai Antigua

Living on an island has its many perks. Beaches, great weather, and even better selections for swim-wear. I've been following Makai Antigua on instagram for a little over a year now, and their wander-filled, beach loving feed is perfect for promoting their brand. Located at #46 Heritage Quay, St. Johns, Antigua, the store offers a lot more than just 'cheeky bikinis' and cover-ups... it truly is a haven and sanctuary for all those who love the beach. Makai is actually Hawaiian meaning "towards the ocean", and i truly believe in the philosophy behind that name. Being an island girl, i am constantly drifting 'towards the ocean' and have a deep rooted love of the sea.

The store sells a wide and unique variety of swim-wear and is a must visit for both tourists and locals alike. You can always guarantee that you'll find a lovely swimsuit that fits your style and makes you look and feel great. They sell quality swim-wear, so you know that you are getting your money's worth when you make a purchase. You can even mix and match tops and bottoms to fit your quirky style. Also, being beach oriented, the store's photos not only focus on the product but the island as well making them a real market engine for Antiguan tourism, as well as showing off the gorgeous beaches and their travels.

Check out Makai Antigua, a boutique featuring swim-wear, cover-ups, jewelry and more for those who belong near the ocean. #46 Heritage Quay, St. Johns, Antigua (268)562-8392
