Tracy Reese - @hopeforflowersbytracyreese - Her new sustainable line photographed in her hometown of #Detroit. “There’s a flower in each of us that needs to be cultivated.” This one statement resonated with me as we prepped for her shoot and I spoke to Tracy about her sustainability efforts, switching gears and rebranding.

Just a thought... I’m constantly talking about this and trying to think of ways to get the same point across.... I receive question after question about how to do what I’m doing and sadly I often don’t have an exact answer because I did not take a straight road. I mean who does? There’s no one way #itscomplicated But I will say that developing and nurturing a skill.... enough so you’ll be “seen”, respected and hired ($$$) takes YEARS of incubation. Sure there are those that seemingly bypass some of this, but mostly that’s not real and they’ll quickly be on to the “next thing”. You want to always do the WORK of educating yourself, having a unique point of view and listening to your higher power. Gain experience so you have a point of reference... All of this and more strengthens your confidence and in turn you will be SEEN... eventually (sigh).

For the MAY issue of @Essence, a lot of the commissioned shoots are by black women creatives & teams. Admittedly this should be easier to make happen. I mean you had to witness the sheer horror that occurred when I rcv’d a text looking for black women set designers!!! Where y’all at?🤔 Swipe left to see our team.

I’ve always felt “different “ from a young age. Can’t fully explain it. And some days I don’t know whether I’m coming or going, but somehow I show up and I’m always protected. 🙏🏾 #faith #chosen

📷 @grisellemua caught me “looking into my future... “ last week when shooting for @mizani. This is sort of an inside joke because I always ask my subjects to look into their ‘bright’ futures when shooting as a way to switch up their mindsets for my film capture. But seriously these last few months (couple of years really) have been a wild journey! We’re all on one, but I’m definitely in a new season where I’m being stretched in more ways than I ever imagined including having to making decisions that aren’t always the easiest. On the bright side, projects, ideas and concepts that I’ve dreamt of are coming to fruition. In just the 1st quarter I’ve been to Mexico courtesy of @myleik (I suggested a trip to Miami to switch it up and of course she said nahhhh we are doing something else), I headed to New Orleans twice within weeks of each other and to #grenada Shout out to @fenoel @discovergrenada and @yvettenoelschure ! I also had an awesome (but jet lagged ) experience meeting the most amazing editors at the coveted New York Times Portfolio Review. There’s even more and a sister is tired but as I always say, I’m doing the lords work so I’m covered. Thank you to everyone that supports me in any way - riding / flying ✈️ along, reposting, sending encouragement ... BTW, my DM’s are lit with mostly congratulations on my @IssaRae @Essence shoot and I may not be able to respond to everyone , but I see you 🙏🏾. #gratitude #itayshaphoto #godismyagent

Here is the people’s choice! #topnine You have great taste as everything pictured here is the result of work I manifested and/ or created myself. Each shoot was deeper than just showing up for the job. I was a mix of collaborator, creative director, casting, production , curator, retoucher, road dog ... you name it. There were sleepless nights, weeks of planning etc. So during this time of mass reflection, I’m focusing on my evolution as an artist, creative thinker and consultant. The road is not perfect, and I’m constantly in awe of how cruel life can be, but with God’s grace and a little compassion, we and YOU can create anything you wish!... Happy New Year!
