About two months ago I got the call from 238 Beats regarding photographing Tashera Simmons for her Women of Strength Foundation Red Carpet Fundraiser. In light of all the images of Tashera on the internet with DMX, I wanted to find out who the real Tashera was.
Our phone conversation went very well. In that fifteen to twenty minute time span we were able to connect, joke around, and collaborate on the style, clothing and goal of the photo shoot.
By the time I arrived at her home and officially met her for the first time, we were already connected. This made the photo shoot so much easier.
The photo below truly portrays Tashera as a strong overcomer, who loves life and loves to have fun.
