Lady Tre’s Year Wrap Up!

Hello New World,

10453376_10203973787575504_1122884582315844469_nWell……………Good bye 2014 and Hello 2015!


For me, 2014 was an amazing year!

If there is one piece of advice I can give to you, it would be to follow your dreams! Regardless to whatever the odds may be or whomever thinks whatever, do it! This year, I traveled, made new connects, I’ve gotten more “in depth” in my chosen path, I made Manhattan my second home, and over all, I learned more about myself than I did before. In 2015, I need to make is much more amazing! I want to do way more in photography, in terms of fashion, and become more business savy, within the field.

January, other than the birth of me, was a proclamation month, for me. That month, brought me more into the studio. I believe I wrapped up my lighting classes, which gave me more confidence to be in the studio. It also introduced me to the goal of becoming a published photographer. That was a goal I was able to accomplish, twice!

20140326-101712.jpgFebruary,opened me up to what New York has in store for me! It showed me a world beyond the political rhetoric of DC. Spring was very interesting. It introduced me to more events. I did the “Get Radical” Women’s Conference and my first Bobbi Boss Hair Show, thanks to Ms. Alee of Dynamic PR. The summer lends itself more towards creativity. I did more themed shoots, such as “Candy Coated” and “Flashdance”. Also, in August, was the premiere issue of “Dame”, and the very first time I was published in a publication. It is still available through JooMag! I still remember when Sisqo sang in my phone! 20140702-182807-66487231.jpgThe fall, I was blessed enough to go backto NYC, twice. Once to be a participant in the Race for the Cure, NYC, and then to obtained a press pass for latin-fashion-week-galeria-expo-and-showroom-2012_239x200Latin Fashion Week. What a thrilling experiencefor me! I also had the opportunity to take a stylist course, through MShopNYC and did the Hair Games, which came to DC. Winter is wrapping up, for me, on a blessed note. I was able to get some rest, and life is settling down. Rest, seems to be something, now a days, I don’t get enough of and I am finally getting some of that! So, once again, not to sound like a broken record, but if you didn’t do it, in 2014, make it work in 2015.

See Ya in the New Year!

It’s the Premiere! Bottom Of Bottom’s Launch Party

Hello New World,

I am back from the Big Apple!

What a time! I could scream it from the roof tops about how I love being in NYC. It is always the best!

Dame Fashion/Vagabond Sophisticent magazine, both, are the creation of Editor In Chief Whitney Bell. It will display fashion from around this country,  from variety of the latest upcoming photographers. Side advertisement, I’m in that hot few! The premiere issue will be available on iTunes on August 17, 2014, and the print will be available for purchase, through Dame’s site, on August 24, 2014. So definitely check it out for the content and ME! HELLO?!

So how was the launch?

Awesome! I will say that I was behind, though. It took me a minute longer to get ready. None the less, though, it was awesome. We got a table, next to the stage. I don’t know about anyone else, but I had fun! Ate a nice meal and partied beside Dru Hill. Anyone that really knows me, knows that I am a huge Sisqo fan! I loved everything he had on, especially his Nike’s! I loved it!

One more side note-Thank you soooooo much to Whitney Bell and her crew for putting the whole party together. Once, again, one of the most awesome moments in my life, having Sisqo singing in my mere direction! Whew! Thank you, ma’am!

Anyway, here is the video! The rest of the videos are located on my FB page.



11 More Days!


10303442_10204234143124230_8702910789346536339_nHey New World,

11 more days until the Bottom of Bottoms Launch Party!

I am ultra excited, because I never get a real chance to party in NYC. Yeah, I’m up every month, but never really get a chance to party. I’m always visiting friends, and trying to handle some business. Needless to say, this time, I think will be well deserved!

So, a quick rundown.

The launch party will at SOB’s in Lower Manhattan. It will be so ridiculous! That was meant in an awesome way!

If you go to Eventbrite, there may be tickets left! So if there are any left, come out and have fun with us!




An Interview with Dame

Hey New World,

How is it going?!

Well, after a hectic, but enjoyable few months, I am finally getting some rest!


So, I held this set of news in, for a while, but I am finally coming forth with the info. Over the fourth of July weekend, I was interviewed by one of the journalist for Dame Fashion Magazine. I was very excited, happy, and nervous, all at the same time! The journalist, CJ, asked me a few questions, which were relatively easy and straight forward. It was a Skype interview. The interview, I believe, was style as two people having a conversation. I get that, which was cool, because the point was that it shouldn’t feel like an interview. I was suspose to feel like it was two friends, cooling. I still knew it was an interview. I was sooo nervous that I had sweat everywhere. I asked, after the interview, “How did I do?”. I did not let my personality really shine out, like I really wanted. That is fine! It was my first of possibly many interviews, to come. So, I will try to post the interview, when it is released, but until then, you have to buy the mag!



Guess What Happened To Me?!

_DSC2055Hello New World,

Last week I had another hectic week. I had class, once again. So I have images from this week’s class that I have not even touched, along with my shoot images, that I have been very focused on. So with that being said, I won’t keep you readers, all day with my crap. I will just announce the news.

So, you know my goal, as a photographer, has been to be published. Well, I need to change this goal. For years, I have submitted my work to different publications, feeling low because I felt like
I was ever good enough to be published. In a sense, this was good for me because this feeling made me work harder at accomplishing my goal. So, with the last shoot that I had wrapped up, in prayer, I sent it to the editor of Dame Fashion Magazine. Low and behold, I AM FINALLY BEING PUBLISHED! This has been a dream of mine, for a long time now, and this is proof, to me, that if you stay focused on your dreams, then it will soon become a reality. So since this has happened, the new goal is getting revamped. The next goal is for me to be published in Glamour magazine. Whatever disappoints that should come my way, may I take them only as learning lessons.


Upcoming Schedule

Hello New W20140606-142235-51755587.jpgorld,
I won’t lie. These past couple of weeks have been extremely busy, for me. I am back in my class and I have an upcoming shoot. So, please forgive me for being spotty with my posting.

So this shoot, that happens on this Sunday, I went another route from my usual 20140606-142524-51924075.jpg
way of planning shoots. This time, I’m in studio and I am planning lighting. This will be portraits. The theme is candy coated, and……………..that is all I can give you. I think that once I shoot these images, you will LOVE THESE!
