Last year, I was a little upset that people didn’t believe that I was so creative or that I’ve been directing longer than I’ve been producing. Then I had to look at myself and say “well you don’t post any of your creative work so how would they know?” Since then, I challenged myself to show my creatively in every post, every text, every thought because that’s what I naturally do with my family. This nappy hair series is a part of the marketing for my first short documentary, Reclaiming Nappy. I figured it’s important for people get that same message in different forms. I used to braid hair in high school and college and would sometimes braid the person’s name into their hair. This photo series made me super happy and happiness is ALWAYS my number 1 priority.
