Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris: From the Bedroom to the Boardroom … Tiny Rules
In the moments leading up to rolling out’s cover shoot with Tameka “Tiny” Harris, the talented singer, wife and businesswoman huddled in a corner with me to discuss our strategy for her photo shoot. We covered the best way for us to portray everything that she had going on in her life — from artist management to motherhood to a successful VH1 reality show.
That was the million-dollar question.
Do we stage an elaborate alter ego shoot, where we pit her softer side against her more dominant, aggressive inner being? That was one thought. But as the two of us congregated in a quiet corner of DR Photography studio to discuss strategy, an undeniable truth became evident: the only way to articulate the true essence of Harris was to strip down all the pretense and play it straight.
It was the perfect strategy, seeing as how she had chosen to live her life in unbridled authenticity. So we stripped away the glamour and arrived at the true Tameka ”Tiny” Harris — a woman who was buoyed by love and driven by her quest to be the best woman that she can be.
In the end, that was really the only strategy that made sense. And the results — as you will soon see and read — will speak for themselves.
