18 Aug Parris Blue Photography with Tina Tang
Do you know the people in your community? Do you know who to turn to when you’re happy, sad, hungry, sore, or broken? Or do you rely on your phone, computer, or star ratings from strangers to guide your life? What if you can’t find the best people because they’re not found online? Where do you turn? Who do you know?
In this episode, we sit with Tina Tang — of Parris Blue Photography in Arlington — and discuss her training in photography, what drives her vision, and empowering women.
One of Tina’s missions is to help women accept and embrace themselves; to this end, she works with survivors of domestic violence. She also focuses on young girls; promoting positive body image. She wants girls — and women — to know that they are born with everything they need to be enough. They only need to work on being the best version of themselves.
