I love my Mom so much. She always says to me, “You’ll always be my heart. I hope you know that.” I do. And I always have. She’s always been there for me. She’s always supported my creativity.  She’s always believed in me. I wouldn’t even be a photographer right now if not for her letting me buy my first camera on her Best Buy card - EVEN THOUGH at the time I was broke and extremely depressed and virtually unemployed. She still believed in me enough to give me a chance to turn my life around. And I did. My Mom is the most selfless person I know, who raised me on her own with the help of my Granny and my Great Grandmother. Every day I think about the legacy that I’m living because of THEM. Happy Mother’s Day (even though I’m a day late). Throwback Photo by me for @chromat #danascruggs

I’ve literally had 3 covers come out from major magazines in less than two weeks, when this time last year I had zero covers and no editorial work. Never give up. Keep making work and developing your skills and aesthetic. Then you’ll be ready when your moment comes. Outtake of @yarashahidi for @townandcountrymag. Photography & Creative Direction by Me.

@yarashahidi is so effervescent and has such beautiful energy - it was so fun shooting her for the cover of @townandcountrymag’s Philanthropy Issue! It’s also wonderful to see someone so young making such an impact and inspiring so many people - especially young Black people. Thank you @delroyslim for the assignment!

I’m so excited that my @eloquii #MODELTHAT campaign just dropped! It was such a wonderful experience working with these dynamic women AND a brand that’s creating stylish clothes for women that the fashion industry often chooses not to cater to. Special thanks to @bebullish, @mayabrewster & @pocketx for bringing me on board. Stylist: @meccajw MUA: @michelawariebi Casting: @jsmcasting Digital Tech & Lighting: @isanstudio and the rest of the Team! Post Production: @hunnyretouch #eloquii #modelthat #danascruggs

I’ve had an amazing and beyond surreal week. TWO covers in the span of few days. This one started with a wild 24 hour ride w/ the amazing @jodyquon and team @nymag. Literally came in for a meeting about another assignment last Tuesday and two hours later ended up shooting THE COVER of New York Magazine. Literally didn’t have a camera or a lighting set up or a studio or an INKLING that this would happen, but when Jody asks you to step up - you just say YES. Special thanks to @soft_when_ripe for HAULING ASS from Brooklyn to assist me. Please take the time to read this article. It’s probably one of the most INSANE accounts you’ll ever read. My FIRST assignment for the iconic NEW YORK MAGAZINE!!!#nymag #danascruggs
