Core Values // Company Culture

We’re a small team with BIG heart.

  • Authenticity

    Being half black owned, half woman owned, and originally from the Northeast, trust us when we say, we get it. We know what it’s like (both personally and professionally) to be misunderstood, overlooked and brushed aside, simply due to the color of your skin, gender, or unconventional appearance. ...We promise you, you will NEVER experience that here.

  • Diversity

    We believe in investing in the people who invest in you; which is just one of the reasons why diversity is so important to us. We are HONORED to fill a need in a market that isn’t properly being served, and we are PROUD to call that market our family.

  • Quality

    When it comes to quality of work, we’ve always been firm believers in the old skool mantra: Give More Than What is Expected. In the wise words of Cory Booker, “Give more than is expected, love more than seems wise, serve more than seems necessary, and help more than is asked.” — BOOM! (Cue DAP emoji.)

  • Dedication

    Whether you’re a celebrity, corporation, or home town hero, we believe that everyone deserves the same amount of dedication and respect. As a boutique agency we have the luxury, and very much enjoy, nurturing the kind of client relationships that last for years.

  • Professionalism

    What if I told you that professionalism is one of the top reasons people get excited to work with us? Apparently, professionalism is not guaranteed when you hire a professional - who knew! Although we find this incredibly disturbing, the one benefit (besides more work), is that we often get to play hero and save the day — sexy costumes and all ...which we kinda like. Woohoo!
