You may know her from her former camera bag line… or perhaps you are a “PropInsanity” junkie! We love this Chicago area based photog for her photo skills and her heart for the community! Tracy and Jessica Weinstock Landers are co founders of Happy Togs, an online community that strives to encourage and build photographers and entrepreneurs rather then bring them down! Tracy also just launched The Creative Artists Collection  and editing Library TODAY!  4 of the 30 instructors in this online editing school are Reset Conference Speakers! We are so thrilled for her and the big waves she is making in this industry! Go check it all out!

Who inspires you? Not one person in general, but I’m always inspired by strong women who are able to be mothers, wives, and business owners… With a healthy balance to it all

Any areas in your life that could use a “Reset?” Can’t think of a single thing… I wish I could make everyone happy, and everyone feel the love that I have on a day-to-day basis… Hard work pays off, and life may never be easy, but it is still beautiful. I just wish I could make everyone in the world realize that.

What three words best describe your photography style? Vibrant, whimsical, and fun

Best secret for working smarter not harder? Pick a genre of photography that you love, and hone in on it. Are used to shoot every and any form of photography… Now that I do only newborns and fine art for children, it has made all the difference.

Any successes or failures in business that have shaped the way you run your business now? My worst critic… And drag me down for a while, and made me second-guess what I do. But once I am braced “me”, I flourished

Summary of what you hope to share with attendees of the reset conference. tagging you all so you don’t miss it. Embrace your competition, don’t fight it. Kindness always wins, and at the end of the day, when our work is done, I want to be remembered for helping others, not for being someone who brings other people down.
