This was my second natural hair shoot but with a photographer I’ve never worked with before!  For some reason, I enjoy trying and doing new things that make me feel extremely uncomfortable. I never thought in a million years I’d be able to confidently model WITH my natural hair. Yet, here I am doing it! A special thank you to Kristin for being able to see the vision, help create with me, and take the time out of her schedule! 

I don’t think many people realize how important these last two shoots were for me.  Facing my fears by using my natural physical appearance to create has helped me grow in a way that I feel like I can do anything I want. We’re always told, “you can do anything you want”, but rarely do we ever believe it. You can bet now that I finally believe the saying. Growing up in a society where there’s beauty standards that we actually follow is so beyond fucked up. To hell with beauty standards, I don’t give a damn anymore. I can and will show you different versions of beauty to open your eyes. It’s in my hopes you’ll be able to see beauty in everything and everyone. 

Sincerely,

Raven

Hi guys! I apologize for lack of updates. I’m still alive.. I think! I’m going to try to upload more outfit of the day posts instead of doing full on photoshoots. I feel like I’m not good enough lately because I don’t have all the fancy smanchy blogger photos like most instagram fashion bloggers. My brain gets overwhelmed and I end up not shooting anything. So, I decided a little at a time is better than nothing at all!  I hope you all are well and are excited for summer!

 

xoxo,
