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
