Where Fashion and Fros Collide

I STYLED MY FIRST PHOTOSHOOT!

Words can't describe the feeling I had when Angela, the owner of The N Natural Hair Studio asked me to style and creative direct her photoshoot for the launch of the Goddess Locs style at her salon! Her exact words were "I want a editorial lifestyle" feel, and I just ran with it! I was charged with picking the photographer, model, makeup artist and OUTFITS!! To say this was a hefty task is an understatement, but I accepted the challenge!!

I teamed up with some AMAZING creatives in the DMV area and I am so very excited with the outcome of these photos!! The photographer Arthur is amazing. He was a huge help for me and he produced beautiful work!! The Model R'manda (@glowprincesss) is simply STUNNING, she seriously did not take a bad photo. My friend and makeup artist Ronke (@ronkeraji), simply SLAYED R'manda's makeup. I am just so pleased with the final results of this shoot!! After seeing how R'manda killed this hairstyle by the N Natural Hair Studio, this is definitely a style I want on my protective style list to come!! 

Check out a few images from the shoot! It was SO HARD to pick them because we had so many great ones, but here are a few of my favorites!!
