Regis and Kahran are a Husband/wife dynamic duo in Atlanta, GA who specialize in lifestyle and children's photography at CreativeSoul Photography. And they are AMAZING AT IT.
They bring their Afrocentric, artistic visions to the forefront in ways many photographers could only dream of.
Their AfroArt series is both visually inspiring and uplifting.
They captured the true essence and beauty of natural-haired Black girls and boys. What was their motivation?
They wanted for more young Black girls to be exposed to more positive and beautiful images of themselves and their natural hair in media and online.
When you see the work of Regis and Kahran, you'll surely agree that they have created and captured a spectacular display of Black Girl Magic that would make any person of African descent smile.

The stunning images feature the young girls as the SLAY in elaborate costuming and creatively scintillating natural hairstyles.
A Mission To Accomplish
“We feel that it is so important for kids of color to be able to see positive images that look like them in the media,” said Kahran. “Unfortunately the lack of diversity often plays into the stereotypes that they are not ‘good enough’ and often forces kids to have low self-esteem.”
Seeing that such feelings are common among children who are not represented, the couple fights against these negative feelings by showcasing Black kids whose elegance and regality prove all too well that they love how they look.
One of the things that is so impressive about these hairstyle images is the wide range of styles, they truly capture the versatility and flair of afro-hair.
Going Out Of Their Way For Black Beauty
The Series of AfroArt came together from CreativeSoul Photo’s travels. The couple worked on these series in various U.S. states (California, Georgia, New York, Texas, Georgia).
Every state that they visited, they created a different theme and came up with clothing pieces and accessories that went with that theme.
And truly, the way they arranged these different looks ON THE SPOT, just shows that Hollywood still doesn't have all the talent that exists out in the skreetz, ha.
On set, they literally just styled everything on the fly and worked with their hairstylist to create unique looks for each kid model.
Like.... Who knows how to do something THIS unique and GORGEOUS, ON...THE...FLY? We are wonderfully made!
So take a look at how their vision of brilliant Black beauty on children with natural hair turned out.
