Solace. By Kunmi Owopetu.

“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.” – Sarah Kay. There’s something very calming about the ocean. Listening to the waves sometimes brings the answers that you need, or maybe it just lets you hear what’s in your…

Fit-spiration. By The Alfe.

Hey hey! Welcome to our version of Sports Illustrated. Lol! This was my first time collaborating with ‘Femi. He’d reached out to me on Instagram a little while ago (you should check his page and photography page out, by the way), and when he laid out options for what he had in mind, I knew we…

The Maju Spring Edit. By Anny Robert.

Guyssss! I got to be Maju’s muse this month, along with my girl ‘Seyitan! I absolutely looove Maju’s pieces, always, and so it was such an honour to have some of their new collection’s pieces designed with me in mind. The Spring Edit, here just in time for Valentine’s Day, celebrates the diversity in femininity through…

Amber Vibes. By Ari Labadi.

Hey guys! Another Ami X Ari Labadi collaboration for your viewing pleasure. We’re still playing with lights and colours, Amber this time. There’s something very easy-going/soothing/calming about the colour, and it definitely reflects in the mood of these photos. Primi Piatti still worked as the perfect location for this shoot, adding some type of vintage…

Lights & Colours. By Ari Labadi.

Happy New Year! I don’t think there’s a better set of images to kick off this year. This is probably my longest blog post, and that’s because i’m in love with every photo in this set! Ari Labadi came back with a bang! Ari suggested the we play around with lights, and so when he…

The Second One. By Mr. Wentz.

First off, HELLO NOVEMBER! Can I get a “whoot!” for my birthday in some days? 😀 It’s been so long, this shoot almost feels like a throwback now. My apologies, I’ve been a little busy. You know how I mentioned a second wave in that last post, all those many days ago? Yeah, this is…

First Wave. By Mr. Wentz.

Hallooo! I’m pretty excited to share these photos with you! Aren’t I always? First off, let me introduce Mr. Wentz to you. We attended the same high school (shout out Dansol High School), and I was pleasantly surprised to see all the dope stuff he’s been doing with photography. Check out his instagram; @themrwentz. I really…

Black & White. By Kunmi Owopetu.

Safe to call this one “Take 2”, yeah? I’m kind of obsessed with photos in black and white. I believe that life generally, is simpler in black and white. In fact, my Tumblr; darkskinnedblack.tumblr.com is dedicated to black and white photos only. These portraits you’re about to see were amazing in colour. But the thing…

Take 1. By Kunmi Owopetu.

First off, I’m sorry it’s taken so long to post. Forgive me. I finally got to be the subject of Kunmi’s camera lens! He’s definitely one of my favourites, his Instagram page (@kunmi.owopetu) gives life to my soul. I don’t really think he can go wrong with any photo. And so you can imagine how…

Melanin-ing. By Anny Robert.

Anny Robert. I’m almost certain you’ve all seen at least one photo by him somewhere. He’s dope, ey? And with the editing too, yeah? I know! Anny takes really mad portraits! We took a bunch, and because of how excited I was, almost all of them are on my Instagram page already. Also, I couldn’t wait for…

Free Portraits. By D.Roberts.

I choose to call this shoot a trial run, because Demilade’s camera lens and I have unfinished business. Demilade had an open house at his studio the other day, and it was a great time. Good music, good food, happy people and chill vibes made this a really easy and fun shoot. I had to…

Pot de Miel. By Ari Labadi

Pot de Miel, Honey Pot. I did warn you guys about Ari Labadi becoming a constant on here. This photo series was all Ari’s idea. I happily played along, regardless of all the flower-in-mouth photos I’ve seen recently. It was a good thing that I did. I particularly like that the flower and my skin provide…
