In celebration of black girl magic, blackness, and queen things, here are the pictures from a shoot I did for my friend Zakeima. All natural and genuine.
I find that people become more comfortable during a shoot when we are having conversations. I think that keeps them from thinking about a camera being pointed at them and they forget to be awkward or shy. They also genuinely laugh or smile and to me the captured candid moments are the best ones.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
