Husband and wife Kahran and Regis Bethencourt are photographers who own the CreativeSoul Photography studio in Atlanta. CreativeSoul Photography’s mission is to “shatter current standards of beauty and disrupt cultural norms.” In their book Crowned, they retell fairy tales and folk tales illustrated with gorgeous photographs of Black children as the characters. Look at the photos on their website: do they alter your perceptions and ideas about beauty? There is a Wall calendar of a selection of portrait photography coming out in 2024. The photographs are very powerful. Not only is the work incredibly creative, but the portraits themselves communicate very strongly about the individual children. As the website says, “your child deserves to truly be seen.”
