There’s something about seeing the fresh face of innocence and joy in little kids that brings out the best in us. For some time, children of color were excluded from images that celebrate our innocence and beauty in media. It’s been changing. We’ve been changing. The hashtag #blackgirlmagic helped. Black Panther helped by showing that no one can capture us like we can.

Enter husband and wife duo, Kahran and Regis Bethencourt of CreativeSoul Photography, who just signed a 6-figure book deal with St. Martin’s Press to capture the beauty of children of color. The book will be titled ‘Halo’ and is expected to be available online in 2019.  Recently, Kahran told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that they want to change the discussion around our history. “People think our history starts with slavery. What about when we were kings and queens?” 
Peep some of the powerful and syrupy sweet photos that will make you understand exactly why these two are getting the BIG BUCKS!
