Decolonizing Our Culture Through Black Photography
GLORY: Magical Visions of Black Beauty is a compilation of their work that doesn’t just change the narrative, it completely shatters all preconceptions.
Rich stories are combined with gorgeous imagery to give us just the kind of visual storytelling that we need to decolonize our culture.

The art, the stories, and the messages in Glory inspire much needed confidence in our young Queens and Kings, and you will find yourself flipping through the book cover to cover.
The Creative Soul couple has gained worldwide recognition for their custom themed sessions. Every city has a different theme that is chosen by the couple, and are unique. Some of their past themes were
- The Kids of Whokanda – a combination of The Grinch Who Stole Chrismas and Wakanda
- Flower Girls ReImagined – a collaboration with hand made dress company Monbebe Couture
- Floral Fantasies – whimsy, colorful art pieces blooming with a rainbow of flowers
Full custom sessions are only available in the Atlanta area, so if you want a specific theme for your child, you will need to travel.
And their photo shoots are surprisingly affordable: headshot and portfolio sessions start at just $695 and Afroart sessions start at $1495.
Compared to other Black photography companies out there, this is a steal.
This book is a must have for Black children, parents, and Black photography enthusiasts alike.
I have personally purchased several copies to give to families in our organization, and I encourage you to order a copy of Glory for your family and yourself here.
