All Melanin Photoshoot

While I was doing a help exchange in Rotterdam I ended up being the photographer for a photoshoot celebrating melanin and natural hair. It was the first time working with a team that dealt with all the behind the scenes details: makeup, outfit, posing, food. It was so nice to just focus on shooting great portraits and making these young women shine :)
