We see you.
CreativeSoul Photography believes that everyone deserves to truly be seen, so we go beyond just capturing beautiful snapshots. We create thought-provoking imagery showcasing kids across the African Diaspora by bringing to life past, present, and future visions of black culture to create a society where all kids are created equally and feel empowered to move in the world as their true authentic self.

THE FAIRY TALES BOOK
Magical Fairy and Folktales of the African Diaspora
From the New York Times bestselling authors of GLORY and renowned photographers CreativeSoul, comes CROWNED, a brilliant new collection that completely reimagines classic fairy and folk tales and introduces new ones from around the world.
Heirs is the calendar from husband-and-wife photographers Kahran and Regis Bethencourt, the team behind CreativeSoul Photography and authors of the bestselling book GLORY: Magical Visions of Black Beauty. And while last season, the photographers hearkened to the powerful history of the African diaspora, now they turn to its radiant future—through the lens of Afrofuturism, a philosophy and cultural and artistic aesthetic that dares to envision future worlds molded by and for Black experiences. But this isn’t mere science fiction: The subjects of these portraits are young, Black changemakers and activists already making a difference in their communities in fields as diverse as technology, education, sports, agriculture, and business.
