Hi loves! So I've just come back from a 5 day trip to Puerto Rico. I plan on blogging all about my trip in another post. But first I wanted to share the fabulous photoshoot I did with a few Afro Latina's (& Latino). I found this particular curly squad through a blog called Diosas al Natural. It's a blog that celebrates natural hair beauties in Puerto Rico. I decided to reach out to a few of the people in a featured post that had taken awesome natural hair group pics in San Juan, PR. Luckily for me a couple of them responded and we planned a shoot for my blog.

I am really amazed at how our love for naturally curly hair brought us all together. As someone who struggled for a long time to make the transition to natural hair, I am elated that I was able to coordinate this type of shoot. It was so refreshing to meet a group of other Afro curly heads who rock their hair with pride everyday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate me coming full circle in my natural hair journey than teaming up with other naturalistas.
The beautiful young Afro Latina's and Latino that came out to shoot with me were so very sweet and completely own their curly hair. I wish that when I was younger I had their confidence and style. We talked for a bit even through the language barrier I could tell that they had great spirits. They've all been friends since high school and have remained friends while in college. To see a group of black-Latin young people embrace both their Latin and African heritage is beautiful. What a beautiful way to represent natural hair within' the two cultures. Special thanks to my hubby Joseph for capturing these awesome images!
