Project Melanina

Project Melanina

I recently had a photoshoot with Joey Rosado of Island Boi Photography for his project “Melanina” in Dallas Texas.

The purpose of this shoot was to showcase women in all shades of melanin embracing not only their natural beauty but also owning their unique journeys. We are not letting ourselves nor anyone else control our happiness or limit our potential for growth.

“Life is about doing the things that make you happy, not the things that please other people. When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”


These images are all unfiltered and unedited. They are natural, raw and imperfect just as myself.

Special thanks to Joey Rosado (@IslandBoiPhotography) for capturing these images. An exhibit will be held showcasing the entire “Melanina” project in 2016 so stay tuned.
