Atlanta-based Kahran and Regis Bethencourt, of CreativeSoul Photography, have garnered media attention with their AfroArt portrait series, a collection of styled fashion portraits showcasing natural African-American hair. No straightening and smoothing for these sessions—voluminous kinks, curls, and texture inspired each portrait. Before they fully realized what was happening, the Bethencourts’ unique voice had been added to a growing national discussion on inclusion. The series blew up on social media, grabbing attention in magazines and on TV.RELATED: More about the Bethencourt's work
