“I am a woman who recognizes her own depth. The divinity of my architecture is not just limited to flesh and bone. The femininity of my curve, the sacred geometry of my vibration, the light of my auric flame. I am a woman sculpted by the hands of infinite intelligence. The entirety of the Universe is fashioned inside of me— I am the echo of God. -S. Ajna ?✨”

I can honestly tell you that Creating , planning and executing this shoot wasn’t the hardest part. Shooting it was. It’s the height of rainy season and every outdoor natural light photographer’s nightmare. What do you do when every aspect of your shots is completely dependent on the weather and its atmospheric changes? and it’s been raining everyday nonstop this August and all you can do is sit, praying and waiting just to catch a glimpse of sunlight in the sky?
I wanted that radiant golden glow the sun leaves on bare flesh. That hotness and catch-fire sun-kissed look. Like naked truth, untamed and free!
I made a mad dash outside immediately the sun temporarily and halfheartedly broke free from the sky. I got there in time, and tried to get as much shots in as I could with my 18-55mm Canon kit lens .
Some of the shots were hand-held and required me sprawled on a bed of stones, however, I had to preset the camera and showed my good friend Chioma how to take and capture some of the shots for me. Overall, the Sunlight lasted for about 20 minutes and went away for good! I mean!!! No matter, it was a good shoot after all.
