Recently a photograph of Jare the five-year-old who the world dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” went viral. Now the woman who took the famous photo is sharing more of her work and the images are spectacular. Bisola Mofeoluwa Bamuyiwa, a self-taught Nigerian photographer, has posted many portraits to her Instagram account and people are blown away by her talent.
She writes on her website :
I can’t count how many beautiful people I have approached to have them photographed. I realized everyone is beautiful, I haven’t seen anything ugly unless some I have seen I ask God “why” but then I take the Ugly and I make the world see the Beauty in it. So that’s where I am also called a #beautyphotographer and a portrait photographer.
Looking through Bamuyiwa’s lens we see the beauty too.

Happy 6 months Ademide ??? Why are children special ? They are like message in a bottle , telling you , regardless of what ever is going in the world , there is hope that everything will be just fine . And of course they are purest form of existence and it can’t be taken away from them . #bmbstudio #bmbphotography #love #kids #pure #gift #baby
I have to tell you guys for free that posing kids in this manner is quite difficult but it’s worth it after seeing portraits like this . But Lase was different it wasn’t so difficult after all as I expected . It was after we told his mum to leave the studio , we were able to get him at ease and more coordinated. He has a very soft spot for his mum @iposhlooks and we didn’t realize she was a distraction until we tried it . Happy birthday ???? LASE , you Are a blessed child ! Have all the pizza today . We love you ! Suit by @iplstore Shoes by @iplstore #bmbstudio #mofebamuyiwa #kidsphotography #childartportrait #kidsfashion #love

My scars don't dictate who I am *DESIRE BENJAMIN* There are moments in life that define us, moments that alters, disrupts, set our lives on a different course forever. That is the moment young Desire Benjamin faced after gas explosion that left her severally burnt after 3months in the hospital. She came off with these scars as life's souvenir. Desire's body is now adorned with scars that now teaches us the true meaning of beauty and life. She looks at her scars as they lay about in parchments all over her body and a new sense of love, appreciation and hope is kindled. She feels the undulating contours and pages of life's lessons jump off of them. She could have given up, stopped living and wallow in pity, and sympathy, but not Desire. While photographing this rare beauty, we felt the gush of life oozing out of her, enthralled by her enthusiasm, amazed by her narrative and absolutely blessed by her presence. Find the Beauty in your scar and let it be a blessing Make up by @faaribysisiope Creative direction by @mofebamuyiwa #black #scar #bold #beautiful #fearless #survivor #bmbstudio #mofebamuyiwa #Art #Artphotograhy #model #happygirl #soulful #artist

@titikuti came in for a portrait session and he wanted just simple Polaroid head shots . We delivered what he WANTED . But I NEEDED something else more . I couldn’t help but see he looked like a “god” I told him I love the freckles on his face and Hair . And I told him he could act a role as Jesus and that’s what I really saw in him So I picked up my crucifix inspired Art Craft that had been in my store room for the past few years and Now was the best time for the crown to be worn . IM NOT THE BEST CURATOR OF MY WORK . But I believe in what I see as beautiful .
