theamethystsoul: This isn't a question but a thank you for posting your "BC" video. It was such an encouragement for me to go natural 2 years ago. Your courage then and now has changed so many lives, and helped so many of us reconnect with our identity, who we really are! I pray that God will continue to prosper you in all you do! Thank you!

Thank you so much for your kind words! I never knew how cutting my hair four years ago could lead me on such an amazing journey : ) 

Mae | Washington, DC Lifestyle Photographer


Yesterday I had the privilege of photographing the very beautiful and equally as talented Mae aka Natural Chica

If you are a natural hair lover, I’m sure you already know who this is :) With over 81,000 subscribers to her youtube channel, Mae is one of THE go-to resources for all things natural hair- everything from product reviews, style tutorials, healthy hair tips- Mae has it all! So it’s safe to say that I was beyond thrilled when I noticed she became a fan of my DFinney Photography facebook page a few months ago! I reached out to thank her and extended the offer for a photo session- fast forward a few months and she graciously took me up on my offer :)

We decided to go with a laid-back vintage inspired session and I am suuper excited to post these images! The makeup artist Denyelle and I had a blast working with Mae! She has such a sweet personality and I think her photos reflect that beautifully :) 

Here’s where you can find Mae online:
