World renowned child photographers, Regis and Kahran Bethencourt are a husband and wife duo and the imaginative forces behind CreativeSoul Photography. The pair gained global recognition with their AfroArt series which showcases the beauty and versatility of afro hair to empower kids of color around the world.

With more than thirteen years of working with hundreds of children, families and brands, they specialize in child and lifestyle photography while incorporating authentic visual storytelling. Their holistic approach to capturing one-of-a-kind moments has allowed their work to be featured on the Steve Harvey Show, The Real, BBC News, CNN, Teen Vogue, BET and more.
