Photographer Diana Hernandez @Dhl96 presents this beautiful fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Alexis Saunders @alxisndrs represented by NW Model Management @nwmodelmgmt.
The goal of this editorial was to highlight natural beauty. “We are constantly battling with figuring out how to love ourselves, while constantly being told by social media what ideal beauty standards are and how our lives should look. Alexis, the model, does not fit most of those standards. She’s simple, average in height, has brown skin, and is a little shy. All of those things are beautiful and I wanted it to show through the photos,” says the photographer. “We wanted to go with a minimalistic look. No artificial lighting, minimal clothing, natural hair, and face.”
