Going Graphic with Native Gorilla [GALLERY]

For the Mother’s Issue, we wanted to do a sort of fashion story that featured moms and their kiddos being free and playful, a scene that’s sometimes difficult to capture on camera.

Fierce & Focused

Tisha and Kiera Thompson. A fierce and flawless mother-and-daughter beauty duo and a pair of entrepreneurs from the Akwesasne Mohawk tribe located in upstate New York, Ontario and Quebec.

Eugene Brave Rock’s February 2018 Cover Shoot

It’s indeed been awhile since we put together our photoshoot for the cover of an issue. Usually, we ask our cover person to submit photos that’d be great enough to grace the cover, including the photographer’s consent and credit. Coordinating and executing a photoshoot for the cover is a tough task. Once we select our […]

You may have seen her on one of the many videos by Teen Vogue.
