When it comes to our children, we all like to think they’re the most beautiful things to have ever graced the earth.

Of course, we have a tendency to be somewhat biased, based on the fact that we’re … well, you know, parents.


We love and cherish them above all else, so it’s fairly reasonable that we consider them through rose-tinted glasses.

None can deny that one five-year-old from Nigeria is without striking looks, however, with many dubbing her the “most beautiful in the world”.

J A R E @the_j3_sisters CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM HEAVEN. I’m pretty excited and elated about my new style of child portraiture . Before I thought of Photographing the @the_j3_sisters , I have had frivolous ideas of how I can make artsy portraits of kids And do away from the norm . The opportunity came and I had to take a bold step to express my ideas of how I want to take portraits of kids. I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless ! We continue to the next post TEAM Make up by Dammy of @iposhlooks Creative style direction @mofebamuyiwa Hair by @totalshopwigs Hair styled by @hairkarved Styled by @styledbyseun Assisted by @adebimpe_aj @ernest_chuxx @official_bigjosh #bmbstudio #bmbphotography #mofebamuyiwa #kids #kidsphotography #artsy #love #light #childphotographer #familyphotography

When photographer Mofe Bamuyiwai shared pictures of young Jare Ijalana on social media, she could never have anticipated the response. The images quickly went viral, with folk largely commenting on how naturally beautiful Jare is.

The three posts have thus far accumulated in excess of 70,000 likes on Instagram, and it’s not all that difficult to see why.




Bamuyiwa captioned one of the shots: “I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless! I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes!


“Jare isn’t a professional model,” Bamuyiwai explained to Yahoo Lifestyle.

“All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential. … I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood.”

It would appear that the photogenic trait runs in the family, in any case. Jare’s older sisters, 7-year-old Jobi and 10-year-old Joba, have also been photographed by Mofe, and they’re all apparently equally as memorable.

“Asides [sic] that [Jomi] is bright and beautiful, she is very coordinated and every pose directed, she did better than I told her to do. She definitely has buttressed and given me more proof that every little girl dreams of being a woman,” Bamuyiwai wrote in the picture’s Instagram caption.

BEAUTIFUL ART WORK OF J O M I of the @the_j3_sisters The elder sister of J A R E When I was a child I always wanted to wear my Mum’s shoes , cloths and do all she did as a woman . I wasn’t afraid of being that woman , though I wasn’t aware , nothing scared me of the cost it would take to be a woman . “I WAS FEARLESS AS A CHILD “ I’m sure every girl has gone through this stage and can totally relate . Meeting Jomi of the @the_j3_sisters Was more inspiring . Asides that she is bright and beautiful , she is very coordinated and every pose directed , she did better than I told her to do . She definitely has buttressed and given me more proof that every little girl dreams of being a woman . I guess was looking for a platform to showcase her inner woman !!! Photography is my little way of expressing my thoughts than in words and so I am not the best curator of my work . Be inspired #bmbstudio #artsy #artwork #photography #kidsphotography #childphotographer #love #girl #mofebamuyiwa

All children are beautiful in their own way, and all deserved to be told so. That said, it certainly looks like Jare has a bright future ahead of her when it comes to being photographed.
