Happy Mother’s Day! Portraits by Nimz & Tanaka Sotinwa present “An African Princess in Windsor”

There is something so amazingly beautiful about motherhood, and about the bond between a mother and child. Mother’s are incredibly strong yet nurturing, bold yet loving and and gentle yet firm and courageous.

Mother’s day is a special day, and in honor of all the beautiful moms out there, Portraits by Nimz was inspired to share this gorgeous creative shoot. Check out the beautiful photos below, and to all the moms out there, we love you!


Tanaka of What Mummy Wore says;
Nimz & I decided to collaborate on a shoot titled “An African Princess in Windsor“. Morayo-Hope was the princess in question & me the queen taking her on a tour of the beautiful spots surrounding Windsor Castle.

Styling wise, I chose tulle skirts as this was her favourite “fairy princess” accessory. We used head-ties to bring in the African element & they served as the perfect crowns. Our denim shirts helped toughen up our otherwise girly ensemble. We thoroughly enjoyed the shoot as can be seen in the photographs! The cobbled streets, architecture, nature & beautiful morning light all combined to make it a truly magical day for a little African Princess in Windsor.

    I’m in awe of your work What Mummy Wore. Very creative & truly an African Queen. Kudos to MH & King Judah

    I’m going to play devil’s advocate….

    Before I begin though let me say this: Mothers are Gods Angels on earth! There is nothing like a good mother to her children!, and the children in this photo shoot are just too cute for words!…That said let me now play

    There is nothing “African” about this photo shoot… wearing a tulle skirt a head scarf and Animal print shoes does not make you look African… There are far more “African” looking “Princess” clothes to choose from than a European influenced look

    Secondly why are we piling everyone as “African” When Oyibos refer to all of us as “Africans” we get a a tizzy and say I am Nigerian! or Ghananian or South African or Zimbabwean … and so on.. We are part of the problem! If we want to educate the world on who we are and how diverse and rich our culture is, then we must learn to represent, present and articulate exactly what we are, where in Africa we are from, and how we dress, eat, sleep, bathe, love. where we are from…
    Yes we all come from the continent of Africa, but, we are so unique in the individual countries that make the great continent of AFRICA!

    Ngwa! Comments! :p
