Our Joyous moments consist of just the two of us

What originally comes to your mind when you view nude Portraits? Well, whatever the thoughts are, the photos you are about to see will captivate you at one glance. Not necessarily because of the nudity but the depth and significance creatively captured.

Having to hold you makes letting go a lot easier

Saddi Khali, a Photovangelist (as he calls himself) uses photography to – capture the human body bared in its rawness- unravel beauty.

The strength of these images reveal beauty inherent in all body types, shattering the different standards of beauty the society has conditioned many to.

I find myself being more open to you than ever

His style of photography aims to reclaim confidence in the beauty that lies bare, in owning one’s body regardless of body size or flaws. In his words,

I have backed away from so many things, now am turning to face them
I have backed away from so many things, now am turning to face them

I started taking pictures to capture a beauty I have no words to describe, to illuminate the miracles in the mundane, to make us see ourselves.

Monitor your situation, keep a handle on things

One of the testimonies from his session reflects how much the way we see ourselves can boost one’s healing process and courage to move on. A woman from South Africa wrote Saddi (@saddikhaliphotos) to narrate how she found the courage to leave with her 3 kids after enduring being treated lowly in her marriage for a long time. She wrote

The reason I am pouring my heart to you like this is because the courage to pack my bags and go came after looking at the images you took of me in that session. The Goddess that you captured in those photographs would not let me take anymore Shit from nobody. She saw right through my excuses and I was left with no choice but to do what I needed to do, which was pack my bags and go. Thanks for reminding me of my worth through making me see myself beautiful and worthy of respect, love and abundance.

After basking in her love, I walk around the rest day Loved
After basking in her love, I walk around the rest of the day Loved
Loving yourself from the inside, that love blossoms and spreads out in all direction

Waiting on things that wasn't coming

Don't be timid, don't be shy, be free and fierce
Don’t be timid, don’t be shy, be free and fierce
In my arms, you can let go of your fears.
In my arms, you can let go of your fears.
My Joy starts with me
My Joy starts with me
They try to put you in a box but you are too big, too broad for them to handle
They try to put you in a box but you are too big, too broad for them to handle
Love my Heart, my Spirit, my Core and my Soul
Love my Heart, my Spirit, my Core and my Soul
