Ace photographer, TY Bello shared the photo on her page and also talked about her experience working with Stephanie. Read below;
When they asked me to photograph Stephanie for their cover, I instantly saw this image of her in my head. The idea came together almost effortlessly… The cornrows.. The fabric..the look in her eyes. I knew I wanted her to look beautiful .. But more importantly.. I wanted her POWER to come through. Recently pregnant myself… I wanted the image to somehow covey that being with child..considering how vulnerable it can make a woman feel ..is a beautifully empowering experience . The entire journey of being a portal for the beginning of another person’s divine journey changes you to your core. You begin to develop strengths you never even knew you had. Here in this image is a strong and inspiring Nigerian woman. Her story will bless you.
