Perhaps you remember 5-year-old rising star Jare, 'the most beautiful girl in the world'? Well, the photographer behind her hauntingly beautiful portraits has blown up on the internet since then, with her other photography artworks being hailed for their unique aesthetic.

Her name is Bisola Mofeoluwa Bamuyiwa, owner of her own photography company BMB studio in Lagos, Nigeria. With a talent like hers, you would think she had studied studio photography all her life, but in fact, her only degree is in Project Management Technology from Lagos State University. Bamuyiwa said she was self-taught with the help of YouTube and photography mentors. In high-school she bought her first camera, documenting school parties, and became a professional photographer in 2012.

What Bamuyiwa's talent shows is that it takes a lot more than lessons to be an artist, you have to have a creative eye and boy she does. The photographer travels across Nigeria and Africa capturing the faces of the most exquisitely diverse African people you've ever seen. She told Bored Panda she is very selective when choosing her models and picks them based on the theme she wants to create in her beautiful photos: "Most times I look for the weakness and make it strong and inspirational."

While her work traditionally falls under the 'lifestyle, portrait, and wedding" categories, she has found another name for what she is - a beauty photographer. "I realized everyone is beautiful, I haven’t seen anything ugly unless some I have seen I ask God “why” lol. But then I take the ugly and I make the world see the beauty in it," she writes on her website. This perspective is something she hopes is passed on to her viewers, "I want people to see how I envision life in everything I photograph and give someone hope," she said.

As for Bamuyiwa's newfound fame, she told us she has been pleasantly shocked at the positive responses to her portrait photography works: "I am very surprised because I have handled a camera for many years and I never saw this coming too soon to me and I'm eternally grateful and willing to do more and better." We can't wait to see more of what this impressive photographer comes out with, scroll down below to see some of her dazzling portraits, and don't forget to upvote these beautiful people!

Look - I know she's gorgeous. But would she be really that much less gorgeous without the ton of work done in photoshop? Why is her natural beauty not enough?

I agree, it does look like a wig (on the other shots as well)

She's beautiful. But I looked closer and saw that looks like a lacefront? Or maybe it's just me, but that doesn't look like her real hair.

It's not her own hair. I saw photos of her with her sisters. But this shot is stunning and dramatic.

There's a few billion people on this planet. No way could any one be labelled the "most beautiful" out of these billions. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This girl is very pretty but unfortunately it looks very artificial

I don't like the fact that they felt they had use photoshop on a little girl.... I think that sends the wrong message.

I don't see any Photoshop other than possibly some lighting. That's her hair and why can't people just be positive for a change? For God's sake she's gorgeous, and young what on earth would they need to photoshop?

Are they the same girl? If you look closely, their faces seem a little different.

I am sorry if I sound ignorant but is this the Nigerian gele? I absolutely love it! Whenever I see the ladies wearing their traditional wear, I feel like I am in the presence of goddesses. Such bold colors, it never ceases to amaze me.
