A Nigerian photographer recently shared an image of a young girl by the name of Jare. The 5-year-old quickly captured the attention of thousands of social media users who were captivated by this young girl’s “beauty” and “doll-like” features.
“Oh yes, she’s human! She’s also an angel,” says photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa. “I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless,” she said in regards to the mature nature of the photo, also stating that she hopes the photo “speaks to her when she has reached her adulthood.”

Ironically, as beautiful as Jare is, Bamuyiwai reveals that she’s actually not a professional model. However, due to the attention garnered from social media, Jare’s mother has since created a page for Jare and her two sisters, Jomiloju, 7, and Joba, 10, who the photographer described as all having “striking features and strong characters.”
According to Ebony, The J3 Sisters page has amassed close to 31,000 followers in the last seven days.
