Beautiful Black Women Photoshoot #2

On Saturday December 16 at the Rustbelt Coffee shop, Kool2dos and Transitions by John Poon joined forces again to showcase some of Toledo’s beautiful black women. This was the second shoot of a three-part series. The first event was held in October.

 The initial event had such a great turnout, John Poon and Keith Cook knew they had to do it again. 

Rustbelt coffee is a trendy coffee shop located on Ontario in downtown Toledo.  It was once an antique shop, It has beautiful exposed brick, antique wood and high ceilings, perfect back drop to showcase the beautiful women in attendance. 

Nothing but good vibes filled the conference area at Rustbelt as the ladies began to arrive. The shy kittens who walked in left as confident lionesses after their personal shoot with the photographer.  It was great to see women all flavors, and walks of life, enjoy good conversation, food and peach (virgin) Ciroc Bellini all prepared by Cook.  He truly worked hard to treat women like royalty. 

Cook has done events and promotion since he attended BGSU, he has been a comedian since 2009. When asked why he wanted to do the BBW event he stated without hesitation “The media, society and even our culture does not celebrate Black, Latino, Asian women.  If no one else is going to do it, we must start with our own”.

Poon has been shooting portraits for the last eight years. He was honored to be a part of BBW event. “Black is beautiful, we were not taught to celebrate ourselves in school, they only focused on the negative aspects of our history. Black women play strong role in the home and in society.” He said.  He was flattered to be a part of celebrating sisters in a positive way.

Ladies, get ready for the finale. It will be held at M’Osteria and Bar, Feburary 3 starting at 2 p.m.  Make some new friends and let JP showcase your unique style and personality.  Participants have access to personal catalog online and are able to select up to five images from the shoot for $50 registration fee.  JP will also print images upon request.
