We Are Figs & Cocoa

Figs & Cocoa started in 2/2018 with the goal to feature and publish professional portraiture featuring people of color. In a world where diversity matters, F&C lives to celebrate that by displaying families, maternity, children, newborns come in all shades and colors like those with melanin. Our goal is to change the narrative in terms of the definition of family when visually searched for and give a platform for them to exist without being buried by the default standard portrayed in mainstream media. Figs & Cocoa hopes to become a popular online magazine and educational platform and supportive community for photographers worldwide.

Our Name

The name originated from two things the Founder related to when in regards to family and childhood growing up. Whether enjoying a warm cup of cocoa or enjoying a few figs, the combination invokes warmth and familial feelings.  They also represent the colors of something rich, dark, and fulfilling which is what F&C hopes to provide: a rich, colorful, and fulfilling exploration of professional photography.
