"I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless!"

"I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes! Posing them as adults! Was my trick to create it a timeless portrait!" the photographer added.

Jare is undeniably beautiful. She is being admired as “doll-like,” “true work of art” and “absolutely stunning.”

Many people said that she's following in the footsteps of controversial child model, Thylane Blondeau.

The child's three photos have garnered more than 120,000 likes and thousands of comments on Instagram

“All I can see is a powerful woman," Mofe captioned another shot of Jare.

In another image, Mofe wrote: "Children are a gift from heaven. I’m pretty excited and elated about my new style of child portraiture."

"Before I thought of Photographing @the_j3_sisters, I have had frivolous ideas of how I can make artsy portraits of kids And do away from the norm," Mofe added.

Jare is not the only one in her family to be an up-and-coming model.

Her sisters Jomi, 7, and Joba, 10, have also posed for Mofe’s camera. They are also featured on their family’s personal Instagram page.

Mofe told Yahoo Lifestyle recently: “All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential. I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood.”

According to Marie Claire, while the photos of Jare quickly garnered praise, Mofe also earned backlash for exploiting the little girl. One user even dubbed it as "child abuse."
