Bohemian Henna Themed Shoot

If you have been following me for the past few years, you may have noticed that I have a muse, Ria, who I tend to photograph when I have an idea for a personal project.  I've lost count of how many times we've collaborated, but am happy to say that she has become a dear friend and when we come together for a shoot I know we will create unique images, after all, some of my most recogzined images are from shoots featuring Ria.

Our most recent shoot actually was the brainchild of a henna/mendhi artist from Sacramento, Ash.  Ash was coming to Las Vegas to participate in a local South Asian event, and when I found out she would be here, I reached out to her asking if she wanted to collaborate on a shoot.  Ash loved the idea of a gypsy/bohemian shoot in the desert featuring the beautiful henna designs she is known for in the Bay Area.  It wasn't long before we set a date and exchanged inspiration images for the type of mood and overall feel of the shoot.  

The day of the shoot turned out to be another fun-filled, all-woman team, featuring Ash's beautiful henna designs, Ria as our model, and Priya as assistant.  I really felt like it was a bunch of girlfriends hanging out.  Thanks ladies for such a fun and fabulous day!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
