Client Love!

Nousha's whole approach is about capturing the beauty that arises from spontaneity. She creates an environment of familiarity, comfort and ease which then allows for true nature and beauty to reveal itself. It was such a pleasure to work with her, and I couldn't be happier with the images she created. She is a true artist and an overall wonderful human!

~ Kristin.M, NYC.

As a dancer, I am looking for a photographer that can capture authenticity in movement. It took one shot, and I instantly knew I was in the perfect hands. Her attention to detail and commitment to nailing the perfect shot is why I would recommend her to everyone. Her soul and passion for the craft beams  from behind the lense, while her inviting personality radiates from all over.

~ Ashley.M, NYC.

I don't like to be photographed but Nousha made me feel so at ease. She is grounded and calm, almost blending into any activity, making the photo shoot feel like a normal, everyday interchange. She is insightful, keen and very professional; a treasure.
