Client Love!

Nousha is amazing as a photographer but mainly as a human being. I can let go and trust that Nousha's eye and camera will capture something striking and beautiful. For those open to a collaborative experience, I highly recommend working with Nousha.
         ~ Sarah Tomlinson, Yantra & Ayurvedic Astrologer. LA.

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.Menestrina, Dancer. 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.

~ Lisa.Thaler, Psychotherapist. NYC.
A portrait photographer with an incisive eye, Nousha was able to capture moments of pause and reflection, whether in the intimacy of one's workplace, or in a very public space like the MET. She is an absolute professional, from start to finish, and a pleasure to collaborate with. I highly recommend her as a photographer and a keen observer of the global landscape.
~ Lisa Blas, Visual artist. NYC.

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.Miscall, Psychologist. NYC.

Nousha has an incredible talent in melting the person and the environment together. She doesn't only create pictures, she creates art. If there is one thing that makes her work outstanding, is her eye for details, that speaks stories! 

~ Birgit Morper. Yoga teacher. Berlin.

I really enjoyed my session with Nousha, probably because I felt free to be myself. Nousha was able to create the right atmosphere so I can be fully authentic. If you want pictures that says something about who you really are, choose Nousha!

~ Isabelle Pujol. CEO & Founder of Pluribus. France.
