I grew up in the arts studying dance, theatre, drawing, and music, graduated high school early at 16, then went on to Texas Southern University. Shortly after, I started my corporate career in 2010, living in Dubai and Iraq for a couple of years working in the Oil & Gas industry.
After returning home, and reconnecting with my high school bestie of 15 years, we decided to break out of the friend zone and got married in 2014. His career took us to Nigeria for a while and we spent our down time traveling the world visiting Thailand, Vietnam, S. Africa, Tanzania, Hungary and several European destinations.
This is where I got my photography start, starting with street photography, then eventually portraits of friends and events in Lagos where we lived at the time. I definitely caught the photog bug and decided I wanted to do it on a full-time basis when we returned home to Texas.
We now live in Richmond, TX and I’ve been a full-time professional photographer since 2018. We have two children, Emerald (Emmie) & Jidenna (JJ), and Finn, our big dog who still thinks he’s a puppy. When I’m not working, we love spending time in nature exploring the State Parks and lounging on the beach.
My family has been involved with Families Helping Families for four years now, photographing as well as distributing meals to families in need. It has been my pleasure to help my neighbor Quincy continue to grow and serve more people in the community.
I am a proud Houstonian, born and raised here and I continue to call Houston home. As a first generation Persian/Pakistani American, I am proud to say my parents migrated to the United States in 1973, earning their bachelor’s degrees, and Houston is where my father became a successful business owner for 40 years now. He shared his appreciation for the chance the Land of Opportunity provided him with my mom and us 3 children. Because of this, I find the need to give back to the community that gave life to my family.
I graduated high school from Westbury Christian School in 1999 and attended Houston Christian University until 2003. HBU where I met my dear friend and founder of Families Helping Families, Quincy Collins. Having had my daughter Alayna in 2007, I went on to be awarded the Dean’s List of Honor’s recipient when I graduated from Purdue University with a 3.86 GPA. My career path led me to success in business operations management in various industries, and I currently serve as a Project Manager.
Families Helping Families is one of the charitable organizations we have adopted into of our lives, and I am incredibly honored and humbled to be the Team Lead of Family Services. Having firsthand interactions with the receiving families, I feel and see the genuine gratitude, tears of joy, and utter relief they express, and it is truly priceless. Every second I spend with this organization is worth it. Giving back to struggling families fills our souls, and we will proudly serve our community with Families Helping Families. I thank the community for providing the life my family cherishes, and this is the least I can do to express our gratitude. I would not be here today if it was not for this community.
