Mariam and her sister Aesha joined me on a beautiful warm spring afternoon at Issaquah Downtown. I picked the location because I’ve always liked the small cute and historic vibes that Issaquah Downtown has. Mariam’s mother Samah told me that Mariam would be wearing a hijab because of their family’s religion and asked me if that would be okay. Of course! I am very fortunate to live in a diversified community and I am beyond excited that I get to show her how beautiful her daughter is!
Mariam was a little bit shy at first but that didn’t matter. With my gentle guidance, the photos turned out beautifully and I feel they truly show who she is and what her personality is like. When showing up for my seniors that is my number 1 goal: to showcase the unique you.
