I did a beautiful portrait session with Soraya Jamal a couple of years ago. She recently came back for new publicity photos because she had some amazing new costumes she wanted to feature. Plus, you grow as an artist, there are more aspects you want to explore/capture. Plus, it was fun!
We went for two really different moods: dark, mysterious, exotic, and bright, fun, full of movement. She brought lots of props — veils and fan veils, sword– and we put on some loud dance music and had fun experimenting and creating these looks.
Find her dancing everywhere near Boston and Providence that features live belly dance and music — like The Athenian Corner in Lowell and the Middle East in Cambridge.
