Ngun + Zing | Portrait Session in Traditional Burmese Dress
Coolest photo shoot ever? Yes.
To be honest, I didn’t know what I was going to take photos of before I showed up to this session. Par (not pictured) had booked the session last minute and didn’t quite explain to me what the purpose of it was! Haha! But sometimes surprises are absolutely wonderful. She explained to me that in the Burmese American community there is a conference every year in Indiana and within that conference there is a pageant for the young women. Her sister, Ngun, and their friend, Zing, are going to be in that pageant in July and they have to have pictures of themselves in their traditional Burmese clothing for it.
Once I realized that I was so excited! This was truly one of the most fun photo sessions I have done and I loved hearing the story of Par, Ngun, and Zing and how they ended up in Amarillo, Texas all the way from Burma. My job is so amazing when I get to meet such interesting and sweet people. I feel blessed to be the photographer who got to photograph these girls.
