When you do photography one of the perks of the gig is you get to meet a lot of new people. I’ve met most of my brides through word of mouth and other weddings I’ve done, and for that I’m grateful.
Sonia was no different.
She was a guest at a recent weddings and we chatted a bit during the course of the day since we were both one of a very few Persians at a large Indian wedding. A few weeks after the wedding I received an email from her asking if I did portraits. She was building a new website and wanted some new shots to include with her portfolio. I’m going to be honest and say I had no clue who she was at first, but if you watch the local news here in the Houston area, she’s a very familiar face. She’s part of the news team over at ABC 13.
Sonia has been a reporter in San Diego, Chicago, Waco, and even College Station and has covered politics, crime, and international stories. She is also a yoga instructor here in the Houston area and very active in her community. Her amazing talent will no doubt take her to great heights in the future and I’m grateful I had the chance to be a part of it at a local level.
