Sueraya Shaheen is a photographer specializing in Children’s Portraiture. Her technique is rooted in Fine Art photography + Documentary style reportage. She spends the day with her subjects. The photoshoots are always conducted in available light, eliminating the use of harsh lights + flash.
The children’s surroundings and personal environments become her ‘virtual studio’. Natural light lends her portraits … a natural feel. She later combines both the colour & black + white images to create extraordinary photo collages and photo books … Memories of a Time + Place.
En plein air, outside, on the beach, in the park, never a studio- never posed (don’t say cheese …)
Custom designed, day in the life scrapbooks, diaries, editorial, magazine-like layouts. The off guard moments …
Stitching together, mixing up black + white and colour photographs …image combinations that can be enlarged + framed- wall murals.
