Hey guys! Meet Sara, she’s Hijab Hills stylish sister from Rotterdam, Netherlands. I snapped this photo in Amsterdam shortly after a meet & greet. I immediately noticed how it resembled the shots that inspired me growing up, looking back to some of the Japanese cultural exchange photo books and other documentary literature that I enjoyed collecting. There’s just so much I appreciate about it. Not to mention the stylish Sara, and the European Citroen that makes up the backdrop.
I met Hiba and her brother Ali in Sydney, Australia. They were such a very enthusiastic family, and she was very excited to participate in Modest Street Fashion. I was invited over to their house to put a few goals on Ali in FIFA. I mean to play FIFA with Ali, ahem. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get around to it, but no worries! Soon times! ;) Just make sure you practice bro! Lol

Photographing with Bushra in Houston, Texas was a great reminder of how awesome it is to have people who believe and support your endeavors. Not only was she passionate about participating in Modest Street Fashion, but her mother accompanied her for the shoot just as passionate and excited for her daughter as Bushra was for the shoot. Those are the kind of people we should surround ourselves with.
I snagged this shot of Hasana in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I told the sister it would take us 3 minutes to shoot. I actually got this shot in 2 snaps. We were all excited about how nice it turned out. It’s always easy to grab a good snap when the subject is as fun and stylish as she was. That’s the case with most of the people I’ve captured thus far, all fun & stylish!

During my visit to Paris, I wasn’t really sure about the turn out we could expect shooting for modest street fashion in light of France’s growing disdain for religions and specifically the ban on hijab in many public places there. To much of my surprise, we had a great turn out and met wonderful people such as my now bro & sis @hafhmk & @samyalmukmin I captured this portrait of the sister above in the first snap. I appreciate this shot a lot because I love how the light falls upon her face and her posture brings recollection to some of the photos I personally admire of my favorite photographers. Lastly, she’s just styled really cool!

This is Lina from Sweden. Not only is she extremely fashionable providing a street style back to school look, but she’s really talented with football (soccer). She displayed her skills to a few of us shortly before a meet and greet in a Swedish sports store. Mad skills! More importantly, she’s very passionate about justice for the Palestinian People! I always find myself with a great deal of sympathy for the Palestinians as they are not only my brother and sisters in humanity, but their struggle resembles much of a combination of what the Black Americans faced throughout history in the USA, and the apartheid placed upon South Africans. Let’s join her and all the Palestinian people for justice and self determination. #PrayForGaza

In New York City, New York resides an intelligent, chic, and trendy young Faten, or as she’s popularly known as @fatooshhh
We made plans previously to photograph during a visit that was only a week prior to the time we were able to capture this shot. We were both unable to commit to the plans we made before, but only a week later able to snag this wonderful capture that really displays a signature photo style of mine, as well as nearly an industry standard for street style shots. Faten also adorns herself in a long flowing pattern that anyone finds enchanting. Great times!
