Behind The Scenes: Photo shoot ‘Of Love & Other Monsters’ in Paperazzi for Natasha Salon


I am sure you all saw this crazy editorial shoot called ‘Of Love & Other Monsters’ which was published in Paperazzi Weekly around Valentine’s Day. (see below)

This was a huge passion project for both Natasha Salon and H&Z Creative Agency.

But there was a lot of work that was put into executing the shoot by all people involved including Zara Tareen, myself & the lovely ladies at Natasha Salon (Natasha & Sabrina Khalid) when it came to the photography, post/special effects, art direction, copy writing, make-up, styling and concept development. Not to mention the faces of the shoot, Amna Baber & Bilal Ashraf (besides myself.) Aside from all the hard work, we had a few goofy fun moments that I’d like to share and of course the prep for each look was fun too.

Getting my hair crimped.. crimpled? Wait what’s the right word?

Here’s my little doll friend who is waiting in line to get her make-up done as well! Wait till you see what she looks like in the double page title spread! Can you spot her?

These lace lashes were super cool.

Xpoze Monthly Valentine Issue Interview & Photo Shoot – BTS


 

For their February Valentine issue, Xpoze Monthly decided to do a cover, interview and feature couple photo shoot of my wonderful husband Ali Safina and I.

Let’s just say there is about 12 – 13 pages of in-depth Q&As and well.. lots of photos. **TMI ALERT**

Luckily my other partner in crime was the one photographing us. Wild guesses? Yep… Zara Tareen.

This is us(Zara, Myself, & Ali Safina) at NPRO waiting for my hair to get done. Zamin from NPRO did my make-up & hair, he’s really good. (The phone cover was a gift from my Mom. You can find more like this at http://www.katespade.com/accessories-tech/ks-accessories-tech,en_US,sc.html )

Here are some selfies of the process and after the make-up. The hair is still missing the crazy amounts of backcombing and product.
