Durham Dances - Nischi Shetty!

I am so excited to share these photographs of Nischi from Brightleaf Square! She has been dancing since her early years and became more passionate about it in her late 20’s. She is absolutely stunning! Her bright colors worked perfectly with the Brightleaf lights and signs. I am really thrilled with how they turned out! We also made some killer portraits at the end of the session - her styling was amazing. Check out the gallery for more images and scroll on down to learn more about Nischi!
