It was a pleasure to photograph Miss. Pakistan, Ayesha Gilani of Arlington, Virgnia. The concept of giving her wings was all her own, but in so many ways I find it symbolic of all women. This shot turned out beautifully despite the cold weather we under went and the security officer at the National Harbor who was not entirely amused that we were in a taped off location to shoot this shot in order to avoid the construction debris everywhere.
Congratulations to Ayesha on her title. We hope that she has found wonderful ways to use it to benefit the good of others. Cheers!
