  • If you’re here, you are probably curious, creative and giving.

    You're definitely not ordinary. You love in-depth conversations with a warm coffee-shop drink, especially when pondering brilliant ideas. You know your heart could use a little boost, and that's where I come in.

    I'm a documentary lifestyle photographer because I love life's imperfect truths and authentic stories. And because I love making meaningful images for amazing souls who show their true selves. I love showing people their most authentic selves and letting them know they are appreciated. Whether you're brilliant at your career, getting married, have an energetic family, been together with your Beloved a long time, or have a daughter or mom you can't help but brag about, I aim for people to feel beautiful about who they are and proud of how far they've come in life.

    My creativity in life sparks from a love for travel, especially with my beloved Scott. We travel by letter of the alphabet. (Currently planning trip "K" for 2015). I love nonfiction – although Anne Shirley will always be my favorite literary heroine. I'm a yogi, a runner and a journal writer who will always cherish the 3.5 months I had living on an isolated South American beach with giant leatherback sea turtles. Finally, I have a passion for teaching, and pushing the envelope about what generations before me are capable of with today's technology. This is my adventure, and I hope to meet you along the way!

    As ever,
    Shuva Rahim, Lifestyle Photographer

Paisley loves drawing and art, and so we decided on […]

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – I first met Leigh a few months ago through my recent association with the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce. And then at an after-hours event this spring I learned she is married to one of my former students I taught because of my connection with Kirkwood. Small world. Leigh has a fun […]
