When I walked into Shahrukh and Janna’s loft and saw the entire Golden Girls series, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, Starsky and Hutch, and the Incredibles in their expansive DVD collection, I knew that I was about to photograph two very, VERY awesome people.
Janna and I go way back to high school when we were in P.E. class together. So when she contacted me about setting up a session a few weeks ago, I was more than happy to oblige! It was so great seeing her again (after about 9 years or so)!
Upon meeting Shahrukh, the first thing I asked him (after asking “Kya haal hai?”–it was the only thing I could think of to say in Urdu!) is what I’m sure he hears everyday from anyone that has some remote knowledge of Bollywood cinema:
“Your name is Shahrukh? Like Shahrukh Khan?” But he was a good sport and answered the question anyway, lol.
Shahrukh and Janna are so down to earth, have a lot of fun together and I had a blast photographing them!
A few of their favorite things! …and yes that is an airborne Winnie the Pooh headed straight for Janna’s head.
I saw this Kermit hat lying around and asked Shahrukh if he’d be down for wearing it and he was. Janna kissed his Kermit hat to which he responded: “Kermit gets all the lovin’ sometimes.” But I mean really, why WOULDN’T Kermit get all the lovin’? lol
Janna: “He says ‘everyone loves this face’.”
Shahrukh: “It’s a work of art.”
–why Shahrukh opted for a solo shot, lol.
I love this shot! Janna you are so beautiful!
A couple of cones were just hanging out behind the bench. I honestly think they’re more comfortable on top of human heads, lol.
Towards the end, at sunset.
Fun times! I can’t wait to see y’all again!
