Portrait of Nyhumi


Nyhumi means the carrier or a holder in Swahili. Because Nyhumi’s uncle was studying Swahili, he picked a lovely name for her. Nyhumi and her uncle were very close.

Nyhumi was a hair stylist who studied cosmetology at Mirabella Beauty College, which at the time of this posting was closed due to legalities.  She thought it was “unfortunate and very very sad” that her school was not available for future students.

As a stylist, Nyhumi liked all aspects of hair. and could not identify a favorite.

It was fun doing this shoot because Nyhumi was so enthusiastic about it. I love the reflection in the sunglasses, which I didn’t notice until I was doing post.
