Meet The Photographer

Principal Photographer, Hussain Hijazi, with his wife, Shawna-Leigh. Stonehenge II at the Hill Country Arts Foundation campus in Ingram, TX.



My name is Hussain and I'm a Houston based photographer. I came to the US in 2010 pursuing a PhD in linguistics & anthropology, and I ended up getting married to the love of my life and becoming a passionate photographer, like we do...

I'm obsessed with cultures, languages and people. I'm also a self-professed foodie who loves traveling and active sports, more specifically, soccer. Photography allows me to merge all of the things I love by connecting with people from a variety of backgrounds, interacting within their circle of diverse interests and documenting many treasured moments. In short, I love what I do and I'd love to meet you!

- Your Friendly Local Photographer, Hussain

P.S. In case y'all were wondering, Pella is the Roman name for my home town in Jordan. It's one of the ten cities that had a coalition in the Eastern Roman Empire within the Levant.
