The project of the Iraqi (Mudheef)

The project of the Iraqi (Mudheef) at Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA, aims to create a space dedicated to sharing and spreading the rich culture and history of Iraq to a global audience. The Mudheef, a traditional Iraqi reed house, holds cultural significance and serves as a symbol of heritage.

To bring this project to life, the reeds used for constructing the Mudheef were shipped all the way from the Iraqi marshes. The wait for the shipment was nearly 3 months, but the long-awaited arrival marked an important milestone in the project's progress.

The success of this endeavor wouldn't have been possible without the assistance and support of Dr. Azzam, an Iraqi expert and the Senior Director of the Iraqi Nature organization based in Italy. His expertise and guidance played a crucial role in initiating the project and ensuring its smooth execution.

As the project moves forward, the completion of the Mudheef will be a significant achievement, providing a platform to showcase Iraq's diverse culture and history to the world. You have expressed your commitment to updating us once the project reaches its final stages, and we eagerly await further news of its completion.

By establishing a space for cultural exchange and understanding, this project holds the potential to foster connections between Iraq and the international community, promoting a greater appreciation for the country's wonderful heritage.

“Here to Capture Life’s Sweetest Moments”

One day you feel baby kicks, and then you’re clapping proudly as your teenager walks across the stage. What a joy it is to watch our children progress from one milestone to the next. In the moment, it seems impossible to forget each incredible phase. But time has a way of fading memories. Like you, I wanted to preserve every part of our journey as a family. Thankfully, photography makes that possible.

I’m not your typical Houston photographer. Instead, I’m a storyteller through portraiture and an avid fun-seeker! Likewise, my goal is to help you remember those sweet snuggles, first steps, childhood birthdays, and every family milestone through vivid, captivating images filled with emotion. Each time you look through an album or glance at the portrait on the wall, you’ll feel like you’re right back in that moment.
