This portrait of Australian-born Muslim mother of three, Mastura, was made on the city streets of Perth using natural light and a portable backdrop. Mastura works as a lifestyle and fashion blogger and marketing consultant; she is also a full-time mum. When this image was taken Mastura was only weeks away from giving birth to her third child.
