Aliah Husain, Portrait/Headshot Photographer and Clean Makeup Artist

My name is Aliah Husain and I am a women’s headshot & portrait photographer and clean makeup artist, based in San Francisco, CA.

With a past career in sales and recruiting, I was overwhelmed by this very male-dominated industry. I was burnt out and unsatisfied, and had this tremendous amount of pent up creative energy inside of me! When I had my son in 2014, I became inspired to be my own boss, create a business as an artist that I could be proud of, working with people that I admired and connected with.

Raw Portraiture was born after 4 years of self-taught photography and makeup artistry. Now, I have a studio at my Potrero Hill condo, where I provide clean makeup education services, headshots, and portraits for women. I feel that my greatest attribute in photography is making all of my clients feel comfortable and beautiful.

My two favorite things about this work are, using my creativity to tell stories of women that I work with, and making women feel great about themselves!!!

Please reach out to me with any questions or comments. I look forward to photographing you!
