I love this woman.
I’m sure Behdis appreciates the title of this post having her age in it. : ) I feel justified in stating it though because not only do I know you all are as shocked as I was when I found out (since she looks amazing) but also because we’ll all read it anyway when she’s featured in some local magazines spotlighting the journeys and triumphs of various women turning forty. Hers is sure to stand out.
From the first email I received from Behdis, simply stated, I was intrigued…you’d think it was because I was given the opportunity to shoot pictures that would be published in a magazine but really the more I got to know about her the more anxious I became to meet her in person and to read the full story. Born and raised in Iran she survived war there through her high school years until she left for the US in 1989. She’s gone on to be very successful in her career, raise a wonderful bright daughter, and recently added Breast Cancer Survivor to her list of achievements. Truly an amazing woman I can’t wait to know more about. Keep your eyes peeled(mine will be) for more pictures of this beautiful in New Jersey’s Star Ledger and Local New York City Papers.
