hi, i'm natalie nazee abbassi!

I'm currently living in Long Beach, California after a big move across the country from North Carolina last spring, and loving it so far!

Is the West Coast really the best coast?  Well, I'm going to figure it out soon, so stay tuned!

After graduating from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, I worked as a documentary photographer with The Resourceful Communities Program of The Conservation Fund. I was able to travel in and outside of the state to witness and document the positive changes that had been made in lower income communities and our partners after a year of receiving their grant. It was an incredible experience that allowed me to work alongside the Natural Capital Investment Fund as well as countless other non-profit organizations. 

Documenting people and places has become my passion, especially if it can make a difference in the lives of others. No matter how big or small, even if it's just a smile on their face.

Do you like portraits? Do you have a favorite place or environment you'd like your portraits taken? Environmental and location portraits are my specialty! Let's work together!
