Photoshoot with Ronita Lal

Ronita Lal is an accomplished photographic model having worked with long time Indian Community and 'Miss India New Zealand' photographer Bhikhu Bhula of Wellington. She is also a finalist in the 'Miss Universe New Zealand 2015' pageant.

What resulted was a series of moody and sultry photos in a variety of outfits and poses that really projected her ability to communicate through her facial expressions and body language.
