Of being a Mother

July 11, 2016  •  2 Comments


Hey peeps... Happy monday..The sun’s out , nights are getting shorter and it is getting warmer by the day. The days of hibernation are over and we are all excited for summer..I am presently at transit waiting to head back home after a long much needed vacation.. Its time to up my game , gather more readers and work harder.. While I sit at the airport lounge, thoughts are racing and its time to recap yet another memorable session..


Giving birth can be a time for anxiety, worry, and yes, even fear. But it doesn’t have to be.. The human body is an amazing thing, working to create a child and keeping them healthy as they grow. In the last semester , You're just a few months away from meeting your child! Its like, you can hardly wait.. Excitement, happiness, fear all at the same time.. Its just the perfect time to get a photoshoot to show off the belly and not to mention , the radiant glow on the faces..


While chit chatting as per usual , my friend Harsha asked me if I wanted to create a series of photo session for her family starting from maternity to new born , 3 months , 6month/1 year celebration.. I was thrilled and excited about creating memories for my dear friend.. I had just begun my photography journey and being asked to create lifetime memories really brought a sense of motivation in excelling in everything I do..


I quickly started looking up inspiration photos and themes I could incorporate in the maternity session.. Myself and a few friends even went to a couple of malls to look for the perfect outfit for out radiant mommy to be.. Such was the excitement.. We decided to do the maternity session at the “Oh so beautiful International Peace gardens” ..


As we got closer to the maternity session , we met a few times and decided on the theme, outfits, photo inspiration and gathered tons of props..

This maternity session was so dreamy. The couple was very comfortable in front of the camera , I felt like I just got to sit back and document their joy in welcoming a new baby to the family. The elder kid looked comfortable and followed the camera which in-turn resulted in some beautiful shots..


We did this session at the International peace garden. It was such an amazing location and provided many different backdrops. We started around 4pm and ended close to sunset. The natural light was amazing and the sun shine through the trees made it so gorgeous..


Ever since, International peace gardens has become one of my happy spots to do a photo sessions. Keep reading and share some love..
