And then Ace tennis player Sheetal + Cricketer Robin Uthapa's little bundle of joy arrived! Take a look at some of the moments I captured between them. I am thrilled to have got an opportunity to work with this family. Humble, fun and soooooo adorable these three <3

It was much fun to work with this celebrity couple! S is so full of energy even on her way to motherhood and to match up with her was a complete different story all together. Here is a peak to the start of a new role in their life!
Lil M traveled from Mysore to Bangalore for her sitter session with her awesome parents! Little did I know I'd be making a sweet new friend in a matter of seconds into the shoot. I don't want to say too much because the images show it all.
It was amazing to see her parents just have a simple conversation with her to elicit those smiles!
Sitter sessions are best done when your little one has just learnt to sit independently (typically 8 months+). They can be done either indoors or outdoors or a combination of both.
I reached out to Mommies C + A, having worked with them before, to lend me their babies for a shoot! They are babies no more, but walking, talking smart little toddlers who were my stars for the day. I just wanted to capture the innocent interactions between two boys meeting for the second time (First time doesn't count cos they were one year old then).
When the mommies met, each one picked up the other mom's child, so the boys disliked each other instantly. However, when we began the shoot, we kept placing them together in the same frame and slowly each one took the initiative to make peace. The images below are more than just heart-warming. Its adorable how they reacted to the various factors such location, plants around them, their outfits (which were coincidentally matching!!!!) and my call-outs.
I'm always doing Model-calls for experimental shoots and if you want to lend me your baby for a day, pleaseeee drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mini's images. And pretty please, give us time to get back to you!
Greshma is a true natural in front of the camera! I really don't have much to say but to show you the gorgeous and fun images we spun out of their shoot. The two wouldn't stop giggling like romantic teenagers throughout which made the experience a little more special for them.
Shoot location: Cubbon park, Bangalore
This dimpled baby had me at one smile! Yep, that's all it took! <3
It's all about the timing with them! 6months is a pretty tricky age to capture if you don't understand what a baby likes/dislikes.
Luckily for us, M here was pretty clear she wanted a good shoot done. Just plain ol' conversation was enough to make her smile, laugh and jump with excitement!
She clearly told us she didn't enjoy tummy time as she crossed that phase a week or two ago. She was now raising herself up on all fours as seen in the image below. I loooove how babies have such clear communication!
Here's to M's second half being cute-r, naughtier and happier than ever!
I remember, exactly 10 years ago, I was anticipating my sisters twins' birth with a lot of excitement. The idea of seeing twins in our family is beyond fascinating! Now of course, my brats are turning 10 and they're great company no doubt, but I miss them being tiny, y'know? When they learnt to crawl and walk, it meant that we were greeted at the door by two bundles rushing towards us to be picked up! And they would scheme up a million ways to block the exit when we had to leave their house.
Getting to the point, I am always always excited about capturing twins because it reminds me of my niece and nephew's younger days. So when I walked into Mommy A's house, I was greeted by two dolled up twins smiling at me, followed by a million giggles throughout the shoot. And really, they remind me of fluffed up soft toys that made me want to drop my camera and cuddle them in my lap. I'm sure you will feel the same with the gallery below.
Sometimes I feel like even pictures can't do justice to the life, the personality and the fun babies are expressing. I'm just blessed to be able to share moments with them as well as preserve them for their families!
I'm definitely going to be more than biased blogging about my two best friends and their little one that's almoostttt here!!
Keeping this real, simple and true to who they are, we did the shoot indoors in their cosy home, with their first child Waffle. Being artists, they were extremely comfortable posing albeit the posed images I convinced them to do.
Indoor shoots have a certain charm that stays personal to you, your family and is timeless. Its beautiful to enter people's homes and capture them in their familiar surroundings that define their 'real' personality and comfort. And hey, put a baby or two in the frame and am sorted!
P.s. Cannot wait to see their tiny human anytime now! <3
I absolutely love it when couples come back to me for their shoots. Having covered their Seemandham (Traditional Baby Shower), I recently did their Maternity Portrait. The chemistry between them is so beautiful and effortless, making this session so much more interesting! And as you can see, Mommy here is a natural in front of the camera!
I can't wait to share their newborn session images that will follow soon on this blog!
Creating magic by just being.....
I hoped, I dreamt, I hustled and survived..great!
If you are allergic to cuteness (yes, it's a word), then I suggest you close this window immediately, because there's ridiculous amounts of cuteness in the gallery below!!
