Weddings have this way of making me feel all mushy inside. Within moments I get transported to the time when I first became Mrs. Verma. However, this time around, there was nervousness aplenty, and not much time to get nostalgic. This was my first real wedding photo shoot. I have clicked pictures of friends or cousins at their weddings, but this was certainly a job of more responsibility! I wasn’t just another person who liked carrying her camera to the wedding, I was the only person there with a camera. Jeepers!!
Once, the pre-wedding jitters (!) were set aside, it was the simplicity of the evening that totally struck me. A small gathering, plenty of warmth. Kate and Richard, made such a handsome couple. As I was going through these pics, I just had to share some of them with you immediately.
Here’s a glimpse.
p.s. Kate / Richard, thank you for trusting me with pictures of your big day. I sure hope not to disappoint you.
I keep promising myself that I will be more regular on my blog, and it just hasn’t happened that way. There’s a backlog of way too many fun days that I should have blogged about. Quite often, I’d actually write inside my head, and would just not get around actually doing it. Hoping to improve on my track record!
When my son Nirvaan was born over 5 years back, my parents declared that their love for him would certainly surpass the attention I had ever received! It’s quite incredible how grandparents can’t take their eyes of the grandchildren. I, as a mom, may lose my temper on my kid sometimes(more than sometimes, actually).. But the grandparents, NEVER!
So, coming to this particular shoot. Little A’s parents wanted some pics of their family, especially with his grandmother who was soon flying back home. Quite naturally, he was the centre of attention during most of the shoot. It was beautiful to see how he had his grandma ( and his parents, of course!) wrapped around his little finger.
A blessed family with 2 beautiful daughters.
Even though the sun turned out brighter than what I prefer for my shoots, it couldn’t really over”shadow” the beauty in these lovable little girls. The family exuded warmth and smiles, which would surely be felt by all that know them.
I was a shutter-happy bystander, while the family celebrated their love, and enjoyed their Sunday
Angela, the mum, is a contributing writer to parenting magazines, and specializes in parenting advice to Hong Kong mamas. Once her newest baby, WobblySteps, is on its feet – she will be the GoTo mama for all others(like me) who might seek parenting help/advice.
Riley – I am still not sure what was more attractive. Was it her smile, her curls, the way she never forgot her mommy’s bag, or her vocabulary (remember she isn’t even 2 yet!). She would go marching ahead, picking up little petals for her doting parents. Every now and then, she’d find something amusing..and would laugh in a way that would thrill anyone with a camera!
In just over an hour she had given me so many moments to capture. I had a tough time telling myself to close this session!!
Thank you, Tina and Tim! Riley, hope to meet you again!
