Maternity and motherhood they say are the most beautiful phases in the life of a woman. The miracle of Life is absolute. And what best way to preserve this phase? But by capturing the most beautiful moments of it. Salome had been a keen follower of my work. When she was progressing in her beautiful maternity phase, she sent me an email stating “I had decided that whenever I am pregnant, I will have these best moments captured by you” And so she did.Salome and Lloyd, opted for the stork package, where the best moments of the bump to baby story is captured in two photography sessions. The maternity session was photographed, when Salome was in her Seventh month of pregnancy mostly the time when the bump is gorgeously visible. This was my first maternity photography in Mumbai.
Pastel shades was the color theme that I had conceptualized. Pastel shades of Peach, Yellow and Maroon complemented the backdrops well. It was an unusually hot and humid day, but that did not seem to have been too much of a botheration to the very wonderful and enthusiastic parents to be. The first half of the day, we ventured through the scenic Sanjay Gandhi national Park, a place I could not have imagined existed in the heart of Mumbai. The dry summer forests, the towering canopies of the evergreen trees and a lake formed the backdrops of the first half. In the evening, it was the amazing Bandra Worli sealink , the crashing waves on the rocks and the varied hues of the sun setting in the vast Arabian sea. Perfect backdrops and perfect subjects at the same time is always a photographer’s delight!

Two months later, happiness arrived! A gorgeous little baby boy- Ancell! As generally the case, the best time to capture the essence of a newborn baby is anytime from 7-20 days old. For a newborn baby shoot, the props and backdrops play a very crucial role. I had a handmade crown, beautiful hand-woven beanies and custom made baskets taken all the way to Mumbai, for the shoot. When I arrived, to see the precious little miracle, to my amazement, he was a beautiful, beautiful light eyed cherub! Salome’s mother too had made some pretty lil trinkets for her grandson. While photographing Ancell, amidst the custom made props ad backdrops, he seemed to enjoy the comfort of it all. But a naughty little boy he was. At one point he surprised us all waking up from his sleep and lifting his head up gently by himself. The little wonder left us all gaping. The completion of this shoot yields a beautiful bump to baby story. The precious little miracle of Lloyd and Salome’ – Ancell.
