I first met Avani, sort of… when she was in her mummy’s tummy at our maternity session. When my dear friends, Sandeep and Balraj, asked me to do their Maternity session as well as their Newborn Session I was excited! This marks my fourth photography session with them, and a big part of their life journey. From first shooting their engagement session, then wedding, to maternity and now their first born… I feel like I’ve lived it through with them (minus the pregnancy!)
A couple of my favourite people were expecting a baby and I was more than happy to photograph their special moment, specially since it was their first born. Sandeep & Balraj were open to ideas and that always makes for more unpredictably creating shots. Since I absolutely love photographing by the beach and parks with lots of greenery in the background, I chose to shoot by Lakeshore.
I had the pleasure of photographing Amber, a few months after she was born, when she was a itty bitty little thing. So several months later, being called in on a special favour, I was asked to photograph her first birthday, which was held at the Atlantis Pavilion in Toronto down by Lakeshore.
From attention to detail like pink balloons, pink flowers and pink cupcakes to the decor of the venue against the beautiful Toronto skyline backdrop made for a memorable event. Amber was a sight for sore eyes in her white and pink taffeta dress while her parents, Pari and Ravi, were also adoringly dressed in shades of pink to match the theme.
While Amber was engrossed with the pink helium balloons and energetically trying to run away everywhere, I was able to capture some picturesque moments; My favourite photo being the family portrait of the Oza family truly cherishing their firstborn’s 1st birthday.Read More»
