A NEW ADDRESS

Hi Guys !

It’s been quite a lull around here for past few months. But I promise this post comes with a good news : )

Serendipity has moved to a new address. It’s more personal and so much more for you and not just photos. However, I love WordPress and my blog here (since it’s my first home on the web) so I will keep this space for an exciting new personal project in the pipeline : )

So head up to the new place for SERENDIPITY  and I would love to hear how do you guys love/not so much love the new look : )

BRIGHTER THAN SUNSHINE

I need to confess that I honestly did nothing in this photo-session. But just got lucky by being there and witnessing this utterly gorgeous family!

We took a few pictures in the nearby garden and thought of resting a little bit and return back in sometime. I went up to their house and the light was so so beautiful that I thought of continuing the photo-session.

HAPPY LITTLE BOY

Nishka found my blog as she herself is regular at blogging scene. She contacted me sometime back when she was in Dubai.

After months of keeping in touch and going to and fro on dates we finally freezed on Anay’s birthday for the family session. And luckily they were going to be in Bombay then!

Anay has the most charming smile I have seen, isn’t he a darling!

Windows happen to be my favourite spot to shoot! Since I am not too fond of artificial lighting, I make best use of the gorgeous big window lights!

I wish Anay and his family a lifetime of happy smiles!
And stay tuned for some more family sessions + gorgeous couples on the blog!

Love!

NIVEDITA, SAGAR AND THE BENGALI BABY SHOWER

Nivedita and Sagar wanted to document this special phase in their life and I am so glad they thought of me ! Nivedita was going too have her Bengali Baby Shower “Shaad” and I have never got a chance to witness one so I thought of scheduling their Maternity shoot on the Shaad Day so I could see the ceremony and also take pictures!

Those who know me would know how much I am fond of the whole bengali culture and the Calcutta city in particular ! I was extremely excited for the Shaad ceremony and the Bengali food : )

Nivedita looked absolutely divine and the whole transformation from the dresses to the traditional Bengali saree made way to these beautiful images.

Her mum is a vision to behold ! I was so eager for her pictures after I had seen her at their wedding and didn’t leave a chance to take her pictures. I am guilty of sidelining the couple because Nivedita’s mum had all my attention !

You see the beauty runs in the family ! Nivedita with her sister Annindita !

SHAHANA & SHAHRUKH

Shahana & Shahrukh were getting married after a long courtship and I second-shot for this wedding. Shahana & Sharukh are really lovely quiet and private people and so was their wedding.

Very lovely, intimate affair for two days. We started with Shahana’s mehendi.

For those who are wondering what does Nido mean, Nido ~ A term used to describe an exciting situation. Can portray a feeling of  awesomeness.

Getting ready for the Luncheon with the heirloom jewellery.

AGASTYA & HIS FAMILY

What better time to take some family pictures than the occasion of Father’s Day! Amrutha wanted some family pictures and we got lucky with beautiful weather over the weekend. I met them at the nearby park and her son Agastya is an absolute darling!

Very very well-mannered and caring ( he wanted to share everything he got with me : ) ), very smart (He knows when a meteor hits earth, it makes a crater ) So delighted to meet the family of my Japanese teacher after 8 long years !

Starting out with my favourite frame of the day.
