Some time back, two very close friends wanted a portrait session done for their newborn daughter, Anaya. The mother, Ruth, wanted a set of images that captured the profound joy and love that the couple were experiencing after the birth of their little angel. We decided to meet at their home so that everyone involved would be in their comfort zone. After three hours, and various wardrobe changes, we came away with a treasure chest of memories of this precious little one.
The parents also wanted a still image video of the session put together with verses from the Bible overlaid on select images.
A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous couple. After a few quick back and forth exchanges with Archana and Karthik discussing ideas, locations, outfits and themes, we decided on a natural light, late evening shoot, over in Santa Cruz by the lovely Natural Bridges State Beach.
