Kainath & Rishad ~ My First Live Birth Documentation
Kainath & Rishad came to us a few months ago for their maternity shoot & for the first time a live birth shoot. I was really nervous with doing the live birth documentation... but here it is.
Kainath is so graceful and effortlessly beautiful that we decided to do a soft natural shoot on the beach at the golden hour. And i love the images we made...
Her poses came naturally, as did her laughter.
They had a scheduled C-section, I was excited as well as nervous since I'm an emotional person, so much so that I always end up tearing along with the bride during the Vidaai so i did not know what to expect with this documentation.
The delivery went perfectly, except for a couple of minutes after the baby was born and we could not hear him cry, I stopped shooting out of respect for the parents and the tensed situation, but in retrospect I wish I had continued shooting to capture the raw emotions on their faces.
Shoots like these make me realize how lucky i am to be doing the work that i am doing, and to be able to capture such special moments for people around us who are as beautiful as these moments.
Kainath & Rishad have been blessed with a baby boy, Aayan!
We are also really thankful to Dr. Pooja Nadkarni Singh and the whole team of doctors and staff at Nimaaya for extending their full cooperation to me during the shoot.
