We are very thankful for the all the comments, well wishes and the joy all of our friends and families have shared with us in the past few days. We are SO thrilled to introduce to you guys for the first time our beautiful baby girl Jiya Patel. Its only been few days and she already has me wrapped around her finger. I’ve been dreaming to do this photograph of her on an Eagle’s Helmet since the day I found out we were expecting. I really didn’t know if I was going to start this new brand for Newborn Photography until the last few months. I wanted to be sure if I did start this brand, then I’d have to make sure the photographs I take of Jiya and all other babies to be one-of-a-kind. Even though I’ve photographed 5-6 newborns before… I really wasn’t sure if I wanted to do this along with Wedding Photography.
Now about the Image you see below… It took us about an 1 hour to photograph just for this picture and over 2 hours to composite, edit, touch-up and perfect. Babies can be very moody and Jiya really isn’t ready to be daddy’s little poser (yet). It’s only been 4 days since her birth, so I can understand why she wasn’t behaving for us while we prepped and took 4-5 images to composite together to make this one. Typically we’d wait to do these images for about another day or two, but you guys have been waiting to see her. So it was either the Eagles Helmet or the Hershey Kiss one you’ll see in a few days. So far only very selected members of the family have seen her picture, which we apologize for but as a photographer I wanted to make sure the first picture I show the world is as perfect as she is. We are doing Jiya’s main photo shoot in 4 days, so expect few more photographs to come out in the next week.
