When Aditi called me and wanted to do a mirror session with her daughter I was on board immediately! It is such a cute idea and always really fun to capture a child’s reaction whey they smile at you or themselves in a mirror. Leela has grown so much and fortunately I have been able to see her get big(ger). She is such a smiley, happy go lucky kid.
Aditi always takes advantage of being able to dress her little one up. But we were also able to get a little bit of a casual look as well. Normally, I wouldn’t use pieces from my personal collection, but I knew this mirror I got in Egypt would be a good option for a more rustic, simple, casual option.
And why not the kitchen rug? These were actually shots that were at the end, we were wrapping up and Leela just kept playing on the mirror I placed on the rug as we were cleaning up….Good thing I hadn’t put my camera away yet! These are some of my favorites from the session.
But the session had to get a little more girly, right?? What is more adorable then a girl playing dress up in her mom’s heels? Leela pointing to her mom’s colorful polish in the sexy peep toes Aditi is wearing….watch out mom, she might need a show closet when she gets older!
Apparently, Leela’s love isn’t just limited to fancy adult lady shoes…she also really loves books. This little kids Ganesh book was graphically AMAZING….like I want one for me! Plus it made her really happy to read/play with it. Look at this sweet little face.
Aditi has really become a friend over the last couple of years. Working with her and shooting her kids, has let us get to know eachother pretty well and I know I am there for key moments in her family’s life. She has such beautiful, happy kids and she is a really great person I am happy to have gotten to know. Thanks Aditi for letting me be a part of your life and sharing your family with me.
