Robert, Anjali and baby [Avila Beach, CA]

This is the first time I have ventured into doing a maternity shoot– at least one that was not of my wife. It brought me back to the moments of excitement and nervous anticipation that was to come as my wife and I waited for our son’s arrival. Photographing them allowed me to relive that magical time before our love magnified itself and multiplied ten fold. What a great gift to receive from one couple’s request of me to capture this life moment.

As the sun shone brightly above and the waves crashed at our feet, Robert & Anjali lost themselves in quiet moments of their love and the mystery of adventure that lay ahead. Robert would disappear as he focused on his baby girl and his wife who was carrying her. Anjali would transcend into a world that belongs only to a mother- the world of sheer admiration and unconditional love for a sweet baby she has yet to meet in person but knows in heart.

Robert & Anjali, thank you for reminding me of how the love of two become even stronger, more infinitely in love just by becoming three. The magical moments that lay ahead are untouchable by any other life occurrence. In the moments when sleep is distant or the moments of uninterrupted awe, may you always cherish the journey!
