Aviana's Big Day

July 09, 2012  •  4 Comments

 

            This is the amazing birthday girl I had the honor of photographing. She is such a beautiful little lady, all the way down to getting very uncomfortable when getting all the attention. (how ever she warmed up to it). She was enthusiastically celebrated and she is surely loved by so many family and friends. 

            I can't tell you what a joy it was to photograph this amazing event. I hope the photos will speak for themselves. What i can't show you is how much this family meant to me, I really needed such a loving experience. Not once did anyone make me feel like an employe or an outsider. From the time I showed up I received hugs and was welcomed. I also received many hugs through out the night. I had totally humorous moments and conversations all day. I hope you visit the gallery and see all the beautiful people and colors and joy. I think I see these amazing events for what they are because i didn't have fun family moments growing up. I like to write about it because I want it to be written down and honored and celebrated. To honor and celebrate moments as family is one of the reasons we were created. I love to have family and friend all around in loud confusing laughter. To know that Little Miss Aviana is being raised up with such love and connection.

             The ballroom was exquisite, the DJ spun a perfect mix, a clown entertained, Food was served in what seemed to be 3 different buffets. Now, I am going to say that i had planned to sneak a few bites of Indian food, as its one of my favorite cuisines that i rarely get to eat. (yes, white girl assumption Indian family I'll get Indian food, hey you come to my house I'm going to feed you steak, baked potato, corn, chocolate cake, sweet tea) They served the most beautiful and delouse chinese food. LOL I plan to ask Ashni to teach me a few dishes ( i also LOVE to cook but have never learned how to cook Indian food) Ashni this is you heads up. HA 

              I truly hope to do more work for this amazing family. A photographer couldn't ask for more beautiful subjects. A more positive and friendly environment, or a more deserving family to have it documents on canvas.

Thank you so much for the encouragement. I am living out a life long passion and dream. I have been a nurse for about 20 years as a practical career. So, I am still some what insecure and nervous. The more people i photography the more i realize I can serve people with my passion. (service was one of my favorite things about nursing, plus i'm a major biology nerd) I love photography that indicates a memory. I don't want people to see a good photograph. I want them to see the event, or the person or the sunset and then have an emotion response or a memory that takes you to that day or a similar day. I hope when Aviana sees photos of her first birthday party she will see how much she is loved, and while away at college or with her husband and children, Bobbi and Ashni will be able to look back and see their baby girl when she was indeed a baby, and rejoice at what a women she has become. Again your words mean so much to me Thank You!!!!!

Angie,

I can't stop myself saying that these are some amazing pictures I have seen, probably ever. Your talent is not only visible in the way you have clicked these pictures but also in the way you have written down your experience. :)
I wish you the best in future and wish that your talent is recognized and well appreciated by world over.

Best,
Rachit.
