Children Photography – The Journey

I remembered back to my own childhood – there was a framed picture of my sibling and I on the wall, I remember looking at it thinking, “here I am, I belong here”.

For me, that photo was an important validation of who I was and that I was celebrated and loved. It helped my self esteem. I think of this when I photograph children with their families. I believe it is such a positive message you can give your children – photos of you together and of them on their own. I believe it’s a visual affirmation, on the wall where they see it everyday, that they are loved and celebrated by you.

This belief in the value of my work gives my work meaning, depth and I photograph from a place of love and intention that children will benefit from the images I create for them throughout their lives. I know many of these pictures will become (and have become) an iconic part of their family history.

India’s ODI skipper M S Dhoni may just have made your Friday an even better one. No, it has nothing to do with his on-field achievements this time but actually something he shared on Instagram – an adorable picture of his baby girl Ziva.

Some four hours before writing this, Daddy Dhoni posted this picture of his 10-month-old looking delightful in a pink dress and flower headband. She’s also holding a phone in her hand, as if she’s talking to someone.

Since being shared, the photo has collected over 1.6 lakh ‘likes.’ People really can’t handle how cute she looks.

“Awwweee… cuteness overloaded… lots of love… god bless her,” said one commenter. “Well, it is in her genes to be this adorable, cute little muchkin,” said another.

Even though Captain Cool Dhoni shared the picture sans a caption, the picture seems to be a part of a photoshoot conducted for the little princess about a week ago.

On November 30, mum Sakshi Dhoni shared this endearing photo of Ziva sitting on a bike. She even thanked the photographers for the awesome photoshoot.

Newborn photography is not a very familiar concept in our country. In India, a newborn is fortified with many superstitious beliefs and fears. As Arna Bhattacharya, a resident of Mumbai says, “I don’t have any superstitions as such. But I fear that the child may get hurt while they are getting him ready for the photo shoot.”  Moreover, there are mothers who do not even want to share their babies’ photographs on social media before their rice ceremony, out of fear that they may attract the evil spirits.

Delhi based kids photography studio shipraamit.com do not keep any time limit for the job. Photographer and owner of the studio Amit Chhabra believes that safety and hygiene of the child is our first priority. “So we don’t specify any time limit. We are ready when they are”, says Amit. However, if one is really lucky, one might also get a chance to click a photo when the child is awake. At those times, the sudden and erratic expressions that come over the face of the infant conjure up ‘the moment’.

Newborn photography is not just a fad of the parents; it also signifies that the society is moving towards breaking another glass ceiling. It is a way of unleashing the self from the irrational beliefs and practices that bind an expecting mother or a new-born baby. Expressing the self through photographs is another aspect of the postmodern culture, and newborn photography is a small yacht in the vast sea, sailing towards the rising sun.

With many fun-filled thematic shoots, we were instantly drawn to Shipra and Amit Chhabra’s photography. With lots of gear, a hi-tech studio, in-house printing and a creative mindset, you can’t go wrong with these two.

You can shoot at their studio, or shoot at home, whichever you are comfortable with. They offer special packages like sibling shots, hire them for a full day, and the Grow With Me package {where they capture the first year of your baby in increments}.

You can even gift a photoshoot to some parents-to-be!

If digital photography revolutionised the way wedding photography was being done, it has silently stirred a revolution in the niche kids’ photography segment which is growing at a slow, but steady pace. The memory of going to a studio to click a mandatory picture of the newborn or celebrate his first birthday has taken a fashionable turn. Those awkward poses and cheap props have been replaced by glamorous photo shoots and items like cane baskets, flowers, and swings respectively.

When Shipra Chhabra moved back to India two-and-a-half years ago, she observed how, in this segment, no one had proper infrastructure. So she, along with her husband, Amit, started Shipra & Amit Chhabra photography. “We believe in offering a homely environment, so everything is at one place in our work place. It looks more like a home,” Shipra tells Metrolife.

According to her, safety of the child is of utmost importance and hence they follow the strict policy of “no child should be left unattended”.

We work with newborns (10-12 days old) so sanitisation is of extreme importance. Not everyone is comfortable clicking a child as a lot depends on his mood,” she says, adding that they arrange pre-shoot consultations to ensure that the anxiety, children have on meeting strangers, subsides.

From pre-pregnancy to packages like “Grow with Me”– Shipra & Amit have interesting concepts to capture major milestones of the motherhood journey. And it is these concepts that determine their success rate.

We have created our own props and we work with them. But it is the concepts that define our work. It is not necessary that everything will suit your child, so we create these concepts,” says Shipra.

Neha Goyal, 24, recently became mother of a baby boy. The family decided to get a photo shoot done for Pankit and his sister, Aahana. They got in touch with Shipra and thus came out a beautiful series of images showing an angelic girl sitting and smiling on a white couch in a dream-like sequence, and that of Pankit, sleeping blissfully on a log of wood. “We wanted their memory to be something different.”

And if Shipra is to be believed, people are becoming bolder and willing to pose with their baby bumps. “People are creating memories and are ready to make it an interesting milestone of their life,” she adds.

Dramatic baby bump photo shoots are all the rage

Wrapped in yards of flowing red fabric she dives into water, gliding and swirling like a mermaid as the flashbulb explodes. What might seem like a glamorous calendar shoot is actually a mum-to-be having some serious fun with her baby bump.

Maternity shoots like these are becoming increasingly popular as young parents chase photo ideas that can be wacky, artsy and cute. There was a time when pregnancy was a fraught phase for women and baring the bump or photographing a new born were taboo. Then came the hands-on-the-belly shoot. Now, a clutch of young photographers are offering unconventional ideas that involve styling, sets and props. The results are often cutting-edge and quite breath-taking. Some images seem like avant-garde paintings, some are underwater spectacles, some vintage shots and some are playful photographs of painted bellies.

A favourite with expecting mothers are dreamy walk-in-the-wood shots dressed in Greek togas, a floral tiara around the head. “At a time when they think they’re not looking their best, this feels feminine and flattering,” says Delhi’s Shipra Chhabra.

Even dads are going in for man-ternity shots. Ritesh Sharma is one of the many enthusiastic dads ready to extend the fun he had with the pre-baby shoot. “Now that my daughter is eight months I plan to get another portfolio done. This time of my arm tattooed with Lord Shiva cradling a child where the faces are mine and my daughter’s,” he says.

These images end up in coffee table books, Facebook albums and on living room walls. Designing the look is no cakewalk. Amit Chhabra recently turned his studio into a narrow alley of Amsterdam with a flower-decked cycle that the expecting mom rode. “She lives in Netherlands but was delivering in India so she wanted to recreate that mood,” he says.

2013

Studio Launched

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

2013 has been a significant year for us. After almost 2 years of planning we launched our newborn and child photography studio in Delhi with the vision to capture the feeling, the love, and the priceless memories of little ones that last forever.

The year has also taken us to 4 continents – started with spending a few weeks in Sydney, Australia. Followed by a few trips to the US (Tampa, San Francisco, Houston, and New York), lived the summer in London and are now living life to the fullest in New Delhi.

    The Importance of Patience

    Patience is one of the most important qualities we possess as humans, yet it seems that patience is losing value in a world that has become obsessed with instant results.

    I look around me and see people driving as fast as possible, fast food restaurants with drive though windows and articles in magazines about getting more done in less time.

    Sure there is value in getting things done quickly but what about the things that can’t be done quickly? I think people are forgetting that some things require a long amount of time to be done well. In fact when I think about anything I have ever done really well the one common factor is the amount of time I put into it.

    People ask me the reason behind our success and the answer is quite simple, we spent a lot of time doing it. There was never a simple trick or a quick fix that allowed me to make huge jumps, it all comes down to the years and years I have dedicated myself to getting better.

    It requires an immense amount of patience photographing children. Each child is different and understands things differently. It requires immense patience and practice to know how to bring the best out of every child. Spending years dedicated to one thing takes a lot of patience but the reward is always worth the price you pay.

    I have a feeling that those who remember the importance of patience in the following years will have a serious advantage over those who want everything done instantly.
