Maternity Milk Bath

New Year New Beginnings for many of us out there… Some people are expecting a Baby Boy to come to this World, others are opening an online company, in a meantime somewhere in the North Pole one man is starting a new job in a high voltage sector, some of you are making plans for a Wedding with By Niki Photography or By Niki Photography Team, myself with a New Year I got my wings back and planning to expand with photography on a new markets however the dominant target is Florida.

But let’s come back to the main subject on this post! As you probably realized, I mostly post Weddings on my website. Meaning those photographs are somehow magical to me!

I had a great honor to photograph my Dear Friend Magda and I am beyond thankful for trusting me on this one! During first phone conversation we had, I was told I can decide on what kind of maternity session it will be… it took me a while and I almost shouted out to the phone “we have to do Milk Bath!” and you know what? She looks more beautiful than ever!

Milk Bath photo shoots are my real obsession recently… one thing is sure I won’t do the same session again! Each time it must be different, different colors, flowers or whatever I decide to soak in (top secret for the moment).

Winter is a great moment to do that! It is indoors, warm, relaxing and not many people I personally know took part in such a photo adventure. And if you happen to think about unique photo session, shoot me an email to by.niki@yahoo.com

No, you don’t need a bathtub at home!

HALDI Pre-Wedding Ceremony, New Delhi, India

Pre-Wedding Haldi Ceremony in India next to few Hindu Weddings I photographed back in the U.S.A. is absolutely different ambiance, especially when it comes to decorations. However, first let me explain a little bit what is Haldi Ceremony all about and why Groom to be is covered with a yellow mixture.
The Haldi Ceremony is the one in which mixed paste of turmeric with sandalwood powder and milk or rose-water is applied to the bride and the groom’s body before their Wedding. It is done to add the glow, to make their skin shine. Its color ushers in a life of prosperity for the couple, who are starting off their new life together.
Application of the paste marks an auspicious start to a new life together with a pure heart and soul. Actually, family members told me “We make Him beautiful for a Bride!”.
This ceremony was also accompanied by traditional songs and dances at times.
Now let’s take a closer look at amazing decor work done by Desinger Events Inc.
As you see I focused myself a lot on decorations, vivid in colors and the endless quantity of fresh flowers.
Can you smell it too? 😉
You have probably noticed a pink wall with so many shoes on, which actually was the wall of a bar.
It was a Jutti Bar made with 72 pairs of Juttis. Jutti is the traditional footwear of Punjab and both families being Punjabi wanted the decor to be everything Punjabi. The Bride loved to wear juttis. That is why the decoration Team put them on the bar – not one, not two but 144 of them!
Next Day was an actual Wedding Day, however, this deserves a space in another post.
Congratulations to Hardit and Geena!
 Pre-Wedding Ceremony Location: Novotel Aerocity, New Delhi, India.

The Moody Mansion Wedding, Galveston Island, Texas

 

I think part of them knew the second they saw each other that this would happen… It must be the inexplicable feeling that is coming along with it. And we call it LOVE.

Once upon a time a few Weddings ago Trisha and Charles said their “I dos” in this beautiful historic mansion in heart of Galveston Island, Texas. After my arrival at the Moody Mansion, I took Bride’s and Groom’s portraits first my favorite part I guess, later on, I photographed as well Bridesmaids and Groomsmen. After Ceremony Trisha and Charles literally got the Wings of Happiness and danced/flew away from the aisle. Since Wedding Venue is located few steps away from the beach, guests could change uncomfortable shoes and dance in black or white flip-flops.

FLOATING ANGEL

First post in 2017 should be a kick-ass so there it is! I want something new and unique with breath of freedom. This what you see is a combination of two different photo sessions. Here huge thanks go to patient Gocha! This is a real challenge to pose under water. In open sea we have few big obstacles: salty water (eyes and nose!), sand on the bottom, once touched it may ruin photo shoot spot for a while… and salty water pushes to the top. We could not achieve such an effect in swimming pool, of course it would be easier but while you have an access to the sea with reef you just go for it! Model: Gocha, Outfit: abaya, Location: Red Sea, Saudi Arabia.

And here some great news, from now on our new temporary base is Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, still next to Houston, TX and Miami, FL 😉 Looking for a photographer in Jeddah? Just drop us a line to: by.niki@yahoo.com

I admitted that idea of doing something different is a really great thing. Marcus said it is a ‘must’ to surprise each other… it is a key for relationships. Well I could not agree more 😉 So let’s go and spread some LOVE! Location: Meadow Place, Texas. Looking for a photographer in Houston, TX, Miami, FL or Europe? We are always available.

This beautiful rural place is located in… well to be honest God’s forsaken hole if you drive via local roads from Houston… but it doesn’t change the fact that is a great spot for photography! Rehearsal dinner (a dinner one night before the Wedding) of Natalie and Thomas took place in Swinging Door, Richmond, Texas. Country style place for a country style Rehearsal Dinner, it could not be any better! My Couple did not forget about surprises during the Night. Natalie gave to Her Future Husband to be stunning album with photographs, a gift like that will definitely last a lifetime! Afterwards Couple exchange a Rehearsal Dinner Gifts, such a great emotional moment, especially after receiving a cute card with sign ‘If I was a dog I would so lick your face right now’ 😉 Also we had a chance to create ‘ghost style photographs’. One thing is sure if you are lucky enough to find a LOVE like Natalie and Thomas you do not let it go no matter what!

Why do I adore Pre-Wedding Bridal Portraits as a photographer? The truth is we will never get right amount of time during your Wedding Day for portraits. And as many of you know portraits are the most beautiful photographs of each Wedding. Here my stunning Bride Felicia chosen stunning location Chateau Polonez. Such a photo session is a prefect time to try the Dress, make some adjustments if necessary, try your dream hairstyle and make up plus not to mention you can see photographer in action. Afterwards those images very often create beautiful decoration at your Wedding Day. In some cases big canvas are hidden and uncover just after the Ceremony when everybody has already seen the Bride walking down the aisle. I had a pleasure to cover Pre-Wedding Bridal Portraits, Rehearsal Dinner and Family Shower as well. Congratulations to Felicia and Zach! Location: Houston, TX.
