My First Eyes into the World

My Daughter Shalika Chopra

This is my new muse – my daughter ‘Shalika’ born on Sep 16th 2015. I took this shot when she was just 10 days old. Among all the shots i took that day, this is among a handful of shots where she had kept her eyes open, though not wide open, seeing straight into the camera, or atleast it seems so. It is said that newborn babies cannot see more than a couple of feet of distance. More shots of this week challenge here.

Today when she is almost three months old, she keeps her eyes wide open when i take her shots. She likes the flash of the camera, i suppose. Compared to when she was less than a month, it is a challenge now to ensure that she stays still without lot of movement so that i can click a nice shot. In the hindsight when i reflect upon, i find that i am learning lot of stuffs about baby photography, which can be quite testing at times. However best thing about shooting her now is that she gives lot of smiles when she is clicked, which makes a photographer and father like me feel enormous joy.

One thing i know for sure is that her father is going to shoot her at various stages of her growth. When she grows up, probably she will enjoy these shots and giggle looking at them. Who knows then she may wield a camera and shoot her dad!

    • I am fine thank you. I hope you are the same… Since last week there was a protest in Bermuda against some immigration law and all public transportation came to a complete stop which was really a nuisance. Kids cannot go to school, etc …

    • That’s so sad to hear about. Normal life should not get impacted coz of such protests. It’s so much of hardships on people going to work, and kids to school. Even I have seen lots of strikes and protests in India. It’s so frustrating

      We are doing good. Thanks for asking about it 🙂

    • Thanks a lot Helen. You are right. I have started organizing folders based on the occasion and date so and also identify the best ones which I need to edit or print. It’s definitely a herculean task, I understand 😉
