Hindus traditionally regard the eleventh or twelfth day after birth as the most auspicious day for a naming ceremony. Happily that’s also Ziem’s favorite time to do a newborn session, so she was thrilled to meet the Une family and get to participate in this special cultural tradition.
Lucky Baby V had grandparents visiting from India and California for this happy occasion and was tired from all of the attention and stimulation, as newborns are wont to be. Our photographer-in-chief employed her patented “patience pays off” philosophy, however, so once Baby V was finally tuckered out, Ziem was able to pose the star of the show for some fabulous photos.
This session was a gift from Ziem’s good friends over at Austin Bazaar, which – insert hint here – reminds us that Ziem Photography gift sessions or gift cards are one of the most thoughtful gifts one can give a new family.
Ziem is truly grateful to have participated in such a sacred family ritual. Baby V’s future looks auspicious indeed – how could it be otherwise with those big brown eyes?
