Baltimore County Photography Commission: Annaprashan Ceremony + Family Photo Shoot

I recently had the opportunity and honor of photographing an Annaprashan Ceremony followed by a custom family photo shoot!  An Annaprashan Ceremony is a Hindu ritual that marks a baby’s first food intake other than milk.  The feeding ceremony is often followed with a game, in which the baby is presented with a tray containing a number of objects.   The belief is that the child’s future direction and prospects in life are indicated by the object which he/she prefers to hold and play with.  In this case, the baby chose the jewel/coin representing wealth!

I greatly enjoyed working with this family — thank you Sudeep and Reena!  Everyone was very nice and welcoming!  We were fortunate to have wonderful weather and light!

Some highlights from our photography session are shown below.

Happy Friday!
