I got the opportunity to photograph a beautiful family introducing their 5 month old daughter to her first solid food. The closest relatives were invited to witness her first taste of rice. Little Simrik was held by her paternal aunt during the ceremony as everyone present held a spoonful of rice to her lips and exchanged gifts. She received anklets and bracelets to keep the bad omens away. I loved my time with this family. Good natured and fun, they wouldn’t let me leave until I had celebrated with them by eating. So what could a girl do when faced with delicious looking food? (Of course I ate!) Sapana, your family is beautiful and I hope you love your photos as much as I loved taking them. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you!
