Natasha and I connected a few months back and she said to me, “Abhi, this is something I have been planning to do for a long time and never really was able to find the time, but now I am ready.”
If you know Natasha, she has the softest voice and gentlest demeanour. She is a doctor by trade (though she can totally be a model) and usually never wears makeup. She said to me, “I would love to have portraits done but I don’t know how to pose in front of the camera,” and I said, don’t worry Natasha, that’s my job. I am glad she took me up on the offer as she literally blossomed in front of my camera.
This is how she came in the door. Isn’t she beautiful?
After we did her hair and makeup and me posing her :-
I love her attitude of gratitude. In a world when most of us are counting things which we do not posses. Natasha says, “There is so much to be Thankful for in my life. My parents will always be the wind beneath my wings and today it’s my hope that I have made them proud. My partner in wine, food, raising kids and Game of Thrones! My confidante and best buddy, Sandeep my better half for the past 13 years and counting. My pillar of strength who has stood by me through thick and thin. I love him with all my heart. I am so lucky to have two adorable munchkins .The amount of time, patience, energy needed to raise them just unbelievable but so worth it. Last but not the least my brother and in-laws who have always been so very supportive.”
She derives her strength from accepting her mistakes, amending them and moving forward. How many of us are open to doing that?
Her Philosophy in life is, “Live and Let Live. Help others, truly listen to people, be empathetic and make the person in front of you feel better. “
It was only natural that I photograph her with flowers.
Thank You, Natasha for letting me photograph you, your beauty and your essence! It has been a privledge to work with you, know you and hear your thoughts on making the world a better place one person at a time!
I loved creating these portraits with you, for you!
“The portrait for me is to capture the essence of the moment which will never come back. To capture a part of me which I never knew existed.” ~Natasha Devdas
