Anika was from right here in Dunwoody and she’s such a doll! Her mother, Swathi, was a delight to work with as well. At first she wanted to bring Anika at eleven days old, but I explained to her that all of the newborns photo shoots are best done with the baby still under a week old. Not only do they sleep more when they’re only a few days old, but all the newborn props fit the very best at that age! In the end we compromised and brought Anika in at seven days old. She was the perfect little model, a photographer’s dream! And just to prove how extra special Anika is… her name is derived from Sanskrit and means ‘sweet-faced. Awesome!
