I had the privilege of photographing Pratiba’s ValaKappu or Bangle Wearing Ceremony last Saturday, 4th July 2009 in Klang. It was a cosy and eventful evening, surrounded with close family and friends wishing nothing but love, luck and happiness to Pratiba.
I personally find being around a 7-month pregnant woman really comforting, especially when she allows me to rub her belly!
Pratiba & Prakash – Wish you both lots of luck and thanks for letting me be apart of your special day.
