The wait and arrival of Himani, a Nepalese mini goddess | Illawarra Newborn & Baby Photographer


I first met the Gurung's a few months back at their maternity shoot. These two humble beings were about to spread their love further into the world as they awaited the arrival of their mini goddess, Himani. We ventured into the forest, giggling at every turn and enjoying dad's gentle embraces....










But the story isn't over yet....

Fast forward a few months and TA-DA, beautiful Himani is here. Himani was a true mini goddess. She settled, curled, pouted and dreamt throughout the session like a true Nepalese goddess. i was humbled to learn of some Nepalese traditions after child birth and the celebration of life, and was so appreciative to have the opportunity to meet Himani's grandmother, Punam's mother, before she was to return home.

Welcome earthside Miss Himani and travel safe Hajura'āmā (grandma).
