Beautiful babies

Photography has always been a passion for me. However, never did I imagine that I would take it up as a profession some day. I am, by profession, a corporate trainer. When I was pregnant two years ago, I searched high and low for a specialized baby photographer like I have seen abroad. I could find no one, and so I decided to go ahead, wield my camera, and start taking pictures of my son before he outgrew his 'oh-so-cute' new activity.

I took a short course around the same time with Kirtan Tamrakar, and found that I truly loved capturing the innocence and smiles of childhood. Soon, Cherry Orchard Baby Photography was born, with the aim of being the one stop solution for Nepal in the genre of maternity, newborn and child photography.
