raghu & lakshmi

These two blew me away at their maternity session. How gorgeous is this mama-to-be?! Well, mama now! Baby Rashmi has arrived!! Her parents have a LOT of love for this precious little one, and it was a true pleasure to capture it.
16_05_kastoori_02 Lakshmi has such a calm peace about her. So ready to meet her girl and take on the title of “mother”. She is also completely stunning. My jaw dropped when I saw this one. 16_05_kastoori_03 This was such a beautiful moment. They were talking about their first thoughts upon finding out the baby was a girl, and how they had been waiting for her. Ohhhh, Rashmi, I hope you adore this photo when you are older.  16_05_kastoori_04 Cloudy evenings in Nebraska tend to put on the prettiest shows. 😉16_05_kastoori_05 16_05_kastoori_06 16_05_kastoori_07 And then there’s this. Lakshmi’s mother flew all the way from India to be with her daughter’s family and meet her first granddaughter. I love that she arrived just in time (literally) to be in a few photos, along with Lakshmi’s brother. 16_05_kastoori_08 16_05_kastoori_09 16_05_kastoori_10 16_05_kastoori_11 Her name is a beautiful combination of her parents’ names. She is so special, and I cannot wait to meet her – soon! Thank you, Raghu and Lakshmi, so much for letting me in on your anticipation and excitement!16_05_kastoori_12
