Portrait Photography is one of my favorite forms, it has so much potential for experimentation and the way it adds personality to a picture is just incredible. I’m glad to share some of the charmingly endearing ‘Portraits’ from the family 🙂
Beginning with the newest, dearest and cutest !
It seems like yesterday, we were blessed with ‘Aayaansh’, at that moment we never knew what we will we call him or what kind of bond he’ll share with us, we were spellbound when we first saw him and from that moment to this we have been falling in love with our little Love every single day 🙂 It’s indescribable!!
These innocent sparkling eyes is all I need to begin my day 🙂
A morning date with the longest river in Himachal running 1500 kms…
The longest river (in km) in Himachal Pradesh originates from Lake Rakshastal in Tibet, lying near Lake Mansarovar and south of Mount Kailash. The waters of the Sutlej are allocated to India under the Indus Waters Treaty between India and Pakistan, according to this treaty, India can utilize only 20 per cent of its total discharge of water.
On our recent road trip, we had this beautiful opportunity of spending sometime basking in the charm of Sutlej.
As the light began to touch Earth’s surface, the deceptive cover of fog came into light, it seemed as if the ‘Sutlej’ was asleep under the covers of fog, and the gradual rays were making an attempt to wake her up, slowly and beautifully….
Keeps flowing, continues it’s journey, what come may.
Just like Life, it goes on, just like the waves, you’ll never experience the same time again, enjoy every moment! Continue reading
The surreal peaceful charm of Sarahan will devour you as you enter the village. It’s a beautiful village, just 17 kms off the main road (from Jeori) in Himachal Pradesh. We covered Sarahan as part of our 11 days road trip to Spiti Valley.
A landscape view of the village
Sarahan is adorned by impressive Bhimkali Temple that is over 800 years old. The archaic architecture of the temple is intriguing. Take look at pretty pictures!!
Another factor that makes Sarahan so gorgeous is the Shrikand Mahadev peak. The views that surround the village from every angle will make you fall in love with Nature every hour.
The ‘Hawa-Ghar’ at Sarahan!!
It’s not a touristy spot, let me clarify that and no wonder we were the only ones at the location! We spoke to some locals there (as we mostly prefer) and found out about ‘Hawa-Ghar’. As we approached the location, we were stunned to witness how gorgeous it was.ζ♥ Felt like in the lap of Nature ♥
The super pretty trail luxuriant with greens
♥♥I captured this beautiful and timeless ‘Father-Son’ moment at Sarahan. The lovely trail luxuriant with lush greens make it all the more captivating!!! Ashish and Aayansh are love of my life ♥♥, it’s my humble attempt to pen down a parent’s emotion.

Preparing for the arrival of a new life is an ecstatic time for soon to be parents. Right from the happy news, regular follow-up checkups, medicines, preparing for the D-day and welcome of the baby into his abode for life are times to be cherished forever.
Post baby, all the equations in life change drastically including traveling. Every little thing needs to be planned around the baby to ensure his / her comfort and happiness. No parent wants to mess up even tiniest of the things!! Being a first time mom I totally know the feeling!!!
Our incessant love and zeal for travel couldn’t keep us off the roads for a very long time, so we had one memorable journey during my pregnancy. And once our little love arrived, we continued our exploration spree and baby had his very first road trip at the tender age of 3 months and has been traveling since!
We call our little bundle of joy – Aayansh (meaning a source of life).
I’m really glad to share my experiences and tips with the parents because I know first time parents are kind of apprehensive about ‘Traveling with a baby’.
The long lasting Aroma of Kashmiri Chai – ‘The Pink Tea’
It’s almost 7 in the morning, you still struggling to believe it’s the time to wake-up as you won’t give anything for the cozy warmth of the blanket on chilly winter morning in Kashmir.
A mother taking her kids to school on a boat. This is a usual sight in Srinagar, Kashmir. The houses are built on the Lake, popularly known as Houseboats. The boat is the most common medium of transport. Kashmir is one of the most revered tourist destinations in India.
You take a quick peek at the window & it’s snowing, the whole porch is covered with fresh & soft snow. Here enters the ‘Noon Chai’, the aroma of the piping hot tea gives a good reason to leave the blanket, enjoying your cuppa right besides the window witnessing snowfall is a heavenly treat & makes a perfect morning!!!
