We loved this glowing, beautiful family session at the Duke Chapel and Duke Gardens in Durham, NC! We met up with the Gurumurthy family for a golden hour lifestyle session a few days after Diwali this year. Aruna told us that they haven’t had family photos taken for a while, and they were excited to them all dressed up to celebrate the festival of lights!
You might remember seeing Diya, who just turned three, when we photographed her polka dotted birthday party. We had no idea what was in store for us when we met up with this family again, though! Diya was so talkative and so excited to see everything – she played by the edge of fountains and pointed out her favorite fish in the pond at Duke Gardens. She even complimented her parents’ outfits and told them that they looked beautiful while playing with her mom’s earrings. And our hearts melted. We are so glad that she warmed up and we got to hear her exclamations of joy! The architecture of Duke Chapel combined with the Fall greenery at Duke Gardens made this the most perfect session! And the pop of colors in this family’s outfits and gorgeous sunset light certainly didn’t hurt. Thanks for spending time with us Vijay, Aruna, and Diya! We hope you enjoy these photos for years to come!
