Some photo shoots are routine, but every once in awhile we have the pleasure of getting to go outside the norm. In this case, Anjli and her family welcomed us to shoot in their home and fed us after, which is a rare treat! Anjli was preparing for her Bharatanatyam Arangetram. This is an ancient Indian dance, signifying Anjli has graduated from the art of bharatanatyam, and this means she has trained under a respected guru (teacher) for around 4 to 6 years. The dress worn is incredibly intricate and beautiful as you can see. We shot for a couple hours while she got into specific poses and expressed varying emotion. It was a great experience and her family was very gracious to cook for us and invite us into their home.
