Geeta + Manish Randery :: Our Family Keepsakes

We get so caught up in our day to day routines, the weeks fly by, the months come & go, and before you know it…we’re celebrating the new year again!  Only I couldn’t let that happen this year… at least not without some of our own family snaps!

Lil man Rivan was turning 8!!…(months that is, not years, LoL).  If you’re not yet a parent, just take my word for it, you’ll want to capture & document just about EVERYTHING!  Much like a wedding!  (I see that you’re just laughing AT, rather than WITH me on that one, but that’s ok…I’m proud of my corny cheese-ball narratives).  So as you can imagine, when my lil nugget was 8 months (and counting) I was appalled  (and a little sad) that we didn’t have a single decent family photo of all 3 of us.  I’ll be the first to admit, for being photographers, I’m ashamed.  We got so busy during this wedding season that we overlooked our own memories & keepsakes.  So I quickly put it on the top of my TO DO list…and voila here you have it!  FINALLY, our very own Family Keepsakes!  I couldn’t be happier with the outcome, so a HUGE thank you to Jason and Lulu for helping us make it happen!  Jason’s our dear photographer friend who shot the RAW images for us.  (With my control-freak nature, I obviously wanted to edit them myself, and Jason was gracious enough to oblige.)

Turning 3 in Style | Maya’s Princess Party

This royal princess sure knows how to ring in her Birthday. Fully equipped with her tiara, wand, princess dress, and her very own personalized dessert bar; she was all pumped to celebrate her big day!  She even personally ensured we were going to be in attendance…”Bop-Bop & Geeters, Aah you comin’ to ma pauty?” Ummm… OF COURSE WE ARE MAYADEEZ!  We wouldn’t miss our special little niece’s “pauty” for anything!  And it goes without saying, we were excited to capture every little detail of this pauty so that Miss Maya could have her very own birthday memories to look back at when she turned 16…ok maybe I’m thinking too far ahead LoL. Nonetheless, Manish (aka Bop Bop) and I had a riot hanging out with all the kiddos, friends, and family for this one.

Also, special thanks to one of my very own Besties, Shelly Mirpuri, for the Event Artistry & Design! Every little detail, especially that sassy dessert bar, was nothing short of PICTURE-ESQUE!!

Lastly, Monica (my uber talented sis-in-law) …all I can say is DEE-Lish! The food, desserts, cake, and details were brilliant…your creativity, as usual, was at its best!

Isn’t this little Poser the cutest little thing?!?!


Monica, Sachin (Manish’s sister & Brother-in-law), Soren, & Maya…the whole Princess & Knight family dressed up in birthday spirits! Now that’s how you host a Pauty!

I know, I know, but how can u resist, it’s become somewhat of a necessity…We just HAD to take our Goober-Face shot with the Birthday girl! WE LOWE YOO MAYADEEZ!
