Navjot ceremony of Kaya and Cyrus
It’s always exciting to shoot something you’ve never shot before. The Navjot ceremony is the ritual through which an individual is inducted into the Zoroastrian religion and begins to wear the Sedreh and Kushti. The word ‘navjot’ is a Latinized form of the Parsi Gujarati compound of nav “new” and jote “reciter [of prayer]”, “invoker”, “sacrificer”.
The expressions of the cute little siblings, Kaya and Cyrus at their Navjot ceremony were priceless and it was a glorious day with some amazing light. The beauty of the venue added a lot of aesthetics to the pictures.
We always attempt to shoot as much as possible in natural light. It gives a viewer a natural perspective as if they are witnessing the event rather than a heavy overdose of flash and flat photos. Even when we use flash, it is to give a touch of creativity to the look of the pictures rather than just to add extra light. The outdoor portraits you will see below are backlit by the afternoon sun and front lit by flash.
Our style is a mix of portraiture and documentary/photojournalism. Years of experience in shooting these genres gets you variety and a great mix of aesthetics and storytelling.
