This Xmas/ New year, I suffered a long and prolonged flu and a hamstring injury, thus intended on staying in with the twin. We called in our favorite girls to magically transform us to our party best. These two made our 2016 beautiful and there’s nobody else I’d end it with.
We decided to travel to Kasauli to my aunts place in the hills to shoot. As it turns out, I was advised not to travel and rest up. Slightly let down and disdained, I thought of ways not to give up on the last project of the year. Days later and sitting in the winter sun, the thought of re-creating the set in my house occurred and we started mentally conceptualizing the shoot.
What we needed- Different backgrounds, furniture, Xmas tree.
Who we called- Sarita Handa, Elvy homestore.
Immensely grateful to the two stores and their PR for being so quick and efficient. The backdrops are carpets/kilim’s we used as wall hangings and backdrop’s. Elvy sent us some handy and functional lamps, picnic basket and decorative items.
