Her profession is probably one of the most sought-after these days. In the yore, pregnancy shoots were done abroad. However, of late, the trend has caught on in India, too, and more so in Hyderabad. Shwetanjali R has made capturing the beautiful moments her profession.
Though she happens to be an electrical engineer who worked with Infosys, she chucked her corporate job once she found her true calling during her own pregnancy. Shweta says she would take loads of pictures of her kid and then started taking pictures of her friends’ children. Soon, she started taking small courses in photography, and eventually, she started attending photography walks and got all prepped up to start her own venture called Cradle Photos.
Today, Shweta is quite popular with the locals and has well-known clients like Sameera Sherief. She has also exhibited pictures at the State Art Gallery. In fact, her career began in 2014, and today she is quite a pro in her field of work.
Shweta says she was always interested in collecting memories like the geometry box she used in school, etc. However, later she realized the best way to keep memories is to have pictures. That’s when her passion and vocation began.
She is very particular about shooting newborns when they are asleep. As for toddlers, she befriends them and then goes about the shoot. However, one has to take care of feeding and sleep times, says Shweta. The photographer also provides all the props for shoots and takes responsibility for handling the children during the time.
Shweta does 15-20 photoshoots in a month, and a basic package of bump-baby comes up to Rs 15,000. One can reach her at: https://www.instagram.com/cradlephotos/
