I have known Sonika for years. We attended the same High School and her husband was a good friend of my brother way before Sonika and I met.
Its amazing how woman open up during a session like this. We all need a shoulder to cry on or someone who is not emotionally involved like a family member or close friend to just let it all out. I’ve learnt things about this amazing woman that I never knew.
She is a mother of 3 beautiful boys and a fiery business woman.
When Sonika and I started looking at ideas for her shoot one photo stuck with us. So I decided to paint a beautiful backdrop that kept me going almost all through the night. My first ever self-painted backdrop and boy was I glad I decided to do it for her flower set. It is now my favourite backdrop in my studio.
Sonika, you are a strong, amazing wife, mother, sister and friend. Don’t let anyone ever take that sparkle from your eyes. Your words during your reveal will forever be close to my heart.
