Vijay called me two weeks before his daughter Harika’s sari ceremony to photograph the day for his family. I was intrigued since I’m a latecomer to wearing a sari and only did so for the first time a few years ago for my sister’s engagement party (with much help from an aunt). What would we do without the aunties helping to keep up the traditions? For a parent that first time their daughter wears a sari is a big coming of age moment. My favorite photos of the day are of Harika’s mother, Latha, and the aunties helping to dress her for her party. I’m sure Harika probably loved watching the Bollywood-style dancers and having all her friends around her.
