Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Looking forward to…

Ahh…Happy Friday! It’s been a Friday like none other, pretty rough so far. But Time passes, I know that the difficulties will pass too. Right now I’m just happy that the day will be over in about 8 hours. I can just go to bed and sleep like a baby then.

All that aside, I’m super stoked about this fall. I’ll be traveling to Boston next month to shoot my very first destination wedding…wooohoooo! I’m hoping to make a trip out of it, visit Cape Cod and the surrounding areas. I’m very excited with the prospect of a mini vacation. October will be the busiest month ever! I have 4 weddings and two family shoots to cover besides my day job. I’m so looking forward to shooting weddings at the Old Sugar Mill, Grand Island Mansion and Edgewood Golf Course in south Lake Tahoe. It is going to be an awesome month!

I have also been patiently waiting for my favorite show to air back in Fall. I am talking about the very entertaining drama, Grey’s Anatomy. I am obsessed with the show, can’t get enough of Meredith and McDreamy. The last season ended brutally, I’m still sore from the finale and my heart aches to even think about George…ahhh. Now I’m counting days, eagerly waiting for September 24. As much as I want the time to slow down a little bit, I also wish that this one month goes by fast so that I can spend my Thursday nights on my comfy couch again in front of the TV. Yes, I’m in love this that show!

Here is the first promo of season six of Grey’s Anatomy.

SPOILER ALERT: Do NOT watch it if you don’t wanna know about it. I have been tempted, couldn’t refrain myself from seeing it.

Veg medley and backyard update

So our backyard landscaping has been completed, it’s been over a month actually since we are enjoying some outdoor time in our own backyard. We have got an island grill where my hubby loves to cook dinner now-a-days. Needless to say, we have been grilling a lot. Steak, burgers, vegetables, etc. Speaking of vegetables, we planted some squash, tomatoes and peppers in our planter box. We were pretty late in planting this season since the yard work was still going on. The cherry tomato and yellow squash are growing like weeds and have already produced yummy fruits. There is nothing like home grown organic vegetables. I still dream of growing the side of our yard into a mini farm…someday! So far we only have a lemon and peach tree and the a couple vegetable plants in place.

Our crape myrtles are in full bloom, so are the roses and lantanas. I am starting to like the outdoors even more, only if I could bring my office outside now

Two more weeks till the Folsom bridal show, I have a lot of work to get done before that.

Now enjoy some recent shots fresh from my garden.

Block party in the neighborhood!

This year’s 4th of July was like none other in the past. The entire neighborhood(well almost) gathered around the Kirkhill drive to celebrate America’s big day. There was meet-n-greet with the new neighbors, food, music, games, face-painting, water-fight, more food and of course, fire works! I was exhausted by the time we called it a night, but it was a day full of extreme fun!!!

Kids enjoyed an afternoon of ball games!

It was a BYOM(bring your own meat) party. Grilling started around 5:30.

That multi-layered jello was fabulous!

And then there was face painting. Kids were all stoked!

Baby Gianni was the newest edition to our neighborhood. He celebrated his very first 4th of July in style. He had two outfits to wear that day, both showed his all American spirit!

Trevor rocked it out with a fabulous firework show.

So I say that I am lucky to have such awesome neighbors. Could I have asked for any better?

  • ohana photographers: how awesome is that!!! looks like you guys had an awesome 4th!
  • Lydia: Fun pictures! Congratulations on the new website and blog! They look great!

Backyard bonanza

Last few weeks have been incredibly busy for me. All the photoshoots, editing, book designing aside, I have also been focusing a little bit on the home improvement side. Well, I wasn’t really doing much, other than thinking and stressing about what might be going wrong next! Thankfully everything has been going pretty well (fingers crossed) and I didn’t have too much to worry about.

If you didn’t know already, we purchased our first home last year(yiiipyyyy!!!). It’s a great home, but a home without a backyard. (So much for buying a brand new house!).

Jun, 11, 2009

Last year we spent all our time on painting, buying furnitures, decorating rooms and filling up the house with unneccessary junk! This year we decided to just go for the backyard to get it all done. We figured that we could wait forever, or we could just work on it now and enjoy while we can.

Two months ago we finally pulled the trigger and hired a landscape designer(H&M design – website n/a) to plan our dream backyard. He did a brilliant job in designing a backyard that we envisioned. I’m a perfectionist and very particular about certain things, I was very impressed that he was able to nail the design to my taste. For the past two weeks we have had landscapers working really hard on our back (and front) yard. The temperature was really high during the first week of work, but it has cooled down a lot since then. I am just happy that we will be able to go out this summer and enjoy the outdoors.

Here is a picture from a few days ago, when the flagstones were being delivered. It was a quick iPhone snap on our way to work.

  • ohana photographers: ooo i know the feeling! can't wait for the pics of the finished product! congrats on just goin for it nudrat!

Hellooo Summer!

Spring isn’t over yet but Summer has begun for me. All my favorite TV shows have ended. I’m not sure how my Summer will pass without Grey’s Anatomy, especially after that brutal season finale (call me crazy about the show, ’cause I am!). Tonight is the American Idol finale. To tell you the truth, I’m a bit nervous about it…I’m rooting for Kris Allen to win. Hope he makes it to the top. I’m anxious to see what LOST will bring next year. Did I ever mention that I wrote a single level computer game influenced by the TV show LOST? it was my interpretation of the next chapter of the show. More on that later, may be!

May, 20, 2009

I know I won’t be watching TV much, but things are going to keep me pretty busy here. Summer means photo shoots, weddings; I’ll be doing quite a few of those. I’ll be traveling up North between the weddings to attend weddings! This will give me opportunity to shoot more landscapes. If you have been following, you’ve already seen some fine art landscapes here; there will be more coming soon on my blog.

I will also be announcing my new Logo soon. “Impressions by Nudrat Photography” will get a face-lift

Watch the blog for more updates on that.

I’m getting ready for my first ever bridal show in Fall. I’m stoked about it! I will post all the details about the show within a month or so. If you are a local bride, be sure to check out the Folsom Bridal Show at the Lake Natoma Inn. There will be so many awesome vendors with helpful information for your wedding. Just a few years ago, J and I got married in Lake Natoma Inn. Two years ago I shot a wedding there. Now I’m thrilled to go back there and be a part of this bridal show. Stay tuned for more info on the show.

In the honor of AI finale, I’m leaving you with my fave Kris Allen’s best performance this season. I hope Kris joins my other favorite Carrie (underwood)’s league tonight! Enjoy.

  • Shovon: Hi,
    Been following your blog for a while ever since Himi recommended it :)

    Being an amateur photographer, I was curious as to what equipment you use to shoot and any post work that you do.
    Also any general tips on what you like in wedding shoots/landscapes, what is the most requested etc.

  • Impressions by Nudrat Photography: Hi Shovon, Could you send me an email to info@impressionsbynudrat.com so that I can reply to your questions. Thanks.
  • ohana photographers: intrigued by the tv show computer game!!!
