Another year of marriage is quickly coming to a close. As you think about the past few years in your relationship… Did you feel loved and deeply cared for… the way you wanted to?  But what exactly happened? Have you lost the spark? If so, then why?

We are all so busy making a living that we often forget to live. Your relationship needs more of your time and less of your money. How to balance work and love? Are you one of those who is so lost in work that you don’t even get the quality time to spend with your wife all over again? Love never gets old unless you leave it alone. Sprinkle the fragrance of love again in your life. Small efforts bring a major change.

Marriage is not only about finding a soul mate it’s about standing with your partner in every situation. Love is picking you up when other is feeling low. Love is learning to love what you love.

Trust and honesty surely are the main factors behind the success of any relationship, but there are few other elements which are essential for a long-lasting bonding.

How to feel the spark again?

1. Never try to change each other. Your differences are your strength. Accept and appreciate the differences between you and your partner.

2. Compliment your better-half. Don’t you find her beautiful in every damn situation? But have you ever told her? Tell her, she will feel awesome. Love is saving the last for your love. Love is cuddling you is the best thing.  If your partner is a good parent or a good voice of reason, tell them that.

3. Revisit your old beautiful memories together. Skip the bad part and focus on the positive memories and times you shared.

4. Do your household chores together to avoid arguments and unwanted tension. Doing this will only strengthen your relationship with your partner.

5. Listen to your spouse. Pay attention to his/her words, it’s an essential element of any long-lasting relationship.



Working out together is the key to a happy and healthy relationship. Go for a weekly walk together, it’s a way to vent your frustrations together whilst keeping your mind and body healthy.  It’s a great way to catch up on what’s going on in each other’s lives and walk away from life’s stress. The happiest couples are the one who dates, tell each other how beautiful and good they look and do fun things together to keep the spark alive.

Take care of some small things that can ensure the longevity of your union and will help you to survive the obstacles life throws your way. Work on it to make your marriage a true and beautiful journey of love.

What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

Your mother-in-law is saying so many things to you but probably with some hidden meaning. 😉 What to do? How to understand her secret words and thoughts? Handling your mother-in-law is equal to handling the most difficult woman in your life. How can you ignore your whole life seen through the prism of the mother-in-law? Better awake and understand ‘What are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law’?



PC: Axis

As a daughter-in-law, you want to make your own place in the new house and also in the heart of the family members. If these relations are additions in your life that make it happen for good. In this situation even when the women love each other, they don’t like the interference of each other in their specific zone. Mothers-in-law don’t want to feel excluded of house chores. So in order to avoid the stress of the house shares your part. Talk to each other and manage the things in a better way. As a daughter-in-law, you should address the issue peacefully.

So, what are the secret thoughts of your mother-in-law?

1. You can do it the way you like!

Why are you doing it that way? It definitely means why you are not doing it her way. But how come you can get the nature of that house in just one day. No one understands that trauma of a girl and simply put down the things on the shoulder of the newly-wed daughter-in-law and keep hoping for the excellent from her from the very first day of her wedding life.

We agree that you have to take care of certain things but why to behave in a certain way imposed by them? You should adopt what can be adopted but not all the things which will make you unhappy later. This thing can be applied in both ways, one should adopt or ignore certain things to make a better future and relationship.

2.You are the part of our family now!

It is no secret that daughters-in-law have a complicated relationship with their in-laws, especially her mother-in-law. But believe us that both of you are in the same court of fear. One has the fear of new adjustments in her life and other have the fear of losing her best son.

3.Your opinion is important.

Your mother-in-law might have asked you this but what she actually means is you have to balance the things and it’s not only about your solo opinion.

4.Everyone has to make adjustments

If your mother-in-law is saying so, it directly means anyhow you have to adjust with their family. There is no other way out. Actually, this is true, but what we believe is an adjustment is okay if that brings the positive changes otherwise this should not happen.

5.She is never at fault.

Many wives blame their mothers-in-law for their hubbies’ shortcomings. Your mother-in-law will get defensive. This all will get messy and at the end, you and your husband have to deal with your issues.

What things you should avoid when you become a mother-in-law!

1. Ask my son to put me before his wife.Once my son is married, his wife comes first. I am already emotionally preparing myself for this inevitability. I demand to be punched in the face if I dare throw a hissy fit over the fact that my son is putting his wife ahead of me or loves her more than me. He damn well better love her best, as she will be the mother of his children. This is the way of things.

2. Fold my daughter-in-law’s laundry without her permission. I understand there is something sweet and generous about helping without being asked.

3. Mediate my son’s marital disputes. Mothers-in-law don’t get to have the inside scoop on the young marriage. Ew! If you catch me trying to involve myself in my son’s arguments with his wife, give me a stiff uppercut to the jaw.

4. Rearrange my daughter-in-law’s house. Clearly, the coffee mugs should be stored in the cabinet over the coffee maker. Any idiot can see that. But it’s not my kitchen, so I don’t get to decide where the coffee mugs go. If you see me reorganizing my daughter-in-law’s kitchen, or any other room in her house, for the love of all things holy, punch me. Hard.

5. Ask my grandchildren to keep secrets from my son and daughter-in-law. Parents rule. There is no such thing as “grandma privileges,” other than the ones stipulated by the parents, who are in charge. Always. There is no wavering on this rule whatsoever. Please don’t let me piss off my daughter-in-law and lose babysitting rights over a stupid forbidden bag of candy. Stab me with a hot poker first.

6. Buy my daughter-in-law clothes only I would wear. Clothes that are clearly not my daughter-in-law’s style, but I obviously have some creepy secret desire to turn her into me, because if my son loves his wife when she dresses like me, then that must mean he also still loves me. No. Waterboard me if I ever try to pull a crazy stunt like this.

7. Think my son is perfect. Also known as: “Daughter-in-law is always wrong.” This is delusional behavior, so might as well tie me up in a straightjacket.

8. Think my daughter-in-law is perfect. This might be even worse than thinking my son is perfect because it sets the stage for bitter disappointment once the poor daughter-in-law slips up and reveals her humanity. The straightjacket will do fine for this as well.

9. Enter my daughter-in-law’s bedroom without knocking. Lots of mothers-in-law think a light knock on the door is all that is necessary before barging into a bedroom or a bathroom. WRONG.

10. Offer unsolicited advice. Please, please push me down a flight of stairs if I give my daughter-in-law unsolicited advice. 

11. Show up unannounced at my daughter-in-law place.

12. Criticize my daughter-in-law’s cooking. This includes surreptitiously dribbling hot sauce on things that don’t ordinarily require hot sauce, like spaghetti, or slyly adding salt and pepper to the soup my daughter-in-law has been slaving over all day. She cooked it how she likes it. She thinks it tastes good. She worked hard on it, and even if she doesn’t admit it, she wants to impress me. If I don’t gag that shit down with a sincere-looking grin on my face, make me walk barefoot across a pile of my grandchild’s Legos.

13. Expect my son to mediate a dispute between my daughter-in-law and myself. Just. No.

14. Behave passive aggressively. 

15. Compare me to my daughter-in-law’s parents. Perhaps I believe my son and daughter-in-law prefer spending time with her parents. Maybe they have a higher social status, more money, better education, a bigger house, or healthier family relationships. I should never ever mention these things in front of my children.

PC: Sourav

They are a hundred times more things which can simplify the complicated mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship.

  • 1. I want the best for both of you.
  • 2. You are like my daughter.
  • 3. I am so thankful to you.
  • 4. Why you are not having breakfast?
  • 5. Why are you so late today, any issues?
  • 6. Are you not feeling good?

Feel happy from inside, stop expecting much, this tip can work in favor of both of you.

PC: Rajib

A great family combines a wife, husband, kids and grandparents. Your family tree is incomplete without your loving parents. Love them because they have loved you unconditionally. A bit of adjustment is ok, let them understand you and let yourself understand them. Chance should be fair for both of you. Stay together. Share yor thoughts with us below. Keep in touch for more on relationships and marriage.

In a new relationship, a nice pinch of vulnerability does wonders too.

Why an Airbrush Makeup?

Why an Airbrush Makeup?

Why an airbrush makeup is relevant to Weddings?

Blame it on these awesome professional wedding photographers, I tell you! Airbrush makeup technology is the makeup industry’s way of keeping up with the photography technology that’s now available. HD (High Definition) video and photography can now capture details like no other. While earlier, Airbrush makeup was a movie / TV celebrity favorite for shooting, as wedding photographers shoot with such high-quality gear, they are likely to catch little flaws. 


PC: Sourav

Why an airbrush makeup is awesome? 

  1. It looks very even and gives a very natural look in comparison to foundation applied otherwise. You’ll look ‘naturally radiant’ even in your HD photos and videos. 
  2. It looks far from the typical dramatic look. Normally applied makeup usually settles and can appear in pores and wrinkles but not the same with it.
  3. You get that ‘almost nothing’ light feeling. It’s super light!
  4. It’s great if you already have good, clear skin and want that added flawlessness in your bridal or party look.
  5. If you have oily skin, it’s a great option because it’s unlikely to melt away like normal makeup that is applied otherwise. It stays but is not sticky. 🙂
  6. It’s long lasting makeup idea. It tends to stay put for 12-24 hours in a day.
  7. It’s more hygienic for your skin because there’s no direct contact with brushes, hands etc. 

Why an airbrush makeup is not so awesome? 
  1. If you have more pimples or acne, don’t choose this makeup type. It’s so sheer that it’s not suited for those with acne on their face. Those who would need high coverage foundation to hide their scars, an airbrush makeup is not a good choice for them. 
  2. An airbrush makeup is more expensive than a regular makeup. It’s better to watch on your budget too. Don’t be coaxed into opting for this if it’s out of your budget or if it’s not correct for your skin type.
  3. It’s important to make sure that it’s actually being done by an airbrush makeup artist or a makeup artist who specializes in an airbrush makeup. Different makeup artists have a different style of work so be careful while you choose or it can go horribly wrong.
  4. If you have a lot of facial hair or baby hairs, they may still be visible in an airbrush makeup.
  5.  Don’t be taken in by the trend in the city ever. Apply what suits you and your skin.



PC: Sourav
You need to pick what is right for you. If your budget/skin type doesn’t call for airbrush makeup, don’t go for it; You can look just as flawless with regular makeup as well. At the same time, if you are investing in very expensive HD photography and cinematography and have a high budget for your makeup and you have oily, non-acne scarred skin, then it’s worth investing in airbrush makeup.

Candid Photography at a Wedding

Candid Photography at a Wedding

As a girl, it is not even surprising anymore when you open your social media world to find a splatter of gaudy and amazing wedding photographs all over your news feeds. For your wedding, you also want the same! Well, you know it’s a hot trend and everyone from the hip-hop crowd of well-known celebrities to the simple girl-next-door dreams wants to have their entire wedding captured in a cool candid style. But it is not difficult to see the appeal. A candid photography brings out and beautifully encapsulate the rainbow of emotions and feelings that are seen at a wedding. Then, why not break the age-long rules by giving your wedding a ‘candid twist’? Candid photography at a wedding will help you to feel alive with your wedding memories.

Candid photography at a wedding, why?

Breaking the monotony!

See, wedding is a once in a lifetime event for most of us folks here in India and therefore you should store it like any physical memoirs of this occasion of your lifetime, then it should be a thing that you are proud to show off, not embarrassed to look at yourself in future.

Do you want to be left making an excuse when you get old when someone says, “Hey! Let’s get some dust out of those old wedding photographs huh?” You know within a year or so I will walk down the aisle and down the bitter-sweet pill of marriage too, but you should make yourself a few notes when it comes to the kind of photography that will go on at your wedding. You should be able to recognize the quintessential the photos that we are talking about here are the ones without which any Indian wedding album is incomplete.

These photos have evolved over time and are subject to change according to the new fancy poster of a hit romantic Bollywood movie for the season. The photographers go like, “Bhabhiji, bhaiya ke saath woh DDLJ waala pose kijiye na??” and now it might be “Mehndi laga ke rakhna waala pose kijiye na??” Sometimes the couple gets the reference and is quick to obey, but god forbid if they don’t. The photographer will take this as an open invitation to come and manhandle you and your spouse into the required position for their ideal click.

Apart from being made to feel like a mannequin, there are these other typical photos where the photographer unceremoniously captures everyone eating at the delectable buffet line up. Or the ones where the photographer clicks a land space of a morose seated audience, who look like they are paid to be seated.

Paying a close attention to these photography clichés will help you to make mental notes of what not to do at your wedding! There is only one collective solution that you will be able to figure out – Candid Photography at a wedding.

Candid photography at a wedding carries the potential to make your wedding look as good as a fairy tale. Stolen glances among the couple, excitement among the peers on the both bride and groom sides, satisfactory happiness among the elders and pure unadulterated chaos among the troupe of children. These are the perks that don’t end here. The crazy dance numbers by your besties add more to it. 😉

There are much more perks of opting for candid photography than the obvious advantage of having a bunch of photos that will make me look effortlessly royalty (Forever).

Don’t research through millions of ideal poses and stances through the google for your wedding or pre-wedding photo shoots instead jump for a candid photography. There are high chances that most of these you will forget by at the time of the event because come on, let’s face it, as a bride you will have enough on your plate already. Moreover, some of these stances might not actually look as good as you had thought they would.

Candid photography at a wedding saves you of all this distress – all you have to do is be your natural happy-self and enjoy getting hitched to the love of your dreams. Concluding it, we would like to say that there is a reason why candid photography at a wedding is must – Happiness is best captured, not forced out in any case. Loads of love and wishes.

Photo Props For Baby’s First Picture

Photo Props For Baby’s First Picture

A baby’s first few days in this world are full of amazement and wonder. For the first few days, the baby is slowly getting acclimatized to its environment. It is in the process of getting used to this new surrounding that it has been pushed out into. The first thing that a baby recognizes and get attached to is the mother.

The baby then slowly begins to comprehend and comes to terms with other things. This phase is a precious one. It lasts only for a few days and it is best advised to capture it in the form of beautiful pictures.

Moreover, as adorable as baby’s are on themselves, their cuteness gets exponentially magnified when they are paired up with interesting photo props. Below is a list of beautiful photo props that can be used to highlight the innocence of the baby in its first picture:

1. Blanket Burrito – 

Newly born babies are extremely susceptible to the environmental factors like temperature and humidity. Quits and blankets are used to protect them. However, given how cute babies look when they are cuddled up inside a soft fluffy blanket – I’d say that they make a perfect (not to mention safe) photo prop to opt for when it is your baby’s first picture.



2. Milk Bottle –

Among many of a new born baby’s firsts is learning to drink milk. Apart from breast feeding (which comes to a baby naturally), one of the first skills that a baby acquires is to learn to drink from a milk bottle. Initially they struggle to hold the bottle, trying to adjust it so that it doesn’t wobble. The whole process just redefines the limits if cuteness that you can take in, making it an ideal photo prop.

3. Pet Privilege – 

If you have a pet at home who is was as eagerly awaiting the arrival of the baby as you were than this is the perfect gift you can give them. Not to mention it will make for a great picture to go up on your mantle-piece. You just have to take precautions for allergies that new born babies might have due to this choice of a photo prop. Hence make sure the poses are such that the animal is a little distanced from the baby.

4. Sea Creature –

Babies are essentially just out of an environment where they were submerged in water. So the photo props you can use in this picture can be innovative while depicting your baby like a sea animal. You can use a giant sea shell shaped cushion to support your baby or place your baby among rubber sea animals and other ocean related articles (keep in mind to sanitize these).

5. Hammock Joy – 

New born babies are asleep 80 percent of the time. There are few things that are cuter than a sleeping new born baby. And babies love to be cradle and rocked to sleep. Build a cozy little hammock in your house with fluffy and colourful sheets to make a beautiful photo prop. Place your baby in it and click away with this photo prop!

Creative Baby Photo Ideas

Creative Baby Photo Ideas

Take photos of your baby that you’ll cherish forever. With these creative baby photo ideas from Flatpebble, you’ll want to get your camera or the photographer into action.

Baby photography can go two ways usually:

One 

Where the baby you are photographing is in an extremely amazing mood. Everything you plan turns out to be a success and all photographs you take are in a perfect angle.

Some creative baby photo ideas for you

Two 

Where the baby you are photographing is in an extremely irritable mood. Everything you had initially planned to do is not working out due to the frustrated parents who have been continuously trying to calm the baby and every angle you try the baby looks like it is upset with everything.

If you are a professional photographer who has organized numerous baby photo shoots in your career, you will probably be familiar with the harsh reality of how things can go bad when photographing babies. Therefore, to avoid such mishaps the only way to go is to pre-plan the shoot with the parents with loads of new creative baby photo ideas.

Given that the infant’s first portrait session is planned with baby photo ideas and prepared to go, it’s time to think about integrating several props to bump up the cute factor. These photography props for babies range in style out of your essential pleasant and innocent look, to the more sensational future child model pose. We hope that they’ll provide a springboard, if you’ll, to help further and hone your very own artistic vision. 

Angel Wings are among the best props for creative baby photo ideas because everybody knows that babies are nothing but small packages of joy were sent directly from paradise. Accentuate your small cherub’s innocence with some of the feathery angel wings. Experiment with different wing sizes and colors! Attempt creative baby photo ideas with the baby sleeping, sitting up or supported by several soft pillows to make a Sitting among the clouds look.

Sure your baby can be a small little stink weed at times, but he/she really is a small rosebud who is slowly blossoming right before your very eyes. Show off his/her ever increasing beauty with the employment of a sweet out sized flower headpiece. Throw in a grass green carpeting or blanket or transplant infant into his/her very own vessel to a cherished, one of a type shot that’s ideal for any garden loving family. 



From elaborate to typically built, a bench provides the ideal alternative to the age old prop dilemma. For infants, look for a bench those supplies ample supports as it’s likely they’ll be sitting, crawling – even resting – through the session. Keep a watch out for beautiful patterns and materials which will enhance your photo as opposed to overpower it. Baby in the Box is an idea that will never get old. It could look a bit plain in the beginning, but just a simple sturdy box or wooden crate could make for a spectacular new born baby portrait prop.

While coming up with brilliant ideas like this though, make sure you have hired the right photographer will a good background, for example like those in FlatPebble. Make sure that as you are coming up with lovely ideas you are constantly taking advice from your photographer and improvizing accordingly.

Colourful and cute wallets will surely interest children. Isn’t it cute when kids take out a ten rupee not or a coin from their pocket? Imagine how happy they would be to finally find a place to store them!

  1. Kaleidoscope

Crazy Wedding Ideas

Crazy Wedding Ideas

Can’t seem to get enough ideas for your next wedding shoot? It is quite a tricky business, wedding photography, where you have to somehow keep the creative juices running in order to make each wedding look distinct from the previous one. Each couple is unique and they deserve to be captured in frames that suit their equation with each other. Getting everyone to pose as per your style makes no sense, for that’s not who they are. Try and make your subjects comfortable enough to be themselves around your camera. The trick is to make them look good while doing whatever they always do.

Personalize It

Analyse the traits of your subject- you can end up with an adventurous bride and a shy groom or people with various personalities. Get them to bring their essence out on the camera, instead of sticking to some clichéd poses. A bride to be can be just as beautiful in her streetwear, running around with shopping bags and planning everything ferociously, with her bridesmaids. Be sure to capture the moments where the mother teaches her little girl on how to go about the proceedings of traditional customs. Or where the groom’s father is fixing his son’s ensemble.

Be “Hatke”

Taking off to some hill station for a pre-wedding shoot is too mainstream. You can instead have the couple and a few of their close family and friends to dress up lavishly and take some fun shots in the city madness. Imagine the famous Beatles photograph, on the Zebra crossing, and try recreating that with the couple and their friends crossing the road in wedding ethnic wear.

Do Some Drama

Or you can save some travel cost and use a movie theatre for some dramatic shots at the wedding. You can even gather some amazing props and recreate the Great Gatsby shot with an Indian twist. Raid the parks with some fancy balloons or have a nice rock concert with the whole group rocking in fancy wedding clothes. You can even take the party to funky bar and have everyone pull off a Godfather.If anything, it’s always fun to sneak up into a library for some mischief. Let the books rescue you from the typical outdoor shoots and indulge into some devious shots of the two. Or how about introducing some dinosaurs using Photoshop and taking the wedding drama to a whole new level. Maybe you can add in some cupids running around the whole place.

Colour Crazy

There is ample amount of makeup lying around during weddings. Get in the bridesmaids to have some fun with all them colours and creatives, maybe even have fun with the guys dressing crazy. Gather in the pets and kids and create a fun set up at the wedding with all the added cuteness, where the bride and groom can be pretend parents of a whole army.

Music Madness

Get in those musical instruments that lie around the whole place and pump up the drama in the wedding with some happening beats, the groom could be play the ‘dhol’ while the bride gang could get on to do some bhangra  in the backdrop. The ideas are endless, and all you have to do is to just determine what fits. Voila! You have a perfect wedding album and some really satisfied clients.

10 Things About Wedding Photography      

10 Things About Wedding Photography    

A wedding is all about glittering and glamourous personalities all over the place, looking their absolute best. They have such big aspirations of getting the best damn display pictures for the Facebook, where they no less than hot bod models. You’d be a genius if you instantly figures out everyone’s best angles and give them the absolute satisfaction of wedding photography- while also trying to figure out who amongst these people are actually pretty close to the bride and groom just to ensuring that their whole family gets sufficiently clicked.

To be honest, it’s not easy to be omnipresent and capture every single detail on your camera with wedding photography. Here are a couple of wedding photography hacks that you can incorporate to get the best results:

  • Advance Planning:

Analyze the amount of time it takes for you to research for a particular wedding and plan your wedding photography accordingly. Ensure that your clients give you a good enough window to strategize the whole event as per their schedule, where both the parties can understand the nitty-gritties of the whole thing.

  • Reviews:

Many a times, the couples have set their minds on certain wedding photography trends doing rounds, and wish to be clicked as per all that. As much as it is great to be trendy, it is also crucial to make sure that it fits. Make sure you have a fair idea of the location and discuss the wedding photography in advance, along with the kind of props that shall be used.

  • Friends and Family Background:

Many a times, it’s a huge bummer to realize after the whole event, that the main family members or best friends didn’t make it to the frames. Avoid those kind of mistakes in the wedding photography and make sure you’re familiar with the close ones in specific.

  • Team Spirit:

This is a common mistake that a lot of photographers tend to make, they try to run the show with minimum manpower. Avoid that kind of wedding photography where you have a really tough time coordinating with a small team and end up exhausting everyone’s creative juices. Having an assistant to help you handle the equipment won’t hurt, it makes it easy when they keep a track of all equipment, while you get to click away free-mindedly.

  • Coordination

Ensure you have someone from the couple’s side helping you coordinate their movements. Amidst all the crazy confusion, chaos and nervousness, it is natural for the bride and the groom to forget certain photoshoots scheduled. That’s when the coordinator steps in and ensures to inform you when the duo are ready to be shot- especially for the ones before the event.

  • Perfection

While it is natural to try and attain perfection in your wedding photography, it is also important to know as to when you must let go and move onto some other shot. This way, you won’t have to worry about boring anyone out by making them pose for too long, or you won’t miss any other important shots.

  • The Photographer in the Family:

It is great to have a person from the family playing around with their own camera, and there can be a lot of learning involved there, but do ensure to coordinate well with the family, in terms that particular person ruining your own shots by coming in the way too much. It can spoil your chances to actually click well and thus, impacting the quality of wedding photography.

  • Lighting:

Since lighting is the key aspect of wedding photography, be sure to coordinate a tour of the venue, well in advance and study the various lighting angles. This will save a lot of last minute chaos, where you’ll be ready with your positions sorted.

  • The Organizer

Have someone from the family to ensure that especially during family portraits, they keep a track in case someone goes missing- only to realize much later- for everyone’s disappointment.

  • Refuel

It is no doubt important to keep the pictures clicking, do make sure that you take sufficiently long breaks, while someone substitutes you, and keep yourself well fed. It can be really exhausting to handle all that equipment along with keeping your clients smiling for good pictures.
