Children are the hands by which we take hold of heavenHenry Ward Beecher 


We think children make the best subjects for a photograph. Catch them in their best mood and you have the best portraits - candid, cute and innocent. Maybe this is the reason why we get excited when we see old prints of ourselves as kids, because there is a memory etched in it. 


We give you child photographers (in no particular order) from all over India that will make you awww endlessly.
