As most of you know, Mik 'n Drik Photography has a very young CEO. This is our baby girl Maya, That is 1 year and 4 months old.
Like all companies, All the money we make from Weddings, Newborn sessions
to all Interior photo shoots we do, the money goes to the CEO. LOL
Maya was born in Mexico, on an island East Side of the Caribbean called Cozumel.
Her father, Oleksandr co-owner of our photography business was born and bred in Ukraine.
And me of course, Founder of Mik 'n Drik was born in South Africa.
Oleksandr and I met on the cruise ships as photographers and fell in love like that Titanic story.
But, Oleksandr just didn't died in this story, We had the opposite experience.
We got married 2 years later and had our baby girl 'Maya Oleksandrova Biezmienov Friedman' on the 29th of February 2016.
Here on the island there is a lot of mixed nationalities that are partners or married; German, French, Dutch, Cuban, South African, Ukrainian, Slovakian, Israeli, and Mexican of course.
Creating this multi nation and great environment for a baby like Maya to grow up in.
This gave us the idea to do a photo shoot dedicated to this special daughter of ours;
Displaying her roots and having a bit of fun with balloons and flags.
Here are some behind the scenes from this day:
Thank you to everyone that help make this shoot possible.
