Happy Holi – Abu Dhabi Travel Photography

Tomorrow is Holi in India. It’s also known as the festival of colours – a festival that says goodbye to winter and welcomes the all the colours and vibrancy of spring. Last year we were in India for it and I’ve been loving spending time going through the photos to try and get a little post ready for this years Holi.

Here’s just a few of the fun we had – the kids got really into the spirit of it and didn’t mind people throwing colour at them and LOVED throwing colour at themselves!! Keep scrolling down for a video and some links to more photos from out and about on the streets.

We stayed in Jaipur, which is one of my favourite parts of India and these were from the day before – out on the street buying Holi colours. Kirsty-Larmour-Holi-India-travel-photos-01Kirsty-Larmour-Holi-India-travel-photos-02We started off the day of Holi in nice clean clothing (our lovely friend Courtney from Courtneycourtney made the dresses for the girls to get trashed) white is great for showing off all those crazy colours!!!Kirsty-Larmour-Holi-India-travel-photos-03Kirsty-Larmour-Holi-India-travel-photos-04Kirsty-Larmour-Holi-India-travel-photos-06I think it’s safe to say my kids loved it!!!

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
