Another picture shows them in happier times
Another picture shows the pair enjoying a sunny day out in a local park.
On Monday, Ziana was tragically found dead alongside her mum in their flat in Hounslow, West London.
A frined said Shiwangi “doted on” her daughter and murder cops have launched an investigation and believe no one else was involved in the incident.
Shiwangi worked as an operating department practitioner for the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Last night, colleagues paid tribute to her.
In a statement, they said: “We are extremely saddened by the deaths of Shiwangi and her child.
“Our deepest condolences go to her family, friends and loved ones at this very difficult time.
“Shiwangi was a highly valued member of our team and she will be missed by her colleagues.
“As the police are currently investigating the circumstances around the deaths, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.”
We are extremely saddened by the deaths of Shiwangi and her child.”

One neighbour told The Sun that Shiwangi was “so lovely” and “seemed so happy”.
Another said she “doted on” Ziana and even bought bikes for them last week.
The neighbour said: “She was lovely. It’s so sad – I’m shocked. She’d bought bikes for her and her daughter last week.
“I just couldn’t imagine something like this happening. She seemed so happy.”
Vipul Limbachia, who runs a dry cleaners nearby, told MailOnline: “I knew it was something serious.
“I only found out this morning it was a mother apparently killing her daughter and then herself.”
It is believed Shiwangi worked at an NHS hospital outside of London.
Residents saw a police car and officers arrive at the development yesterday evening and said a woman and a young child were escorted from the building.
A 68-year-old woman, who lives in the block but did not wish to be named, said: “It is very upsetting, a woman and a two year old child. It’s very shocking.”
DCI Helen Rance, who is leading the investigation, added: “This is a tragic incident.
“We are extremely saddened by the deaths of Shiwangi, a young mother and her daughter.
“Our deepest condolences go to her family, friends and colleagues at this difficult and upsetting time.
“Officers are currently investigating the circumstances around their deaths, and enquiries continue.”
