I am an IT engineer and an MBA graduate from IIM Calcutta. I left my cushy corporate job of 9 years to follow my dreams. My passion for portrait photography blossomed as I became a mother to a beautiful boy. While capturing his tiny toes and fingers, I found my passion.

Photography Style

I have a weakness for Beautiful Light. And, as a natural light photographer, I only use the light that is available. That means, no flash and artificial light. Just like my lighting preference my photography style is also natural and candid.

One of my key strengths lies in connecting with people and capturing their unique stories through my lens. I love capturing the often unnoticed quiet moments and try to capture each story in a beautiful yet honest way.

I love candid smiles and lots of emotion. My favorite photos are always the true ones; the ones that make you smile when you look at them, or maybe cry a tear or two. I have exactly one rigid non negotiable rule for myself as a photographer: I don’t shoot fake smiles. Period. It is my job to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.

My Personal Story

On the personal front, I have had an interesting journey from a marketing & strategy professional to Baby, Maternity, Kids and Family Photographer. Its been a beautiful road to self discovery and finding joy and purpose through photography.

I am also a mother toΒ a cute little fighter jet and shark obsessed (for now..) monkey . And wife to a loving and extremely supportive husband. Personality wise I am a bit of a goofball and you may find me weird. But I promise you, your session would be a memorable one. In fact, I will make sure your Photo Shoot is ACTUALLY FUN !

Not only will you walk away with some great images, but also beautiful memories of a day spent with the people you LOVE MOST.
