The Patel Family

Wow, what a way to end 2015 with the fashionable and chic Patel family!  Little did I know at the time of their booking, but we have a distant connection that I wasn't aware of.  During the consultation, I learned Jay is a local cardiologist who had trained in Philidelphia with Dr. Chandra, who in turn had trained under my father at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota!  What a small world.  But more importantly, I learned how close this family is, from hosting relatives visiting from the UK, to caring for and honoring their Dada Ji (paternal grandfather) by surrounding him with love in these family portraits.

Bina and Jay, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your beautiful family!  It's been a pleasure to get to know each one of you.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
