Photographer, Traveler, Cocktail Imbiber, Serial Coffee Drinker
Hi there! I’m Shilpa, a Motherhood and Family photographer based along the Jersey Shore and Brooklyn. Over the past several years, I've traveled along the coast of NJ working with fun, relaxed and laid-back families capturing portraits filled with emotion in a natural, editorial style. These beautiful images of your family are captured for the purposes of creating tangible fine art prints for your home. These photographs aren’t just for you. They're also for those that come after you. They tell the story of your family legacy. I offer a unique custom experience with the intent of creating gorgeous, meaningful portraits on digital and film all while offering you a stress-free experience. Regardless of what the milestone is - whether it's a maternity session, a newborn session, an adoption or just celebrating the joys of parenthood- this boutique custom experience is designed with creating timeless prints for your home. I pay close attention to detail and I truly believe that high quality is worth the pursuit when it comes to finding the right photographer for you. So what are you waiting for? Get in touch with me if you're looking for a stress-free photography experience!
Film is a medium that evokes qualities that create lasting works of art. Film is luxurious and has a unique subtle dreamy quality that digital cameras cannot produce. Film is light-hungry and captures light and movement in a way that is very different from digital images. The ethereal, dreamy, painterly look of film is especially stunning on portraits. I shoot with the iconic Hasselblad and carry several rolls of color and black and white film during each of my sessions. Digital cameras also serve a large role in my photography session in capturing gorgeous detailed images, as well as capturing those memories especially when there is insufficient light to shoot film. That's why I choose to shoot both film and digital cameras during my sessions. I've always believed that timeless and simplicity trumps trendy. Whether captured on digital or film, my images will always be something you will be proud to display for years to come.
WHY ARCHIVAL PRINTS?
I truly believe that one feels a stronger connection to something when it is tangible. Holding your cherished family images in your hand has a completely different feel from viewing them on a computer screen. We live in a digital age where it is easy to rely on technology to view and store our family images that we cherish. While storing them in such a manner is convenient, imagine if your computer crashed, or your thumb drive got corrupted and you lost all those meaningful family photographs. What then? That's why my clients choose me to help them create those meaningful images I capture as printed fine art so they'd be preserved forever! Give your future generations that thrill of re-discovering those old (but well preserved) prints of their family legacy. Archival prints are now more affordable than ever before.
