six months (and a casting call!)

How is this little guy at the half-year mark already? Someone recently started talking to me about how his first birthday is right around the corner, and I had to stop her mid-sentence, or else I might have dissolved into blubbering mommy tears right then and there. (Psst... make sure you read all the way to the end to learn how YOU could score a free family shoot!)

The second order of today's business is that I just put out a casting call! Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have seen the news already, but here are the details again, just in case.

Things are quiet this time of year, so I'm looking to do a few shoots in my own vision. I need 1-2 families with young children (under age 6, at least one newborn/baby <1 year preferred) to do an in-home session, preferably within 20 miles of zip 19335. Participants will receive a free 1-hour lifestyle session + 10 full-res digital files, provided you sign a model release. If you're interested, email me at parikha@parikhamehta.com with a brief description of yourself & your family, and one or two photos of your favorite spots in your home (phone shots are fine!). Deadline to submit is NEXT FRIDAY (Feb. 1), selections will be made two weeks after that, and sessions will take place by the end of March.

I can't wait to hear from you!!
