downingtown & chester county photographer

Hello + welcome! I'm Parikha Mehta, and I’m a lifestyle + freelance editorial photographer based near Downingtown & West Chester, serving the Philadelphia metro area. I work on location with newborns, families, small businesses, artists/makers, non-profits, and editorial publications.

When it comes to family and newborn sessions, my goal is to make sure your photos match your memories and who you actually are, right now, because that’s what will mean the most when your kids become grown-ups and reach back for these images. Find out more about my approach to family sessions here.

I also offer Craft Story sessions for small businesses, artists, and artisans, where we’ll concentrate on showcasing the deeply human element behind your unique products and services. Business is most definitely personal, particularly in the solo and small biz world, and that’s a good thing. Who you are is what sets you apart in your market, so that’s exactly what we’ll show your clients, customers, and audience. The structure and rate package of these sessions are completely customized to meet your specific needs - as soon as you reach out, we can start figuring out details.

To book a session, or to simply say hello, drop me a line.
