downingtown & chester county photographer

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

Families come in all shapes, colors, and sizes, and it’s my goal to make sure your images acknowledge and celebrate that. Your newborn and family session will not be about photographing how beautiful your clothes and home are (lovely though they are); it will be about showing how beautiful YOU are, together. Expect to look back on your images and see your most cherished connections distilled in real moments, ones you may not have even realized were happening at the time.

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.
