Hello + welcome! I'm Parikha Mehta, and I’m a freelance editorial + lifestyle portrait photographer serving the Philadelphia metro area.

When it comes to family and newborn sessions, my goal is to make sure your photos match who you actually are right now. I’m shooting mostly for your kids—specifically, for the grown-ups your kids will become, for when they’re reaching back to be reminded of the warm, fuzzy joy of what life felt like at this stage. Find out more about my approach to family sessions here.

I also offer Craft Story sessions for small businesses and artists. Here, we’ll showcase the deeply human element behind your work. Business is absolutely personal in the solo and small biz world, and that’s something to be celebrated and shown. Who you are is what sets you apart in your market, so that’s exactly what we’ll show your audience. Find more details on Craft Stories here, or just reach out so we can start talking about what you need.

I also take freelance editorial commissions - drop me a line with your assignment details, and I’ll get right back to you.
