Pooja is a creative and caring photographer who took my son’s newborn photo session. My son was a little fussy and Pooja was extremely patient and used her motherly skills to help calm him down, which also taught me a few tricks as a new mom. She is open to new ideas and suggestions and is very easy to work with. She works hard and fast to grab those special baby features that come and go so quickly. She has beautiful background ideas and really brings out the colors and beautiful facial features our children have. I am grateful for the beautiful memories she captured of my son and I highly recommend her for your family. Thanks Pooja
We feel lucky our friend recommended Pooja to us. She did a fantastic job of capturing our 6 week newborn. We applaud her skills and artistic talents.
Being one of the older newborns, our son was fussier than most subjects I would guess. Nevertheless, Pooja was patient and help us calm him before each new set. Her efforts resulted in some amazing photos we will cherish forever.
We were fortune our son wore some adorable animal-theme hats sewn by her mother. So, I would ask her if there are other personal accessories for your session.
We had concerns the baby acne would affect the photos, but she was able to remove them without changing his facial features. If you this concern too, you should ask Pooja before assuming your baby’s photo won’t turn out well.
We plan visit her again when our baby reaches other milestones.
Pooja is the ideal photographer to work with newborns. She took beautiful photos of my daughter at 12 days old; she was patient (it took an hour and a half of nursing, cuddling, etc. to get Hannah to sleep soundly enough to do the photos!), she was receptive to my ideas for certain photos, she was very helpful and hands on in settling my daughter, she was creative and provided beautiful hand made props, she was very relaxed and willing to spend as much time as necessary to get the perfect shots she had in mind, and she also did beautiful editing in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend Pooja and have already passed her name along to several friends! Thanks, Pooja!
Pooja did an amazing job of capturing our daughter’s first birthday memory thanks to the gorgeous cake smash pictures she took. Our daughter wasn’t too interested in smashing her cake, but thanks to Pooja’s patience, innovative tricks and very quick camera skills, we ended up with a great set that captured all the fun moments of the shoot. And can’t beat the super quick turnaround for the photos! We are fans of her photographic capabilities and will definitely be going back to her to capture more precious memories as our daughter grows.

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of doing a photography session with Pooja for my maternity photos. I had not done these photographs with my first pregnancy, and I wanted to make sure that we captured this special time now that we’re expecting Baby #2. Our session took place on an overcast Saturday afternoon, with a chance of rain looming overhead. I was a little concerned that the photos would not turn out as well given the unexpected change in weather, but Pooja was able to capture beautiful shots throughout our session. The colors were vibrant, and the natural lighting actually worked well despite the overcast weather. She was patient with our family during the session, which I was thankful for as my 21-month old son was in a number of photos as well. She has a very good eye for capturing artistic angles and poses; the results exceeded my expectations, and I am very happy with the results. She even managed to get some great shots of my rambunctious toddler, who is a tough subject to photograph! Her talent and skills are evident in each of the photos that she takes, and I have already recommended her to several friends. I am looking forward to my newborn’s session once he arrives- I will definitely be using her services again in the future!
From Baby J’s Mom:
We brought our newborn in for a photo shoot before he was two weeks old. Pooja’s home studio is clean and Pooja is organized with her props and accessories. She takes lots of care to set up each scene so that her images are of optimal quality. When my baby got fussy or woke up during the shoot, I was allowed to nurse him to calm him down. I’m quite shy about nursing outside the home, but Pooja and her family gave me the privacy I needed while I fed my baby. We were pleased with the images from our shoot and used several of them for our birth announcement.
We could not be happier with our session and the photos! Pooja was very responsive to our multiple email inquiries before hands, very important to us, because cake smash comes but once in a life time, we needed to be sure that it’ll be a good fit for all involved. Our son took to her right away and he had a ball! which was a huge relieve for us as you just never know how babies will react to stranger. Pooja was very accommodating to our schedule and was quick on the turn around time as well. Pooja worked with what we envision and made it come to life! We’ve done a few photo sessions and this, by far was the most fun, easiest and non-stressful one of them all.
