Rajesh  will bring his love for photography and years of experience as a Photographer  to each session to capture unique portraits that will be treasured for a lifetime. Rajesh has been a professional photographer for 10years. He loves to create custom images and wants you  to feel at ease and to have fun while He does. Some children ham it up for the camera while others become shy and reserved. Rajesh will capture who they are – not just what they look like. The photo session will be as unique as your family. As long as you are having fun He will keep shooting. You will be surprised to find how relaxed and fun your session will be. Rajesh takes a stress-free approach to each session. Please call or email 4 weeks in advance to schedule your portrait session.

Best time to schedule a session:

Mornings works  best , but plan a time when your will be well rested and relaxed  I am always happy to take a break

Length of session:

Your session is scheduled for up to 2 to 4  hours, though it might be shorter depending on the circumstances

Location:

You name the place: your home, backyard, favorite park, lake, beach, or even an apple orchard. Keep in mind with Calcutta  weather if we schedule an outdoor shoot we may need to have an inside location as a back-up plan. If we are shooting outdoors, the best lighting falls in early morning (before 10:00 am) and late afternoon (after 3:00 pm). I shoot using both natural and studio lighting. Rajesh offers a professional studio in Calcutta  or He can bring his  studio to your home. We can have an outdoor and indoor shoot in the same portrait session,

For in home sessions.

What to wear for your portrait session

For Children youngsters and Parents:

The clothing is your choice but keep in mind that simple, timeless clothing in solid colors really photographs best. Clothing with any type of logos are distracting and take away from the essence of

the portraits, you and your family. Jewelry should be minimal and . When photographing more than

one person please think of their outfits as a whole, and keep colors uniform. If your child has a special toy, blanket or stuffed animal, feel free to bring it along.

For Maternity portrait sessions:

Black pants or long black skirt with black tank top photograph best. This type of clothing puts the accent on your beautiful belly while being complimentary to your body. Please wear under-belly pants or roll the waistband of your pants down several hours before the portrait session so you don’t have elastic marks on your skin. Pull out those jeans you wore before you were pregnant, you probably won’t be able to zip them up but it looks great in portraits with the zipper undone to show your beautiful belly.

Spouses should try to where black pants or dark jeans with a dark shirt or even go shirtless.

For Infant portrait sessions:

They always look best in bare skin with black backgrounds and I recommend that the parents wear black so that they blend into the background and let the baby be the focus of the portrait. Please try to contact Rajesh while you are still pregnant to set -up a tentative newborn session. He loves to photograph newborns under the age of 2 weeks when ever possible.

Please leave your cameras at home, you are hiring Rajesh to take your portraits and cameras other than his are not allowed during your session.

Showing up on time: Its very important to show up on time for your session. Its also helpful to have your children already dressed when you arrive. We all know clothing changes can be very stressful specially  on children, now add their photography session on top of that…we may lose their attention and happy demeanor before the session even starts.

Post Session:

A presentation gallery of your proofs from the portrait session will be available within 7 days after your session for your viewing. You will have 7 days from that time to place your order.

50% of session fee is due within 7 days of scheduling your portrait session to retain your appointment. The remainder is due at the start of the session. This fee is non-refundable, can be applied to a future session if your child is sick or if we have to reschedule.

One thing I love the most is working with little children, They teach you so many things and first of all you learn is patience and innocence.
when Amrita and Shrinidhi came up with a proposal to do a campaign for their newly designed Pearl jwellery and summer line of party wears for kids collection. I really got excited and agreed to do it asap.
while shooting the campaign all I was thinking what would have been world like withought daughters and angels ??
