“We are looking for just as you described – nothing formally posed, just a session to capture our sweet, inquisitive little boy’s personality and our little everyday family life together. Ideally we would find a couple snaps that would work in a holiday card, but more casual than the cheesy kind 🙂 Also, it’s rare that we get photos of the three of us because my husband or I am always behind the camera, so some of the three of us will be a success.”


“We have been living in Boston for the past 6 months and returning to our home town at the end of the month. We want to have some family photos taken in the city to remember our time here. Preferably with brownstones or urban setting.”

“I’m envisioning mostly candids. We don’t have a lot of pictures of all of us, and what I’m hoping for is to capture some of the essence of how we all interact; I love that word documentary-style in this context. I’d like pictures that include most of us most of the time, as opposed to just of the kids individually (though a few of those are good too of course). By the way, we moved in the summer and love our new home”

“We live really close to Thomas Park so I figured we could do some shots in our house/deck and then outside/park as well. I’ve learned through my daughter’s short life-time that she doesn’t do well with a really staged photography session and will basically not smile and just look at you like you’re attacking her family – so I think your approach will work very well.”

 “I was thinking our home and we can always go outside to the backyard. I would love just candid shots of the kids playing together and how they are on a day to day basis. Most photographers I use do formal portraits or use props/scenes. I would just like something low key for this one. I like your ideas of getting individual pictures of the kids as well as ones of them all together. I’m sure you know how hard it is to get pictures of the kids together but I find it almost impossible to get 3 together."

My name is Surabhi, pronounced ‘Sur-bee.’ I am a laid-back, approachable Newton-based photographer specializing in candid and lifestyle family photography. My style is very clean, modern, and fun. I love capturing kids and families in a natural and memorable way. My sessions have a casual and low-key vibe. With little direction, I photograph a mix of candids and minimally posed portraits. I give you starting points, follow your lead, and let the session evolve naturally. The idea is to take beautiful pictures without treating it like a “photo shoot” and putting unnecessary pressure on the kids (and adults!) to smile or pose.

Whether you live in the city or the suburbs, my sessions can be customized based on your preferences. It doesn’t have to be a big production or anything fancy. It could take place at your home or simply be incorporated into your morning routine. It may be in your backyard or a nearby park, on a trip to the museum or even at your favorite cafe. Anything that you want documented, and highlights your family’s personality.
