helps pets in need
Every photo-session that is booked with me, helps shelter animals find a home.
As you support my work, it supports my ability to devote my time and resources to animals in need.
I provide professional photography to homeless, abandoned or rescue animals
to help them find their forever families, remotely and as soon as possible.
world for all
World for All is an NGO based in Mumbai, and they have a special place in my heart
because of the wonderful work they do to help Indie puppies and kittens find a home.
Over the years I have been a foster parent for their puppies
and photographed many young adoptable puppies and kittens for them.
Their team comprising of (but not limited to)
Taronish, Sharmee, Shahira, Swapnil, Nimisha and Saloni is all-heart.

why i do it
" What do you want to do with your life? "
A career counsellor had asked me this in 12th Grade. It was the first time I thought about it in depth and found my truth,
" I want to save India's stray dogs ".
But I didn't know how to do it then and as I still struggle to find a perfectly harmonious solution,
I learnt something along the way.
In 2013, I had rescued two Indie puppies from Security Guards who wanted to drown them.
My lifestyle was not conducive for having pets at home and I struggled to find them a home.
I circulated phone photos of them to everyone I knew, but no luck.
Over a weekend, I took photographs of them with a much better camera, for fun. That evening I showed the new photos to someone who instantly decided to adopt them. Within a week they had moved and found their forever home.
This pattern repeated many times over, and I realised the impact good photos can have on successful pet adoptions.
While it's not a solution, it's definitely a step in the right direction.
On that note, while this is a step, there is an entire journey to undertake in this direction. I'm all ears for more ways of being able to 'give back'. If you are working towards Animal Welfare and see an opportunity to collaborate, please reach out to me.
