Testimonials & Reviews

Christina

I cannot recommend Shefali enough. We’ve taken our holiday photos with her two years in a row and she’s quickly become part of our holiday routine. In addition to helping with outfit recommendations with a styling app, you can tell she is a master at her craft and just KNOWS what is going to work. My husband hates having his photos taken and always feels so awkward no matter what, but even he admits that Shefali always gets the shot and beyond. And she’s great with little ones and knows all the tricks to get them to smile. At this point, she feels like she’s become a friend (who takes amazing photos). Can’t wait to work with her again next year.

I found Shefali through Instagram and immediately fell in love with her work. My husband and I were lucky enough to book her for our maternity shoot and newborn photos. Not only is she incredibly sweet natured and makes you feel so relaxed and comfortable, but her work is something I know we will treasure for a lifetime. When I received my newborn photos, I was brought to tears, Shefali captured the love we have for our baby boy so perfectly! I cannot recommend her enough and can not wait to use her again!

Shefali did a family shoot with us at Stinson Beach. It was a dark foggy evening, we were all quite stressed and the kids were tired and freezing! Shefali went out of her way to travel to our preferred location, calm and play with the kids and get all the right shots. It was so windy and dark, we didn’t think anyone could capture good images from that shoot – but Shefali’s edited photographs were absolutely beautiful. The light and colors were just gorgeous and she caught perfect expressions on our children’s faces. The prints could easily be used as art pieces. I would highly recommend Shefali to anyone looking for a family photographer!

I instantly fell in love with Shefali’s photography style and knew I had to have her do our newborn photos. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out, we will cherish them forever! on top of that, she is super sweet, gives great direction since we had no idea what we were doing, and was very patient with our fussy baby and was even able to calm him down better than we were! 😂 highly recommend her for family photos!

Jackie

Shefali did an amazing job on my maternity photos as well as our first family photos when our daughter was 3.5 months old! She captures light so beautifully and is so much fun to work with! We have used her photos for our Christmas card and have many of them around our house/on canvases. We love Shefali and can’t wait to book a session again soon!

Gen & Ryan

I recently had the opportunity to work with Shefali and man were we in great hands! Not only am I a newbie mom, but we had no idea where to start with what “I wanted” for this shoot. Amazingly, Shefali helped us every step of the way, even down to our wardrobe. I have a 7 month old and Shefali was very kind and patient with my baby which I was so happy with. I can go on and on but to say the photos came out great, is a complete understatement. All in all, Shefali is a true and talented photographer and we thank her so much for capturing the happiness our baby has brought into our lives.

Rea & Ian

Shefali is unbelievably talented. She was able to capture our candid moments and natural sunlight in a dry grass area and create the BEST family photo. She is great with kids and very flexible. Our original photography date got rained out, and she was able to reschedule within the same week. We cannot wait for another project to book her again!

Valentina

Where do I start?! Shefali has to be one of the most talented photographers I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting with! The way she captures natural light in her photos is just incredible… She was extremely kind and professional plus she was great with my three small kids. She captured their personalities perfectly & I will forever have those beautiful memories to cherish 

If you’re looking for a family photographer, she’s the one TRUST ME!!!
