…because every picture
tells a story…
Photography is my passion. I would not think of doing anything else but creating work that will be cherished for a lifetime.
Every shoot is 100% custom designed towards your needs —From wardrobe selection to professional hair and makeup, everything will be taken care of according to what suits you the best according to your unique personality and features. No one session is the same.
I want you to walk out of the studio feeling completely empowered.

I invite you to have a complimentary consultation with me (over the phone, via Skype, or in my home studio), where my aim will be to understand the purpose of getting the shoot done. We will discuss aspects like packages available, shoot location, timings, and even the kind of pictures you want.
You can talk to me about any specific style/look you wish to have for the shoot. If you feel I am the photographer for you, I’ll be happy to help you select a date for your big day!
SCHEDULING AND PREPARING.
Sessions are booked 2-3 weeks in advance depending on the availability of the dates. Once the session is booked, I will talk to you to shortlist the best options for you in terms of outfits, makeup & hair styling, poses, lighting and shoot setups.
I recommend everyone to schedule their complimentary fitting session at least a week before the shoot date. We meet in my studio with all the outfits and accessories in place. We will briefly go over some poses and lighting set-ups. The aim is to make you feel absolutely comfortable in front of the camera.
MAKEOVER AND SHOOT.
This will be in my studio or at your desired location. I will confirm your arrival time. Upon your arrival, you will be offered a welcome beverage and once you are settled, we will begin with the makeover of your choice.
You will be directed to every step of the shoot and it is my responsibility to make you feel comfortable and also like a celebrity. We will share laughs and you will have a day to remember.
SELECTION AND POST PROCESSING.
This is a 10-14 days process during which I will select the best photographs from the shoot and give them my signature retouch.
At this stage, you will hand-select the photographs that you want. What you fall in love with and wish to purchase will be entirely up to you!
About your glamour, maternity, & Branding Photographer
My name is Akanksha Agarwal and apart from being a photographer, I'm a mummy to a beautiful 5-years-old girl who is also my muse, wife to a loving husband, a good cook, spiritual seeker and a person with hundreds of questions about life. I am not my profession, my profession is a part of me.
When I decided to give up my IT career, I was not sure of taking photography as a career. It was a gradual (and well thought of) process. If you wish to know more about that, let's catch up over a 'Chai' or 'Cuppa'. :)
What is my mission as a photographer?
Sadhguru says, 'Your work is worthwhile only if it touches lives' and I live by it! I want to create portraits that are emotive and timeless, portraits that people would love and cherish for their entire life, portraits that tell a story, portraits that can in some way help you connect with your true self and allow you to see the person beyond body and mind.
I would love to photograph you and see you shine. I invite you to my humble home studio and let's create something magical - TOGETHER!
Love, Akanksha Agarwal
“I had a branding photo shoot with Akanksha and I would highly recommend. Her attention to detail is incredible, you can see that in the way she works and the amazing photos she creates.
From start to finish absolutely amazing. An email was sent before the photo shoot to find out more about my business and to ensure she captures images to reflect my brand.Extremely professional lady but also very calming.You will feel comfortable with her knowing that the end result will be fab.
Once the photos had been edited we met up to go through them and Akanksha explained how they could be used in the right way for my business.Very informative.
If you are thinking about a Branding Photo shoot do not hesitate to contact Akanksha. 100% would recommend.”
“A total pro!
I had a branding shoot with Akanksha and from start to finish I just knew I was in the best hands. From styling and wardrobe advice to easing my nerves, answering all my questions and creating a relaxed atmosphere throughout she made it effortless. The results were stunning and the feedback I’ve had for the results has been overwhelmingly positive. I felt like a star for the day. I now have a beautiful set of photographs I can be proud of to use not only on my website and social media profiles but everywhere!! A MASSIVE 5 stars from me. Thank you beautiful, talented Akanksha :)”
“I can honestly say this was a wonderful experience from start to finish, despite my worries and I usually loathe seeing pictures of me. I needn’t have worried as Akki and her makeup artist Sam Sheppard put me at ease, it was such a fun time before and during the shoot. Yesterday I finally has a “reveal” to choose my shots.
Now to put them to use! Thank you so much Akki. I would thoroughly recommend Akki’s services whether for personal branding or a “because you’re worth it” studio session!“
Do you provide hair and make-up?
All our sessions include complimentary hair and make-up by a professional artist.
How many images will you click?
We will take as many beautiful images as we can and will try to cover all the outfits and looks. We will then handpick the best images from your session and will give them our signature retouch. You can pick the ones you fall in love with during your reveal session.
What should I bring with me?
After you book us, we will schedule a 30 minutes wardrobe consultation before your shoot. This can either be done via Skype/Zoom or you can come to our studio with all your outfits.
We will pick the ones that will suit you the best for your shoot. We will also share a guide with you mentioning what we expect you to bring on your own.
When will I get to see the final images?
It takes approximately 7-10 days to finish working on your images. We will schedule your viewing session right after the shoot after checking your availability for the same.
HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?
We suggest you send us an inquiry form mentioning all the important details. We would then fix a call with you and suggest you the available dates we have. You can also choose to call us and get yourself booked in.
What if I don't like my pictures?
As we said, we do not hard-sell. We always strive to make every shoot a pleasant experience for our clients and take the images that will work for them and their business. However, if for any reason you don't like your images, we suggest you not to buy anything that you don't love. There is absolutely no obligation.
