You know you’re a Mom if….

Let us admit it, us Moms have very interesting lives. In fact, in situations when we’re not the protagonist, we may even find it wildly amusing! Those nine months of physically nurturing a new life within, also transforms you emotionally and psychologically. Humor and lifestyle blogger, Amanda Rodriguez, describes this transformation quite simply and eloquently: “Motherhood makes you do things you never thought you’d do, it makes you feel things you never thought you’d feel, and sometimes it just really blows your mind and turns you into your own mother.”

Here’s to all you superheroes without capes! Lets celebrate YOU, take care of YOU, create tangible proof that you EXIST! Rekha Photography is gifting one lucky mom a special Portrait and Care Package!

Gratitude. Introducing the Rekha Photography Referral Program!

I am so thankful for all the people who have supported me in my photography business, especially my clients who have made it possible for me to continue doing what I love.  As a small business owner, word-of-mouth is one of my most important and beneficial forms of advertisement. As a token of my appreciation, I am excited to introduce the Rekha Photography Client Referral Program!GR9


How it works:

  • Each time a client referred by you, books and completes a regular session with me, you receive a $50 credit towards your next portrait session. Credits will be tracked and recorded by Rekha Photography and each client or supporter will be notified of each new referral via email.  Please ensure that your referral has your details (name, email and phone) when booking to ensure that our system flows.
  • Wait, this gets even better!  When a new client mentions your name as the referring client, they also get a $50 credit to use towards their portrait session!
  • There is no limit to the number of referrals you can make.  (You can even accrue all your credits and get a free session for yourself!)
  • Referral Credits are not redeemable for cash and are non transferable.

The best compliment that you can give your photographer is a referral.  This shows that you are not only satisfied with the service and products which you have received, but that you enjoyed your experience enough to recommend your photographer to your friends and family!

So what are you waiting for?!  Go ahead, share the love (earn your credits)!

With much gratitude,

Rekha VargheseDSC_0093bw

Introducing … The {Fresh} 48 Newborn Sessions!

I am excited to be offering {Fresh} 48 newborn sessions!  These sessions are perfect for those who  love the idea of capturing those first precious moments, but don’t like the idea of having their labor or birth photographed. The first cuddles, first diaper change, first meeting with siblings or grandparents…unforgettable moments that will pass in the blink of an eye.

  • The {Fresh} 48 is a lifestyle session that takes place during daylight hours, within the first 48 hours of birth. It will include parents, siblings or other close family present. There will be no posing or props.
  • It can take place at the hospital, birth center or at home and will last approximately 60-90 minutes.
  • Included are 20 digital images printable to 8”x 10”, with print release.
  • 1 Facebook timeline cover.
  • You may choose to add on a custom 6”x 6” keepsake album with 10 pages, documenting those first precious moments. You can even include a letter to your newborn baby, telling them about the day they were born.

These sessions are booked in advance so that I am available within the first two days after birth, during daytime hours, as soon as you call! This means I will arrange my schedule 2 weeks prior to and after your due date, to accommodate your session.

If you are pregnant and considering a {Fresh 48} session – BOOK NOW! Please email me :

Know someone who’s pregnant or has just had a baby? Please share this with them!
