My association with Swati as a photographer started in May 2016 when she announced in the SLC ladies group that she is having a 30-minute free Mother’s Day special foto shoot. I called her right away and set up a time to meet and since the weather was rainy she had my mother and me at her studio. She spent several hours on my mom and me with different poses both indoor and outdoor. Never had my mom experienced that one on one indulgence. Next day she called her childhood friends in her hometown, Dharwad, India and was sharing the joy she experienced. when the prints were ready Swati waived the print editing charges. When I insisted Swati to tell me the whole cost she told me “Thanks for giving me an opportunity to shoot you. I vouch for customer satisfaction more than anything!” I was touched by her humility and her generosity.
This year again in May, I requested Swati to photo shoot my mother’s milestone birthday on June 1st. She was travelling next day but accepted. Her sense of commitment is remarkable. She deeply cares for her customers in an authentic way. Again, Swati did an outstanding job in capturing the candid moments be it my mom’s agony or ecstasy, of our honored guests, cake with peacock feather and flute as mom is Lord Krishna’s devotee, delicious dishes so lovingly prepared by my extended family. She made the Celebration so memorable. My siblings who live in California though were not present felt they were a part of this event as they saw the vibrant and lively pictures. My friends who were present felt so special as Swati took pix of each family and friends with my mother.
Swati is an impeccable and indefatigable photographer! Always striving to give her best by learning and enriching herself with photography related workshops. She goes above and beyond in making the whole experience of foto shoot thrilling and delightful. She has touched my life with her unconditional love and caring. I feel blessed to have met such an amazing soul! I wish Swati, tons of success in her calling!!!
With lots of love and best wishes,
