Durga Chincholi :Documentary Photographer & Filmmaker 

I love how family films capture our fleeting time. 

Seriously. I get overwhelmed as I see the films of my own family with our son growing and me growing as a mother.


Over time I have come to know the importance of being part of my family documentary, As mums we usually end up always photographing our kids and husband and miss out being a part of it.

Preserving moments on how it felt than how it looked.

My favorite photos with my family are those depicting emotions or mundane yet beautiful everyday activities without looking into the camera with all those strained expressions. The real us in our beautiful imperfectly perfect way these are the kind of photos that I fell in love with taking of my son and love doing the same for parents like me.


I still always take some naturally posed ‘portrait’ where everyone is looking at the camera for those Instagram profiles or on Nani’s (grandmothers) request but rest of our session will be totally laid back and fun.


No awkward poses, no uneasy smiles or crazy eyes. No worries about what to do with your arm. I want you to snuggle your kids and play with them and leave the rest to me. Your lazy Sunday morning to fun picnic in a park.
