A little about me
Hi my name is Sharmila Patil. I am someone who is right there in the trenches of parenthood with you. My love for photographing families and the joy they bring was born from the love of my own little one. I am an artist, a creator, a wife, a mother. Not always in that order. I am a feeler and driven by love and emotion.Forever in search of light and all things nature made. What I do is personal, so photography is not just what I do, its who I am. When I embarked on this journey I had no idea where it would take me.
It came to me at a time when I least expected it, it was like walking right into what I was created to do. All I knew is it felt like I was home. It fit me, my personality, my strength, my passion. It has me constantly changing, evolving, growing. It is my way of narrating stories one frame at a time.
I believe in the power of real emotion over the picture perfect. As a mother, I have come to understand that life is messy. I believe parenthood is incredibly challenging, and yet, one day when my little one is all grown up, I will long for these hard days. Despite all the messiness, childhood is a magical, thing something incredibly precious to be documented, internalized and passed on.
