@smeetamahanti

Smeeta is a professional photographer and mama to an three kids and one dog—all of whom have been blessed with eyes that the camera can't get enough of. Her images have a richly saturated look to them that brings drama to everyday moments. And we love that her almost retro-feeling images don't look overly staged or depict a too-cool-to-be-real version of family life.

Who are your favorite local Insta-moms and dads?
