Every time you share your story, it’s a reminder that you have lived it. We preservethat story for you in art so you legacy lasts forever.

I needed professional and branding photos done and Pooja surpassed any and all expectations I could have imagined.


Pooja is the best! She doesn’t just take your picture. She creates an experience, which starts the moment you call her for information and carries through all the way to the printed delivery of your photos. I loved every minute of my time with her and love the results!


Pooja really made the moment for me. Her eyes are keen to lighting and space and how it all comes together.. Her amazing product quality speaks for itself, however I will let you know that her customer service and professionalism was at the highest level and I am certainly planning on using her services in the future. 5 stars are not enough – Pooja is 10 out of 10!



If you’re looking for a fantastic photographer with a personal touch, Pooja is the best of the best! It’s not easy making a person feel comfortable in front of the lens, but I always love our photography sessions and leave with a smile on my face. Her energy and artistic eye make for a fun and memorable experience, plus her pic


Love the beauty and artistry she brings to every photograph. I give her my highest recommendation.


Today I had the most wonderful experience with a true professional. I took my 5 employees to have some “head shots” for our branding. In action, I experienced what differentiates a Professional Photographer from those people who “take pictures.” An artist; a conductor of motion and pose; as I watched Pooja work with my team, putting them at ease, having them relax and smile, bringing out the natural smile…it reminded me of watching a famous conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Symphony. Simply breath taking.And the results…..well all of us are very happy and pleased. So if you want professional photo results from a lovely person, and artist, make Pooja Photography your next stop. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I did our photo story shoot with her and it was amazingly fun and the pics came out beyond our expectations! She is a true artist and magician (she got me to relax in front of a camera, not my favorite thing).
She spent several hours with us before even scheduling the photo shoot getting to know us and our story and then magically captured it on film. She made the whole process fun and relaxing. And the photos! We are beyond pleased with the result and can’t recommend her highly enough.


I had an amazing experience with Pooja.
During the photo session, Pooja made me feel very comfortable. She took her time setting up different backdrops and was very thoughtful when creating a scene. Initially, I wanted photos done for business purposes but after the session, I realized I really enjoyed the session taking portraits as well. The prints came back and I am so impressed with the quality and presentation of photos. After spending hours with Pooja, she consistently demonstrates her value for high quality from taking photos, to the snacks she offers to the delivery of the photos. The USB is awesome!
Not only am I very happy with my photos, the experience I had was priceless. She is a very genuine person, who made a positive impact on my life.

The photos were so unique and awesome that we had difficulty in deciding and that too she helped us determine which pic would be best for what background. I totally recommend her to everyone and would say just sit back and see the magic happening once Pooja picks the camera.


Sunnyvale, CA
As a new mother-to-be I had a list of to-do’s that were to be done before my baby girls arrival. This included having a maternity photos done and an infant photography session lined up after Constance’s birth. I looked online at yelp reviews, asked friends for referrals, and I ended up choosing Pooja for my photographer. I couldn’t be happier with my choice. She is very professional and personable to work with. She answered all my questions and helped me chose outfits for my photographs based on my outdoor/indoor selection of photos. You can tell she is very passionate about her work, as she is very particular about details; which are important to me as well.
I don’t know how she captured the look and details like she did, but I love my photos!
If your looking for someone to be your photographer for your special day/occasion, look no further. Pooja went above and beyond our expectations! She is an amazing person to work with. Thank you Pooja for all your hard work. We love our photos!

Newborn photography
Although I was the client hiring Pooja to capture aspects of my life, in the end I was incredibly honored and grateful for her time she spent with me. Everything about Pooja’s work qualified as above and beyond. I have had three different sessions with her; maternity, newborn, and company headshots. I could write a recommendation separately on all three but in reflection although each one was such a different focus, I really appreciated the time she spent before photos were even taken. I think Pooja is able to capture someone’s soul in her pictures not only because of her technical talent but the effort she makes in getting to know who she is photographing guiding you through every detail and making you so comfortable from start to finish. It was the little things from patiently answering anxiety questions from a 8 month pregnant woman, to her heated studio and snacks for parents as she gently worked with our week old daughter, all the way to her efficiency and attentiveness when she came into my company’s office to take 7 headshots. There is no hesitation in recommending Pooja for any type of project. Her art she produced for me will be cherished beyond my lifetime.


Stockton, CA
We were referred to Pooja by the company business coach, and right from the start it was a great connection. Pooja came to meet with us, made everyone feel comfortable and assured us that we would photograph well. I am always insecure about pictures. On the day of the photo shoot, Pooja showed up with a head full of ideas and reassurances. In the end we were all pleased, plus we had a great time interacting with Pooja. She made us all feel that we were lifelong friends. Pooja continues to stay in contact with us and checks on our needs. Also, whenever we needs something extra done, she responds as quickly as she did on the very first call to her office. She is a winner and a keeper.




We used Pooja Photography to create a lasting memory of our 50th anniversary. Pooja worked very hard to learn what kind of portrait we wanted, and then she created it. She has very strong technical photographic skills.

I worked with Pooja on several different occasions and I am very impressed. She is detail-oriented, warm, kind and professional. She has a true talent and I’m glad she is able to share it with the world.

Nancee Pham (San Jose)

Pooja is such an amazing and talented photographer! She captures beautiful pictures and is so much fun to work with! Pooja knows exactly how to get the shot and what she has to do to get. Her guidance is the shoot was amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!

Sarah (San Jose)

Pooja is an incredible professional photographer. I had met a solar company owner who had a professional portrait done by Pooja. I have never seen him look so good. I figured it was time I upgrade from my selfie on LinkedIn to a corporate headshot. I am very happy I did and I love the results of having a substantially better image on my company social media sites, emails, etc. Pooja’s photo studio is very nice. It was relaxing and she did a great job making me feel comfortable. The environment and Pooja made it much easier to have some natural smiles for the photos. She is great at shooting the portrait at just the right moment. She ensures the lighting is perfect for different skin tones and does a masterful job editing the photos. While in her studio, I was amazed by her photography. From landscapes, pet photos, family portraits to my favorite…. newborn baby photos, she captures beautiful moments and memories. Honestly, the photos of the infants are adorable. I highly recommend Pooja… you’ll be glad you chose her as your local professional photographer. And, her pricing is very competitive for the quality of photos she creates… she’s truly an artist.

I met Pooja through some common Facebook group & I’m so glad I found her. She is one of those finest photographers who constantly chases high quality & standards. She is a thorough professional, extremely talented & a very pleasant personality to work with. She offers her clients a completely unique, well rounded package where they don’t have to worry about anything, all they need to do is come to her studio, sit back & relax while everything else is taken care by herself & her team of hair & makeup artists. She specializes in new born, portraits & lifestyle genres where she keeps coming up with new themes, series to encourage women to get out there & explore their inner beauty. I totally admire her for her talent, brains & skills and could tell you with 100% guarantee that if you hire her as your photographer, you couldn’t ever go wrong!

Pooja Photography one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. Thank you so much for letting me be apart of what you do so incredibly well.

Veronica DeBacco

Thank you very much for your professional photos for my hairstyle magazine. My hairstyles look amazing with your imagination. And I didn’t only get great pictures but a very interesting style as well. I love it so much.

Татьяна Россина

Pooja is an amazing photographer ! We had several professional portraits and office pictures taken and had an absolutely incredible experience. She is very patient , professional and passionate about her work ! The photographs are just amazing and we have received tons of compliments . I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an excellent photographer !

Kiran (Castro Valley)

Pooja is a very dedicated & passionate photographer, which shows in her work. She not only helped me get ready for the photo shoot in terms of suggesting what colors work well,what jewelry would look good, she even did her homework on what poses would look the best suited to my personality. This began weeks before the actual session, so I would say the services were not just bound within the hours of photoshoot but extended much more beyond that.

The environment during the session was very friendly, yet professional. Pooja made sure I was aware & comfortable with whatever was happening.

I got to be part of the “Diva series” which I didn’t know what to expect out of… But Pooja walked me through the whole process & the purpose behind it – “to make me feel special”. I did things that I had forgotten doing for myself, things as simple as taking out time to think about my own looks & shop exclusively for me. Oh boy did I feel special at the end?? I was smiling, feeling confident & very very special. When I saw the prints, Pooja had exceeded my expectations.

Thanks for everything Pooja, I look forward to many more seasons with you.

Megha, San Ramon, CA

I loved working with Pooja. She is very professional yet very friendly. She was great with my newborn. She is open to accept your ideas for kind of pictures you want and adds her artist twist to it which I loved and sure anyone would do too. The package that I purchase from her was one of the best deals on the market. We loved the pictures that we got. I highly recommend her. – Nutan , San Ramon, CA

Thank you Clickmypix photography for capturing such sweet, tender moments of our family and newborn. Your level of professionalism, passion for photography and patience exceeded our expectations. Thank you Pooja for being so warm, caring and patient during our session. We are looking forward to working with you again in the future.
The Ford’s, Hercules, CA

Pooja helped us with the photoshoot of our son and we had a great experience working with her. She is amazing with babies and had a lot of tricks to make my son comfortable and cheerful during the photoshoot. We never felt rushed and Pooja went out of her way to get the best moments captured. She accommodated all our requests and had creative ideas to get the best shots. We were also impressed with the quality of the pictures that were meticulously processed. In all, we felt Pooja was quite the professional photographer we were looking for and definitely recommend her to anyone looking to capture the precious moments of their lives.

Pranava S , Atherton, CA

This was my time to step out of my comfort zone and take time to be myself. I thank Pooja Photography for a calm, professional, and safe environment where I was not afraid to show a new side of me that I have never seen before. It was a once in a lifetime experience that I will not soon forget. And the reactions i received from family and friends were proof enough that Pooja Photography are experts in making models shine, diva style!

Seema, San Ramon, CA

Pooja is very professional. It was an awesome experience with her and I never felt like a rookie. She helped me to feel comfort during the shoot, in-turn pictures came out very well! She is very dedicated, passionate and loves what she does. Her effort is unaccountable until she gets the best shot. A make over of MoM2Model unbelievable experience. Thank you Pooja for making this diva session possible and a memorable event to cherish my whole life.

Priya, Pleasanton , CA

I was referred to Pooja for a photo shoot by a friend and we were very happy with the experience. She was very accommodating and flexible about the time and date of the photoshoot since we have 2 small kids and things can get unpredictable with them. We arrived earlier than scheduled at her studio since the kids had napped and were in a pleasant mood. Pooja captured many precious moments with them. My son is usually quiet and aloof with strangers but Pooja played around with many things to interest him and got him to pose very nicely. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Ramya , San Jose , CA

Your photography is gorgeous. You make everything come to life. Your ability to capture the right moment at the right time is awesome. The enchanting way you take pictures captures and preserves special moments for a lifetime. I would highly recommend your photography to anyone who is wanting a professional, compassionate, caring and talented photographer who can put you to ease at any given time.
