The birth of a motHER

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. Priorities change along with her hormones. A woman evolves from human to superhuman. And the child becomes an endless source of energy, inspiration, dedication, positivity & FAITH!

Are you a mother? Have unfulfilled dreams?

It is never too late to kick-start your life. Take your time and follow your heart.


Re-starting a career from scratch after a long pause is intimidating. But fortunately, Akansha has a very supportive & loving partner. On the day of our shoot, Vinay played like a truly equal partner. From taking care of the 3year old to respectfully giving her space to work.

When in doubt, take a step back. Evaluate what is important and enjoy life. Don’t get worked up about things, lighten up, smile more, laugh more and don’t forget the kid in you.

Furthermore lead a healthy lifestyle, which in turn leads to a more clear and sort out mind. This also applies whether you are married or not, regardless of gender.
