My name is Kirtana Ahluwalia and I’m the owner and photographer at Golden Shutter Portraits in the San Francisco Bay area! 

My love for photography started in 2010 when I was in the UK pursuing my post graduate from University of Cambridge. However, once my son was born, my love for landscape photography was replaced by the love for human portraiture and I found myself taking photographs of my tiny human all the time. 

I started GSP in 2017 with the promise to create timeless portraits of your favorite people. As a mother, I’ve realized that the value of your child’s beautiful portrait will only grow as they age. Baby’s first year is filled with fleeting moments that can be missed at the blink of an eye! Your little one will never be this tiny and fragile again. Your first family portrait needs to be captured and shown off to the world. Your children and your family are your legacy. I can help you capture these moments today so you can enjoy the memories forever. 

I cannot wait to hear from you and look forward to working with you and your beautiful family!
