Episode 12-Babies, photography and women in entrepreneurship (feat. Amrita Samant)
In my chat with Amrita, we talk about her early childhood, how she was always doing 10 things -writing, dancing, theatre and lots more, how the skills of business acumen, people handling and approachability that she built up as an HR professional have helped her in MommyshotsbyAmrita, how she transitioned from a cushy corporate job to converting her passion into a profession, how and when she FINALLY decided to take the plunge, how a professional shoots get done – the homework, on shoot day and post production, how she used photography as a medium to raise awareness about her breastmilk donation, Amrita’s strong message about saying no to baby fairness creams, how Amrita deals with creative block, Amrita’s 2 months of self-doubt where she almost shut down Mommyshots but with a hailmary got back to hustling and growing it to what it is today. To close, she shares her 2 cents for budding entrepreneurs and how anyone can and must keep a passion alive and not let it die.
