The artist behind the camera

I have three passions in life

My family

I love being a mom to my son, Kolya. And I am convinced my husband Paul is the best out there (but I’m biased, of course!).

Travel

I love to travel and immerse myself in other cultures. Seeing how the rest of the world lives, eats, and enjoys life helps broaden my tolerance, gives me a chance to practice a variety of languages, and increases my appreciation for this diverse and beautiful planet we call home.

Photography

It all started when I moved to Paris in 1999. I wanted to capture my time there: the city, my friends, and my travels throughout France and Europe.

After I got married and had Kolya, photography became even more important to me. It was a way to document every moment Paul and I had with our little boy. Also, because both our families live abroad, photography let me share Kolya’s progress with his grandparents, aunts, and uncles who couldn’t see him on a regular basis.

Soon after we moved to the U.S., I began taking photography classes as a hobby. And then my friends started asking me to take their family photos. The decision to become a professional photographer seemed a natural next step. After trying different types of photography I soon realized what I truly love and enjoy is photographing newborn babies. I decided to specialize, took more training, and 11 years and hundreds of babies later, I still I get very excited every time about meeting that new little person and being part of such of happy times in the lives of that new growing family! I have since added that beautiful, precious stage that comes before the birth, capturing glamorous images of moms-to-be during that unique period of pregnancy.

What I can do for you

This is the beginning of your family journey. I want you to be able to use these photos not only to spark the memories of your pregnancy, but for you to see the beauty in yourself creating a new life. Your maternity session will be unique, and will capture your story and personality.

You will not be left with any questions unanswered. Every step of your maternity session experience is taken care of. From the pre-consultation, the session styling and mood, as well as professional hair & make-up. You will be taken care of!
