Personal portraits

Whether you are a person looking for a portrait, or a model looking to extend your portfolio, or a family looking to capture special moments of your life, or a couple looking to commemorate your anniversary, I provide the highest quality service tailored to your needs.

I am eager to offer you a unique experience to tell your story through pictures, to show what’s inside you. Try a new look, practice your actor talent or just be yourself. Let me show you your beauty!

For the best results I highly recommend to hire a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. You'll be impressed how much difference it makes.

Maternity and Newborn

Pregnancy is amazing time for a woman. And what is a better way to remember how beautiful you look than to have a photoshoot?

The best time for a pregnancy session varies. A nice round belly appears usually anywhere from 28-34 weeks.

The photoshooting is hold at your place or in a photo studio or outdoor (as you wish). More things to remember...Your Style! There are some suggestions about the clothes: button down sweaters, lingerie, boy shirts, tank tops, skirts, tight dresses, scarves, low waisted jeans (non-pregnancy ones). In addition a make-up artist and a hair stylist can help you with creating your look.

The next photo shoot, that could be on your way, is newborn photos. Yeaaay! The new family member is coming! It’s time to capture the most precious moments in her or his life.

Family and Kids

I love creative photo shoots with children. Why? Because they love to play different games. It allows me to capture real emotions of the kid. To do it more simple, I use decorations and costumes. On my photo shoots I’m trying to open personality of my characters.

During 2-3 hours of the shooting we may try different looks and then choose the most comfortable one for your kid. As a result we’ll get about 40 best pictures, then I’ll edit them in my creative manner. The price depends from the type of package you choose. Those packages differ from each other in the number of images, time of the shooting, and final products. You can choose a complete package, or we will pick up the ideal amount of art-processed photos and services for your family. I will be glad to answer any questions that you have.
