I was never excited to photograph models. I am most excited to transform and photograph those “everyday” people who might even hate being in front of the camera, because those people need it the most.

I feel like more balanced nowadays. But I was a giver and people pleaser for many years.  I still deeply feel those who are the caretakers of their family and friends, those who probably have been ignoring themselves a little. And I want to help those to feel ok to love themselves and open the doors for receiving more love and care from the universe.

I am a certified life coach and law of attraction practitioner: Love, trust, compassion are my highest values. I promise that i will take care of you and make you feel comfortable and beautiful in my space.

Prices

The price has been rising steadily since the business started for the 3 reasons below.

  1. It is time consuming to personalize every shoot for my clients and deliver the quality you see in my portfolio.
  2. There is increasing demand of my work.
  3. Growing wardrobe, props and product range provided in the studio for your experience.

However, I will always honor the price as of the time of booking and give perks to loyal customers and can schedule your shoot 6 to 12 months prior.
