I’m a portrait photographer, family filmmaker, educator and a mom to my two lovely girls currently residing in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I am passionate about preserving beautiful family moments and I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge with other creatives, especially all things editing and color grading.
I haven’t been always doing what I love the most, - creating beautiful imagery and films preserving memories for others, sharing my knowledge with creatives through online courses, - before I realized I was a photographer and filmmaker, I had a whole different life. I graduated from Moscow State University, majoring in Finance and Economics. Right after the University I persuaded my career in a major business consulting company. My photography journey started when our second daughter was born. All I wanted was to record their firsts, their lasts, and all the fleeting moments in between that go by in flash.
As a photographer I am passionate about turning real life into fine art. I love to capture simple, yet classic, emotive portraits and create films preserving family memories and stories.
I enjoy the editing part as much as the shooting part, if not more. I truly love to be in total control of my images from start to finish. When I am not photographing, editing or raising my two young children I love writing about photography and filmmaking. It feels really good knowing that you helped someone in their craft by sharing what you have learned. Sharing with what I know about photography became a passion of mine. I also find myself in the process of always learning new things, because by sharing with everything I know I am challenged to learn new stuff.
