When I was a child, I received my first camera (a Polaroid©instamatic) and immediately set off to photograph my family and my pets. From that moment on, I was hooked and knewone day I wanted to be a photographer. I Especially enjoyed photographing animals at that time. It was 25 years later that I began to follow my passion for photography on a serious level.
I began shooting landscapes of my travels across the world and received accolades from fellow travelers and photography enthusiasts. After some encouragement, I acquired professional equipment and began photographing my Ragdoll cats for my own pleasure. I was able to capture some stunning cat photography, which I later sold on calendars and other photogifts. Over the next few years, I became one of the best show cat photographers in the world, and my work was published on many covers of international magazines such as Cat Fancy.
Gradually, I introduced portrait photography in my portfolio and started working with models. As a former ballet dancer and professional model myself, I bring my unique understanding of creating beautiful poses and body lines to my photography. Having been on the other end of the camera lens as a professional fashion model, I understand what it takes to achieve beautiful and flattering photography for any woman.
Now, with over 20 years of professional photography experience, my portfolio is rich with a broad range of subjects, with new specialties such as newborns, babies and kids, fantasy photography, families, and maternity.
Another skill I bring to my photography is in the post processing editing that creates memorable and unique portraits. I am an expert at Photoshop and can provide stunning, post photographic effects to my work, bringing out the best characteristics of my subjects, fixing tiny flaws, and providing unique artistic effects.
