... after browsing some of her instragram pictures, I knew I wanted to work with Irina. I am so happy with my entire experience. Irina is a sweetheart and makes you feel at ease as soon as you meet her. Her warm personality during our session made us feel as though we were catching up with an old friend. On the service side, she quickly responded to my many emails and walked my through anything I didn’t understand while placing my order. Thanks again Irina for the beautiful pictures and album.”

Irina is like an honorary member of our family. She’s been capturing incredible moments and freezing family milestone memories for us for the past 4 years. She is THE nicest, warmest, most patient to work with. Taking photos can be awkward but she’s really great at making you feel comfortable and keeping your kids at ease too! Greatest thing you’ll ever do is capture moments with your family as they grow so that you’ll have lasting images to keep the memories alive.

I cannot express enough how happy I am to have the opportunity to meet Irina and have her share her talent with my family. She brings such a relaxing presence, so you instantly feel comfortable with her through your whole session. I have had disappointing experiences with other photographers, but she bring tears of joy to me every time. She captures those precious moments of love and realism. Photos that can speak a thousand words to you. You can tell she genuinely cares and wants to give you something for a lifetime!

Irina is the most patient, natural and inspiring photographer. She captured so many amazing shots from professional head shots, pregnancy, my children and newborn special moments. She can calm any discomfort you my have being photographed and help calm the fussiest baby. What I appreciate most is the natural approach to capturing Magical Moments. Have no hesitation at choosing Irina as she will capture the magic in a shot and something you will cherish forever.
