Welcome to the world, sweet John!

I become very excited when I get to photograph how life evolves. Denitsa and George’s maternity session was so much fun and I was very happy for these two people to have their firstborn. John is one of the sweetest babies I’ve seen. He’s the perfect combination of his parents’ features. I love his smile, his wise eyes and his calmness! Wishing all three of them the very best. May this exciting time be filled with lots of joyous and loving memories!

Mark’s Holiday Session

I had so much fun with the most chill baby ever – Mark, and his cool parents Emilia and Janusz. He was such a good model and seemed like he really enjoyed being placed in different baskets, especially by the fireplace. But who would mind a fireplace, right? :)

Denitsa’s Maternity Photos

I am so happy to be witnessing the growing love of this amazingly cute and affectionate couple. They are expecting their first born in December and I am honored to share their happiness with the world!
I was introduced to the beauty of Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT over the weekend and fell in love with it. I couldn’t keep this place a secret and decided to take Denitsa and George there for their maternity session.
I have to admit that George was the best assistant I have ever had. And Denitsa just lights up in his presence, she’s absolutely radiant and gorgeous!
Congratulations to the soon-to-be parents! We all are very excited to meet the new member of the family!

Lorena’s Photo Session

I had the pleasure to shoot Lorena last before I left Chicago. Because I was under a lot of pressure from the move I invited her to our building terrace. I’ve photographed Lorena before and I love working with her. She is amazingly photogenic and she’s a natural model. Just look at her – pure charm and hotness!
