I do believe in magic.... Dream it !!!

What camera do you use? What are your favourite lenses and what’s typically in your camera bag?

I love SONY since I was a kid. I simply feel that helps me do magic 🙂 Usually, I use F1.4/85mm, F2.8/24-70mm, F3.5/35 mm, F2.8/70-200mm, and macro (love all of them)

What is your favorite place to hold sessions and why?Where do you photograph most of your sessions? (in studio? on location?)

Most of my sessions are in studio, but I love to go outdoor as well.

What (if any) photography training, mentoring or workshops have you taken?

I took AnaBrandt classes, and still life member there. Went to Belly Baby Convention, Baby & Kid Convention, and other mentoring clasesses.

What should clients expect when working with you?

Years goes by, but my soul keeps the child in it. As a child I loved to do all artistic things that were fulfilling my heart and soul with joy. I love to paint, I paint Disney characters on my girl bedrooms walls. That feeling, when you master some beautiful and amazing results, I have with my photography sessions. In each session I add a big part of my artistic side, not just taking pictures. When parents show their emotions when they see final result of their babies portraits , there is not more satisfying thing for an artist.

You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift, breath and notice, smell and touch them , study their face and little feet, Pay attention, Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, it will be over before you know it...

Once you bring kids into your world, it's not about you anymore.....

I grew to understand that people don't always build walls to keep others out. It's done out of a necessity to protect whatever is left within....

Every day, in a hundred small ways our children ask: Do you see me? Do you hear me? Do I matter? Their behavior often reflects our response...
