Photo can make or break the whole product.

Go beyond old headshots, stock clones and kinda okay quality Iphone pictures.

They’re not good enough to take your brand to the next level.

You need to have photos that reflect the high standard you offer your clients.

In the crowded social media world with hundreds of people who do what you do, you have a split second to hold a potential follower’s attention.

We buy from and follow those whose values we share and who we can relate to.

People don’t do business with a faceless company anymore. They want to see a real person behind it.

Reveal the spirit and the heart of your brand – YOU.

Stand out with personal brand photography. Share your stories with your audience.

Stories create an emotional visual narrative that helps your followers to connect with you and your business on personal level.

"Don't be afraid to let people in on your daily life. If you post little snippets of your life, people will love following you...It’s important for your social media to be a reflection of yourself, personality and all." -Forbes.com

"People are more likely to trust other people rather than a faceless company." - Arielle Kimbarovsky for crowdSPRING, LLC

"Your social media audience wants to know that there's a human being behind your accounts, and it's important to have a healthy mix of personal and professional content to keep people engaged." -Forbes.com

You need the expert who really gets you and your business.

You need someone who makes the effort to learn and understand your brand. It’s not just a check in/check out job.

Irina is a great photographer. She also arrived early to the site, she has an amazing eye, she captured the surrounding water and trees which made the perfect background. We met Irina near the water, we were a little early, so while we waited we taught our daughters (ages 4&7) to skip rocks. Irina met us right on time, I really enjoyed how she utilized this activity in her early shots and as we all got comfortable with one another we continued to skip rocks as Irina took photos. Our family photos turned out beautiful and playful, we’ve received many compliments including “your photographer really captured your personalities and love for each other” I would HIGHLY recommend Irina!

Irina managed to build trust prior to the session – thanks to thorough preparation. By the time I met her in person, I felt like we’d known each other for a long time. At first, I felt a bit camera-shy but then stopped noticing the camera at all! The pictures turned out to be bright and full of emotions.

Irina is very good at what she does. She really listens to what is important to you and does everything she can to make your wishes come true. She truly cares about client satisfaction. On top of her ability to capture great shots, one of her strongest qualities is communication which is so very important in the services business. From the very beginning, she was responsive and expectations were managed the entire way through. A very good way to do business and it makes her a dream to work with. The icing on the cake was her flexibility and willingness to accommodate special requests.

“People don’t buy a product, service, or idea; they buy the story that’s attached to it.” - Michael Margolis

I used Irina for photos for my office and website. She was great to work with — it was a very long day but she stuck with me the entire time until I had photos that I was really happy with . We switched locations a few times and she was completely flexible with it! She stayed with me as long as needed.

I was very excited to be able to define my personal brand and very happy with Irina’s attention to detail and with the outcome of the final product. I would recommend Irina to other entrepreneurs and have already done so. Irina was able to effectively explain the benefit of personal brand photography and how it could help me reach my goals. Thank you so much, Irina. I had a wonderful experience and am so happy I decided to do the Story Session with you. I am looking forward to getting my website updated with these images and am thankful for all your advice, help, and expertise.

It was a pleasure working with Irina! She was very professional from start to finish. She made me feel relaxed in front of the camera during the photo session. The photographs turned out to be great!
