All we can say is WOW! These photos are amazing, so crisp. vivid, playful and intimate all at once! They are exactly what we were hoping for! We can't thank you enough for accommodating us and making us look so good. It was also such a pleasure to meet you and work with you! Thanks again! (So many exclamation marks!!!!) ~ Rohini Kuma
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. ~ Andrea Nilsen
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. ~ Karen Leslie
Thank you so much - these are stunning! It's exactly how you said it would be - the session felt chaotic for us but the pictures you captured make it seem like such a slow peaceful morning session :) We are thrilled with how they turned out and the lighting is amazing. I'm glad we made a last minute switch to a sunrise session! You have an amazing way of capturing real moments between families and we are so thankful to be able to work with you.
Thanks again ~ Marieke Greve
Wow! What amazing pictures! I am so happy and so impressed with the amount of photos and all the details you captured. You are so talented! There are so many great ones to choose. I really love the pictures of the grandkids with the grandparents - so precious! There are a ton to choose from! ~ Danielle Claerhout
Irina is one of the best photographers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She first did my shots for the Crave book, and my experience was so calm, fun and not at all intimidating. It was my first ever photo shoot, and I was nervous and had no idea what to expect. Not only did she capture me, post-baby and nervous, in a beautiful way, she also captured the feel of my mystery party business so uniquely that my profile really stood out in the book. Shortly after, we moved about 90 minutes away, and started looking locally for a photographer to take some of our first family pictures. The process was frustrating, and after a few bad experiences, I decided that we would make the journey with our family from then on to get the amazing quality and experience of dealing with Irina. After the birth of my second son, we loaded up the family and went to visit Irina for full family shots, and have just done it again with some Christmas updates of the boys as they grow. I can't even explain how impressed I am with Irina, not only with her incredible talent and creativity, but also with her beautiful personality. She is able to get the best out of my boys, and has captured my business and my family beautifully. She has an eye for the innocence and magic of their age, and I will come back to her for as long as possible! ~ Leigh Clements Shot In The Dark Mysteries.com
Irina's work is simply amazing!! She was great with our children - it requires a lot of patience to deal with a 2 and 4 year old!! We were so pleased with all of our pictures and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to capture their special memories. ~ Nicole Craddock
This couldn't have come at a better time! What an absolute treat. I just stole away to the office to take a break thinking that today has been one of those really long and incredibly trying days...and then I see this! It totally has brought a smile to my face and I can't wait to show everyone.
Irina, you truly do wonderful work. I thought for sure that I wasn't going to be fond of the family photos after being home for only two days and feeling sick as heck...but I think they're SO beautiful and I tear up looking at them. Thank you for stopping in and taking photos of our sweet baby girl, you continue to amaze me with your generosity and kindness, Thank you, much love ~ Memie Hagar
