Irina is a great photographer. We recently hired Irina for a winter mini-session at a nearby park. Having never seen winter photos before I wasn't sure what the options were for the background. Irina sent some photos she had taken before to confirm the look she was aiming for. 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!
