We contracted Irina for our first ever family photo session. We didn't know what to expect and our oldest son is autistic so we were naturally apprehensive but it went great! Irina was very supportive and adaptable with always a smile. Made a stressful time for us very enjoyable. I highly recommend Irina and we will be looking to schedule a holiday session in studio.
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!
Irina is very good at what she does. We ended up with pictures better than I ever thought we'd be able to get with a 6 month old. 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.
