Born in Moldova, a small country of the former USSR, and currently living a Mediterranean lifestyle in Barcelona while capturing life on camera since 2010.
I’m a brand photographer for creatives and entrepreneurs who helps clients overcome their insecurities and boost their self-esteem to become more confident in front of the camera. Creating photographs inspired by your story and mission that give value to your whole business and make you stand out and grow.
Also, as a wedding and lifestyle photographer I strongly believe in the importance of preserving memories and moments as a part of our legacy.
I aim to create emotional, authentic storytelling images of those special moments of your life making them timeless and treasured.
It was in school when I found out my passion for photography. Since I got my first camera at the age of 14. I have been taking photos of people, nature or whatever that was beautiful around me, but at that stage never was thinking about it too seriously.
Then my dad passed away. All of a sudden, I received from my grandmother an envelope with photos of my dad I’ve never seen before. Black and white photos of him as a kid and then as a young man. It was the most strong emotional connection I’ve ever had. What made me realize the importance of photography in our lives.
Back in 2015 I finally started my photography business. Since then I’ve captured beautiful destination weddings, intimate elopements, secret proposals, lovely families and exceptional brands. Hundreds of stories of people from all over the world.
Over the past 5 years I’ve been published in Wedluxe, GreyLikes, The Fount Collective, Bridal Musings, etc
My family is my biggest supporter and they are who motivate me daily to grow as a person, as a mom, to be a better partner and a business owner.
I’m Taurus Sun and Rising Cancer, it means I appreciate nice things especially when they’re useful and meaningful. Also that I’m a people person, gentle and intuitive and I’m curious about almost everything.
I’m about yoga and meditation rather than heavy weights and running. However I’m ready for long hiking routes as I love enjoying nature.
