About me


Fashion and lifestyle photographer/blogger in San Francisco + LA

I'm a tattooed, milk-tea-loving, California-based fashion and lifestyle photographer and blogger. My family moved to SF from Russia when I was 7 years old, so I basically consider myself a native. I know the Bay like the back of my hand, so yes, I can def suggest some places to shoot! I also regularly travel to LA and Palm Springs, so don't be afraid to reach out, SoCal.

I've been taking photos of people since freshman year of high school, and I'm pretty old now, so, you know, lots of practice. I share a home in gorgeous Glen Park with the best guy around (my husband) and our big, fluffy cat, Josephine.

My love for fashion and social media runs deep, and I'm extremely passionate about creating the best content for bloggers, brands, and companies. My promise to you, dearest blogger, is that you'll feel comfortable and relaxed in front of my lens - it's like hanging out with your bff, but you also get awesome photos. And to brands, I promise to create the most dynamic and engaging on-brand content you've ever laid your pretty little eyes on.

I also blog and enjoy collaborating with brands and PR agencies to promote products I love. My growing following is engaged and hungry for content, thanks to my photography tips, travel guides, restaurant reviews, and photos of bloggers from all over.

Message me and let's make some magic together.
