My journey as a photographer started a long time ago while I still lived in Croatia...

The tragedy of losing all of my childhood photos during the war unleashed my passion for photography and set me on a path that I am still on today. Capturing fleeting moments and creating precious memories became my life’s motto. As soon as I got to the US, I pursued my education in Photography obtaining a B.A. in Photography from Webster University. Soon after I started my own business. For the last 10 years my clients have invited me into their lives to document the most special moments and for that I am immensely honored and grateful. 

If I had to choose two words to describe my style it would be HONEST and NATURAL. I only use natural light and instead of posing I guide my clients gently, often letting go to allow their story to unfold.

My personal life truly complements my professional career. I have been fortunate to be married for 12 years to the love of my life. We are parents of a beautiful 4 year old boy and we are loving every second of it. As a couple with international roots it was natural for us to choose international adoption to expand our family and we are proud US citizens with Croatian, Peruvian and Korean heritage. 

If you like what you see, send me a message and let’s create some memories.
