I am a Russian living in Berlin (Germany) with my architect husband and three kids. After having spent a decade in publishing as a literary agent, editor and translator, I turned to photography. I have been educating myself for years before I entered a Berlin photography school. Not only have I completely changed my career after my third child was born – I actually started my photo business being 6 months pregnant and among family documentary sessions I even shot a beautiful homebirth at my own 34 weeks of pregnancy. I discovered that photographing families in any constellation produces so much joy and creates so much meaning for the both sides of the process, that I fully devoted myself to it. .
