Svetlana is amazing at what she does! From the moment you walk in her studio she makes you feel comfortable and has so much energy that the photo shoot is a blast! I am happy with my amazing headshots and recommend her to anyone needing a great professional picture. Thank you, Svetlana!

Svetlana was so great from start to finish! She was quick to respond to my initial inquiry, answered all my questions, recommended a trusted hair and makeup artist, and was helpful guiding me through wardrobe choices. Svetlana even made the experience in front of the camera comfortable and light which is a challenge for me. Love the finished product and would highly recommend Svetlana!

Svetlana was amazing to work with. This was my first time using her for headshots and it won't be my last. She made the process easy and fun instead of intimidating. She was able to put me at ease and get the best possible result. If that was not enough she turned around my photo shoot pics to a finished project within a few days. I am very happy with the result and looking forward to working with her again. Next time, family photos.

I cannot simply not say enough about Svetlana and her talent. I am not comfortable in front of the camera and the minute I walked in, Svetlana put me at ease. She is professional and so much fun making me laugh the whole time. You can tell how much passion she has for her work and you can see it in the photos. I would highly recommend Svetlana to anyone looking for quality photography. I cannot thank you enough Svetlana (who by the way has been doing my headshots since 2017)

I jumped in on one of the Saturday headshot photo shoot sessions. I was nervous, but as soon as I arrived, that went away. The experience was great and the photos are awesome. THANKS! If you need a refreshed headshot.... look no further you wonโ€™t be disappointed.

I had my first ever photo shoot with Svetlana. She really helped me to relax and enjoy the process. I am an artist and wanted some photos that represent this side of me as well as some to use for more formal situations. She added color, coached me for posing, helped me select my wardrobe, and had my proofs ready that same night. It was a great experience and I love my photos.
