Strolling the City with young fashionista

I'm very excited to tell you about the photoshoot that I had on Monday. 
Last spring I got a call from my client Julia that asked me to help with a gift for her friend's family that will come to visit NYC from Moscow. So we organized a lovely warm shooting in blossoming Central Park with Svetlana, Igor and their daughter Polina. 
This New Year's Eve I got a message from Polina in which she said that they are coming to U.S. again in few weeks. Polina wanted the new shoot to reflect the special New York City's atmosphere and also to present her street style fashion looks.

That Monday happened to be the coldest day among all the previous! But we had no choice - next day Polina and Svetlana had a flight back to Moscow. Since we started, Polina's mother was holding the winter coat ready to put it on daughter in every possible minute; I was trying to find the best spots and direct the poses as quick as possible; Polina's passion for fashion and beauty made me feel extremely inspired, no matter that in the middle of the shoot I stopped feeling my fingers :D (so we paused for a coffee-break and to change the clothes).

Though in one way it was a tourist-story, including shooting in some of the most famous locations of NYC, but we managed to put the motion and the attitude in it. 
As for me, through this shoot Polina became the "vibe" of New York, diverse and unique, somewhere epic and somewhere classy. 

I hope you'll feel our vibe too and like the photos!



2 years ago we had a beautiful decorated summer photoshoot with Dobrenko family. Serious and a little bit shy on camera 2-year-old Matthew, baby Liza who did not even know yet how to sit; soft pink and warm tones. It was such a pleasure to work with them!
This snowless December we managed to create another future memory for their family! Liza and Matthew are already little personalities - active, emotional and bright! And if you associate winter family photoshoots with a fireplace and a fluffy carpet in the studio, we decided to spend it in the park...
The sun was blinding us, right-sized fir trees did not want to show up on our way :D, but guys had the opportunity to communicate with nature, our young heroes - to run and almost fly in the air next to their wonderful parents - Zhenya and Katya ...
And those decorative elements that I had taken with me "just in case", stayed lying in the backpack replaced by the pure emotions...
