Introduction: Hello! My name is Eva. I am a photographer originally from Europe, and now based in Los Angeles. I specialize in photographing people: creative portraits, headshots, family portraits, newborn and pregnancy. I've started learning photography while in art school, about 20 years ago, and since then I have completed my degree in Photography at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and in Fine Arts at UC Irvine. I now have over 12 years experience photographing children and families and although my experience grows and my style has developed, it has, and always will remain natural – fresh – classic. Please take a look at my on-line portfolio examples or my website at I’m looking forward to meeting you! Eva

Portrait Photography

Eva is fantastic. She was professional, punctual, communicative and flexible. She was great with kids and got them excited about the pictures and let them be themselves. We didn’t feel rushed at all; she gave us plenty of time and shots until we were ready to call it quits. I highly recommend Eva for portraits.

Eva (the amazing woman behind Metta Pictures) was everything I could have wanted and much more. Not only is she a genuinely kind and comfortable person to be around and work with, she’s assertive and has a clear vision in her photography. I hired her for a combined maternity shoot and baby shower. She was on time, had everything she needed with her, and even had some valuable extras that we were able to use. There is no question in the value you’re getting with Eva and Metta Pictures. A huge added and unexpected bonus was the delivery of the final photo album in less than a week’s time. Looking forward to using Metta Pictures for all my photography needs moving forward! Thanks again, Eva!

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Eva for our family reunion pictures. We had a large group of 25 people and Eva did a fantastic job with capturing precious moments individually as well as collectively. She is very responsive, professional and easy to work with. I communicated with Eva ahead of time to give her a list of all of the photos we wanted. She was very patient and worked efficiently to get all of our photos done. We had a large group with ages from toddlers to senior citizens and our photo shoot couldn't have gone more smoothly!! I highly recommend Eva and will work with her again for our future photos!

Having our pictures taken by Eva was pure joy. Not only is she a genuinely lovely person, which put me and my family at ease. But she is patient, kind, professional, personable, responsive, punctual and really cares about what her client wants... and goes out of her way to achieve it. She was wonderful with my two toddlers - who are 3 yrs and 20 months old, and got the best out of them, even though they only have limited attention spans. She then sent the photos to me the very next day, which blew me away. So if you are looking for great family photos, done well and in record time, Eva is your photographer, plus she really does go that extra mile to make you happy. We are definitely very satisfied customers and intend to use Eva for all our future portraits as well. Thank you.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Since I'm newer to Thumbtack and currently working on expanding my client base, I offer discounted prices. Families, Maternity and Newborn: $300* per session • up to 2 hours session • individual portraits and group photos • 30 retouched, high resolution photos • digital download of ALL files to or USB drive * 10% DISCOUNT FOR THUMBTACK CLIENTS *Please note the location- if you are interested in a studio setup, my photo studio, fully equipped, is located in Pacific Palisades.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    • I dedicate some time for a preparatory conversation, which creates the opportunity to hear about the clients' expectations, to look at the examples if they wish for something very specific, and to discuss the whole process. That time is not counted as a session time. • I treat each photo session as a great privilege and an opportunity to meet another person and capturing something unique about him or her. I am open to this process, as I see it as a co-creation, the result of me being there and paying attention to all the details, and somewhat directing the flow, and the person in front of the camera, fully present and being themselves. I'm a perfectionist, and I strive to deliver the best quality and original photos, that would meet my clients highest expectations.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    BFA in Photography, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena MFA, UC Irvine. Professional short trainings with particular photographers, like Frank Ockenfels III, Joel Grimes, etc.
