Introduction: Imagine your own luxury photography session where you get the star treatment of a magazine style shoot! I specialize in family, maternity, boudoir, online dating, and social media headshots and portraits. No matter how nervous you are - you will experience a professional photo shoot that is also fun and relaxed - that captures the best version of you! To ensure you get the most out of your shoot, I will advise you about what to wear and how to pose for your professional photo session. I enjoy my work because it has caused me to fall in love with light and see the world around me with fresh eyes every single day. I enjoy my work because I’m able to connect with people from different walks of life, to put them at ease in front of the camera, to capture flattering and creative portraits that tell a story.

We hired Victoria for our gender reveal photo shoot ! It is just me and my husband and I was looking for someone who value our special moments and click pictures which will be our lifetime memories! I’m so glad I found the perfect person who is just the best at what she does ! Victoria is punctual and extremely accommodating, she knows what her clients want, she does her homework with poses and articulates them so well, I saved my own but ended up using nothing coz everything she suggested turned out so pretty. She helped us pick a location since we are not local to LA, she just gave us the pictures and I’m screaming , loved every frame and every edit, I would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who listens to you and is equally engaged as you are in giving you the best ! Lots of love Vic 💖 thank you for the magical pictures 😍

I needed updated professional photos for my LinkedIn Profile. Victoria helped me to pick out outfits and chose a great location down in Santa Monica! She even gave me a map location of exactly where to park and meet her so it was super easy. She helped me with posing, gave me tips on body position, movement, and smile. One day later she sent me 55 edited photos that I was able to download high res versions of online! Victoria was super easy to work with, very responsive, and took fantastic photos. I highly recommend hiring her for your next portrait project!

Before choosing Victoria, my fiance and I shopped around for photographers. Our deciding factor were the clients photos. We couldn't be happier with her work. She was patient with our 2 yr old who just wanted to play instead of take photos. And our pictures still came out stunning and beautiful. Thank again!

Victoria is an outstanding photographer with excellent people skills. I needed portrait pictures for social median and a book cover. My problem with having pictures taken is that I usually look stiff (like a convicted criminal). Victoria helped choosing the outfits and used a street in Venice beach for background. The whole shoot was a lot of fun and the 100 pictures turned out excellent. I highly recommend her.

FAQs

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

    Pricing varies on the project and how many hours are involved.

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

    1. Get to know each other. The conversation usually leads to figuring out of what you are looking for - the style of your shoot and your goals for the final product. 2. Prep time (session location options, wardrobe options, make up and hair concept, etc.) I can help pick the outfits from your wardrobe, or even go shopping with you (for additional price). I can also invite make up artist on the set. 3. Fully guided photoshoot. Where fun and imagination begin! I always coach during your photo session to give you a diverse set of images. I guide you through poses and focus on angles that bring out your most beautiful self. 4. Social media preview. Within 24 hours I send you a link where you can view all of the images from the photo shoot. 5. Editing and post-production. The chosen images by the client are being edited within 7-10 days. For editing, I use a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started my career as a fashion stylist, collaborating with different famous photographers, makeup artists and hair stylists. My work included developing stylish concepts, searching for the right outfits, assisting on the shoots for the commercials and clothing lines, and even shopping in Milan for the clients. At that time I started to take pictures to capture the ideas that were in my mind. Having moved to LA I decided to combine my knowledge in styling and photography to deliver my clients luxury photo sessions with classy and stylish images.
