Welcome!

I created this site to share one of my greatest passions – my love for photography. I specialize in portrait, family, wedding, and events photography.

For me, the world of photography is a world of magic. I started making black and white pictures with the simplest possible camera when I was a child. Most of the time they were randomly taken shots of trees and flowers, and occasionally of friends who happened to be nearby. During the last three years, I found myself restlessly searching for ways to capture and reveal people's essence. I'm trying to catch them being silly or smiling, pretending to be someone or just being themselves. It turned out to be a very hard, but extremely rewarding way to explore the fascinating universe of a human soul.

I've worked with Irina Danilova for many years, both in personal sessions and with my band. She is a very hard-working photographer who does her best to put you at ease during the session. She's happy to work with your own ideas or provide creative input of her own, but in either case, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of resulting images. Irina is a talented, enthusiastic professional - and she will help you reveal the best of yourself to the world!

One of the worst things for me is when someone asks me to smile in front of a camera.... So it goes without saying that I don't have a lot of pics I am proud of. Working with Ira was great. She had this way of making me feel very comfortable and while I was relaxed she captured some beautiful pics I am proud to use in a professional as well as social settings. She was very accommodating with the shooting time/location and the price was very reasonable :)

I worked with Irina a number of times over the years on various types of projects ranging from bat mitzvah, graduation, fundraisings, model shootings, theatrical events, etc. I was impressed and delighted every time on the professionalism, creativity, attention to who the customer is, prompt follow up, delivery and quality of the resulting product. Lastly but extremely importantly - it is a pleasure to work with Irina on a personal level.

I worked with Irina on many occasions. The two most memorable were the photos of my twins when they were 3. She did an amazing job with capturing the ideal moment and all the photos were lively, real, and exceptionally well done. The second time we worked together is when we had an annual family gathering and hired Irina to take some portraits.

Irina took pictures of me and my family. She was very creative, very open to suggestions, and super passionate about her work. I would recommend Irina to anyone who wishes to get more than just professional pictures - true works of art with the character and soul of the subject captured in the most unique way.

Last year we invited her to cover a family gathering for us. It was a full day event with over one hundred guests in attending. Irina did outdoor photo shoot, indoors reception, sit-down dinner and dance party in the evening. Within a few weeks after the event she showed preliminary results and then worked with us on selecting photos for our archives and helped us choose the best ones for the printed albums. Her involvement in the process was extremely helpful - she evaluated the vendors, produced first drafts, and guided us through sometimes unintuitive photo editing application. uture events and are looking forward to working with her again.

Irina is a perfect professional in the Art of photography. She brings out hidden details of people's souls. She feels differently. She sees the world through another lens. She gives people a rare opportunity of enjoying the way they look. She loves the life, she loves to love, and you can see that through her pictures. All my favorite profile pictures were taken by her professional and truly talented hands. She is modest, she is the best.

With her calm appearance Irina is very passionate when it comes to photography. She made it very easy and enjoyable for my hard-to-please teenage son. His entire Senior portraits photo shoot was fun, playful and very comfortable. I think that Irina's down-to-earth vibe was a huge factor and the result was absolutely amazing! Somehow she gets your personality and shows it in an array of many interesting angles. Furthermore, most remarkably, she can even see and show something that you are yet to find about yourself. Overall we experienced the perfect blend of professionalism and magic of photography.
