alpharetta, roswell, johns creek, cumming | north atlanta, ga
Hi there! I am Katya and I hope you stay a while and explore my work. Chances are you are here because you live in North Atlanta, maybe even right here in Roswell or Alpharetta, or visiting relatives here, and looking for a family photographer. Well, you are in the right place! I am a professional family, maternity, newborn, elopement photographer based out of North Atlanta, in Roswell, Georgia. If you look around you will notice that I am inspired by the beauty and magic of the everyday moments that make up our lives. If you are looking for deeply meaningful portraits that speak to your family’s unique beauty, I am the photographer for you. Let me capture those moments of love and laughter that make up your imperfectly perfect life.
a little about me
I was born and raised in Ukraine, and Russian is my first language. I have a Bachelors of Arts in English language and literature and I studied German and French in college. I moved to Sonoma County (San Francisco Bay Area) when I was 20, and consider it my second home to this day. Over the past thirteen years I have worked in graphic design and marketing and have been self employed for over 10 years now. When my daughter was born in 2014, I started pursuing photography as a way to document those every day fleeting moments of our new family life and in March 2016 I decided to take a plunge and start my own photography business.
I have been married to my husband for 7 years and we have an amazingly sweet and beautiful daughter together. We live in Roswell with our miniature dashchund Bella and love everything about this area. I am a natural birthing, attachment parenting, extended breastfeeding, organic mama. Being a mother is my absolute priority which is why I limit the amount of sessions I take each month.
a little about my process
I am a full service lifestyle family photographer, which means I will not only take photos of your family, or life event, I will help you turn them into beautiful works of art to hang on the walls in your home and to treasure for generations to come. Your session can take place in your home (always for newborn) or at one of the many beautiful outdoor locations North Atlanta has to offer.
My style of photography results in a collection of images that speak to your family’s unique beauty and connection. A session with me will be fun and easy going and I will never ask you to be who you are not! My full session fee is $150 and includes the on location session experience, usually around an hour, wardrobe options, styling assistance, and your proofing gallery of at least 70-80 images from which you will pick your favorites for me to edit and deliver as your finals. My digital image packages start at $325 and I always give you an option to purchase all the images from your proofing gallery. Together we can also discuss where and how you would like to display your images, in your home, and I will guide through my best products and prints from the leading high quality print lab I use for all my printing needs.
