NewYorkPortraitPhotographerBeing a portrait and boudoir photographer for women has been, and continues to be, an amazing experience. It has changed my life in so many positive ways.  I have been humbled by many stories and empowered by many others. Photographing women has not only brought new and wonderful friends into my life but also made me look at myself differently.

Empowering women to feel better about themselves and their bodies, forced me to practice-what-you-preach, so to speak. After all, how can you help women feel confident in front of the camera when you yourself are not? For that I am grateful to all my clients who (without knowing) made me be less critical of myself and taught me to be more self accepting, loving and positive.

From now on, I will share not only images of my clients but their stories as well. (With their consent of course). I will also share anything else that can be helpful to us women, whether its a motivational quote, healthy recipe, or a how-to.

Feel free to share, follow and be inspired. All positive feedback is welcome!

With love,
Oksana
