I am Alina, a multilingual photographer and a global citizen, fascinated by love in all forms -- and privileged to be able to capture it. I am honoured to be working with women, mothers, and couples in love. I am proud to have been published in VOGUE as one of their PhotoVogue photographers, sharing stories of love from around the world.
I am a photographer's daughter and am very lucky to have been doing photography for literally as long as I can remember. Thanks to that, I have 20 years of solid photography experience in my hands and eyes. My childhood was filled with film printed photos that my dad worked on, sometimes, literally covering the floor and walls in pictures he was working on retuning to his clients. I have studied fine art as a teenager, and am still frequenting museums and exhibitions at every opportunity. This is how my style in motherhood photography evolved into what many of my clients call "Caravaggio"-esque. I am constantly growing and investing in my development and education as an artist, constantly collaborating and working with others. Photography brings me fulfillment and is my absolute passion. I work on a number of projects such as Matrescence, where I explore the process of becoming a mother.

"I just saw pictures and I am so emotional right now, I am literally crying. All I can say is WOW. These photos are genuinely incredible.
So warm, intelligently shot, with a beautiful use of light and shade. You have captured my joy and love for my children in the most intimate way. The photos are playful and deeply emotional at the same time. I adore them."

"I know that what I am doing, giving all my time, attention, and mind to
the children, is worthwhile. I know it is a beautiful thing to do — and yet it is also so tremendously difficult. I wish mothers could see more often how beautiful these moments are, not just by reflecting on them later in life, when the children are older and the sleepless nights had passed, but already here, now, in the middle of the mess, the dirty nappies, and unending demand. It's a proof that something wonderful is going on"

"Alina took beautiful pictures of me and my children which make me look beautiful amid all the mess and struggle of motherhood. I was hoping for a little treat to myself, but I have received so much more - truly unique works of art which capture this busy and special time. The photoshoot was very natural without much posing, yet the photos are stunning. Alina was fantastic with the kids, and very considerate and kind. We enjoyed it!"

"Alina is a born photographer! She has an incredible eye for detail, she waits patiently to get the right shot and makes you feel comfortable every tiny second during the shoot. I booked Alina for a rather challenging nursing shoot with my back then 5 months old son and I’m still at awe of the pictures she managed to take, among those 3 published in the Vogue! She’s a natural and one of the kindest, sweetest and most professional person I’ve met so far! Forever grateful for this experience and the results!"

"Alina, your an incredible photographer! Your love and passion for a photography helped you develop an eye for very special and unique shots! Its very easy and comfortable to work with you even if we are not professional models because you make us feel completely relaxed and comfortable around the camera. Some shots are deserved to be published in an art gallery I believe !"

"I was looking for a photographer to capture me and my son, I am so happy I found Alina. She is absolutely exceptional and truly captured the emotions between us. I was blown away by the photos and will be using her again whenever I need professional photos. I highly recommend Alina, you will not regret working with her."

"I was lucky enough to win a photoshoot with Alina. I had my doubts about a remote photoshoot (using my phone and an app?!)! But Alina has a great eye and gave us some absolutely beautiful, intimate portraits of our family, despite not even being in the room with us. I am so grateful to her, and so impressed"
