Hi, friend! I’m Ivana!
Most days you can find me taking photos, hiking, or curled up on the couch with my son and husband, reading, playing board games, or plotting our next family vacation. You can also catch me watching YouTube tutorials about the newest photo gadgets while sipping on a huge cup of coffee.
I was born and raised in Europe and embarked on my journey to the United States many years ago (it makes me feel old when I do the actual count). As a little girl, I always wanted to travel and see the world. Emigrating to the States has been a dream come true.
I often daydream about laundry folding itself and the house getting cleaned on its own. Isn’t daydreaming fun?
The things I am most passionate about in life are my family, photography, and chocolate.
When I’m not busy working on my next photo project, you can catch me hiking, baking, and spending time with my family and friends.
Outside of work, I love tasting new coffees and watching sports, especially soccer and tennis, and love teaching others about all things photography.
About My Work
I photograph people who want unique portraits and personalized artwork of their family or children. I am lucky to capture them in a way in which no one else has because storytelling is what I do! I focus on capturing genuine expressions and interactions among family members.
Several years ago, I expanded my services to include real estate photography/videography, family videography, and small business/personal brand photography and videography with emphasis on web and social media content.
People often refer to me as passionate, talented, and a loyal friend. I am mostly known for my storytelling approach to photographing clients, quirky personality, and love for chocolate. I love serving other moms by uplifting, encouraging, and collaborating with other #bossladies. Get all the scoop here.
Here are five more things you might not know about me:
1. I am fluent in two and a half languages - Serbian (my native), English (my adopted), and am still working on my conversational French.
2. I love pretty pens – sorry if I have ever taken yours accidentally.
3. I love (and play) tennis (when my back allows it).
4. I love 80s music and to dance (I am not a good dancer, but who cares?!)
5. I am painfully neat and organized (but am working hard on letting go)
