Hi, friend! I’m Ivana.
Most days you can find me 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 20 years ago (man, I feel old). As a little girl I always wanted to travel and see the world. When I was 13 I told my parents I wanted to be a high school exchange student and to live in America. That is one thing I can cross off my bucket list! I am working on crossing off other items on my bucket list.
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, building LEGO, playing forts and knights or reading to my six-year old son.
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!
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.
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 collect 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)
