Average rating of 4.8 out of 5 based on 62 reviews

I started getting interested in photography when I was 13 and our family dog was one of my first models. At 17, I went to college, majoring in photography in St. Petersburg, Russia, and tried my hand at different genres: portrait, photojournalism, weddings, and object photography. Now I've moved onto families, their unique relationships, milestones, babies, and of course, pets are my main passion, the beauty of which I want to convey in my work.

More about Marina P....

What do you love about your job?

I love people, family values, babies, and animals. I really love capturing fleeting magical moments of beauty in my pictures.
I try to tie all these subtle things together in my work, which is why I love literally everything about it!

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have a very big experience of shooting in the studio with natural light as well as using flash photography. And I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of little charming models who don’t know how to behave well in front of the camera. Babies and animals most often do not know how to pose but in my opinion, this isn't a drawback at all! On the contrary, it's easy to make any shoot special if you follow them. Along my professional journey, I've also discovered magical tricks that help me create truly captivating images of my newborn baby models. All newborn shoots are truly special!

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

My greatest honor is to see that my photos bring joy! The people are surprised at how beautiful their families really are! For me, recognition is to sometimes see my photos on the social media pages of my clients and in their homes. For eleven years I've been putting out a calendar with my photos for my social media followers. Knowing that they admire my work is one of my biggest rewards! I also received several awards at a local photography contest in Russia, but I think that it doesn't matter :)

A fun fact about this photographer

Sometimes I think I should have taken pictures of my own family more often but sometimes even photographers forget how important it is to save wonderful moments of us being together.
