As a teenager I used to write a diary every night before I went to bed. I filled it with all the details of my day, things that seemed important back then and that made me emotional. At some point in high school my life became too busy and writing took too much of my time, so I stopped. That is when I swapped a pen for a camera and I started creating a visual journal.
I love photography just as much as I love traveling. I have a restless, curious soul that has taken me to many interesting places (and has connected with many incredible people along the way) and I’ve always had my camera at hand to document everything new and exciting on my traveling adventures. Back in high school I never imagined that my camera would become anything more than my travel companion.
My twenties were a whirlwind of important life events. I left my native Slovenia for a year in the States and then ended up in England, which I have called home now for over nine years. I got married to my wonderful South African husband and had three children. I graduated and got a masters in Psychology, only to become a stay-at-home mum two years later.
After my children were born I wanted to document their early years as much as I wanted to find something that kept me passionate and sane in between nappy changes and wiping sniffly noses. I turned to my trusted companion, my camera, and began a love affair with portrait photography.
I never imagined I would do this professionally but then again, I never imagined many other turns my life took so far. And I certainly never imagined I’d get so much joy from it.
You can see my recent work on my blog or have a look at my portfolio to get a feel of my photography style. On the blog I also share my personal photos and developments, things that inspire me and make me happy.
I am based in Surbiton, Surrey (UK) and am available to photograph all across Surrey, London and beyond. At least once a year I spend a few weeks in Slovenia and I have photographed maternity and family sessions there as well as a wedding. If you are interested in a session in Slovenia, please get in touch, so I can let you know when I am next there.
