Ksenia is a Melbourne based fashion and portrait photographer. She also frequently works overseas mostly in Italy and Russia.

Ksenia was born in Moscow/Russia and at the age of 17 she moved to Italy to study Economics and Marketing, that became her career until she discovered her passion for photography. Twelve years later she decided to give a twist to her life by moving permanently to Australia together with her husband Marco who is her biggest supporter in everything. 

Ksenia has been in the photography business since 2012 gaining experience in both studio and natural lighting. Currently she shoots in a beautiful natural light studio in St Kilda, but she is always happy to take photographs on location of your choice around Bayside or in Melbourne.

Ksenia specialises in female portraiture, showing through her lens to each one of them how beautiful and special they are. Her style is essential, feminine, elegant and sensual. It's all about having an unforgettable experience though out the day, that time that you dedicate time only for yourself and let Ksenia and her team pamper yourself.

By combining experience in fashion photography and passion for photographing women of all ages, Ksenia strives to create contemporary portraits that are meant to last forever.

"I have been using Ksenia for The Pacific Belles photo shoots for over a year. Ksenia is not only an excellent photographer, but she also had an amazing way of making us feel relaxed and at ease though out our session. Ksenia has an impeccable eye for detail and has helped us create amazing sets including a 1940‘s tea party on a rooftop. Not only has she captured us magnificently together as a singing group, she has gone above and beyond with her attention to detail for the finished result."

For anyone looking to have maternity photos taken, I couldn't recommend her highly enough, she's a gorgeous person inside and out, a friend and a photographer I work with often cause she is just amazing at what she does."

I would definitely work with her again and I continually recommend her to my friends."

I hired Ksenia to take my head shots and gave her a creative brief for a 1940s / 50s style Hollywood glamour shoot and I was thoroughly thrilled with the results! 
Ksenia made me feel comfortable on-set and she came up with wonderful ideas for props, sets, lighting and composition. I ended up with Hollywood glamour shots, pin up shots and burlesque shots and was very pleased to see how highly distinct the themes were from one-another. 

I enthusiastically recommend Ksenia's services to actors, models or performers wanting to get head shots or who need creative shots for their portfolios.

Ksenia is a an impressive photographer. Not only did she assist with my photography day to run ultra smoothly through her pro activity, she was very helpful and has a keen eye for detail! Post the photo shoot my images all arrived very promptly through her very use friendly online depository. 

I would thoroughly recommend her to others for any photography event and would be more than happy to use her again in the future for my business needs.

I am so delighted to have found Ksenia to take portrait photographs of my Mum. Knowing my Mum and how she could be fussy and picky about her look I was thrilled with the result. Ksenia dedicates lots of time to the job and put everyone at ease, photographing them with wonderful results. The pictures are stunning and there were so many to choose from. The album she produced was so well done there was no way we wouldn't have ordered it!

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Ksenia, and she was so professional and efficient at editing and then printing. We would definitely use her again in the future.
