Ksenia was recommended to me after searching a little while for a photographer. We instantly connected on the phone and I felt very comfortable with her. Ksenia is very open and has a super positive attitude. The combination of talent and skill with her awesome personality made me chose her over others.
Like most people that don't stand in front of the camera every day, I also get self-conscious and very critical of myself. Meeting Ksenia in person before the photoshoot and taking some time to talk about the desired outcome and concerns helped me to feel very relaxed on the day. My dog was also invited for the photoshoot which added another element of fun to the day.
Ksenia was very helpful in preparing for the session. She considered the branding colours of my business and helped with outfits, accessories and backdrops to make everything fit and align with the look and feel of my business. She put a lot of thought into creating images that feel natural and show personality. I also loved working with Nicole Groch who did my Hair and Make-up. Knowing that she uses high-quality products that are all vegan and cruelty free made a HUGE difference to me. I don't normally wear much make-up but felt great with what she did and her products are amazing.
The photoshoot was fun and I really enjoyed it - even though I am not a camera girl. But the most enjoyable part of the session was the time leading up to the shoot. Spending time on myself to get pampered, to get my hair and make-up done and to enjoy being looked after was very nice and nurturing. A good reminder how to practice self-love as a woman and to embrace femininity.
I highly recommend Ksenia for business portraits but also just to have some nice photos of yourself. It is totally worth it to invest the time and money for the experience and capture some beautiful and memorable moments of your life.

I wanted someone who could make me feel comfortable during the shoot and help bring out my personality to accurately reflect who I am and Ksenia was amazing for that! I literally did choose Ksenia over someone I had already booked because I could see how passionate and dedicated she was to her work.
My main concern was the fact that I wouldn’t be comfortable or happy with the images because of my own insecurities, but Ksenia really helped bridge that wall to get an end product I’m happy with.
Ksenia was really thorough to help me understand what was expected of me and what I needed to prepare for the shoot and went above and beyond to do her own research and help select outfits. The shoot was fun and throughout the whole process Ksenia was dedicated and always accessible and helpful right to the very end selection. Amazing!
The highlight for me was working with Ksenia who has such a beautiful personality and passion for her work that you can’t help but feel excited.
Ksenia is a very talented and professional photographer. I would recommend her to everyone.

From day 1 all interactions went seamlessly and Ksenia was extremely thorough and got me thinking about the look and feel of the shoot weeks before the actual session. I sent her a few photos of some of the outfits as I love colour and wanted to capture my high energy and passion so the photos weren’t one dimensional. The actual session was great and an hour in I started to relax, good music, great coffee and I felt real rapport with Ksenia and the camera. Her styling was great and she was so invested in every photo and look. Ksenia even organised a piece of fabric in my branding colour to use a backdrop, a great over and above initiative!
I am delighted with the photos and how natural they are. They were shot in natural light with subtle edits and Ksenia kept true to what I asked for and over delivered on this. I want photos that resemble me, I don’t want to be that person you meet who’s photos do not represent them or even how they look. The final results are fantastic and I have a repertoire of looks and expressions to choose from to use within Social media, bios, my website and keynote presentations.
Ksenia has exceeded my expectations. From the way she interacts, her follow up and above all her profound ability to capture the energy and presence of who you really are. She’s a quality person and a professional in what she does.

I had an honor to have Ksenia as my photographer for my iBreathe, Yoga & Mindfulness project, she was incredible in creating an environment and space where I felt so open, vulnerable and true.
She didn't only captured me as a yoga instructor but also as a woman, her talent & sensibility was so intuitive and helped me a lot to connect with the camera & show the real me.
I admired not only her talent as a photographer, but her ability to connect so authentically.

BOUDOIR PORTRAIT SESSION
What an incredible feeling I’ve got from Ksenia’s work! She was the one who managed to see those delicate facets in me, which are not visible even to myself.. That light sensation of my beautiful age which can only be seen in the look in my eyes that Ksenia was able to capture…
A sense of grace, a line of femininity, wisdom, genuine beauty - all of this she managed to reflect in my portraits! A true professional, a photographer who sees right through the heart and soul. I am grateful for meeting you, for your sincerity and warmth during all the time while you were creating your “Masterpiece". Your art came into my life, left a huge mark and an enormous delight after your work!

LOCATION PORTRAIT SESSION (ITALY)
My dog (a super excited Aussie) and I have lately been portrayed by Ksenia. She had two impossible tasks: 1. Take a still picture of Nebraska (my dog); 2. Take a smiling picture of me. And she actually accomplished both in the same shot! She got along with my dog in a super natural way and the 3 of us had a wonderful time together, shooting and laughing while walking at dawn under the Portici in Bologna (Italy). Great international experience and wonderful pics! Nebraska agrees with me, of course.

LOCATION PORTRAIT SESSION (ITALY)
Photographs help to remind us who we've been, what we've done and what experiences we've had.
Photographer's job is not easy: it's not enough to have beautiful light, a camera and a click. The photographer has to perceive, feel and share what you would like to be impressed.
Ksenia has this gift. Not only she is a true professional, she is also dedicated and very passionate about her job. For this reason she doesn't create just images, but emotional prints.
Marina C. - Rome, Italy
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.

I have been using Ksenia for The Pacific Belles photo shoots for over 2 years. 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.

Daniele Curto - editor of Segmento Magazine
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.
Bee Townsend - Performer & singer - Paris
I had so much fun during the photoshoot with Ksenia. I am not a professional model, I didn't expect it would be such a difficult job, which she does with lots of fun, helping you to see the best result you can ever imagine.
Ksenia recently worked with us recently in kind support of our inaugural non-for-profit event - Women in Tourism Leadership Lunch.
Ksenia was supportive from the outset, generous with her time, talent and photographs post event and marketing purposes.
Ksenia is a highly professional, talented and natural photographer who captured the essence and mood of the event as well as our speakers and guests. I couldn't recommend Ksenia enough.
Absolutely beautiful work!!
Ksenia photographed our new venue and really brought the space to life, not only with her incredible photos and eye for detail, but also with all your brilliant ideas on the spot.
She has also been shooting events for us and we truly love her work. Fantastic experience and I can't wait to work with you again!
