Timeless portrait photography
(Re)discover yourself through portrait
Hi! My name is Anastasia, I’m a photographer in BC, Canada.
My passion is to capture vibrant, emotional moments. That’s why I really enjoy creating candid portrait photography for my clients!
Portraits can be empowering, perception changing. They help you feel more confident, appear for other people in a certain way.
Let the world get to know you the way you are, or who you want to be!
Portrait sessions cover a wide range of photography:
Formal corporate and actor profile headshots and team photos.
Lifestyle outdoor portraits for personal use – perfect for boosting confidence and capturing certain period in life!
Lifestyle outdoor portraits for professional use – great way to have more content for your social business accounts.
Beauty studio and outdoor portraits (that often involve professional makeup artist and gown rental).
Maternity portraits (indoor and outdoor).
Children’s photo (including seasonal sessions, like Easter).
READY TO DISCUSS YOUR NEXT PORTRAIT?
I absolutely love creating editorial portraits in a fitting, meaningful environment
Whether it’s a location that’s important for you or your business, or a studio shoot, I always ask for “why”. This is an opportunity for me to learn more about you and your expectations. I love discussing new ideas with my clients – this is where the soul of a shoot is found. 🖤
Often, I’m the one who suggests a visual concept for a portrait shoot. I work with some clients for years, keep an eye on and support their businesses. So I always have something new to offer when they come back to me for more photos!
Frequently Asked Questions
I will get in touch with you with some questions about the project and your availability. I hope to meet you! Whether it’s a video chat, phone call, or in person over a cup of coffee!
Yes, it’s possible! There are plenty of amazing photo spaces for rent – from photo studios to living environments.
I’ve got you!
Corporate and team photography is available on your location, or at a studio I will rent for the purpose of this photo event.
That’s why you have me, your photographer! You don’t have to be a model to look great and confident on photos. 😍
I will help you with prompts, directions. If it’s not enough, we will find a stylist and makeup artist to take it to the next level.
There is no single answer for this question since every project is different.
But I will guide you through the process, that will be unique to your photo shoot, and make sure you know what to expect at every step of it!
Depending on theme of a shoot, answer might be different.
General rule is to wear something you feel confident and powerful in. Try not to wear neon colors (they don’t play well on camera), unless they are imperative to style of your session.
If it’s raining on the time of the shoot, we will have to reschedule to the nearest available date.
1 hour lifestyle session usually yields 30 photos as a result.
I’ll be honest – it never happened to me. Why? Because I always keep my clients posted and show results on the back screen of my camera! If something is off, we catch it early, and I retake that photo right there.
My vision, but you are in control! 🤝
If you are counting weeks, schedule your session around 30 weeks of pregnancy. Don’t wait for too long – posing around due date might be uncomfortable!
I looove photographing children! They give camera genuine unfiltered emotions that are absolutely unique!
And they seem to like me too. So I will try to get the conversation going with your kid, and maybe bribe them a bit with organic hard candies (if allowed by parents).
It usually helps if I know your child’s interests to start a conversation. I also have some fun easy prompts for kids that might change their mood to the better!
Consider scheduling their photo session around their nap time, when they are at their best.
Rest assured, I’ll do my best to connect with your kid for the best photos!
1 hour of a lifestyle outdoor photo session is C$300. All you need for that is yourself in your fav outfit and good mood! 🙂
Get in touch with me about business photography pricing.
Within 2 weeks after our photo session I will send you a link to your gallery where you can select images you like the best.
I will retouch them for final delivery for you.
And then the images will become available in full resolution, ready for download and print!
I got a few options for you.
First – you will be able to order high quality professional prints right from your gallery.
I will consult you on the best options based on your particular choice of image and media.
Second – for those of you who would like to order a higher end fine art print or an album. I collaborate with Decora album studio based in Ontario. Their albums and prints are absolutely stunning, and are worthy of becoming a true piece of your heirloom. We will go through the options together so you could make your choice!
My clients are saying
Anastasia has a natural talent to find great photo spots and pays attention to every single detail, light, shadow, poses, steps. After taking a photo she shows it to me and i still find it amazing how she can see and capture the beauty of the landscape.
Working with Anastasia was wonderful. We had a relaxed shoot in English Bay that felt more like a walk with a friend. What blew me away though, was the photos. Absolutely stunning! I highly recommend booking with Anastasia when you get the opportunity.
Loved working with Anastasia! She is fun and down to earth. She made my photo session unforgettable. She is kind, receptive to ideas and has an extraordinary eye to details. Anastasia brought my vision to life way better than I expected. I can't wait to work with her again!
