My name is Nina. I am a self taught photographer who has been shooting people for over 15 years. I recently moved to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia from Connecticut where I lived the first 40 years of my life. My husband and two girls are everything to me. While living in Connecticut I did photography in addition to working a full time job. 2020 was quite a ride for all of us. The year forced us to step back and reexamine life. Since the pandemic started I was forced to quit working in order to take care of our two girls when schools closed. Photography is my passion and hobby.
My style is very laid back. I have a good sense of humour and can relate to pretty much anyone. I did not attend college for photography or have any professional training in photography. In my opinion an expensive camera and equipment does not determine a great photographer. It is what you do with the camera and lenses you own, how you relate to people, how you set up shots, and most importantly its about integrity. I believe that having photos taken should be stress free and an enjoyable memory for everyone. Life is so unpredictable and can change at any moment. Life is extremely precious. I feel so blessed to have a skill that enables me to freeze moments in time so folks can look back and cherish those moments forever.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work, I look forward to working with you.
