My name is Lesia. I was born in the golden land of Ukraine. Ukraine is a wonderful country full of rich ancient history. I grew up with teachers and doctors. My dad is a teacher and my grandmother and my grandfather were both doctors. As a child I liked to sing and to dance and I dreamt of being a famous singer. We have not been very rich family, but once I signed myself up for piano classes and then went back home and tell my parents that classes begin next week and they are not free! I graduated from the musical classes; won some local contests and while studying there I took part at many plays at school. My desire to express my creativity was just growing and growing. But, I was supposed to be a teacher or a doctor at least that is what my parents thought. Being a singer or a piano player did not seem like something real. I graduated from the Pedagogical University in Nikolaev and went into the teaching field. But always tried to escape to something more creative and more artistic.
I remember my first camera was a small Olympus. I noticed that I like to capture a small part of this world and like to see other people and nature through my photographs. My friends told me that I need to try photography. I didn’t think so but very deep I have the seed planted. It was my dream to become a very good photographer. Dreams really can come true as I am now a photographer, but not with Olympus any more. The professional Nikon D810 requires much different skill than the Olympus. People now say that they love to look at my work, love to work with me, and I love to meet with them and work with them.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
— Karl Lagerfeld
I will capture the most precious moments in your life. I will tell your story and paint it in color or black and white. I can listen, I can hear and feel the person. I know how to capture the feeling of the big party, or the magic and simplicity of a solo portrait. I want my clients to be very happy with my work. I always try to meet with my clients to discuss the project and to get closer to each other, to see the person one on one and to understand what is desired. My goal is to photograph spontaneity, action, emotions, showcasing your inner and outer beauty.
I love my work, I love the most unexpected moments it brings me every time, experience, new friends, stories, lessons, emotions and challenge. I would love to meet with you and capture the best moments in your life, turn your dreams into reality. I would be happy to become your family photographer or add some amazing headshots to your business page, would be honored to see my work hanging on the wall in your office or at home.
I look forward to working with you –
