About Vesna

As a photographer, I strive to capture each person’s unique light and record the beauty and honesty that I see in them. I believe that creating a photograph is less about the mechanics than about the truth in the image. Anyone can learn a technique or buy a camera but what truly makes a picture is the person in front of me and how I capture who they are.

I grew up around photography-- my father worked as a wedding photographer and I started as his assistant in 1996 when I was 16 years old. When he retired I took over shooting weddings and in 2006 began focusing on child and family photography after having my own daughters. Even as a 16 year old, I always tried to photograph people as the best version of themselves, and that focus on capturing real moments is still something that guides me today. I take time to get to know my clients so that they will trust me and let their guard down in front of my camera. People sometimes try to give their “pretty face” for a photograph, but it’s never as beautiful as their real face and the authentic look in their eyes.

As a professional photographer for nearly 20 years, I strive to create images that capture each person’s unique light. I’ve always worked to get behind the “pretty face” that people learn to put on in front of the camera. Instead I want to capture the specific emotion and movement that are distinct to each person. Straddling the line between portraiture and photojournalism, I create images that are both honest and beautiful, photos that portray my clients as the best versions of themselves.
