Hello my dear friends!
This is my first post in this blog and yes, I decided to start blogging here on my website, not only on my Instagram and Facebook pages. I hope that my blog will be interesting and useful for you.
I am planning to share my story, my passion, my creative work in photography. I am also planning to share some tips and tricks ( like posing, outfits, styling and makeup ) to have best photoshoot ever and get the best photographs you ever had in your life. Also I will be sharing my behind the scenes videos and photos of my photoshoots with my precious clients and describe how I work and create my art.
For those who doesn't know me yet :
So here we go!
My name is Leila and I am a portrait photographer in Manchester, New Hampshire.
I came to USA from Ukraine in 2010. I have a husband and 3 grown up children.
I wanted to do what I like most in my life. But I was working different jobs - I was high school teacher, kindergarten teacher, I was retail employee in Macy's, I was singing in the band and singing in the church..
Opportunity came in here and I started my professional photography in 2018. I called it Y'R Charm photography which stands for "you are charm" . I graduated photography institute and I am still taking different Master classes and courses, because it's never too much. I am learning the new trends in photography and also researching the work of old style and famous photographers of the world.
Most of all I attracted to a portrait photography. I am doing fine art portraits for women, teens/seniors , headshots/personal branding , families.
I had passion for photography since I was a kid when my grandfather gave me my very first camera and it was in 1975. I started photographing my schoolmates, my parents, and when I grew up it was my family, my kids, friends, etc. Now I decided that it is time for me to follow my passion and become a professional photographer and I love every minute of it. Especially with all the new technology in the world, I realize that we have more opportunities to create art which very deep matches with our vision.
Every time when I take my camera I see a lot of people, which are extraordinary every one of them and I want to see their essence and catch it and it makes my work even more exciting .
Today is the Anniversary of my business - I started exactly 4 years ago.
And when I look behind I can see how I grew up and became a real professional photographer and not only a photographer, but also an artist.
I am grateful to all of you that you are with me and for your love, friendship and that you choose me to be your photographer.
Thank you for reading my blog!
