Hello, I am Asya!

I love life and I have always captured many wonderful people and places I’ve encountered over the years, creating souvenirs and memories that truly reflect the experience and bring joy whenever they’re viewed.

Born and educated in Russia, I went to study in China at the age of 20. I lived and worked in China, Russia, France and USA, until finding my home in the friendly English village of Twyford in 2003. All these years I’ve shared my stories with friends and family members around the world through photographs, and always associated photographs with joy and happiness.

Everyone can relax in front of my camera

My focus has always been on creating truly special and unique experiences for my clients – everything I do is about making my subjects feel good, then reliving those positive feelings through the photographs again and again.

My deepest belief is that everyone is beautiful and everyone can enjoy the magic of photography. I shoot things the way I see them, and since I see beauty around me, my photographs simply reflect it. My clients tell me that I make them feel very comfortable and relaxed, which helps me bring out their true character and personality. That applies to everything from a business portrait to a lively family shot.

From families to toddlers to teens to professionals

I specialise in portraiture and I have a special gift of seeing beauty in every face. No matter what age my subjects are, I connect with everyone in way that allows their beauty shine through.

99% of adults tell me that they dreaded being photographed. It’s an incredible feeling seeing them at the end of a session telling me that they really enjoyed it, and then watching their astonished faced when they realise how beautiful they can look.

Another important aspect of photography is helping local charities with fundraising and capturing charity events. I am always happy to donate raffle prizes.

Who am I when not with the camera?

As well as being mum to my talented, funny and individual teenager, I’m an aunt to three gorgeous kids who live in Moscow, a sociable and loyal friend, adventurous traveller, and a passionate Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba dancer. I also love exercising and spending time outdoors.

Recently I took part in amazing book project, called “Joy – Recipes For Abundance” and shared the story of how photography has transformed my life.
