"We enjoyed our maternity photo shoot with EJB. She made the session easy to follow and we didn’t feel rushed. From the consultation to the end, she made the process so flexible and is great to work with. She’s also very responsive if you need to get a hold of her. 100% we would recommend her! Thank you for taking great care of us!"

"Evelina was absolutely nothing short of amazing! We are so very glad we chose her to do our Newborns photos and couldn't be happier with our choice. She was super friendly, easy to work with and made us very comfortable throughout the entire process.
Would 1,000% recommend if you're looking to have Professional Photos taken!"

"Evelina always has such a great eye for unique photos and makes you feel very comfortable. I’ve had a maternity session and both of my daughter’s newborn photos through her and every single one is perfect. Her photos are truly a work of art. It’s always hard choosing which ones to frame!"

"EJB is the best in the business! She always captures our family so perfectly - even when we think there is no way she got a good shot with our kids being difficult, she WOWs us every time :) The quality of her photos is amazing, you can tell she takes a lot of time on each photo when editing to ensure each image is perfect. She is also so great with kids of all ages (the baby whisperer of newborns) and will not give up until she gets a smile or two when dealing with toddlers. You won't regret booking with Evelina!"

I went to Evelina for my newborn shoot. She was so great with my daughter. I was worried about her crying and not cooperating for the photos but that worry quickly faded. By the end of the shoot I was so excited to see how they turned out. I brought my own outfit and she had many to use of her own . Many props and backgrounds. She was nothing short of amazing. I was completely satisfied with the whole experience from the interaction, pictures, and quality. Worth every dime.

Evelina was very professional and I enjoyed her package options. I was able to make a payment plan for the price. She did my maternity photos and newborn session and I think they turned out great. Can’t wait to display them on my wall. Thank you Evelina!

Evelina is honestly the best photographer! She took her time with my kids. She even stopped to feed my newborn when she was cranky during her photo shoot. She’s so professional and great at what she does. I wouldn’t chose anyone else to take pictures of my family!
