EJB Photography

say hello! »

Thank you for visiting my site and wanting to find out more about me.  For starters, I was born and grew up in Poland and my family moved to the United States when I was 12.  After I graduated high school, I married my wonderful husband Bernard and we had 2 boys, DeAnte and Sebastian. 
Growing up in the 90's I am a fan of all 90's music and that is what you will hear mostly on my playlist, I do love all genres of music and art and that along with being a mother and wanting to capture every fleeting moment of my children's life led me to become a photographer. I am mostly self taught but found out that there is so much more to photography then just the creative part, I have since taken and continue to take not only photography courses to stay up with latest trends and work of those who I admire but also lot of business courses and coaching. 
I fell in love with newborn photography and fine art, I always loved painting and drawing so that was a natural transition. I love fashion and motherhood combined, that led me to know I wanted to specialize in maternity, newborn and motherhood photography. 
Now I would love to work with you to create a session you have dreamt of, I will guide you every step of the way.

Here's a snapshot into my world.

A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life

The 3 men in my life are my everything, the reason for always pushing myself to be the best mother, wife and person for them. 

My Family

When I was younger, my family moved quite a bit in Poland and we visited the Czech Republic as well as Germany. 
Traveling with my own family has become a quick favorite thing to do together. I am happy to say my husband and kids caught the travel bug.  My husband, myself and my oldest love to do adventurous things, love nature and hikes etc. My youngest son, loves big cities and the fashion scene. Our favorite family trip was to London in 2019.

My Favorite Things

"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!
