Hey, there! My name is


pronounced as [sveet-lah-nah]

I live in Arlington, VA, and work in DC metro area. I'm into documentary family photography at the moment and my favorite thing to do is to hang out with you blending in and capturing the essence of the relationship that is unfolding in front of me. There's a very thin line between directing a moment and capturing a genuine one, and I love to walk on that edge, so you get images not only beautiful but sincere.


I make films.


Making short films about people who are not afraid to live, love, travel, and appreciate ordinary little things is my thing.

If you're such a person - let me know!
