I capture stories with an intuitive approach diving into human essence and the ability to be connected to a broad spectrum of people.
I've been shooting professionally for 5+ years. It started as a hobby, but I quickly realized how much I enjoyed the act of making people look and feel their very best (and then capturing that on-camera).
Many photographers shoot landscapes, or weddings... but for me, it's always been people. I love building a 1-on-1 connection with my clients and pulling them out of their shell. I believe everyone has a photogenic element to them, we just need to find your right angles. 😉
My favorite spot in LA to shoot portraits is near the Santa Monica Boulevard. There's so many fantastic backdrops nearby, from high-end buildings to quaint coffee shops. This way we can give you as much variety as we possibly can during your photoshoot.
"Working with Xenia has been one of the best experiences of my life. I don't really consider myself photogenic and feel awkward when In front of a camera. However working with Xenia changed all that. They made taking photos effortless with their direction and the results were absolutely stunning! 10/10 would recommend."
"It was awesome working with Xenia. I knew that this was her element so I planned on just keeping quiet and taking direction. That plan failed because she kept me talking and laughing the whole time. A real professional that knows how to create a natural flowing photography environment."
