For more than seven years now I have been channeling my love for beautiful moments and connection into photography. I specialise in maternity, newborn and family photography because to me family is everything. I have more photos of my own kid than I can count – and I wouldn't want to let go of a single one of them. Every time I look at a picture on our wall or I flick through an album, my heart overflows with memories and emotion. And I want the same for you. I want to create stories in imagery that feels modern, true to you and more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
And you, mom, I want you to be yourself in front of my camera. To feel that very moment, enjoy every second of it, and to understand how special you are. Through my pictures I want you to see that you are a perfect mother for your kids, that you are a strong and beautiful woman, and that all of this is reflected in the bond between you and your family.
I believe that love and connection give our lives meaning, and that when we do our work with love, it becomes more beautiful and valuable. Love is at the very heart of what I want for you. I want to capture the love and connection between you and your family, to preserve the love you have right now and see it grow over the years.
Time can move so fast and even though it never seems like that in the moments, when it’s gone – we wish we would have preserved it in some way, been more present. This is what I want to give you. A time machine in some way. Photos that you can take out in a year or ten or fifty, that bring tears to your eyes and butterflies to your belly.
I’m the kind of person that always cares more about others than for herself – and I am the same with all my clients. I care deeply about your experience and that you receive the perfect images of you and your family.
It's the story of how I got to where I am today. When I was young I spent countless hours going through our family photo album. We had only one, with very few pictures in it, but it made those few pictures all the more important to me.
When I think back to that young version of myself admiring all those precious moments in the photos, I can't help but think that that very album and the way it made me feel inspired what I do today – sharing that same feeling with others.
I understand you, because in so many ways, we are the same. I am obsessed with capturing every moment and milestone in my daughter's life – images give me a way to hold onto them forever. And these images grow in value with every passing year.
I also know that it's hard to step in front of the camera, and that it tends to bring out all the little and bigger insecurities that us mothers have. But I am here to help you through them. Because you are amazing and you deserve to be in those pictures.
I document what I see in front of my camera: an incredible woman and her family. You, mama, are always the centre of my attention and the stories I capture are there to show you how brightly your light shines. I encourage you to be silly, be in love, be YOU, and to let me share in that with you.
My fellow family or newborn photographer, I know all the hurdles and problems you might be facing right now, and I would love to help you in your journey, sharing all the things I've learned over the seven years of my photography career. I am here to help you learn and grow your business.
What a great experience! Rufina is very calm, kind, relaxed and peaceful person so we felt so comfortable with her during our 7 days newborn shoot. Me and my husband were totally amazed at her talent to deal with infants. Our baby felt cozy and slept almost the entire session.
Rufina has great taste in style and a gift for how to dress her tiny models. She has a knack for choosing decoration, clothing, best poses and angels especially for your baby. You don't have to do anything; she does it all by herself. Rufina knows exactly what new babies and parents need. You can be sure that your baby in a safe hands! ONLY LOVE!
