YAY, you're here!

I'M NATALIYA ...

I grew up in Pakistan but have lived near Seattle in the Pacific Northwest of the US for almost 14 years now

Light chasing, random memories, cozy homes, family reunions & heart-to-heart conversations over endless cups of chai (tea made the Pakistani way)  are some of my favorite most things. 

My heart is happiest when I'm behind the camera, looking at life through the viewfinder and finding beauty in all of this chaos that makes up our lives with our families.

-----

I'm on a life-long mission to celebrate the normal & ordinary. And my wish for when you get photos done with me, or when you stop by my corners of the internet.. that you feel an appreciation for YOUR OWN ordinary every-day and your messy life & family. Hugs. 

-----

Want to share a piece of your heart with me over chai (or virtual chai) & be friends?

MORE ABOUT MY WORK + STYLE


Taking natural-looking, emotive & "happy" photos of people - that capture the fleeting season of their lives with their loves is my main muse ... 

I love to document the big, photo-worthy moments for you - but even more so : all the little details. The things that become blurry memories over time ... the stolen glances & touches, those beautiful baby lashes, the curves of those baby faces & their pouty lips - the hysterical giggles and even the sad tears in between..

More than pretty photos, I want to take beautifully honest ones; ones that make you smile, that help you see how perfect your imperfect is - your life, your kids, your body, you..  

------

If you are looking for more traditional, everyone-looking-into-the-camera, posed kind of shots, I may not be the right person for you - BUT IF, like me, you appreciate "more", I'm your girl. 

More heart, more emotion, more feels. Sigh

WHY CHOOSE ME FOR PHOTOS 

HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BENEFITS YOU GET RIGHT NOW 

> I am a registered business with a business license from the City of Renton. 

> Professional quality equipment including a full-frame back-up camera for un-unforeseen emergencies (life does happen!). 

> I have invested in a color-calibrated laptop which provides superior color accuracy which means I am confident about the colors when I'm editing photos. ( colors can look different on every single machine and in print so without color calibration the photos you paid for may not look the same when you print them). 

> I purchase membership for proofing + delivery websites so delivery of your photos is done in a beautiful, safe & convenient way. 

> Thanks to my husband, I have very reliable backup systems in place to store photos. My sessions come with a promise to maintain a backup of your photos for at least a year (most likely I will have them for much longer than that). You can count on your photos being safe with me and being able to retrieve them after your session in case you lose them for any reason. 

I regularly invest in education and learning to get even better at my art, the quality of my photos as well as the experience of working with clients. 

> After working for these years & building a name for myself, my client's satisfaction means everything to me! Even on the rare occasions where a client wasn’t satisfied with any part of their experience, I have made sure they leave happy. It makes me so excited that each single one of those clients have returned to me again & again for their photography needs after their experience.  

> I have a membership with the very-popular-with-photographers Millers Lab for your printing needs & am able to order the best quality of prints & enlargements for you through them.
