My name is Rita. I am a mom, a wife and a photographer.
I’m from Eastern Europe, a little country called Latvia. I met my husband traveling in Europe. I have two sweet children. They are the love of my life!
How did I fall in love with photography?
My passion for photography started when my first son was born! I just wanted to capture every single thing he did. I don’t have a lot of photos of myself when I was little, so I wanted to make sure I have plenty of my children. I love to photograph children, maternity and families. I am full of energy and happiness. I always have so much fun with children!
What do I shoot with?
I use Canon 5D Mark III. I love Canon!! When I first started taking pictures I had an old Canon Rebel camera, then I upgraded to Canon Rebel T5i, but I outgrew it after a year and wanted a full frame camera. My husband surprised me with a Canon 5D Mark III for my birthday. It changed my whole photography.
Where do I shoot?
I am a natural light photographer, I love to be outside! My favorite places to photograph are parks, nature preserves, creeks, lakes, big fields, woods, etc.. I usually photograph an hour or two before sunset.
