Word On the Street


“Last Sunday Natalia came over to my place on short notice to do a airbnb photoshoot. I wasn’t quite ready for her but she wasn’t annoyed with me lol.  In fact, she was patient and waited politely for me to “get with the program”.  Man am I glad she did!! The pics turned out way better than I would have imagined.  Her expertise really brought out the beautiful colors of the textiles throughout my place.  Great eye overall I’d say!..  She is a consummate professional, efficient, cheerful, unimposing, and gracious.  I’d have her back to do more pictures for me anytime!  Thanks N!” ~Roxy


“Dear Natalia, I want to tell you how fantastic the photos of our home turned out. We are so pleased. Thank you for arriving on time, taking the time to listen to our goals for the photo shoot and for producing a great product! Please tell your parents that your architectural degree is paying off big time! I would be happy to refer you in the future to friends and clients. Best regards, Karen M.”


“I decided while I was starting to set up my business (recording studio), that it would be a good idea to have a professional photographer take pictures of my space for my website. I chose Natalia because I have seen her prior work and have been impressed on how she seems to find a beautiful photograph in just about everything. Well, I made the right choice!! The pictures of my studio came out great. She gave me both creative and professional photos, which i have not only used for my website, but for my flyers and business listings. To top it off, the turnaround time was fast and efficient. When she came in, I did not know exactly what I wanted, but she somehow knew. I am very satisfied with the end product and would recommend Natalia to anyone that needs photos for anything .. she is that versatile.” – Bryan (owner of DFAB Studios) –  DFAB Studios website


“Thank you for the great photos you did for me both for my professional web site and Breathing for Peace, I love how you captured my essence, I looked at the photos and it did look like me from the inside, thank you ♥” -Shanti  – Breathing for Peace


“Beautiful photos! We’ve had so much fun on the shoot, we hardly noticed we were being photographed!
We highly recommend Natalia for any planned photographs – she guides you as to what to do at the same time giving you the freedom to express your uniqueness, and all is captured in her photos.” -Ceci S.


We absolutely love the photos and are so incredibly pleased that we chose FCI to shoot our engagement session! You not only helped us feel comfortable and natural, but also brought out our true personalities and made them shine in each frame. We have been trying to pick a favorite to send to our close friends and family… but it’s too hard! We love them all. The edited frames were a great bonus. Thank you! You made the day wonderful, fun and unforgettable for us and we couldn’t be happier.” -Erica R.


“Within 30 minutes of meeting Natalia, I sprung a last-minute photo project on her. She responded, graciously, by hopping on our bus tour filled with 17 strangers and taking phenomenal photos of our bus tour participants, our clients, and their food. She has since volunteered her services multiple times for our diverse group of refugee small business owners, all of whom weren’t able to access professional-quality photos for their marketing materials. Thanks to her help, our clients are now able to represent themselves more affectively on their websites, flyers, and business cards. We couldn’t have done it without her!” -Ryan L. (IRC – San Diego)
