Hello! I am Alena.
I am an artist, a mother of two little boys, a wife, a former daycare teacher, a storyteller and a photographer.
I love to create unique images full of love and happiness. I make my own handmade decorations; I design my own little outfits and create the setting you will love.
I use my art to make the world a more beautiful place. I want to show the magic of the moment that might not be visible to everyone. Children grow so fast, capturing the first steps, first year and family moments together is so special.
My photographs evoke emotions; looking at them should make you feel happy, warm and energized.
They should cheer you up when you feel sad. They will keep these beautiful moments alive. My pictures tell your story, capture the moment and treasure it forever. I believe everybody has a beautiful story that should be told.
We are living in very fast moving world. The pictures of our loved ones become more and more important than ever before. You can share your story through these images to your family, your friends or even to future generations.
My passion and creativity lies in my ability to express myself in a unique way. I am telling your story through my eyes and my art.
I put my whole heart in creating my images. Smile does wonders and prolongs our life expectancy.
My art makes you smile.
