Im a wife, a mom and a photographer!
I have been happily married to my best friend for almost ten years! I have two little sons, Drew (6) and Mason (3). They are just the cutest, their laugh and their fun inventions just fill my heart with joy every day! I started my photography career because of my children! I started taking photos six years ago, the day my first son was born. I wanted to capture all of his milestones, I didn't want to forget a thing. When my second son was born, I fell in love with Newborn photography. I took many workshops to learn how to safely and correctly pose the baby. I studied and practiced almost every day to be where I am today! Most of the time the baby outfits, wraps, headbands, floors, backgrounds you see in photos are handmade by me.
I was born and raised in Latvia. I grew up on a stunning farm where I developed the crazy love for nature. I love to be outdoors with my family. My favorite places to photograph are in creeks, parks, fields, lakes, etc.
I am one of eight children. I have six sisters and one brother. I feel like that's where I gained the love for children from my own siblings. The childhood memories I have with them I will treasure forever! I speak 4 languages, English is not my first language, but I try my best at it, lol.
I love life, if you have worked with me you know I bounce off the walls like the child that just got to eat the cake for the first time. I get so excited about the smallest things!
Thank you for being here and I hope to meet you soon !!
Warm wishes, Rita
