Hi and welcome! I'm Agnes (aka Agnieszka),

Life is so precious and full of amazing stories. It is my life goal to be present in every moment to fully benefit from the beauty and life around us. Therefore, I believe photography should be as pure as possible capturing true expression with the use of beautiful natural light. I strive to capture emotionally moving photographs that tell stories of individual connections, warmth and love. Photographs that pull the viewer into that very space of time. 

I was born in Poland and moved to the US with my family when I was 11. Along the way I stepped my foot in art school where I studied fine art and eventually got a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. At the age of 21 I lost my mom to brain cancer which impeccably shaped who I am today. Around the same time, I met my polish husband. After a few years of travels and fun we bought a house in Cleveland Heights built in 1925 and had our sweet daughter Elena. Three years later our son Peter was born and made our family complete. Art and creativity have always been a part of me one way or another. It is my passion and a part of my soul.

Some of my simple pleasures are evening walks with my kids and husband, coffee with chocolates, relaxing on my porch, spending time with family and friends, yoga and a good book (still prefer paper over e-books)! And that glass of wine after the kids are asleep! 

My kids inspire me to capture photographs that often make me shed a tear. I realize they are growing up too fast with a lot of fun along the way.  The pictures I take today, I know I will want tomorrow. 

Photographing moments in a honest, laid back and fun way makes me incredibly happy and I hope to do the same for you and your family. Please contact me to set up your photography session!
