ALBENA ILIEVA PHOTOGRAPHY
"We were fortunate Albena was available on short notice to photograph our newborn. She was just a joy to work with. Made sure our daughter was comfortable, worked with us (including some extended family who was in town) to get the best shots. The process was fun, easy and incredibly creative. In the end, we loved every single photo. Could not recommend Albena more highly....!" Ali R.

"Albena was amazing, super flexible to schedule, great to communicate with, and very warm to talk to. She really helped us prepare as it was our first photo session ever as a family and we didn´t know what to expect with our two little ones (1 and 3 years old). Albena knew exactly how to make us all feel comfortable so that we could enjoy our time together. We all felt relaxed very quickly, laughing and connecting, it was such a fun time. The results were beyond our expectations. We value these memories like a beautiful treasure, absolutely worth it! We definitely plan to continue to work with Albena." R, D,
"Albena was such a pleasure to work with and captured our family beautifully. We had a pretty tricky toddler who wasn't cooperating and Albena was so sweet, kind and patient. Despite an uncooperative toddler, Albena still captured beautiful photos of the family and we are thrilled with the end result. She was responsive and helpful throughout the entire process and we will absolutely be using her to take our family photos again in the future :)" Michelle W.

"Albena is definitely the photographer you want behind the camera to capture your family photos. We met Albena for a wonderful photo session at the picturesque Sutro Baths park in San Francisco. She made the session fun and engaging leading to natural photos that captured who we are when we're together. Not only beautiful family photos, but Albena has a trained eye for creating the perfect backdrop in nature. We're so happy we got to work with her, and can't wait a schedule another session in the future!"

"My husband and I had a really great maternity photoshoot with Albena. She was professional, and always responsive to emails and texts. She made us feel really comfortable and took really natural and beautiful photos! Lighting and backdrop were amazing, and she clearly knew how to take photos in the park we chose. Would 100% recommend for family/maternity photos :)"T.H.
"Albena was amazing at capturing our newborn photos! She was so great at handling our baby in a way to keep her happy and posing her in adorable ways. She was quick to respond, very easy to work with, and made us feel comfortable while taking the photos. Would highly recommend!" T.C.
"My friend sent me a Christmas card with a beautiful family picture. I loved it so much that I asked her who took the photo. She referred me to Albena and gave me her contact information. From the beginning, Albena was very responsive and professional. When we spoke, she asked me questions about what I was looking for, who would be photographed, when I'd like to schedule, etc. She shared her Instagram with me and offered several options based on my preferences. Albena was very clear and communicative. I love that! My husband, daughter, and I had an awesome experience with Albena. We've had our photos taken by other photographers before. The three of us agreed. Albena's the BEST! She created games for us to play so that we'd feel comfortable and natural. We scheduled an hour session. We enjoyed ourselves so much that the time went by so quickly. It was so much fun! A couple of weeks ago, we received our digital photos. I was so happy with them that I purchased ALL of them! In my opinion, annual family photos are an extremely important part of documenting our history. I invest in them because I love seeing ourselves through the lens of a professional. I will definitely be scheduling our annual photos with Albena again." Cat A.
"Albena is a wonderful photographer! She made our maternity photoshoot feel really special. She guided us every step of the way, which really helped. This is our first baby and we really aren't used to taking pictures, especially on this level. She made us feel comfortable and really made this a great experience. I am absolutely in love with our photos. Memories!!" Bianca A.
"Albena is fantastic and we feel very lucky to have learned about her through a friend.She has taken our son's newborn photos and has also photographed him (and our family) at ages 6 months, one year, and most recently at two years of age. Each time, she has delivered beautiful photos that have captured my son's personality and our family dynamic really well. She's also super fun to work with. She is warm, kind, funny, and makes you feel at ease. We love her, and so does our son. I think that is reflected in our photos. I honestly could not ask for a better family photographer."
"Albena is such an amazing photographer! Our family had her come to our home to photograph our newborn twins, toddler, myself and my husband. Not an easy task, but we have so many awesome images to capture this special moment in our lives. Albena was prompt, flexible, is reasonably priced, super easy to work with and not to mention a fantastic photographer!"
"Albena made our dream come true both with the maternity and newborn pictures. I didn't know what to wear or what poses to make for the maternity shoot. My partner was skeptical of how to contribute. All we knew is that we wanted the pictures to reflect our love for our baby to be born and for each other. And the pictures did exactly that. Albena and Radostina were punctual, prepared, and flexible to work with lack of ideal lighting. They listened to what we were looking for and the results were exactly what we expected. The newborn pictures are angelical and melt everyone's hearts. Albena was patient, gentle and creative with our little girl. Easy to talk to, great sense of humor and lots of professionalism. It really doesn't get better than that."
