Here's a little bit about me...

I am a Christian, a wife and home birthing, unschooling, cosleeping, toddler nursing mama of 3.

I don’t currently own land, but I’m trying to move toward homesteading right in my backyard in San Antonio. I spend most days at home with my kids, and baking bread. I recently even started grinding my own flour! 😍 

I also recently began to really study the Torah and Biblical Feasts with my family and have discovered a culture and history to my faith that has revolutionized the way we live. We now celebrate 7 Annual Feasts and take our Sabbaths on Saturdays (so I don't book Saturday Sessions!) I also have a few backyard chickens and a bunny rabbit!

Before having my own home births, I spent a few years being a birth and postpartum doula which played a huge role in my presence as a photographer and my love for photographing birth and motherhood. 

When you work with me for your portraits, know that I don’t pressure smiles from kids. I look for ways to get to know you and your family so that the expressions are easy and true. I’m playful and excitable- as in, when the light is perfect and y’all are killing it, you’re gonna hear me sing or possibly see me do a little happy dance 😂 

When I photograph your birth, I tend to mirror the energy in your birthing space. If you need encouraging words from me, I give them. If you need silence and focus, I blend right into the background and let you forget that I even came!

I love this work and I love getting to build life-long relationships with my clients. When we work together, it’s a whole experience- not just "click click bye!" 

I’m going to try to connect with you before, during and after our session. And I’m going to make sure that the images you take home are the ones you love most!

“Milena captured such beautiful photos of my family! Milena's friendly demeanor and professional work were exactly what we wanted. I love the way she uses natural light and captures such vibrant color. I thought I only wanted a handful of images but I ordered an album. It was such high quality... I never knew how much I would appreciate a physical copy of each photo rather than having just the digital files.”
