Project - Latvian Nomad Portrait

Latvian Nomad Portrait Project has been growing in my heart for some time. My goal is to photograph Latvians abroad - create series of proffesional portraits of people who are proud of their Latvian roots, people who may no longer speak the language, or people who visit their homeland frequently. Portrait collection would be in an online gallery, possibly creating a book in a future.

latvian Nomad Portrait

Latvia is approaching its 100 year anniversary and at various times and turmoils in its history Latvians have found themselves away from their home country, yet their love for the small country on the Baltic Sea remains strong.

I've  lived in United States  for almost two decades, and have met Latvians with different paths that have brought them away from Latvia. With this project I hope to capture portraits that reflect the people who call themselves Latvian.

I am based in Michigan and would like to start in my home state however as I travel, I'd like to reach out to other communities as well. If you are Latvian and would like to find out more about this project, set up a portrait session please contact me at latviannomad@gmail.com , connect of Facebook or Instagram.

I also invite my fellow Latvian Photographers abroad to join me in this project -  create professional portraits of Latvians abroad. Please use #latviannomad on Instagram or tag me @latviannomad

Personal Branding Portrait

You can create a credible brand by staying true to who you are. - Hilary Sawchuk.

Strong and Beautiful

Strong and Beautiful

I love working on personal branding sessions because I get to capture someones story. A story they want to tell to the world. There is so much raw power in these stories.

So here is a beautiful story of Caroline, who also happens to also be my coach. Her story is one of personal growth through guidance, vulnerability and finding your strength from within.

While Caroline is a daily motivator for keeping up with the fitness goals to those she coaches, she also leads by example, and shares her own struggles and challenges. Through this vulnerability she has found an amazing way to connect with people.  So her portraits show more than her fitness brand. They tell her story - story of grace, of vulnerability, of strength and of living your passion.
