Hello there,

I am glad you are here!

While I want my photographs to tell you everything you need to know about me, I understand if you wish to learn more.

So, here it is;

I live in Chicago, love coffee dates( come, have one with me ), good books ( I am reading The Love Song for Ricki Wilde by Tia Williams as of today ), and traveling with friends near and far. 

As you probably already figured, I also love photographing people. I love to capture their personality, learn what makes them smile, or just be themselves. I appreciate, love, and work for these tiny moments.




I have worked with Violetta several times over the past couple of years and the experience has never been short of amazing!  Her energy and enthusiasm helps me feel comfortable so I can just focus on having fun behind the camera.   I always feel open, inspired, and at my absolute best at every booking!  She has a great eye and provides easy direction and great cues for capturing a beautiful profile and flattering angle.



For more than ten years of knowing and working with Violetta, no former or past staff members have ever been so exceptionally qualified as a professional photographer.

Not only is she proficient as an artist and photographer, but Violet’s work ethic, tenacity, creativity, and perfectionist personality are beyond all the many employees and students that I have had for the past 45 years as a professional photographer.



I can't imagine feeling more comfortable with a photographer, being more at ease in my skin, or having such a blast with anyone other than Violet. Her amazing energy calms you down but focuses you all simultaneously. We have worked on many projects together, and it's safe to say she always exceeds my expectations and blows me away with her photographs. Violet gets my vision and manages to transform it into something beyond my wildest dreams. She is not only an outstanding
