Violeta Kids Photography
* * *
How it all started
I started volunteering as a photographer at my kids's school during a yearly fundraiser event. I would set up a studio and do glam shots for all the performers. I loved their freedom to pose and how they could be ridiculously confident in front of the camera. It was just fun and easy to shoot with them.

In the fall of 2019, I got a Studio and starting working with kids in a fun and creative way. I don't follow rules or a formula, I create based on what I see. I plan my light and set up based on the colour or texture of a fabric or the personality of my subject. That's why all my creative shoots are different.
Ashton was the very first client that came to my Studio in 2019. See his photos below.
