Martina Smolova Photography is specialized in natural light, modern fine art portraiture photography - Maternity, Newborns, Infants, babies, Toddlers, and Children and as well Teens, Couples, Engagements.
I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, former Czechoslovakia, Europe. I am a college graduate with a degree in Administrative Business and Accounting, and I have a Certificate in International Business from Berkeley, California. While I was in college, I worked as a personal nanny caring for babies and toddlers in clients' homes ( USA, Austria, Israel, Germany ) and studied foreign languages and culture.
After acquiring my business certificate, I went on to train as a Postpartum doula, satisfying my first love of nurturing newborns. Helping Moms and families through the postpartum period is very rewarding.
My work is my passion! I love babies and children. It gives me enormous satisfaction to earn the trust of babies' and become a part of their lives. Newborns are the most precious subject in the world. At the same time, I love photography... Capturing special moments of our lives and our surroundings.
As a professional Postpartum Doula/ Newborn Care Specialist certified in 2007 (www.BabyNIghtDoula.com)and now as a Photographer, I feel fortunate to work in this field that is so full of life and love. To be able to capture all of these moments in their young lives - capturing newborn's wrinkled skin, adorable yawns, toddler's first steps, belly laugh, moments of different milestones, is the most beautiful feeling!
