Meet Our Team

Katarina Denesova

Photographer

Katarina is a lifestyle photographer who has been capturing families, couples and individuals for the past 6 years. She studied photography in the United Kingdom where she has gained her bachelor's degree in Contemporary Photography. She is an enthusiastic endorser of simplicity & quality over quantity. Photographing life’s special moments, telling a story through a lens, as well as the realization of the emotional impact photographs could have when loved ones are in the frame are just a few reasons why she enjoys her work. When she is not working she spends time with her husband outdoors, travels to faraway places, makes crafty creations come to life, and eats equal amounts of colorful veggies and ice-cream.

 

Heather Robinson

Photographer & Media Coordinator

Heather is a photographer who recently moved here from the east coast. Having specialized in newborn photography for 6 years, she has a ton of experience to offer to our clients here in Folsom. Her passion for photography was born from her father’s love of photography as a hobby. She went to school in Virginia to get her photography degree and began her own business right after graduating. She expanded into doula work, and has since dug into the world of branding photography. When she’s not in the studio she loves to explore new landscapes, hike with her friends and family, dance to live music, and practice yoga on her farm.  

Katie Jarman

Digital Artist & Media Coordinator

Katie's first experiences with photography was going on camping trips with her father & brothers, hiking around and taking panoramic photos of the beautiful southern Utah landscapes. Her love of nature and photography have always gone hand in hand. Since then, she's expanded into commercial photography, graphic design, and other creative mediums. She's been doing creative design work for many years, covering everything from book illustrations, to hand lettering & everything in-between. When Katie's not in the studio, you can find her grubbing around in the garden, or off on an adventure with people she loves. She enjoys fresh cooking, art, live music, and enjoying nature.
