​Natiya creates a relaxed environment where the real you can be explored and photographed. Her playful spirit is infectious and it produces unique and beautiful shots. She has a way of shooting people in nature that is no less than stunning.

Natiya is a beautiful human being and stellar photographer.  I know this to be true, since I was fortunate enough to work with her.  Natiya clearly saw something in me I could not detect.  She has this soft unique way about her when she photographs.  She was welcoming and oozed with kindness, which immediately put me at ease.  When she combines her soft demeanor with her acute eye for style, she emanates immense creativity as a photographer.  As a result, she captured just the right shot for the cover of April’s issues of OM Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine.

Natiya shot some awesome photographs that I used for my Thai Massage courses and instructional materials. Her pictures captured the essence of the moment beautifully. She came up with creative solutions to issues we has in the space and with the light, and delivered amazing results.
