Nesterova Elena

Newborn photographer in St. Petersburg and worldwide

About me

Welcome!
My name is Elena Nesterova.
I am a professional photographer. I’ve taken pictures of everything: weddings, holidays, reporting, subject shooting, on open air, in the studio. As a result, I realized that the photograph of motherhood is mine, which brings me joy and pleasure. I see the special beauty and mystery in pregnancy, the miracle in the newborn, the joy and fullness of life in children up to a year! It’s easy with me and comfortable for you, and for the kids, as the parents say, I have my own special approach.
I will save for you the most valuable moments in the history of your family. Qualitatively, stylishly and with love!

And here are my grown-up clients!

Qualification

For several years I managed to work with many famous people of St. Petersburg, as well as become an advertising photographer for the SKA hockey club. I take responsibility for the quality of my product. And that's why I seriously invest in my business. I shoot with premium technology - full frame Canon 5D Mark IV + Canon 24-70 / 2.8 II lens. All my props are handmade from the best craftswomen in the newborn industry. I also invest in my professional development. My teachers are: Kat V. (Australia, MK in Poland), Igor Sakharov (St. Petersburg, one of the two holders of the international Master's degree in the Russian Federation). I am a member of the League of Professional Photographers of Russia. And I have a European photographer degree from the Federation of European Photographers.

FAQ:

1. How to feed a baby during shooting? Of necessity. If we see that the baby is hungry, we take a break for feeding. 2. Do they really sleep so sweetly? True :) I heat the room with a portable heater to + 28 ° C. The child feels comfortable. To fill the sound background, I use white noise. 3. If the weather is bad, is it possible to make photoshoot ? It’s possible. For modern professional technology, the weather is not a problem! Also for shooting in the evening, I have pulsed light. 4. What happens if baby will be born in the PDB? We just transfer the date to the nearest convenient time. 5. What if a child has flaky skin or have a rash? This is not a reason to cancel the shooting! Nothing wrong with that. Photos will be retouched and the baby will look perfect. 6. What needs to be prepared for shooting? Virtually nothing,because we shoot at home. You will need: disposable diapers, wet wipes, diapers and, of course, a good mood. 7. How do I get photos? Depending on the package: either by reference to the archive with photos on Yandex-Disk or Google-Disk, or when meeting on a USB flash drive. 8. How to pay? We agree on the date of shooting according to the PDB. Prepayment for booking – 2000 rub. In case of cancellation in less than 10 days, the prepayment is not refundable. You can pay by Sberbank card or electronic transfer.

    Лена, наконец-то я добралась написать отзыв о твоём профессионализме! Ждала тебя очень и так рада что в период моей беременности получилось увидеться и запечатлеть этот нежный период моей жизни! Самое для меня ценное что у тебя талант создавать живые , яркие фото, что даже без ретуши они настолько эффектны , что каждую можно в рамку! А ещё с тобой всегда легко и комфортно на съёмке! Спасибо тебе огромное!

    Елена, спасибо вам огромное за фотографии, за то что остались чудесные моменты на память❤ Спасибо вам за бережное и трепетное отношение к малышу, за помощь и подсказки как лучше сделать, за ваш труд и за такой прекрасный результат. Желаю вам процветания в любимом деле! Будем рады обратиться к вам еще!)

    Прошло почти 3 года как Лена снимала нашу дочурку, и сказать что я осталась в тот раз в восторге, не сказать ничего. Поэтому в этот раз ещё до рождения сына, я обратилась именно к ней за повторной фотосессия. Наверно когда ты доверяешь своих малышей в руки одного и того же фотографа, это говорит о многом. Все как всегда профессионально, нежно и с заботой. Лена очень приятный человек и быстро располагает к себе.
