about me

Hello and WELCOME to my online home! I’m Irena – a Plymouth based boudoir and portrait photographer, and I am passionate about creating captivating portraits for courageous everyday women that allow them see the magic they posses within themselves.

I’m guessing you’ve landed here because you wanted to get to know me a bit better and see whether we would get along while having a good time in the process (I know how nerve-wracking getting in front of someone’s camera can be). So here’s some random facts about me…

As a very quiet teenager, I was addicted to drawing half naked women, making custom clothes for myself (often by ‘borrowing’ my mum’s old clothes and ‘tweaking’ them to fit my figure) and singing Mariah Carey songs (badly!) back to back EVERY day for at least 5 years (my poor mum! If that was my daughter, I would be on a verge of committing a crime after a few days! Luckily, she chose a completely different path).


My way to relax and unwind after a long day is to play with my crazy cat Luna (she loves jumping on doors and following me EVERYWHERE) and binge watch Grey’s Anatomy, MAFS or Grand Designs, speaking of which… my biggest dream is to design and build my dream home in the middle of nowhere that may or may not happen (who knows).

I love being surrounded by nature and couldn’t live without books, music quietly playing before bedtime (and during the whole night!) and a good cup of ground coffee in bed on a lazy Sunday morning.

Accepting that I’m enough is still one of my biggest internal struggles. The older I get, the more in peace I am with myself and my inner world. I know that this is not something that will just resolve itself overnight – it’s a lifelong journey. In the meantime, I keep learning about the person I am today and doing everything I can to become a person I want to be tomorrow.


I believe a lot of women can relate to that, and if I can do anything to help them on their own journey of self-discovery, it would be an absolute honour to be a part of that story. And if that sounds like you, then let me show you how you can fall in love with yourself all over again!

You’re looking for a photographer who will capture your personality, as well as your outer and inner beauty. My clients book me for my ability to ‘get’ who they are. They want to look and feel incredible and want to give themselves a confidence boost. You’re looking for a photographer who will make you feel at ease and who understands your needs – and that’s exactly what I do! A portrait session with me is relaxed and fun, and it will be a great experience, as well as a beautiful memory for years to come.

Your photo shoot is all about YOU having a great time! Whether it’s an elegant beauty portrait photo shoot or a boudoir session – both done either in the comfort of your own home, a studio or on location – I promise you’ll enjoy yourself and leave feeling like a new person.

If this sounds like you, then get in touch to book a consultation.

Let me use my PASSION to capture YOURS! 


kind words

I am extremely grateful!

Irena, what can I say. These images are incredible. I’m welling up with tears. I cannot thank you enough for capturing them. I really have no photos of Florence and me together. You know how life goes. And even though I tell my clients the same all the time, these moments are so precious and fleeting. You’re extremely talented and I am extremely grateful. More than you can ever know. Thank you friend xxx

Irena is an amazing and wonderful photographer, a thorough and detailed business woman, and just a warm and lovely person overall. A true pleasure to work with. I wanted to tell you that I love the pictures, they turned out so so great. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you – they’re absolutely amazing! I would recommend her to everyone and anyone! I can’t say enough good things about her.

I enjoyed the whole experience!

I am so very pleased with the photographs which Irena recently took of me. The photos were taken both for use in my Supporting Artist work and to celebrate my 50th birthday. She made me feel very relaxed and I enjoyed the whole experience. She was very professional. The images I have since seen are wonderful. I feel they capture my personality and a certain something extra.
