Describe your business in 25 words or less?

I am a natural style family photographer, working inside and outdoors using natural light.

I specialise in family and children’s portraits.

Where did you live and what did you work at before you came to
Hong Kong?

I was born in Moscow where I spent my childhood. In my teens, I moved to the UK where I lived for nearly 20 years before moving to Hong Kong 5 years ago.

In the UK, I worked as a solicitor and a chartered HR specialist.

Do you remember the first time you made a sale?

I remember it very well!

My first client got in touch with me, literally minutes after my website went live and I still remember how very happy and proud that made me feel.

As a home business, where’s the weirdest place you’ve taken a
work call?

I spend a lot of time with my kids and travelling, so sometimes I end up speaking to my clients at playgrounds, swimming pools and airports.

What would you say is the worst idea you’ve ever had when it
comes to your business?

Trying to do too many things at once!

What do your kids think about their Mom being an entrepreneur?

They absolutely love it and are always happy to model for me.

My youngest says that she wants to take photographs like Mummy when she grows up.

Tell us one interesting thing about you that most people may not

In my teens, I climbed out of my window from the second floor using sheets when my Grandma locked me in my room to finish my homework!

What would be your karaoke song of choice?

Any song by Amy Winehouse.

I love Svetlana’s pictures – so natural and real. She doesn’t just take pictures, she captures memories.

I am lucky enough to call Svetlana a friend as well as a fellow Momtrepreneur and I know that the woman behind the camera puts her heart into the pictures she takes.

So ladies, if Svetlana can do it, so can you. If you have always wanted to run your own business – Go for It, take that next step!
