Hello, my name is Iva, I am a full time professional photographer with a background in economics and marketing.
My interest in photography started over thirty years ago when listening to my dad explaining the dial buttons on our old Zenith camera to my older sisters. It didn't make any sense to me but I was still intrigued. In my late teens I saved up for my first 35mm SLR and spent hours developing my own black and white photos in an improvised darkroom in my bathroom. I then spent a few years travelling and photographing the world whilst working as a photographer for Holland America Cruise Line and finally settled in Great Britain where I focused on wedding and family photography.
After the birth of my two children, I realised the importance and beauty of baby, children and family photography and how vital it is to capture life’s most precious moments. In order to spend more time with family, I moved back to Croatia and settled in a quiet area of Zagreb where I opened Iza Objektiva Fine Art portrait studio.
For me, the most important moment in photography is to build connection and trust. I am not comfortable being photographed myself and I understand how intimate it is to allow yourself into the hands of a photographer. I try to keep sessions informal and hope to nurture a relaxed atmosphere.
My studio is not just a space with a backdrop and lots of scary lights. It has a comfortable corner for you to relax and look out on the beautiful views of Medvednica while your children are being photographed. There are toys and books for your children to take a break if it all becomes a bit overwhelming.
After every session, I spend hours on my computer editing and enhancing the photos. I love following and discovering new trends in digital retouching and photo editing. I also allocate a lot of my time learning and getting inspired through courses and tutorials by my favourite photographers in the field of children and family photography.
