Feel free to add me as one of your contacts but don't take it personal if I don't add you back right away because Im having problems keeping up with the contacts i do have currently as it is. Also, just a warning that if you don't have anything available for me to view, don't have an icon or you're creepy, I'll most likely block you.
A little background about me.....
My name is Natalia and i am a mum to a gorgeous lil girl and a cheeky lil boy. I am based in Wellington, NZ.
About how i started off pursuing photography as my passion....
When my daughter was born I've discovered my passion for photography and my love and passion grew along with her. I invested my money on my very first Digital SLR, my Nikon D70. And boy, was i surprised! I have soo much to learn!
I'm definitely hooked and as a mum i want to capture as much as possible of my daughter growing up so i can look back at my photographs and say 'remember when'...
As a wife, a mommy, a photographer and also with a full time job....sometimes i struggle to juggle everything and im trying hard to find the right balance in my life.
I love capturing babies, children and the love of a family, which is why my main business & website is a portrait photographer.
However, around xmas 2007 i gave myself a macro lens as a xmas pressie and im totally hooked....can't stay away from it and you will see a change in my stream and as you can see it is now full of macro stuff...pretty much taking over my entire stream nowadays :P
I come across Flickr while researching more ways to use my first SLR and i'm very inspired by the great photographs I've seen here on Flickr.
I love how there are so many very talented photographers here and i'm hoping to learn more from this site.
I hope you enjoy flicking thru my photostream and if you like what you see please leave a comment.
Sigma 105mm/2.8 macro

"Natalia makes magic with a camera. I've been here about a year and from the very early days, I've followed her stream closely. She has a beautiful eye for naturey crap, macro, and portraits of her beautiful daughter. She's definitely a flickr icon, and her work is deserving of all the attention it gets - every image is carefully crafted and exquisitely processed.
Thanks, Natalia, for your beautiful work...it's a rich source of inspiration for many!"

"Absolute perfection. That is what I think when I look through Natalia's stream. Her work is beautiful and so filled with delicious light! Everything she touches is pure magic. Whether it is portraits or nature shots she captures moments of pure beauty. Even a photo of a fly looks gorgeous!! She inspires me and many many other photographers here on Flickr. She is true Flickr royalty :D Love you girl!! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us.

"I noticed that alot of people that wrote testimonials for Natalia called her their inspiration.
I too am counted as one of them.
From almost day one on Flickr when I saw one of her images I was hooked. It may have been a waterdrop shot, which is why i started shooting waterdrops. But her shots aren't "just waterdrops". There is a simple elegance to them, always well composed and full of beautiful color.
And then there's the gorgeous self portraits and photos of her little girl, all of them creative and enchanting.
You would think someone who is as popular on Flickr, with so many contacts and 5000 unread Flickr mails, wouldn't have the time or energy to visit many streams. But she does, and always leaving fun comments to boot!
I consider myself very fortunate to have found your stream Natalia, and you truly are my inspiration! I am sure one day, I will see you famous.....and I will say "I knew her when!!"
Thank you for sharing your beautiful visions with us!

"Natalia's work is simply stunning, every image she uploads is brilliant. She masters many different types of photography from macro to portrait. All of her images have perfect composition, amazing colours , awesome bokeh and great use of dof.
As stated in the testimonial below mine. I too hunt for Natalia's images within my contacts photos. Constantly looking forward to what I am about to be amazed with.
Besides her obvious talent in photography Natalia is also a very kind and caring person. Willing to answer my questions even though she has something like 2000 unread Flickr Mail messages.
Well done and thank you. I am looking forward too viewing many more of your beautiful images"

"Natalia never ceases to amaze me in the work that she produces! Whether it is a portrait, a droplet, or a snail, her images always tell a story that has a way of grabbing my attention! In fact, when I click to view my contacts, I always search to see what SHE has posted before looking at anyone else's images! (shhh, don't tell anyone)
Natalia, you are such an inspiration, and I thank you so much for sharing your view on life with us, both in images and in words! You have a refreshing way of expressing yourself, my friend!
Now turn off your computer and go capture some more great images!!
In awe of your creations,

"Where to start...
Beauty. That's a good word to start this with. Kiwi_GaL's photography captures absolute, breathtaking beauty like none other. She has a way with light and color that captivates, fascinates, and invokes wonderful blissful emotion. I truly look forward to seeing her uniquely vibrant nature shots on a daily basis. Her work is easily among my favorites on Flickr or anywhere else!"

"I'm not ashamed to say that I first visited Natalia's stream because I saw her beautiful face on one of her portraits. I stayed because her skills mean she has an amazing portfolio. From flowers to weddings. From children to liquid sculpture. Fun and serious both.
This lady can turn her hand to any genre and rock it."

"Well what can I say?? Not only is Natalia a wonderful children's photographer, but she always creates the most amazingly beautiful flower macros. Now, you might think flower macros have been overdone, but wait til you see HERS. Pure beauty and STUNNING artistry and a completely unique way of capturing flower macros. Beaaaautiful!"
23rd January, 2008
"Natalia is a constant source of inspiration to me, and I have to say frustration too, because every time I think my own photography is improving she comes out with something that leaves me for dust! Her productivity is amazing for someone who has a full-time job and a small child. Natalia is also a very generous person and taken the time to answer a barrage of questions and give helpful advice. Thanks!"
