I care deeply about my work, your experience, and the images I capture. What I do makes me smile. On a daily basis. I give my work my all (and then some), pour my heart and soul into it, and lose myself in it.  It’s absolutely exhilarating, and so humbling at the same time, to be entrusted to serve you with my talents,and my hope is to create timeless, authentic images that will fill your heart and your walls and remind you exactly how you felt. For always.                                                   

My name is Ester, I’m a Polish-born, Minneapolis MN based journalistic photographer. And since 2014 I’ve had the coolest job on earth. I get to watch people make out for a living! ;)

I am married (16+years now) to the most amazing guy I know, who believes in me, more than I do sometimes, and brings out the best in me. He’s my world, and my way back to myself when my compass loses North.

If we’re not day-dreaming about our next Europe travel adventure, we’re probably binge-watching Bull (or NCIS), re-watching Harry Potter for the nth time, or trying to keep our crazy Rottie Surly Burly from destroying the house one garbage can at a time. Sarcasm is my love language, and let’s be honest, you probably won’t get most of my jokes - not that that’s going to stop me from trying… 

My passion is to create authentic and natural images that capture you in your element, and I’m a big fan of movement and I’m all about play rather than static and stiff posing. I love creating an environment where you can be you, and the connection between you can overtake the moment for me to capture those real bursts of laughter, the nerdy wrinkle-nose smiles, the sweet hugs, and all the other feels, so you remember just how you felt, even years down the road.

If what you read and the work I share are tugging on your heart strings, welcome to “My Tribe”. Let's connect! — Ester
