Milena was so accommodating and she took shots of raw and candid moments. My birth photos are so precious to me in so many ways. She really captured moments that I didn’t really understand how profound they were until I saw the pictures. She knows the moments that need capturing and has an amazing eye!
— Karen C. | Birth Client
We love the candid moments Milena catches- she captures the dynamics of our family. We also really like some of the special little extra touches and can’t wait for our next milestone to celebrate so we can plan another session!

Milena’s friendly demeanor and professional work were exactly what we wanted. I love the way she uses natural light and captures such vibrant color... I never knew how much I would appreciate a physical copy of each photo rather than having just the digital files. Thank you so much for capturing our family’s love!

hello. my name is milena.

Here is where I tell you about me and what you can expect from us working together. I am a lifestyle photographer based in San Antonio, TX.

I am an artist and an optimist. I like people. I like being around them and seeing them- especially seeing the secret specialness and beauty about them that might not be so obvious to everyone. I am a people watcher. Some people find that weird, but I promise not to people watch you in a way that is awkward.


I like to get to know my clients before every session, so I will always try to meet you in person before we photograph your session. I also believe photos are meant to be displayed. I know grandma is going to want a copy of these images too, so I always give my clients a digital copy of anything they print, but this is my guarantee that you walk away from an experience with me with a finished product so you can keep coming back for more. I don’t want to give you the same things every other photographer gives. Let’s face it, you have a TON of choices for photography so you choosing me is deeply honoring to me, and not something I take lightly. Therefore, I strive to put together an experience and product options that are not the same as everyone else’s and are right for your family’s unique needs.

My work is emotive. I generally prefer natural light but I am comfortable using flash when necessary (especially at births). Motherhood and children are some of my favorite subjects and are currently the subjects that engage me most.


A little insight on me:

  • I have been married to the love of my life since 2011; he's an incredible hiphop artist and you should check out his music! (IG: @tracethekidmusic)

  • I work from home and have 2 of the ca-YUTEST kids you have ever seen in your life

  • Motherhood has created in me an insatiable need for caffeine. I never liked coffee before, but now it’s basically a love language to bring me an almond milk mocha! Chocolate + Coffee = love

  • I used to be a birth and postpartum doula, so mommies and babies are my zone and I can talk about birth, babies, breastfeeding and all things surrounding mom-life for hours

  • I try to be Keto, but I fail a lot

  • I am pretty crunchy but I don't raise chickens or have a backyard garden yet... but I do believe that prayer on top of essential oils can fix most things, along with elderberry syrup and coconut oil.

  • I plan to homeschool my tiny humans when the time comes and I need all the mom friends I can find! Some of my favorite friends are my clients!

  • I recently became an admin in a local facebook group dedicated to helping moms learn to use their DSLR cameras. I would love to help you if you need it, just reach out!
