My name is Sabina . . . just like Sabrina without the “r.” I was born and raised in Poland during the era when we had to stand in line just to buy toilet paper. I enjoyed my life there until 2001 when I became part of an Au Pair Program, bringing me to my new life in the United States.
For me, though I earned the equivalent of a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Protection Engineering, it was just never my calling. Photography has always been my passion. As a small child, I was fascinated with my father’s old Russian 35mm camera and the mysteries behind taking a moment and holding it forever in a photograph. So in 2004, I began my journey with the purchase of my first DSLR camera, taking my first step into the world of capturing special moments through pictures and using digital editing media to create amazing images to be treasured forever. Since then, not a day has passed that I don’t find myself learning something new and doing all I can to improve my skills as a photographer.
For five years, I ran a successful photography business in Washington D.C. Those years offered me the chance to photograph the wonderful community within the D.C.
In October 2016, my husband and I made the decision to relocate to Colorado so my husband could call it home again. I am now enjoying the opportunities I have to bring my experience and love for photography to the Denver Metro community while helping them create and share their memories.
When I’m not behind the camera, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Rob. Especially when that time together includes long hikes with our dog, Ms.Vernie Wiggle-Bottom. She keeps us busy and reminds my husband and I of the simpler joys in life. I also enjoy the outdoor life, hiking, skating, snowboarding and singing (when no one is listening, of course.)
As a photographer dedicated to giving her very best, I’m thankful to be able to follow my passion, coming to know so many wonderful people and capturing the memories in life that create so much of who they are.
Why do I love photographing pets?
Having come from a pet-loving family, I have always been extremely passionate about animals. Dogs, cats, hamsters, turtles… even stinky little ferrets. You name them, we’ve had them! In 2014, my husband and I adopted a wonderful dog, Miss Vernie Wiggle Bottom, who naturally became my model and partner in photography crime. While revelling in the beauty of the portraits I was creating of our newest family member I realized that despite the fact that pets have always been such a significant part of my life, oddly I had no photographs of the cherished pets of my past, much less beautiful portraits!
In this moment I decided to offer Pet Portraiture to my clients to ensure that we include our “Honorary Family Members” in our most cherished memorabilia.
