Meet Queens Photographer at Brilianna Photography
Hello and welcome to Brilianna Photography! I’m Irina Babakhanov, the woman behind the camera who can’t wait to create the next piece of incredible artwork for you to treasure in your home, featuring you and your beautiful baby. I started my career by earning a degree in accounting and finance. Throughout my college days and my younger years, photography was not even on my radar – I just snapped pictures with friends here and there like everyone else.
Then I became a mom, and everything changed. I began to want to preserve every moment I could of my kids’ first days because I know that they would be only a memory before I knew it. I started to recognize the incredible potential of photography to capture the amazing yet fleeting days of pregnancy, and the first days and months of a baby’s life. As every mother knows, those are moments you never get back, and my passion for preserving those memories in a luxury, timeless fine art style truly took off.
That’s when I decided to build a photography career. I dove head-first into classes and specialized training in safely handling and posing newborn babies for newborn photography. I took on mentors who were at the top of their field and learned everything I could from them while I continued perfecting my craft. In 2013, I took the leap – I quit my full-time job and opened my own photography studio specializing in fine art maternity, newborn, and baby photography.
Today, as a mom of three gorgeous girls whose names combine to form the name of my studio, I’m proud to use my artistry, in-depth training, and years of experience to provide your growing family with luxury photography that will truly highlight the magic of these precious stages of life.
