I am fascinated by how photographs can tell a story.


I love capturing stories, intimate & special moments while having fun and creating beautiful images.

I focus on capturing people in their essence & candid moments that you can feel something every time

you look back at the images.

While shooting, I will be chasing for authentic moments, raw emotions, real smiles & people having a big laugh.


Most of the people I work with say I have a very calm but cheerful personality, so if you are shy behind the camera,

I will try to make you feel comfortable and relaxed so we can create epic memories together!

This Woman is a artistic magician! She has a gift of capturing moments of magic, those spaces in between, seeing the unseen. My experience of working with Mili has been professional and pleasurable. I have complete trust in her and her ability to read what is needed for the intention of showcasing particular themes to be shared. I've worked with Mili numerous times on my Feminine Arts journeys and the photos that came through people were in awe of. Women felt beautiful and empowered with the way she captured their essence. 

Thank you Mili.

“Mili was an incredible part of our day and we could not have asked for a more perfect photographer.

Mike and I asked for lots of candid photos of us and all our guests, we wanted the photos of our wedding to capture the essence of our day filled with all the joy, laughter and emotion that

comprises the best day of your lives.

Mili delivered this so so perfectly! We now have a collection of photos that we will treasure forever and cannot thank Mili enough!! She so seamlessly fitted into our day and has captured all the little moments, love and beautiful memories better than we ever imagined.

Thank you Mili!”.
