About ME

Hi! My name is Karina and I'm a boudoir and portrait photographer.

I'm Russian-speaking Latvian living in Ireland (haha, don't try to comprehend it!).

I'm a mom to 3 children, but I totally suck at parenting. After ending a very toxic marriage, I'm now happy to have the most amazing man in my life (who, I reckon, also sucks at parenting), but somehow together we make a great family. Family, that means the world to me. Although every other day I dream of being single :))

I've been pole-dancing for ages and don't plan to stop soon. It's my form of meditation, my drug, my love.

AND LOVING OURSELVES THROUGH THAT PROCESS
IS THE BRAVEST THING THAT WE WILL EVER DO.”

All I am and all I have is the result of hard work. I don't believe in luck, magic, God and other supernatural. I believe in good vibes and that kindness always pays off. And that dreams are achievable if you turn them into plans, no matter how scary it is. Just go for it!

It overwhelms me how we, women, are terrified of being unacceptable. Too fat, too skinny, too old, too pale, too ugly, too weird... Crazy, right? 
Well, this is the main reason why I specialize in contemporary boudoir photography. If I can help one woman at a time to let go of her fears and just be, it means everything to me. 
Wanna doll up and act weird? I love that! Wanna come as you are and bare yourself because your wrinkles and scars tell your story? You go, girl!

At Kamuart Photography, as a female photographer, I pride in offering a safe place where you can be YOU. No fears, no apologies.

I love working with women who are fun, easy-going, open-minded and wild at heart. Who work hard to get where they want to. Who aren't snobs. Who value art and everything that goes into creating it. Who want this experience for THEMSELVES, not to please somebody else. 

Strong, independent, badass women who dare, are my dream clients.

my motto

“Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”

"We went in with a loose theme of comfortable physical connection and touch but with volatility of desire to be so entwined. The shots we've gotten back are just phenomenal and 100% reflect our intention."

Kathrine W. & Marcin M.

"Had amazing makeup. Someone who understood my skin tone. Felt relaxed, not conscious. Karina knew exactly how to style me. Gave me a little more confidence. Was an amazing photo shoot, with a beautiful portrait for me to frame at the end. Would definitely book again."

experience with me

how is the photoshoot

I started photography many years ago, shooting anything and everything I was paid for. And, (surprise!) eventually, I got so sick of it, I couldn't look at my camera anymore. Years later I realized that only true love and passion for what you do will result in a great product. And that moment I stopped offering anything I didn't like to shoot.

Instead, I invested in the best mentors in the fine art photography industry. Learning lighting, posing, styling, high-end retouching and everything else portraiture and boudoir, was super exciting. Studying the business of photography and how to provide outstanding customer service was an eye-opener.

I share my love between shooting sensual portraits and dancers. My other passion is to give my clients the best experience they could wish for. Something they will remember forever.
