Meet Ilona Serchenko

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ilona Serchenko.

Ilona, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
So Ilona Serchenko Photography is a brand new and currently growing business in the area. I always have like photography, since I was a kid. Playing and later teaching competitive tennis has been taking too much of my time up until very recent, therefore, photography was more like a hobby, where I would always experiment on doing either fashion or travel photos just for fun, and for personal memories keepsake.

With the birth of our baby boy Luka on May 26th, 2018 it was like another eye-opening message, maybe it is a great idea if I’ll be taking photos of other families and their loved ones in their most natural and authentic way – Lifestyle Photography! So I had a mirrorless camera before, and in August I decided to take it to another level and investing in DSLR Camera to start building my own portfolio for the website.

In no time, I started getting very busy by meeting and capturing photos of many different families all over the Dallas, and telling their personal story through the eye of my camera! It has been a very fun and joyful story for me so far, and I cannot wait to see what is next year has yet to bring!

Has it been a smooth road?
Of course, each story has some struggles on their road. One of the biggest challenges for me so far was to be able to find a good balance between being a full-time mom and growing the clientele side of my photography business. I still have a lot of learning to do, but I am trying to be taking it one step at a time with an only positive mindset!

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
What Ilona Serchenko Lifestyle Photography Is All About?!

Lifestyle Photography is all about capturing photos in authentic, relaxed, playful, easy-going, and unposed way! It is about capturing, and portraying a real side of You and Your loved ones – #TrueYou! Lifestyle Photography is all about the moments – little candid smiles from mother to daughter, passing high-fives between son and dad, running kids with their furry friends, a sparkly look between the loved ones and so much more!

I strive on creating a relaxed and engaging atmosphere, where I do not want you to worry about anything, but just to come and enjoy your time in the circle of your loved ones, and I will take care of all the details in between! I know, I can’s stop the time, but I am hoping to capture all those little details of you, that once you look back at your photographs years later.

You will be able to go back in those times with the feelings of Your heart! As being a brand new mom myself, I feel like, I can relate with other moms now on a completely different level! And since 95% of the time I end up finalizing all the details with a mom, I make sure to address and accommodate all the possible details, and perhaps challenges me might face!

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Of course with lots learning to be done along the way, and finding a balance between full-time mom, and lifestyle photographer, I see myself expanding on the whole new level, where I will be fitting in travel photography clients, and offering workshops to other clients to share my own experiences!
