The world needs

Based in London, UK & Prague, CZ

My mission is to empower incredible women like you to share their authentic self through powerful and feminine photography. You might not have the time, or perhaps the confidence, to shine a light on your passion, your spark, your superpower... I get it. I know what that feels like.

As a Personal Brand Photographer and Mentor, I am here to help reveal your uniqueness and your essence that capture the heart of your audience. Wherever your path has brought you today, I want to celebrate you and support you on your journey to tell your story and shine.

She captured the essence of me

Petra made me feel really comfortable. I usually feel quite anxious when having my photo taken, but she did a fabulous job of complimenting me and making me smile throughout the process.

Despite being very professional, Petra always has a smile on her face and an easy-going manner. The finished product was amazing, I think she captured the essence of me, which takes a photographer who isn't only technically proficient but sensitive and artistic too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for brand photoshoots.

I found  the whole experience empowering

Essentially, I was tired of taking selfies and wished to have professional photos on my social media accounts. I loved my photo shoot with Petra and her laid back, calm and fun approach. She made me feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. I found the whole experience empowering and incredibly enjoyable!!

I love my natural look in the photos

I was overwhelmed when setting up my new business and was busy preparing my website. I was grateful to be able to reach out to Petra and received so much help with overall concept planning, location suggestions and styling tips. I am extremely pleased with the results, especially with the unusual window portraits! I love my natural look in the photos and have to say, I feel beautiful as well! Thank you Petra.

My session with Petra was so impactful

I’m a personal trainer and following client feedback I became aware that my pictures didn’t match the positive, smiley person they knew! I decided to contact Petra following a friend’s recommendation. She is so easy to talk to and was happy to show me the incredible captured images throughout the shoot! 

Before meeting Petra, I possessed a limiting view of what a ‘great picture’ looked like. My session with Petra was so impactful that I’ll be booking her again to take some lifestyle images so my clients know who they are buying into. I am so excited to work with her again and cannot recommend her highly enough!
