Well, I'm Arastasia, but most people call me by a nickname they've formed. These days I get "Artsy Airy" a lot! I am hyper, emotional, empathetic, and my brain is truly a big ball of chaotic creativity (in the best way possible!!) I've been a professional photographer for quite some time now, and in addition to my photo skills, I'm also a painter and mural artist!
I become friends with all my clients, because I freaking LOVE them and I LOVE people! I truly am a lovely mix of fierce business woman that can chat marketing and strategy all day long combined with a bubbly free spirit who just loves to see people smile and get lost in photography & art.

In all of my elementary school journals, my answer to "What do you want to be when you grow up?" was always "a photographer."
I started photography jobs right out of high school, but always knew the goal was to own my own business. In 2014 I quit my marketing job, to finally pursue photography full time.
I did things a little unconventionally, and moved to South Carolina, where I had no connections or biz-owner experience. My passion & drive, mixed with photography skills & artistry, are what fueled my success, and made me the passionate business that I am today.
In 2019 I won Cleveland Scenes "Best Photographer in Cleveland" and cried A LOT of happy tears.
I whole heartedly love my career, and my passion only grows stronger.
Life is good.
