Hi! I'm Nina, a painter, photographer, writer, & Certified Self-Love Coach living in Connecticut. I am newly married to my best friend and we own our first home together with a high energy boxer named Baxter & our beloved feline, Cookie. We both love to travel & as photographers, aim to spread positivity as much as we can. I received a BFA in Graphic Design & Fine Arts from University of Bridgeport in 2017 & have been a Certified Self-Love Coach through The Self-Love Lifestyle with Melanie Monaco since 2021.
I also enjoy the occasional video games, exploring new places, trying new hobbies like planting, and practicing my Spanish. Who knew it could be your first language & STILL become lost, ha! But honestly, I love being able to experience & I'm grateful for a life to do so.
I am grateful for the emotional support of some of the friends I've considered family. Because of them I am strong enough to be able to share my story and be able to support other humans who felt their voice weakened consistently, or have struggled with being able to take up space. I have struggled, as the first born daughter, with living under this guise as a parent since I could remember. I lived to please my parents & jumped to every will so I can have some kind of worth. Having an absent father, I led in my masculine energy almost all of my life & am learning to accept all parts of me & heal the wounds that have been patched up. In other words, I know what it means to be too independent.
I have learned that you need to be kinder to yourself and be your own ultimate hype girl, because if you don't believe your power, who the fuck else will? This is why I do what I do. This is why I've started to share my voice, my story and hold space for other humans to be able to live freely in abundance of self-love & banish low self worth! I'm here to guide you through your Confidence Transformation!
...enough to make you feel safe & heard. I would recommend Nina to anyone looking for a way to tap into their creativity as a way to self-soothe and anyone who struggles with self love."

…It feels so natural and safe, I feel I can truly just be myself and let myself aspire in my creativity while having fun! You're professional but so kind and loving that it is like working with a long time friend. You inspire me every time to reach and go further with my visions and goals, I never feel like I'll be judged or misguided with you. You create such a safe space for your clients and that you really let others creativity and potential come out and flourish.”

…The biggest issue I was facing was money mindset and self doubt. I followed through on plans that we spoke about and I felt more self confident and sure of myself going into the day. Nina is your go to hype girl!" - Madelaine W
Working with you is a spiritual, magical experience. How you combine both of your powers is beautiful, I truly enjoy that it’s not just a photo session, but more than just an image. You’re doing amazing work at making people feel comfortable in their skin.” - LexI F
