Privet, Shalom, Hello!

Welcome to my site! Spasibo (thank you) for taking time out of your busy day to visit! I was born and raised in Ukraine and I’m fluent in Russian, Hebrew, Ukrainian and English. Before I settled in California I had and amazing experience to live in Israel. I guess it was SO amazing because I met there my life partner, best friend and love of my life – my husband. We have three eladim (kids): two boys and a girl.

Here's a little more about me:

                • My name is Nataliya Arditi

                • I live, work and play in Discovery Bay, California 

                • I love wake surfing, cooking, painting, boating, riding my ATV  as much as possible

                • I love animals! 

                • In my spare moments I enjoy the peaceful rides on the Tiki platform

I believe that 

"most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be," 

 - Abe Lincoln

so I look for happiness... and that is exactly what I've found through my photography. My love of photography started when my father got his first Zenit camera (film camera). I was capturing my friends and their surrounding.  With years my skills grew and I decided to take few photography workshops, followed with College photography classes. It took me time to focus on developing skills in the specific area in photography - portraits. I had to learn how to pose people and work with studio and natural lights. 

When I started my business back in 2009 I had no idea the opportunities it would provide me with. I love all the people I meet and the friends I get to see again, celebrating joyous events in life - family reunions, maternity moments, newborn babies, older children, birthdays... whatever the occasion may be. I have loved putting my studies in design & photography to use in a way I dreamed when I was a student. I have striven to provide my clients with the photography services they want (which is why I publish my prices and include digital files with each session) and the comfort in knowing they are supporting a local, legal business.

In this modern world I know you have many choices when it comes to selecting a photographer for your special events in life, so I appreciate my clients (present and future) for your time and the trust you have given me! I love what I do, and I hope that that love is reflected in every image I take.
