Nestled in the heart of Ukraine, you’ll find a quaint village called “Velykyi Karabchiiv” Khmelnytsyi More than a mere geographical location, this village is a treasure chest filled with my childhood memories. I chose this picturesque setting to create an unforgettable children photography with my 4-year-old son.
Journeying back to Great Karabchiiv was not just a trip, it was a reconnection with my past. This charming village, with its rustic appeal and boundless open spaces, became an enchanting playground for my little boy. However, the experience went beyond his fun-filled frolics.

In the realm of children photography, it’s the unscripted, spontaneous moments that often steal the show. Observing my son interact with chickens, his innocent charm blossomed, giving us heartwarming images that showcase his unique character. Then, as he romped under Ukraine’s vast sky, we harnessed his boundless energy in every shot.
Photographers cherish the “golden hour,” and for good reason. This soft, warm light brought an ethereal quality to the images, showcasing my sons’ playful antics near the hay bales. Also, a real estate agency commissioned these images, so they not only display the property’s rustic charm but also capture memories brimming with personal significance.
