There is something particularly fresh about Nika Shatova's photography. I think it has to do with the soft lighting that hasn't succumbed to the whole vintage-finish trend going on in many photographers' portfolios right now.
Nika Shatova is a Russian photographer who seems to focus mainly on portraits. She specializes on capturing mothers-to-be, couples and babies in particular, according to Whitezine. Pure and simple, her work is all about the subject and his or her connection with the camera.
