As part of our recurring series of interviews, The Power of Her, featuring remarkable women, we are proud to present to you an interview with Valeria Lipovetsky, a mother, a model, a beauty blogger and an inspiration to many young women today.
I stopped putting so much stress on myself to be everything for everyone at all times and that made my life much happier.
Although I loved and still love modelling I always wanted to have more influence and a voice. I think at some point I decided I’m over this “waiting to get picked” type of approach and more about creating my own opportunities.
Social media gives us the stage to do exactly that. You build and talk and film what you want and how you want, I love that.
I was always interested in beauty and decided to bring my years of experience in the fashion and beauty industry to every girl’s mobile device.
Sharing is caring.
PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR PAST & CURRENT PROJECTS AND WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO CONTINUE ON THIS PATH.
Currently I keep investing my time and effort into building my social media, connecting with people and talking about things that matter (and some recommendations for amazing lipsticks too!).
I started diving into the beauty world more and more and this time into the internal aspect and not so much the exterior. I learned that once I took a chance and started talking about things that I’m passionate about like self love, empowerment, self esteem etc., I found my purpose.
Today Im building my brand online thinking about how can I influence these young women to embrace themselves and be happy – it’s not about posting selfies and getting validation from people anymore. This is my modern way of bringing real issues to the table but in a light way. I have so many ideas and opportunities that I can’t wait to bring to life, but in baby steps.
I still do modelling as well so its nice to have a little variety.
WHAT DOES YOUR TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE AND AND HOW DO YOU JUGGLE YOUR BUSY WORK SCHEDULE AROUND BEING A FULL TIME MOM OF TWO ADORABLE BOYS?
I don’t really have a typical schedule because it depends on my to-do lists that day. Sometimes I have modelling jobs, so after dropping my boys at daycare I go to the studio and shoot for 8-10 hours, pikc them up, feed them, zombie play with them and put them to sleep. The days when I don’t model, I drop them off, hopefully get to the gym, then come home and start filming/editing/responding to emails and fan mail, etc.
It’s crazy and time flies by WAY too fast, but I try to take it day by day. I’m aware how lucky and blessed I am to be able to do the things I’m passionate about and to have a family.
Sometimes it’s a shit show, but thats ok, I don’t strive to be perfect. I stopped putting so much stress on myself to be everything for everyone at all times and that made my life much happier.
WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU CREATIVELY AND PROFESSIONALLY, WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
That’s a tough one. All I can say is I have the end goal in my mind and I’m working everyday to get there. I am at a point in my life where I finally feel that I can do anything I set my mind to and I am extremely comfortable and happy with myself – which makes life so much more exciting. So I think I’m on a quest to spread that energy with every person I can – thats the plan!
WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE PHOTOSHOOT IN OUR STIDO WITH DARIA PEREV AND WAS IT SPECIAL FOR YOU?
The photoshoot was wonderful, easy and natural. I loved the creativity the team had and the space just felt so warm and welcoming! Cant wait to come back soon.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mother.
On this Mother’s Day, we are thrilled to share with you this wonderful Mother-Daughter photo session photographed in our studio. These two beautiful women filled our day with laughter and let their connection shine throughout the session. Their photoshoot was fun, full of smiles, chemistry, warm hugs and compliments. It was a great pleasure to work with this duo and we hope to see them again in our studio! Thank you for being our muses!
Enjoy our selection!
We had a very fun day photographing this beautiful family in our studio! Although we sometimes photograph traditional family portraits, we prefer to work in a candid photography style, capturing the most genuine and memorable and moments of warmth and love between siblings and family. We were glad this lovely family could feel relaxed, being themselves and have fun in our studio, allowing us to take these wonderful family lifestyle photographs.
Enjoy our selection!
Being both soft and strong is a combination very few have mastered.
There is no doubt that women are complex creatures. Being a woman embodies many characters at the same time – she can be both gentle and strong, powerful and vulnerable, feminine and masculine. In this creative boudoir photoshoot, our stunningly beautiful returning muse, Miss C, has asked us to capture the different sides of her character – both soft and strong. For the first part of our photo shoot we used gentle pastels, soft tulle and ethereal lighting, using dance and ballet elements. The second part of our photo session was focused on seductiveness and played on contrast and sexiness of our muse. Thank you for being our muse, Miss C!
