Nice to meet you!
I am Draga, the artist behind the lens at Front Row Images Inc. I am a Toronto, Ontario-based lifestyle photographer passionate about capturing precious moments of family life.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Photography and Fine Art and a degree as a Professor of Fine Art.
I have been exhibiting my photography work worldwide for the last twenty years. I have lived in Germany, Serbia, and the United Kingdom and have finally found my home in Toronto. I have been living here for the last five years with my husband, James, and two daughters. We love the city of Toronto dearly, its versatile culture, and the beautiful parks and lake.
As a family photographer, my goal is simple - to turn your everyday lives and those precious family moments and milestones into photographs that will serve as an archive of fond memories and important personal landmarks. I want you to have gorgeous family portraits that will even outlive you!
As one of the greatest philosophers, Schopenhauer, said: “ life is a present moment always vanishing.” Let’s preserve these beautiful moments with loved ones and capture the beauty of the moment in this beautiful life.
Using modern phones, we can all take photos all of the time. But unfortunately, we rarely include ourselves in these photographs beyond the obligatory selfie! As a result, we miss out on the magic of capturing togetherness and interaction amongst the whole family.
There is nothing more important than the memories we create.
I would love to be your family photographer to help you capture time.
One of the best experiences I’ve had with a photographer. Laughed so much I had to take breaks in between. For me, Draga takes it to another level with her eccentric personality, talent, and attention to detail. Had a few sessions and one with my four-year-old nephew and it was memorable ❤️
Draga is a beautiful soul—she is professional, creative, and extremely talented! She is very good with children and captures moments I will cherish for life. I will be using Front Row Images for all of my special moments and annual photo sessions. Thank you, Draga!!!
Draga has photographed our family twice now, and we couldn't be happier. Me and my wife have a 2.5 years old daughter and a five years old lab, so it's not easy to get everyone on the same frame! Draga did an excellent job with that. She is very professional, punctual as well as flexible. She was very good with my toddler as well as my dog. The photographs were outstanding. We were thoroughly impressed by her work. She is an outstanding photographer - anyone reading this review, go ahead and hire her.
The thought of having my portrait professionally shot makes me feel nervous and awkward just thinking about it, and trust me; it started that way when Draga started snapping photos. But very, very quickly, Draga’s energy, enthusiasm, and attention eased my nerves, and I dropped my guard and trusted her direction. Her patience in gathering the perfect shot isn’t about “perfection” in the slightest but bringing out an authentic side of myself and capturing genuine natural expressions and parts of myself that I don’t think I could have shown if Draga didn’t have a way to make me comfortable from beginning to end. I can’t say enough how great the experience was, and I hope to do other portraits with my family soon with Draga!
Draga made me feel beautiful at my maternity photoshoot! She got a wide range of great shots, and she seamlessly photoshopped out blemishes on my clothing and people walking by. We are very pleased!
I loved working with Draga. She took the photos to celebrate my son turning one year old. She made us all feel so comfortable, and we had such a fun time. She takes stunning candid photos, and we’re thrilled with how they turned out!
Amazing work by Front Row Images! Artistic but also completely aligned with what we wanted. We couldn’t be more satisfied with a photo experience than this, from start to end. Thank you!
I have had the honor to use Draga on two occasions for photography for my business and I was blown away by her professionalism and creativity to get the perfect shot. Her lively energy and attention to detail produced a number of photos I could use for my website and social media platforms (all of which I have had a number of compliments on). She is a beautiful person inside and out and I’m in awe watching her in her element. I’ve recommended her to friends who have booked with her and to no surprise have had amazing shots. I plan to use her in the future for more business and family photos.
What a wonderful experience! Draga was so fantastic, making us feel comfortable and having fun while taking photos. My daughter loved her; Draga was great at engaging my 3-year-old to look in the camera’s direction. Will definitely be booking another photoshoot!
Draga is a phenomenal photographer to work with. She is so warm and natural. Because she is so natural, here photographs captured our real life as a family with a newborn and didn’t feel posed or forced. These are photos I will always treasure. Draga’s artistic instinct and flair make the sessions a lot of fun - time really flew by for our session. I can’t wait to work with her again soon!
We had a wonderful time with Draga getting some candid family photos in downtown Toronto while on vacation from Alberta. Her energy was infectious and she had great ideas for exactly the kind of photos we were looking for. The pictures will be cherished memories of our time in TO for years to come. Thanks Draga!
Draga was so pleasant. We did our pictures in the midst of freezing winter and a deep pandemic. She was quick and easygoing and knew how to deal with our five-year-old daughter. We did an outdoor session, and it felt like we just did what we wanted, yet the pictures we received were so professional and beautiful. Draga knows how to capture the right moment even when we are not looking. We recommend her as a photographer to everyone we know.
Draga did my professional photo for work and LinkedIn. The session was such a great experience: she advised me on the right colors and shapes to choose for my attire, made me feel comfortable and relaxed, and really took time and effort to get the best shot. The photos look professional and capture my personality. I was really pleased with the outcome and my LinkedIn profile views and contacts from recruiters increased after I posted my new photo:)
It was wonderful working with Draga! She was very cheerful and friendly, and made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot. She made the entire process very easy and provided lots of direction during the shoot. I highly recommended her if you are looking to obtain a professional headshot.
Draga is one of the most immediately kind and affable people I have ever met! She was responsive and flexible with scheduling and worked with us to make sure that everything would go smoothly on the day of the photoshoot. Taking photos can sometimes be an awkward experience, but Draga is good at leaning into that and made the whole thing a blast--our single biggest takeaway was that the shoot was so much more fun than we were expecting, and it really showed in the absolutely gorgeous photos. If you're looking for a photographer, I can't recommend Draga enough! Our family is a bit unconventional but Draga made us feel comfortable and able to be open at all times.
You will have a fun and memorable photo shoot.
