Natalya Desene Photography
I grew up in New York City and it's a place I hold near and dear to my heart. I went to University of Colorado at Boulder and studied Business Administration. I've moved over the years and have lived in Connecticut, Colorado, Maine, Australia, and Los Angeles. In 2015 I moved back to Maine to be close to family, the ocean, and to pursue my photography business full-time. Before I took my photography full-time, I managed several projects to fight plastic pollution and climate change in Alaska, South Africa, Panama, Maldives, Paris and Jamaica.

When I'm not documenting the beauty of life, you can find me traveling, doing yoga, skiing, paddle boarding, spending tons of time in nature doing lots of DIY home projects, gardening and hanging out with friends. I currently live in South Portland with my husband and our three dogs.
