Her work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year International, NPPA's Best of Photojournalism and the Society of News Design.
She has served as a juror for photography and design awards for the Overseas Press Club, American Photography 37, and NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism.

Natalia was drawn to editing while an assistant to photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb as they developed longform visual narratives through book publishing. Though she has focused on digital storytelling for most of her career, she retains an appreciation for the tactile experience of photography books and aims to apply that thoughtfulness to her everyday work.
