I’m Yana, a lifestyle, portrait, and nature photographer

I pick up my camera to find the beauty in the simplest moments

We are all different. Contrary to popular belief there is an individualistic gift that we ALL have. It makes us who we are. No two people are alike. My passion as your photographer is to capture the essence of you. Showing you a different side of yourself that you may have never knew was there, this is what I love to do. Assisting clients to gain further self confidence and stand firm in what makes them authentically different is my primary goal. Motivated to make you smile is a lifestyle.

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, so I have a separate passion for photographing streets and architecture.

Taking pictures of macro (up close) objects is a passion of mine.


Fact 3

Just like with my photography, I enjoy the simpler things in life - being out and about with friends, good food, and nice views.


Fact 4

I love art! It has molded and shaped the person that I am today!
