From Our Editors
With a knack for understated hues, a sharp focus, and a vintage finish, Yana trains her camera lens on weddings and portraiture. She artfully navigates outdoor settings, harnessing natural light to the photo session’s benefit as she shoots family portraits among fall foliage and cobblestone walkways. To best represent her subjects, she coaxes natural-looking expressions and incorporates provocative props, such as vintage suitcases or a family’s prized classic car. She also applies her thoughtful vision to portraits of couples and children as well as fashion and modeling sessions, using her ability to turn subjects' bad side and good side into their good side and totally fabulous side.
