Vanja D Photography
After a full day of hefting a bulky Nikon camera around a wedding reception, Vanja Djuric can barely lift her arms. Still, she'd much rather be running around—indeed, often chasing subjects down for the perfect shot—than sitting behind a desk. In fact, Vanja decided to purchase her first DSLR camera immediately after her own wedding, during which she befriended her photographer and new muse. Since then, she's focused her skills through private workshops, shadowing, and relentless practice on friends and family, constantly capturing timeless portraits of families, new couples, infants, and—biceps be damned—newlyweds.
In order to bring out each client's personality, Vanja begins her personal shoots with a consultation, discussing their hobbies and interests so as to cater her approach to her unique subject. Using a mix of natural light and an off-camera flash—and, for newborns, props such as boxes, toys, and stuffed animals—Vanja frames everyone from couples to high-school seniors against the rustic, industrial backdrops of sites such as the old McKinney Cotton Mill. She also shoots family portraits outdoors on the verdant fields of Trinity Park and crafts headshots for aspiring radio broadcasters in front of the graffiti-drenched walls and colored doors of Deep Ellum.
