Hello, I’m Yana Klein, a Melbourne-based portrait and lifestyle photographer.

My work is inspired by people, their personalities, connections, emotions and behaviours. I seek to find the beauty in mundane, everyday little things. I strive to capture the hardly ever noticeable glimpses and gentle touches. My aim is always to encapsulate the real emotions, genuine feelings and true personalities of the people I photograph. The end result is a picture that reflects who the subject is at that particular time.

Family lifestyle photography has my heart for many reasons. No two images are ever the same and each one is deeply personal. I feel honoured to share special moments with my subjects and photograph them in their natural state, without pretence.

My style entails certain features of portrait photography but has a strong focus on the raw elements of life, light, nature and the connection between the subjects.

I find that the best photographs are the ones captured when you are at ease.  This fuels much of my approach to family lifestyle photography. I place a great deal of care and attention in creating a relaxed environment for everyone involved. I like to tap into innate qualities and have them echo through the images in the most sincere way possible.

We can arrange for the session to be held anywhere in Melbourne – your home, a favourite outdoor spot or a special indoor location. I use natural light to ensure the images accurately reflect the organic beauty of the subjects and the setting.
