Professional family photography in Melbourne

Family lifestyle and portrait photography by Yana Klein.

Hello, I’m Yana Klein, a Melbourne-based professional family photographer.

My work is inspired by people. I love to capture the natural, divine and ever-changing aspects of mothers, fathers, families, babies and children.

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 speaks to me for many reasons. No two images are ever the same and each is deeply personal. I feel honoured to share special moments with my subjects and photograph them in their natural state, without pretence, staging or artificial light.

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

I find photos come up best when each of the subjects is at ease; the less contrived the better. This belief fuels much of my approach to family lifestyle photography. I place a great deal of care and attention in creating a relaxed environment for all 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.
