The experience cannot be put into words! We felt like we have been friends with Yana for ages; instant comfort! The photographs were also beyond words and such a perfect momento of our life in Melbourne. I know I keep saying “there are no words” but that truly is the case. I can’t speak highly enough of Yana’s work. She has an amazing eye and is simply an amazing artist and photographer!

Yana has taken our family photos for the last 5 years. She is an absolute pleasure and always makes my little girls feel very comfortable. The quality of the photos are absolutely exceptional and my favourites are always the candid ones, very natural. I was very sad to see her to go to Australia, but am extremely happy that I was lucky enough to get the photos I did. Thank you Yana.

Working with Yana was for our maternity photo shoot was brilliant. My partner and I are no good with camera’s around – he blinks every time and I tend to make faces or squint, and we both tend to look nervous and awkward. This time was the exception! Yana had us at our ease early on and due to this managed to capture some amazingly candid and loving pictures – I didn’t know we could look so good! She has the patience of a saint and so easy to be around. We will be working with her again and recommending her to all. Very professional, easy to work with, good fun, great pictures.

Yana was great. The kids loved her especially as she gave them flexibility in choosing where to take the photos. She has communicated every step of the way and delivered the final product in a fast efficient manner. I look forward to using her again in the new year.

Yana was brilliant from the first conversation right through to the delivery of the photos! She patiently answered all my questions, helped with everything from prop ideas to outfit selection, and on the day she couldn’t have been more easy going and fun! She made us all feel at ease and enjoy the experience! The photos we got really were a great reflection of the day and will adorn our walls for many years to come! I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Yana! I can’t wait till you can record more of our family’s moments! Anyway, thanks again!

What can I say. Yana is amazing! We had a photo shoot booked for the park but it ended up raining! I really wanted the photos done so in my cramped little house and babies who couldn’t sit unaided but happily army crawl away she made it work! She captured Amelia and Max perfectly and such beautiful candid shots! I am beyond happy and cant wait to get her to capture more beautiful memories of my children.

The day of the photo shoot with Yana was one of the highlights of my pregnancy experience. Mornings are cold in October in Toronto, but Yana’s warmth made me forget about it and melt into the fall’s sun. I don’t find posing for photos an easy task, because I normally “try too hard”, and never recognize myself on the pictures after. No posing was required with Yana. I felt totally comfortable with her being myself and embracing my pregnancy. As a woman, and a mother, she managed to connect with me on the deepest level and capture my “glow” in its best shades. Her choice of setting perfectly matched the mood and contributed to the overall harmony. When she sent me one of the preview photos, I was not just pleasantly surprised with what I was seeing – I was fascinated with the picture that reminded me of a painting. To my further surprise, this was not even the best one from her collection. Most importantly, I did not simply recognize myself – I LOVED myself in them. Half a year after I gave birth to my son, I look at these photos, and I smile to that glowing pregnant woman that I was. Forever thankful.

Yana is very creative and professional in her approach. During the photo shoot, Yana listened to our thoughts and ideas and used her professional photography skills to turn our ideas into something very special. We couldn’t be happier with Yana’s service, and the end product is more than we ever could have hoped for. Thanks Yana.
