Yana is an all around rockstar. We understood each other from the get go and she is so thorough and put-together that I didn't have to worry about a thing on the day. It was really lovely to know that I had someone who understood who we were as a couple (goofy as heck) and the kind of photos I was hoping for. Yana made our day really special and low-stress, and the photos came out beautiful!! I can't recommend her enough. More...

Yana did a great job in capturing our wedding. Our wedding photos are gorgeous and I’m so happy I can look back and cherish the memories in the photos. She was very easy to talk to, answered all my questions, listened to all my needs as a bride and was very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Yana for your special day! More...

We were able to get so many great shots that looked really natural, and that is not easy for me to do in photos normally. She is so easy to chat with during a shoot and communicates what she needs for great pictures . Yana brings a good mood and pleasant disposition to a shoot, too. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxed photoshoot. I would recommend her for a shoot any day! More...

Yana took such beautiful photos that we hung two of her prints on our bedroom wall. In fact, I’m looking at them right now! One is a close up that wonderfully captured both of our personalities and mood, and the other is landscape portrait showing us in the beautiful natural surroundings we chose for the day.

She’s great to work with and you’ll treasure the photos for years to come - we have!

In planning my wedding, I was dreading the photography part because both my (then) fiance and I were not used to getting our pictures taken. Then comes Yana to save the day!! She really made the whole picture taking experience not so intimidating. She’s gifted as well— the photos came out... really really good!! Super professional too- -came on time, traveled all the way to our venue in Long Beach, stayed focused the entire time, and was good with dealing with large groups. I’m soo happy I had Yana shoot for our wedding. She’s the real deal! I can’t stop looking over the photos, even after 1 year! More...

I've worked in front of the camera professionally for over 16 years, and shooting headshots with Yana was one of the best experiences I've had. The North Hollywood studio that she used for our shoot was modern, clean, and fully equipped. Yana was very accommodating and asked me what kind of photos I was looking to get and also put my favorite music on during the shoot. In-studio headshot sessions don't get much better than that. Thanks Yana! More...

Great experience at Yana's with my 2.5 year old! His first set of headshots! She did an amazing job making us comfortable, and making my toddler feel engaged, welcome and confident. There was no rush, just calm pursuit of great shots. I gave her a list of what we needed and she made sure to get it all even as I was distracted at how cute it all was. After the session she took us through all the shots and guided us to ideal industry selects.Couldn't be happier with her professionalism, and the results were amazing! My son was asking for her as we got in the car to leave. Love that!Highly recommend headshots with Yana's Photos.She has also done my husband's headshots, and one of these days mine will be next :) !!! More...

I have searched for a photographer to take headshots of my daughter. I found Yana on BARK. After speaking with her for just a few minutes, I felt comfortable. Yana came to our house and shot the most beautiful photos during the "golden hour." She captured her spirit - the look was natural, fresh and simply stunning. Her professionalism and easy nature resulted in headshots that have already netted results. See you in 6 months Yana :) More...

As an actor or actress, you pay so much money for a headshot that will heavily influence your success in the field. These pictures are usually expensive, and yet I believe we've all experienced or know of someone with a "headshot horror story"--pictures that are over-exposed, poorly edited, or really just don't capture you the way you would like to be seen. Most of my experiences with headshots have been subpar, to say the least, and I was so scared when I booked again for new ones. However, booking with Yana was the farthest thing from a nightmare--it was beyond a blessing, and I truly couldn't be happier with what I've received. My headshots are AMAZING. Let me tell you why!!

Yana took the time to get to know what I was looking for, and not only that, but she also took the time to get to know me. We met prior to the shoot to discuss the look and feel of the photos, and exactly how I was hoping to be represented. She even studied my older headshots to understand exactly what I was unhappy with in them. She made me feel so comfortable prior to the shoot, but she didn't stop there! On our shooting day, she made the location work for me, talked me through all she was doing, checked in with me frequently as we shot to make sure she was on the right track for what I was looking for, and overall just made me so comfortable!! Yana created a space where I could express myself fully, and then captured it perfectly in her images.

After, we met to discuss the photos, and go through them as a team. Most photographers I've worked with only pick what they believe to be their favorites--what a blessing it was to get to put in my own two cents!! She really prioritized my opinion.

Yana got the images to me within a week!! The editing was flawless, and I couldn't stop calling everyone I knew just to show them the headshots. They were beyond what I could've hoped for, truly. I am head over heels for how she captured me!! The price was amazing for her incredible service, too. Honestly, she just blew me away in general!

If you're looking for quality pictures, you could find a few photographers, I'm sure. BUT if you're looking for INCREDIBLE images that actually capture YOU, and a fun, comfortable atmosphere to take them in, you will not find a more talented person than Yana. I can't recommend her enough. She is my go-to photographer now and I just truly couldn't be happier. This is absolutely money and time well spent!! She goes above and beyond every time. Trust Yana behind the camera. There is absolutely no way you could regret it. She will amaze you in moments, and continue to do so long after. Thank you Yana!!!

Thank you Rachael for the kind and insightful review. I'm so glad you had a good headshot photo session experience. I'm also happy you were able to meet with me after your session, so you could pick out your photos in person. I love it when clients take the time to look at their proofs with me, tell me their thoughts, and take my feedback as to what photos will look good on the platforms they're using, as well as the personality they are trying to convey in the photo. Looking forward to our next shoot!

Yana is an artist behind the camera and a professional in all her dealings with clients. She has photographed my family for three years in a row from our Christmas photos to our headshots. Yana has taken artful series' for my business involving ballet dancers and retail products. She is a meticulous and detail oriented photographer with an easy-going demeanor and high professional standards. Her pricing is on point and because of all that she puts in to her work, you will receive even more value than what you pay for. After all, art is valuable because of the artist behind it. She is the real deal. More...

I hired Yana for a portrait session for my grandmother as a gift for her 75th birthday. Yana told me her price range and then we agreed on a budget after I explained exactly what I was looking for. Yana expertly asked about my grandmother and her hobbies to get a sense of her style. Just days later, Yana promptly emailed me two options for studios. I loved both and the fact that she immediately was able to translate the random musings about my grandma into a physical space was remarkable. After picking a spot, date and time, I met Yana a week later with my grandmother. She did an outstanding job making my grandma feel comfortable and not self-conscious by making sure we had a playlist going of my grandma's favorite songs playing the entire time. I also should mention that my grandma doesn't speak English and I was on hand to work as a translator, but about 20 minutes into our 2-hour shoot, Yana picked up key Spanish phrases which helped my grandma feel special and is a testament to how much Yana cares and goes the extra mile to cater to her clients. My grandmother had the most amazing time and the photos are spectacular. I can't express how much I appreciate Yana's patience and attention to detail throughout the entire process. More...

She’s really nice and truly has a passion for photography - you can tell she is excited to take your pictures, rather than seeing it as a job.

Yana did a wonderful maternity session for me and most recently an amazing newborn session for my twin girls. Yana was very patient with our fussy babies and new all the right ways to position them to get the perfect shots. Yana took all the photos I requested and even found more to add. If we weren't ALL (Mommy, Daddy, babies, and of course Yana!) tired from the day, I know we would have kept shooting to get as many shots as possible. They turned out amazing. I thought the proofs were the edits! Can't wait for our 1 year smash the cake and portrait session. More...

I couldn't be more pleased about our decision do have Yana capture our wedding, when initially I was trying to avoid hiring a "professional" Photographer. I feel like those photos usually end up looking staged and lack a sense of intimacy. Not Yana's though. The entire day, she was focused, taking pictures that really express what we felt that day. Utter happiness and love. And though I hardly noticed her around, she caught so many crucial/special moments that we have a beautiful and complete documentation of our big day.
Thank you Yana. You proved to me that photos can have motion and life.

Yana is a professional photographer with insider knowledge of every facet of photographing people, excellent communication skills, fast-turnaround, and a very pleasant vibe. She recently took my headshots and I was more than satisfied. I do not consider myself to be photogenic. I never feel like I look like myself in pictures. But, Yana's Photos changed that. During the photography shoot, Yana sensed that I was nervous, straining for a smile, and fake-smiling. She spoke the right words to put me at ease. She captured wonderful pictures for which I am so grateful. I believe that having a current head shot is very important for adults and I strongly recommend Yana's Photos.

When I saw her newborn photography I actually cried because I missed out. I wish I had known about her when my precious one year-old was born.

Yana is an artist and a perfectionist. You will be taken care of in the hands of a pro.
