Welcome to Yanka Photography! I'm Ritta, and my journey as a photographer began long before my conscious memories took shape. Being raised in a family of passionate photographers, it was only natural for me to embrace this art form. From an early age, I had the privilege of learning from my incredible mom, Yana, the creative force behind Yanka Photography – renowned as one of Loudoun's premier family portrait studios.

Observing my mom expertly capture those precious, one-of-a-kind moments and crafting unforgettable experiences, I was inspired to embark on my own photographic path as soon as I could hold a camera. The joy of being invited into my clients' lives, trusted as their visual storyteller, and immortalizing their memories is a privilege I cherish deeply.

They say that when you find your passion, work becomes a labor of love. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have discovered my passion and to be working alongside my mom, who has not only inspired me but entrusted me to carry on the business. Specializing in family and kids photography, as well as senior/grad sessions, couple shoots, and captivating commercial food and product projects, I offer my services both domestically and internationally. Wherever your special moments unfold, I'll be there to make them last a lifetime.

Join me at Yanka Photography and let's create timeless memories together. Your story deserves to be told through the art of photography, and I'm excited to be a part of it. Contact me today to book a session and embark on a journey of capturing cherished moments that will forever touch your heart.
