I am Yana, a professional photographer with more than 15 years of experience in family and commercial photography in Europe and the United States. My philosophy is rather simple: I want to discover and capture something unique and special about every one of my models. Each of my sessions is an opportunity to create an unforgettable moment, a keepsake you’ll cherish and share for years to come.
The beauty of Northern Virginia offers fantastic opportunities for outdoor sessions. During the colder months we transition to our indoor studio in the heart of Loudoun County, offering additional comfort and opportunity for intimate sessions, such as our Newborn and Boudoir packages.
Hello, I’m Ritta. My journey as a photographer began well before I could actually remember. Growing up in the family of a professional photographer, that’s just what happens. I’ve had the fortune to be able to learn from my mom Yana, the talent and passion behind Yanka Photography, one of Loudoun’s top family portrait studios. Watching her capture special and unique moments, create memorable experiences, being invited into her clients’ lives and trusted to be their visual storyteller – it’s little wonder I followed my mom’s path as soon as I could hold a camera.
They say, find your passion and you’ll never work a day in your life. I’m lucky to have found my passion and my work alongside my mom, whom I’m proud to call not just my mentor but also my partner.
I love to work with teens and young adults. My areas of interest are Senior Photography, Love Story & Engagement thematic shoots, and Weddings. I travel domestically and internationally for my clients. I look forward to making your memories last a lifetime.
