More about Devina Y....

What do you love about your job?

Photography allows me to capture people, feelings, gestures, art, and moments that are as unexplanable as they are fleeting. I've photographed alot of things over the years, but since becoming a mom, i'm most drawn to capturing families and newborns because I understand how fleeting and fast these kids grow. I love working with families, giving them a playful and sweet experience to remember, and I take pride in delivering photos that tug on heartstrings, make you giggle, and are worthy of the walls in your home.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I've done lots of family sessions recently, and I try to make it a natural and playful experience more than a photo shoot. Using prompts and hands-on guidance, I'll assist you with posing that feels comfortable and genuine. From my experience, little ones typically like to explore their new environment, and we will let them! I'll with the flow of your kids (the real VIP!) - let them run, climb, and explore. Typically, I come prepared with a little toy "friend" and give a small treat at the end! (unless you prefer otherwise)

A fun fact about this photographer

I like to make and create! So far, i've designed statement earrings out of upcycled fabrics, soapbar holder using polymer clay, Rorschach-inspired custom-painted stickers, and countless creative experiments with my girl-gang! (aka 3 daughters)
