About Me


Hello There!

My name is Yani, I live in Vista, California which makes it convenient since I enjoy the beach. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful children, I found my passion in photography after I received my first camera as a gift. My passion grew as I started to take pictures of sceneries that nature has to offer, which became great places to have photo sessions with people.When I’m not capturing special moments, you can find me doing fun outdoor activities with my family. I enjoy hiking, swimming at the beach, and doing CrossFit.  My favorite moments are the ones that are not posed but guided. They are not forced, styled, set up.. they just happen.To me, there is something magical about the work I do. I am invited into some of the most intimate parts of peoples lives and I get the honor of not only documenting these experiences but also being part of them. Every single person I work with has a story and something unique about them. It fills my heart with so much joy to be able to create images that are meaningful to other people. Images that make you feel something, images that remind you of how a moment felt, remind you of how much you love someone or how much you are loved. I use natural light with most of my photography so your home, favorite park or any other North County San Diego- area location is a great place to meet.
