NZIPP Bronze Awards Winner 2017

Hello, my name is Yulia Shadan and I'm one of the luckiest people in the world who loves her job, it's my life.

I LOVE real people with real raw emotions as well as sleek styled shoots. I am travel, lifestyle, family and commercial photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand. 


I LOVE colours, they make our life wonderfully happy. I do appreciate modern colour schemes and filters and happy to edit images in the way you like.

I LOVE my family. ​I'm a new mom of a most amazing baby girl.

I LOVE travelling, which I enjoy every moment of with my little daughter and my wonderful husband, who takes care of all the organisational moments and I capture the colourful life of countries we visit, culture, food and people we meet on our way. You can read more about it on my Travel Blog ...

Having Masters Degree in Industrial Design and Photography lets me combine a few professions in one. From Designing the plan for a future photoshoot to Directing it and Retouching the images with accuracy and precision making sure you get what you see in my portfolio as an end result..

Working full time as a commercial photographer for over 6 years at New Zealand's most loved department store - Smith & Caughey's  gave me an extensive experience in various fields in photography and never stopped me from gaining new skills and knowledge every day. ​​

Relaxed, no rush friendly atmosphere during family photoshoots, guiding you with poses and capturing candid moments - that what you will get during our photography sessions.  You'll need some time to be yourself and relax in front of the camera, to realise there is nothing matters except you and your loved one, while Im catching your emotions on camera.

Looking forward to meet you and capture your special moments!

I don't usually provide prints or albums as there are lots of different options this days, so my packages don't include it. However, if you want me to take care of it I'll be more than happy to discuss the options
