NZIPP Bronze Awards Winner 2017

Hello, I'm Yulia Shadan,  commercial, travel, lifestyle and family 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 that way on request, however reflecting and capturing the moment in present colours gives me a greater pleasure. Thats whats my photography style is about - colours as well as classic black and whites.

I LOVE travelling, which I enjoy every moment of with my wonderful husband and our little baby girl. Arash takes care of all the organisational moments and I make sure to capture the colours 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!
