Meet Yuliya

My name is Yuliya Rae, I am a portrait photographer based in Seattle. I photograph modern Vanity Fair style portraits, making everyday people look and feel like magazine models.

While I’d love to talk extensively of my love for dogs, all things Harry Potter and my general addiction to chocolate, you are here to learn not only who I am but what can I do for you in a photo session. 

I am happy to oblige, so here are the things I promise to deliver for your photo shoot: 

  • a safe and warm environment to get photographed
  • a friendly and enthusiastic photographer
  • a creative director guiding you through poses and looks effortlessly
  • an amateur comedian attempting to make you laugh
  • encouraging and helpful feedback to make sure your photos look amazing
  • obsessive attention to detail so that lint piece on your jacket will not be in your headshots
  • a level of customer service you will be smiling about

Sound good? Then let’s get started!

Drop me an email or give me a call and let’s talk about what you are looking for in your next photo session. 


Yuliya is incredibly talented and she made me feel comfortable and joyful the moment she opened the door to her studio. Thank you for being a part of my next journey – the desired look was captured perfectly!
