Right down the road from our house, we have a beautiful sunflower field. Every year we'd pass by and every year we'd never find time to do a family session there. This year, we finally did it! I've always wanted family pictures in this sunflower field, and my dream finally came true. It's the little things in life, really. Want to see more o...

Podgayskiy & Shumeyko | Family | Beach 2020

August 31, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
One of the most common questions I receive as a photographer is, "What should we wear?!" I always tell folks to check out my Pinterest board for ideas, but honestly, classic colors such as whites and khakis never go out of style. And they'll always match your walls if you decide to print and hang them (which of course, we really hope you do)....

Yev + Marta | 10 Year Anniversary

July 31, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
And in the blink of an eye, 10 years has flown by. I'm so thankful to have someone like Yev by my side. Life sure isn't perfect, but I can't imagine it without him in my life. Every 5 years we love coming back to the spot where we had our post-wedding photos done. It always brings back good memories. Yes, it's about 100 degrees, but nevertheless,...

Yev Studios | Message of Hope during Covid-19

March 31, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
In the midst of the chaos, we are praying for God's peace to fill our hearts. It is a very stressful time, but knowing God is in control even in the craziness of our time, gives me hope for the better. A song that has been playing in my head this whole entire time is "it Is Well With My Soul". I have been singing it in Russian, English, and Spanish...

In 2019 we got the chance to meet awesome new people, as well as see many familiar faces and catch up with the amazing folks in our community. We even got invited to dinner after a session! That’s the kind of community we live in: where people wave to you as you’re driving by and always stop and say hi if they see you at the grocery store. It’s tru...
