Meet your photograpHER!


I'm Jayana and I am ready to meet you and your loved ones to help you preserve your legacy. I am a portrait photographer and documentarian based in Troy, NY. I have been shooting for 12 years. My love for photography stems from tragedy. Losing my foster mother at 13 years old painfully reminded me that I didn't have many photos with her. It has since been my mission to never miss a moment again. I quickly began to understand how important it was to preserve legacy through photo documentation. It brings me a great deal of joy to capture families and friends of all colors, shapes and sizes because those memories are forever even if we're not. I am also a Birth and Postpartum Doula, Babysitter Extraordinaire & DJ. I make it a point to do all of these jobs with love and an immense amount of intention. I thrives off of meaningful connections with people no matter how long or short they may be.
