Born in the spring of 1981 in Germany to a Seychelloise mother and German father, Yaeko was introduced to extensive travel and diverse cultures at an early age. Fascinated by the sites around her with a hunger to capture everything, Yaeko used her father's camera as often as possible, proving she had real talent. She was given her first camera at the young age of seven.
During a twelve year modeling career that landed her on the catwalks of New York, Milan, Paris and Tokyo, Yaeko was very fortunate to learn many valuable tips and tricks from the professional photographers, famous designers and make-up artists she worked with, thus having the ability to offer her clients something very unique and special.
Yaeko took the time to study digital photography and gained experience by practicing on her fellow models. Working as a professional photographer part time from then on, she gained more experience doing weddings, baby portraits and family portraits and most of all, model shots.
Since 2008, Yaeko has made Bradenton Florida her home and decided to make a full time career of her passion for photography.
