My Name is

Leya Yusupov

I am the founder of Leya Y Photography. I love photography because it feeds my soul and it allows me to freeze time. I enjoy meeting new people, hearing their stories and designing a photo session just for them.
Photography allows me to tell a story about a person by connecting to his/her essence. I have a background in finance and the corporate world that allows me to understand the genre of personal branding and corporate portraits. My other favorite genre is vintage glam because it allows every woman to see how beautiful she is with the right hair, make up and accessories.

I am also the creator of the “Bukharian Women Who Inspire” project.  Its aim is threefold.  First, to unite the dynamic women of the Bukharian community.  Second to share the stories of each participant and create positive role models for our youth.  And third it is create a business network for growth and support.
