For people who cherish their memories.

Turning fleeting into timeless.


ABERDEEN FAMILY photographer

Well, hello You!

My name is Iana and I am the photographer, creator, visionary, coffee-drinker and apple-muncher behind the brand that is Chtefan. Photography.


It's nice to meet ya!

Have you come here in search of beautiful imagery of your family and a joyful and easy experience along the way? You've arrived at the right place.

I'm a lifestyle family and childhood photographer based just south of Aberdeen, Scotland. I live in our forever home, which is currently undergoing a significant face-lift with my husband, our two boisterous sons and the chillest cat ever - Josh.

Creating memory heirlooms shouldn't feel anything other than exciting and special - all you need is gentle guidance and a few fun prompts - I am here to provide you with just that and together we will create heartfelt photographs that will live on the walls of your home for years - reminding you of how today felt.

Have a look around to get to know me and my art a little bit better and then reach out and let's make some memories!

Personal Brand & Artisan Headshot Photography for awesome business owners in Aberdeen and Angus

(psssst... yes, that's you!)
Go from in-visible to IN-DEMAND with beautiful storytelling brand images


Your Personal Brand is not just about you.

It's about the feeling people get about who you are and what you do.

You have built your soulful and beautiful business through who you are and that is why your clients love you.


Your brand photo shoot is so much more than "just" some headshots, it's a portfolio of images that showcase you, the amazing, hard-working and wonderful you and all that you have to offer your clients. It tells a story and it evokes a feeling and, above everything else, it makes you simply irresistible to your ideal client.


You are waaay better than iPhone selfies, your business deserves more than a party snap from Uni days. Let gorgeous, professional photography work hard on your behalf.

To stand out from the crowd of others offering similar services and products, you need to showcase your true self.

We live in a visual world, where emotional connection is key to engaging your clients. Your presence on your website and social media is the first impression you make, so be in control and make sure it's on your terms and showing off the best, truest version of you.
