After winning a Kodak Scholastic Award, shown at the Citi Corp building in NYC, using an image from her first roll of film in high school, Dayna knew she wanted to continue studying photography in college. Her years at SUNY at Purchase College filled her with technical and creative knowledge. Dayna went on to obtain her Masters in Art Education at CUNY Queens and immediately was hired to teach both art and photography on Long Island, NY and then Commericial Photography at Ocean County Vocational School in Brick, NJ. About the same time she was hired to teach photography at Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies, NJ and taught there for 21 years.
Dayna decided to take a risk as a professional photographer over 20 years ago and Creatively Yours, Dayna was born. It has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to combine her talents as a well-trained professional photographer and her love of people. She has immensely enjoyed watching her clients families grow. From engagement sessions, to weddings, to newborns, to family portraits, reunions, anniversary parties, communions and mitzvahs she can often be heard saying ‘I have the best job ever!”.
Long Beach Island, NJ (locals know it as LBI) is where most of the magic happens, but Dayna has been fortunate enough to do destination events all over!
