Ethereal Portraits + Stunning Personal Branding Photography

Serving all people on a quest towards self-love and acceptance in Vancouver, Canada

Hey, I’m Mina! If there was one thing to know about myself and Lumena Photography, it’s that my portrait and headshot photography career has been driven by one mission: To provide my clients with mystical, timeless photos that help them rediscover their inner and outer beauty.

I love working with conscious brands and individuals who are on a mission to make a positive difference in this world. Health practitioners, sound healers, movement coaches, and authors are some of the extraordinary people I’ve photographed. With professional hair and makeup that’s personalized to your preferences, a detailed styling consultation to design your shoot, and a fully-guided and holistic photo shoot, you can take a deep breath knowing you’re in good hands.

When I’m not taking photos of inspiring individuals all over the Vancouver area, such as The North Shore, Kitsilano, and Burnaby you can find me…

At the nearest beach or canyon, swimming — even during the winter!

Making food and enjoying it with friends over a movie.

Roller skating — though I’m not a pro, I love the liberating feeling, especially to my favorite tunes.

Listening to a podcast or reading a new book to grow my mind and gain new perspectives about the world.

Being in nature and exploring new places — I love getting outside with the elements with some great company.

"I've never had such a fun, uplifting and professional shoot."

"As someone who usually hides away from photos, I have to say I've never had such a fun, uplifting and professional shoot as I had with Mina. Not only did she take care of every little aspect from composition to lighting, but she also managed to make me feel so comfortable and beautiful. Her energy is so much fun, and she knows what she's doing. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect portraits."

– Amanda

"Unforgettable! Mina made the experience delightful..."

"...from beginning to end. We're not the images you see in media. At 64, the fullness of time is evident in my face and body; my 21 year old (and their cat!) aren't camera-friendly. Mina's images are beautiful - they capture some essence - the light in us. They will be cherished for many years to come, and so will the experience itself. Absolutely recommend that you do this. 

– Susan

"I wasn’t sure if I had everything ready. How to stand, how to pose..."

"but honestly when I showed up, Mina was just so helpful and so calming that I was able just to relax. She’s like, “I got you”. The experience was more than a photoshoot. It was a time for me to celebrate the woman I am and the woman I am becoming."

– kathy

"I will never forget how that shoot uplifted me...."

"I was really depressed and feeling low I almost cancelled. I will never forget how that shoot uplifted me. It was the day I decided that this is what I want to be doing. Creating art and that nothing will stop me. Because even on those worst days I still show up."

– Nic

You want to feel self-confident and empowered

YOU FEEL A DEEP CONNECTION TO NATURE

YOU FEEL IT’S TIME TO TREAT YOURSELF TO A LUXURIOUS EXPERIENCE

YOU'RE FASCINATED BY THE ETHEREAL WORLD

YOU'RE READY TO LEAVE YOUR MARK ON THE WORLD!

The beauty of portraiture is the power to share, treasure, and capture that moment in time forever. It’s one of the most powerful tools we have that allows us to see ourselves in a new light and to discover lost parts of ourselves.

And the best part? You don’t have to be “perfect.” (Let’s be honest, the world would be so boring if we were all the same!) So rest assured that no matter what age, weight, size, or background you come from this feeling is 100% accessible to you.

Here's to the ever beginning journey.
