Yosay Photography is a locally owned photography company that has been involved in capturing life’s moments for more than 40 years in Youngstown and surrounding areas.
Owner Janet Yosay is the daughter of Lloyd Jones, a professional photojournalist, well known in Youngstown for his work. Raised in a photographic family, behind the camera was a familiar place for her.
After attending The Ohio State University Janet was offered a prestigious position as a medical photographer for Youngstown Hospital Association. For several years she photographed surgeries, autopsies, new borns, and many medical oddities. Her photography was used as medical education contributions for the medical field, journals, and future education.
In 1985, Janet combined forces with Carol & Phil Prosser owners of Prosser Photography located in Boardman, OH. Prosser Photography specialized in school photography, sports teams, reunions, and preschools to name a few of the events that were covered.
Over the next few decades Prosser Yosay Photography with owners Carol Prosser and Janet Yosay were often seen on location photographing prestigious events, schools, sports, and community activities. Their list of clients and associations they have photographed over the last few decades is astounding.
Carol and Phil began transitioning the Prosser Yosay Photography name to Yosay Photography when in 2008, Janet lost her friend and business partner Carol Prosser.
Janet Yosay and Carol Prosser made it their goal as a local company to support the Youngstown community. They always supported local sports teams and community events through donations and sponsorship.
Janet continues to service the community with high-quality photography at reasonable costs. Janet feels that every parent should be able to take home a memory of their child without extreme cost. Her workforce includes local professionals, parents, students, and community members. All of the photography is processed in a local lab and each product is hand packaged and viewed by a person and not a machine. These elements make for a quick turnaround and top quality product.
On the field or in the studio her company makes sure that each child has their best photograph taken whether that takes 3 images, 8, or more. Her staff is happy to spend the time needed to get the best smile and expression of each child. Janet is always willing to work with each parent and she is easily accessible by e-mail, phone, or in person.
