Nyob Zoo! Hello!

My name is Yer Xiong and I'm the photographer behind Yer Photos. I graduated from Madison College with an Associates Degree in Photography. I was born in a refugee camp in Thailand and moved to the United States in '92. Growing up in a big family, with 6 sisters and 2 brothers, has taught me to be patient and understanding in all of my relationships - professional and personal.

I love being Hmong. I love photography.


I put my heart into everything that I do and I like to have fun. I'm not very good at hiding my emotions, so I'm very contagious - my positive energy will infect you when we meet.

I'm a smiler. :)

I choose to use my photography to be the change in the world that I want to see. Every one has a story to tell and I want to be there to listen and to document those stories.


*Self portraits are so hard to do, and this one was no exception. :)
