D is the second rockstar senior I’ve photographed this spring, and with a look that’s somewhere between Gal Gadot and Zendaya, we ended up with some really gorgeous-yet-edgy portraits…Read More

You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,
And days will run into days that are exactly the same,
Full of feeding and burping,
Whining and fighting,
Naps, or lack of naps. It might seem like a never-ending cycle.
Erin was about 3 months pregnant in these photos, which was not the original "plan", and let me know ahead of time that she was expecting. These photos are a great example of how, through simple posing and styling, you can either maximize or hide any curves or pregnancy.

"As I sat there listening to these mothers, I felt really out of place. One of the women had been coming to the group for about a year, and she just kept talking about how horrible her life was, and going on and on. Some women didn’t want to open up, and others really opened up. But to me, it felt like the women there saw themselves as victims and were [myopic and] unable to see a bigger picture. I didn’t feel that there was any instruction or encouragement [on how to get better], and I ended up feeling even worse when I left. I knew I never wanted to do that again. It shook me awake. I [realized that I] saw myself as a strong person, not as a victim, and I needed to redirect my negative energy into something else. That was the permission I needed to start working again on my business, and to really pour myself into that."
I didn't want to be someone who was still struggling a year later, and I decided that wasn't going to happen.Read More

"There's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.”Read More
Is there even anything better than a baby at Christmas?
Even though the majority of the portraits I take are now in my new Georgetown photography studio on the square, I still relish the chance to do a lovely "Lifestyle" shoot with a family or newborn.

Megan said this to me afterwards:
You made me feel really pretty, Anna... I haven’t felt that in a long time. I’m serious, I cried. You really blew my mind! I love my photos, I will cherish them always.Read More
