I wanted to bring out that aspect of her personality, but still show her tough side - the side that every mother or mother-to-be finds that she has: the inner goddess in all of us mothers that sheds our naive skin and comes forth post partum - braver, stronger, finally matured.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.
"When situation warrants professional and breathtaking... call Anna. Each one of the masterpieces Anna captured for me has made the news, been picked up by marketing teams, or is being used at a very high level. Rightfully so..."Read More

Did someone tell you that? Did someone say, "Well, you'll never be a model"? Did someone say, "Just go with the so-and-so photographer, they're more your style"? Did someone say, "That doesn't look good on your body type, you should get this instead"? Did someone say, "Don't be extra"? Did someone say, "Stop showing off"?Read More

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I could photograph women of this age ALL. YEAR. LONG. You women who have lived life and wear it on your skin with pride... let me photograph you, please? You have the je ne sais quoi that a bleached-blond, size-00, 18-year old can never have. You have an sexiness combined with subtlety that is impossible to put into words, but oh-so-beautiful to photograph.Read More

Preparing for a family portrait is not for the faint of heart. If you done it even once, you know this. It's not as easy as it looks, is it? Especially if you, mom, or dad, are the ones with the nice camera on a tripod with a timer, trying to get everyone to look AT THE SAME TIME!? HOW HARD CAN IT BE, RIGHT?Read More
Malachi and Jerusha came over to help with some light tests and I'm loving this Ralph-Lauren, but kind-of-old-hollywood-inspired photographs.Read More
