a deeper insight to the session

"The quality of her work is the best of the best."

- MEGAN AND CHRIS

Ana has captured multiple special moments for me and having these images to keep forever means so much. The quality of her work is the best of the best. And to top it off, she is one of the sweetest humans I have ever met. Highly recommend Ana for any life memories you’d like pictures for. I will continue to use Ana for mine!

I believe photos aren't meant to live on our devices. While it is convenient to pull up a photo and show a friend, there is something about holding an album of your favorite images or seeing them framed on the wall. I offer heirloom albums and prints, so you can cherish these memories forever.

Locations

a few of my FAVORITE PLACES for sessions

for couples and families

Most times, people love choosing a location that holds a memory for them. However, I am more than happy to help scout out the best location for you.

From national parks to your backyard, the options are endless. I even travel for portrait sessions. If there is a special vacation spot you love or favorite activity you want documented, I am up for any place and adventure. The sky is the limit when it comes to planning your session location.

These are just a few of my favorites, and I am always up for exploring new places!

The answer is YES! I love when families choose to incorporate their furry friends into their portraits. This may only mean that we will need to keep this in mind when selecting a location for the session. 

When including your pet into the session, there are a few things to keep in mind and plan for. First thing is thinking of someone to help out during the shoot. I like to begin the session with these photos, so your pet isn't waiting anxiously and we can continue with the shoot smoothly. Having a friend nearby to take your pet for the remaining time is super helpful.

Lastly, if you do plan to bring your fury one to the session, I highly recommend taking them on a walk beforehand, so they are not a ball of energy during the shoot. Even bringing a small treat for them could help them cooperate for photos or be a good reward afterwards

01. Can we bring our pet to the shoot?

For families, couples, and newborns

frequently asked questions

On average, I am booked 4-6 weeks out. Late summer and fall dates are my most popular seasons, but I offer dates all year round. When planning to book a session, I recommend scheduling as soon as you can. 

02. HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK OUT?

For families, couples, and newborns

frequently asked questions

Of course you can share! I love seeing the vision my clients have and I use this information to help scout out the best location that fits the vibe you are wanting. I will preface this saying that I only use these photos to help gain a better understanding of the vision you have and not as a strict photo list. I have years of experience shooting families and strive to capture each family uniquely and capture portraits that tell their story. 

03. CAN I SEND YOU MY PINTEREST BOARD WITH ALL MY PHOTO IDEAS?

For families, couples, and newborns

frequently asked questions

This is a time where you get to plan a fun date together and take a break from wedding planning!! Your engagement shoot is more about the time together than the photos itself. We will spend 90 minutes together sharing stories, laughing, dancing to music, and capturing you in the moment and the exciting season you are in!

 Most importantly it allows you to learn my candid shooting style and what it feels like to be behind the camera. I promise it’s not as scary as you think it is. I will direct you with certain prompts to help you feel comfortable and feel confident.

04. What is your engagement session experience like?

For families, couples, and newborns

frequently asked questions

No need to worry! I will direct and pose you throughout your whole session. My style of shooting is based off a lot of movement and creating candid moments. Newborn portraits are a slower pace than my family and maternity sessions. Newborn sessions are about all the baby snuggles and focusing on the sweet details of baby and the nursery (if done in your home.) My approach to newborn sessions are lifestyle and not "too posed." For example, If you want to give baby their first bath at home, I would love to document that. 

05. WILL YOU HELP WITH POSING?

For families, couples, and newborns

frequently asked questions

Yes I do! I love when families choose locations that hold a special meaning to them. If it means we need to drive a few hours away or fly to your favorite vacation spot, I am down! Skies the limit when it comes to locations.

06. DO YOU TRAVEL?
