The NY Times just published a fabulous article by Diksha Basu that is perfect for today’s blogpost – not only is it about the “rebranding” of Motherhood, but I think it’s also about taking back what Motherhood is and should be! I highly recommend the read. Speaking of mothers, I absolutely adored this portrait […]
Now that we’ve addressed the Who, Why, and Where, we’re going to talk about the HOW. Let’s break it down…
These have been a long time coming. N & G were some of the first visitors of the downtown Georgetown studio location when I first opened it, and we created some of my favorite motherhood and mommy/daughter images. It’s hard to believe that G is already over 4 years old now, she seems so tiny […]
Combined with her sharp wardrobe and our precise styling, I feel we were able to capture a really next-level, high-fashion feel to these images. Pattie trusted me from the beginning, and you can really see her personality blossom in these gorgeous portraits.
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.
This spring marks 10 years (ten?! really?!) since I first met Lizzie, Buffalo-native, dreamer, romantic who never stops inspiring me to seek beauty, be true, and love fiercely.

“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…”
I realized two things: I needed to show off motherhood to the world as the beautiful, powerful role that it is, and I needed to give families the incredible, gorgeous studio portraits they deserved. Why can’t your family photo look like the Kardashians? Why can’t you look like that, too? What makes them so special, while you have to be stressed and go to a field outside at sunset in the cold? 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“?
When Angel contacted me to schedule her family portraits I knew right away she was going to be a ton of fun to photograph. Check out their two Christmas card photos at the end! Would you ever do a family photo in your Christmas Eve pajamas?
