COME AS YOU ARE

Every family has a unique personality, and when we work together, I strive to bring out the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that make your family like no other. I call my style directed photojournalism, which is a balance between the carefree and the guided, with attention paid to composition, and the essence of each subject. My ultimate goal is to provide you with images you will cherish for years to come.

PRAISE

“Thank you so much Anita! The photos are absolutely wonderful. There are so many great shots to pick from. I don’t know which to choose. I really appreciate all of your tips before the photo shoot, calm demeanor, and wonderful photography skills! Also, I was surprised to see that you were already done with the editing – that was fast! I can’t wait to see the book. Thanks again!”

“I just opened my email, and there were the most beautiful 23 photos I think I’ve ever seen. I was tearing up to look at them and could not stop… Obviously, I am a bit impartial. You have an incredible eye and vision of art and we are so lucky to have been a part of this.”

It is so hard to get my mom to smile, and you really captured her.  I am so happy we were able to do the session when we did. Also love the group shots… and ones of me. Thank you again Anita for your creative eye, and patience to work with the group.”

“The photos you produce are always incredible. Each time I am handed an amazing perspective. Each year as the seasons pass I feel like we are walking a path with your photos. I have to say, the Fall season is most memorable. Natures colors are a blessing and you know just how to capture them.”

“You see people the way everyone would love to be seen – with curiosity, respect, humor, and some kind of abiding love. That is why you are a great photographer, and why you can’t help but make art.”
