I don't believe photography should be transactional. I'd be sad to take your photos and never hear from you again because your story means so much more to me than that.

I want to know all about you + your fiancé's first date, how your family likes to spend quiet Saturday mornings, and see all the cute photos of your fur-babies growing up.

I believe all of life's moments should be captured - from the big milestones to the small victories. Real life goes beyond your wedding/elopement, so I also offer sessions for families, seniors, newborns, engagements, branding, and events.

I picked up my first camera in middle school - it was my best friend's old point-and-shoot camera that she got as a Christmas gift back in 2008. We went to the park + set up a photoshoot where we showed off all the books we loved to read at that time. I proudly modeled "The Hunger Games". We also did some jumping photos, but you'll have to go to Instagram to see those.

The trip ended with me dropped the camera + giving up on photography for the time being. 

my story

I didn't get my first DSLR (semi-professional camera) until my first year of college - sometime around 2015. I was in the middle of changing my major 5 times and thought a hobby would relieve some of the stress. I did a few photoshoots for some family + friends, but was too afraid to ever take my camera off the "safe" automatic mode.

I did have a lot of fun taking my camera everywhere (including on hiking trips with best friend mentioned in previous slide).

my story

Everything changed in March 2020 - I'm sure you're aware of the reason.

I was laid off from my job, and found myself with lots of time and no creative outlet. So I enrolled in many photography courses: shooting, editing, posing, business, social media, marketing, etc. I worked with some amazing mentors + officially launched ANP in August 2020.

This photo was from one of my first official couples sessions as a business.

my story

I have since found a deep passion in connecting with others + capturing authentic moments in their lives - from weddings to families, newborns, branding, and senior sessions. 

I feel so much peace when I am behind a camera + I make it my goal to share that to all of my clients. I don't want you to feel stressed, rushed, or self-conscious so I work hard to fill those gaps for you + make your session a wonderful experience that helps you feel more connected + present with those around you.
