EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

family sessions

From first year anniversary sessions, to maternity, newborns, and yearly family photos, I love documenting your family grow. I know firsthand how quickly the years go by, and while each day might be a battle to get through, before you know it, your babies will be outgrowing onesies and riding their bikes without training wheels. 

My goal with family sessions is to capture fun, natural portraits of this time in your lives - to preserve your precious childhood memories. I like to take a mix of posed portraits and fun, candid moments to authentically document the interactions and beauty of your family spending time together. I do this with an arsenal of games and prompts, years of experiences photographing families, and the comfort of knowing that - as a mom myself - I know that it takes time for littles to warm up and get comfortable and that we can capture the beauty no matter what the nap schedule or snack time situation was that day. 

I offer mini sessions twice a year (spring and fall), as well as full family sessions, maternity sessions, and newborn session throughout the year.

Look through my portfolio below and visit the "Details" section to learn how to book your session today!

Yet another year of amazing family photos thanks to Anna! She is AMAZING with our 5 year old who is typically super shy. It's hard narrowing down which photos to print since they are all so good. Anna is professional, responsive and simply a delight to work with! Thank you, Anna for capturing my little family's smiles in such beautiful light and settings."

"Anna was extremely natural in giving us directions"

Bell Family

We are so happy with our newborn photos with Anna...Anna was on-time (surprisingly important with a newborn!), super respectful about our COVID precautions (she wore a mask and asked if she could touch our daughter to position her before doing so), and was a joy to work with. She asked what we wanted, what we liked and didn't like, and scouted out our place to see where the best locations were.During the shoot, Anna was extremely natural in giving us directions, let us suggest things, and was always happy to pause if our daughter needed anything (feeding, a break, etc.). Anna was in and out in 90 minutes and no meltdowns were had by our daughter!

I'd love to work with Anna again and can't recommend her enough! 

"Anna captured beautiful family photos"

Moore Family

Anna captured beautiful family photos for us as our daughter turned one! Anna was energetic, great with getting the attention of our daughter and fast (in a great way, with a one year old). We hope to work with Anna again soon to continue capturing our family.

"Anna was the BEST!"

Rachel & Nick

Anna was the best! She made everyone feel comfortable, was organized, and made the day go by without a hitch. Her photos turned out absolutely stunning and her personality is so warm and bubbly it really made us feel like we could be ourselves, which translated to beautiful photos! 

“Anna is simply incredible! 

Victoria & Tavner

She is warm and outgoing, a total sweetheart. Anna got fantastic shots and had a great eye for backgrounds and lighting - the photos are wonderful. I was so happy when I got the pictures back to see how many amazing shots she got of all the decor elements I had poured my heart into, while still getting great pictures of our guests and all the action. It was like she was in five places at once (Anna is actually a magician).

“Anna is beyond crazy talented!"  

Melissa & Trevor

You made the process so easy and relaxed and I cannot begin to express how at ease we both felt. You are such a warm and thoughtful person and it really shows in your work. Your eye is exceptional and the light is magical. The photos are more beautiful than I could ever imagine. My family and mother in law cannot stop raving about how poise, professional, and talented you are and how much the love all the photos.

"You are amazing!"

McKenzie & Ben

Our families, bridal party, friends, everyone could NOT stop talking about how amazing, precious & impressive you were! I’ve been in several weddings and no photographer has ever been such a perfect balance of personable, creative and efficient. 

I offer maternity sessions, newborn sessions and family sessions throughout the year. I offer mini sessions twice a year, in the spring and fall, in Marin, San Francisco, the East Bay and Peninsula. 

I update my availability calendar multiple times a year and usually book sessions three months in advance at the most (with the exception of newborn sessions, which can be booked farther in advance). 

I notify my mailing list first before releasing my new dates, so if you want first pick of session dates to be added to my mailing list, email me and I can add you! 

You can see my current calendar, offerings, and availability through the booking link below, but please feel free to email me if you have any questions about my sessions, booking process, or just want to say hi!

"We just love Anna and her work!!"

Kan Family

Anna is a fantastic photographer - she has been amazing at capturing beautiful photos of our family (which includes a small dog and a young toddler). She chooses beautiful locations and is so helpful with outfit planning. She's very responsive, helpful and has a quick turn around for photos. We just love Anna and her work!

KIND WORDS

“ We will cherish the beautiful photos forever!"

Maher Family 

Highly recommend booking Anna! She made our family photo session fun, comfortable, and was able to capture our wild 16 month old perfectly. She is professional and turned the gallery around very quickly. We will cherish the beautiful photos forever!
