How it all started

High school film class. It was so exciting to see photos come to life in the darkroom.

I pursued this initial love in college– photographing for Towson University’s newspaper, The Towerlight, covering news and the arts. When friends saw my photos, they asked me to take their portraits, and from there, my photo skills snowballed into weddings.

Post-graduation, I worked in public relations. But my heart ached to go all in on my love of photography. Plus, I wanted the freedom to travel. And asking for permission to go on an adventure is very not me.

I took the plunge, becoming a full-time photographer. Fast forward, I’ve captured over 200 weddings, 500 headshot sessions, and 3 presidential candidates. With my camera in hand, it will be fun to see where the next session takes me.

I am crossing my fingers for a session that takes me to an event at a delicious Michelin-starred restaurant. Or an energy-filled mitzvah with a family celebrating a special milestone in their child's life. Both work.

I can’t wait to help you see yourself from my camera’s eyes during your most momentous life events. 

Something I love about photography is how it allows me to travel and experience different places. My goal is to travel to all 50 states!

Meghan Evans

"I've worked with Ana for over a year as a photographer for my clothing line and now brick and mortar. She's wonderful to work with, goes the extra mile, captures beautiful photos (including moments and things I never would have thought to ask her to capture), and always delivers photos in record time."

"I can't recommend Ana enough!"

Angela Breidenstein, Ed.D., Professor of Education, Co-Chair of the 150th Steering Committee for Trinity University

"I can't thank Ana enough for these photos. They allowed me to go back in time and re-experience the day and all of the magic, slowed down to take it in—again and anew. Most of all, though, seeing all of the human interaction—the joy—in our community. Seeing familiar and new faces, and so much togetherness and love."

"Ana captured the joy in our community"
