Anna specializes in informal portraits taken in natural light, using light to sculpt the subject to the best advantage. Drawing on years of experience, real skill with the camera and a genuine interest in people, Anna can make images that show people at their very best. The best environment is the home where things are familiar and everyone is comfortable. Your home environment is part of you and records of it will be treasured in years to come. Anna likes to start a session by exploring the location to check out the lighting and background potential. She often begins with 'action' shots, as they can help to 'break the ice' and create a relaxed atmosphere. The final pictures are usually a result of suggestions from both sides and are always unique. A spontaneous picture taken during a fun session has the sparkle in the eye that will make the image a lasting pleasure. That is what Anna strives to achieve.
Anna uses high quality digital cameras and lenses. This means that the information is captured to enable the print to be either colour or black and white and to be considerably enlarged where required.
A week or two after the photographic session, Anna will invite you to a viewing, either in Simon and Anna's house or in your own home, where with her guidance you can select the images you would like to have made into wall art, an album or just prints. There is a huge range of products that you can choose from, ranging from unframed prints to huge luxury multi-image frames to unusual acrylics to canvas prints and albums and Anna has examples of many of these products for you to see, feel and drool over!
