Hello and welcome! I'm Ana (pronounced Anna), a 24-year-old wedding and portrait photographer based out of a little white farmhouse outside of Des Moines. I'm obsessed with things like gardening, reading on the front porch, and chasing a life that is kind of old-fashioned. You can usually find me with a messy bun on top of my head and mug of coffee in hand OR out in the garden tending to my vegetables and chickens. In November I will marry my high-school sweetheart, Mitchell, and can't wait to start our life together as husband and wife. You can follow our adventures in the country at my lifestyle blog: Little House and the Woods.
I'm so happy you are here and hope you will cozy up and stay awhile. Storytelling has become my greatest passion over the past five years and I find deep meaning in clicking the shutter on your memories. Whether its weddings, families, or seniors, I love capturing all seasons of life and would feel so honored to be a small part of your legacy!
Inside you'll find reclaimed hardwood floors, fresh white walls, and a studio room tucked upstairs that provides a cozy space for indoor photos. I'm all about comfort so the house is always stocked with freshly baked cookies, lemonade, soft knit blankets, lavender essential oil, storybooks, stuffed animals, and beauty supplies. Want a tour? You can find the full studio tour here! Farmhouse sessions are 25% off regular-priced sessions. To set a day and time to come visit, email me at email@example.com.
Last April I opened an in-home studio at the farmhouse and would love nothing more than to see you here! Welcoming you into my home for a photo experience that is personal, homey, and stress-free is one of my favorite parts of this business because...well, who doesn't want a professional photo shoot that feels more like hanging out at home? My home and studio sits on a picturesque sixteen acres in Norwalk, complete with an old pink barn, pond, and fields of golden grass.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful session with Abby. Her pictures are amazing and I am having a very difficult time trying to decide what ones to print. You have a gift Ana. Not only in your photography, your eye, and the wonderful way about you; but in your heart. It is wonderful to see someone so perfectly suited to their profession. I am sure your business will continue to grow and be successful! Wishing you all the best!
I can't thank you enough. I said it before I was even engaged..."I don't care how much my photographer costs, I want the best because besides the memories, the pictures is all you get to take with you." Thank you for being THE BEST and perfectly capturing these precious moments.
These just made my whole entire WEEK!! They are beautiful!!! You have such a brilliant eye for photography. You are incredible and we love that we have beautiful pictures to document our love story. Just this weekend we were at Andrew's grandma's and we got to see their photos from their wedding. We couldn't help but delight in the thought of our grandkids looking at our pictures.

I am getting married this November to my high-school sweetheart, Mitchell. After photographing weddings for almost five years it is finally my turn to plan a celebration and walk down the aisle. Why am I telling you this? Because I totally understand where you are right now. I understand the excitement you feel every time you look at that shiny diamond on your finger and the butterflies in your stomach when you envision walking down the aisle. If you are anything like me, you hope to have a beautiful wedding...but you are most excited for the marriage that will follow.
I also understand how overwhelming it can be to make decisions about your wedding day. Heck, I have yet to settle on a color scheme for mine. But I want you to know that I am here to go above and beyond. I aim to serve you like an extra bridesmaid- making sure your day is joyful, stress-free, and documented in a timeless and lovely way. While your dress will be tucked away in your closet and the flowers will dry, your wedding photos will someday serve as your legacy and I don't take that job lightly. I have created this business just for you and I would feel honored to be a small part of your love story.
Girl, I am so excited for you! You are about to turn the page on a new chapter in your life and the possibilities are endless. For some, graduating high school is a bittersweet end and for others it is an exciting (and long-awaited) beginning...but no matter how you feel, you deserve to be celebrated because YOU MADE IT!
I believe senior sessions can go deeper than snapping photos and delivering a gallery. In fact, I see your photo session as an opportunity to build a friendship and have an amazing time in the process. When you jump on board with me there is no awkward posing or edits that make you look like a different person- I work hard to make sure your final collection feels natural, joyful, and bubbling with personality.
So what's next? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you all the information to get your date booked! After that we will meet up for lattés at a local coffee shop to plan out all the details. I can't wait to meet you and capture this special time in your life.
Starting this business at 19 and going full-time at 23 has been one of my life's greatest adventures. Having the opportunity to create meaningful connections and express my creativity on an almost daily basis is a freakin' dream job but I would be lying if I told you it has always been easy...
Actually it was far from easy. It has taken years, hundreds of shoots, many tears, frustration, and self-doubt to get to where I am today and if that sounds anything like you, I'm here to encourage you to keep going. You can build a successful, joyful, and rewarding business that allows you the freedom and creativity you desire and I would love nothing more than to help you achieve your goals.
If you are ready to invest in yourself and your business, mentoring might be a great fit for you! Farmhouse Mentorship Sessions are $425 and include a 60-minute question/answer session, website review, and new headshots. You'll walk away with the foundation of knowledge I wish I had as a new photographer (and a new friend).
