Hello! I am Anna, your photographer. I will work with you prior to your session to plan the details and learn more about what you love. At your session I will create the beautiful images you see on our site while you sit back and take a breath. Those first few weeks with a baby can be challenging and stressful, I know that from firsthand experience. At our session you can relax and let me do all the work. It’s my job and I love doing it. After our session I will hand edit each of your images, paying great attention to detail and prepare them for your gallery reveal.
I have been photographing babies and families since 2009. I became interested in photography when I had my own babies. I had a camera, but didn’t know how to use it. I focused all of my free time learning the ins and outs of my camera, my own children were my models. When I felt confident I could deliver a quality product I opened my studio and life hasn’t slowed down yet. Although my life is busy at home I have put in the work to become one of Kansas City’s top newborn photographers. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies, but photography found it’s way into my world and definitely has guided my career path in a much different direction than I had planned.
I have been married to my husband for eighteen years and we have four children (two sets of twins). I enjoy watching all of my kiddos play sports, hanging out by the pool, spending time with family, reading and watching episodes of The Office on repeat.
I would love to have you as part of our AMP family. It is such a joy to capture family milestone for our clients, I cannot wait to do the same for you.
Hello! I’m Anna’s sidekick, Kati, otherwise known as the Studio Manager. Most clients have their first point of contact with me when booking a session. I answer all new inquiry emails, billing and handle our studio calendar. I often assist on mini session days and special events. Newborn clients will meet with me for their gallery reveal.
I love getting to know our clients as their babies grow. I especially love spending time with our newborn clients during their gallery viewing session. It’s so fun to share in the moment when parents get the first glimpse of their baby under Anna’s magic. These times are special and it’s amazing to work with clients to choose just the right images and products that fit their family.
My husband and I live in Blue Springs with our three feisty kiddos that keep us super busy with baseball and barbies. We enjoy family movie nights and smores on the backyard fire pit. I am active in my church and have always loved singing and performing throughout high school and college. I love all things creative and crafty, I also enjoy working with my husband to create custom home decor pieces in our home workshop.
