HEY

I’m Anna

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

little old me (and my adventures)

First things first: my photography. I’m an outdoor family photographer for Berkshire (largely in Reading) who spends her days creating fun, natural, ever-so-slightly mad photography for families who love to adventure together. I love working with families: kids are the most rewarding subjects a photographer can work with. I also do a lovely line in maternity shoots: I usually encourage my mums-to-be to come in somewhere between 32 and 37 weeks: the bump is nice and big, but there’s little danger of me suddenly having to deliver a baby!

Speaking of babies, my absolute favourite age is 7-10 months. They’re usually sitting up, super curious and “into” absolutely everything. Their little personalities are fully developing and they are just so much fun. When it comes to my family photography, I love an energetic, all-hands-on-deck kind of shoot with loads of action and lots of laughs. My family sessions involve silly games, biscuits and some Grade A dad jokes. It’s not how every photographer does it, but it works for me. 

My own family are mostly excellent. I live in Berkshire (originally from Somerset…I never did quite shift the accent) with my husband and our two crazy kids. They turned our life into a total rollercoaster and I love every minute of it. We’re big on travelling and love the outdoors and countryside. 

I’ve been volunteering with First Day’s Children Charity for the last 4 years and am currently raising money for them with a free photography activity book. Check it out here.

Donnington Castle Newbury 3.6 Mile Circular Walk

Donnington Castle is a ruined medieval castle, just north of Newbury, under the care of English Heritage. It's perched on a hill overlooking the Lambourn Valley making the steep climb up worth every effort. It's even been reported that both Henry VIII and...
