Chicago High End Headshots and Creative Personal Brand Photography

It's not JUST an image, it's the most authentic version of you

I’m a Headshot Specialist & Portrait Photographer

After nearly two decades of tackling complex IT project management roles, I decided to make a dramatic career shift of my own in 2016. My decision to take the official plunge into photography was not only enabled by a critical layoff, but also fueled by my growing desire to express creativity and self-expression. Now as a headshot specialist and portrait photographer with clients throughout the nation – I revel in capturing the best possible version of people’s authentic selves. Focusing on both executives and performers like actors, musicians, models, and dancers – I strive to create high-end visuals ready for any content platform. After all, if someone is going to be remembered online – they might as well put their sharpest foot forward!

I had the pleasure of hiring and working with Anna on a branding and headshot shoot! My experience was beyond pleasurable, and Anna has such great energy that brings out the best in anyone for their photos! If you're looking for one of the most talented photographs in the Greater Chicagoland area, Anna is one to consider! She is quite the consummate professional, and she will help you present yourself most brilliantly through the optics.

Anna is incredibly talented, smart, and professional, and provides a very fun and relaxed atmosphere to capture the true essence of a person in headshots and other photos! She is magnificently creative and coached me throughout in a non-intimidating, collaborative and effective way. Her equipment is top notch and she graciously spent so much time with me to get the perfect shots. This is the first time I was getting professional headshots done in about 16 years, so I had anxiety about the process and end results. Anna more than delivered, and I’m now incredibly hopeful for new job opportunities from these shots! Thank you, Anna!

I wholeheartedly give Anna the highest recommendation I can. The tips and pointers she provided in advance of the shoot helped me identify what about me I wanted her to capture in a headshot and how to use hair, makeup, clothes, and accessories to get there. She was skilled, encouraging, and supportive from the moment I walked into her studio until I accepted the finished image. Responses from myself and everyone who sees the image confirm that it was an all-around 5-star experience.
