When I’m not working I’m out capturing landscapes, I love to immerse myself in nature, savoring its calm and silence. Rising while it’s still night, waiting for the first light to shoot a picture it’s a gift I often give myself
I am Anna
The desire to discover, the desire to move, to capture the flavor: three concepts that describe the art of photography.” It’s a quote by Helmut Newton that I made my own..
A little about myself
My name is Anna, I live between Vicenza and Rome, in Italy. I collect hearts, I like geese and I gather lavender. And I love photography.
In my memories I always see myself with a camera in hand. I understand the value of memories, and since becoming a Mom I always tried to capture with photos the precious moments of my children’s development.
I soon started to study, first self-taught, then entrusting myself to professionals. I attended workshops in Italy and abroad, acquiring and improving techniques in photography and post production, looking for a style to call my own. I discovered that I love teaching, to both adults and children alike. Thanks to the project “Conoscere Fotografando”, developed by Tuscan friend and photographer Giacomo Donati and supported by Nikon School, I devoted myself to teaching photography to children, impressed by their photographic sensitivity.In my work I like simple, clean portraits, where attention is drawn to a smile, a look, an emotion.
My post-production is light, fresh, never excessive. I believe in quality that doesn’t just happen by chance but it the result of years of study, courses, workshops, continuing education.
To this day, my Monday mornings are devoted to my own training.
I attend courses and spend time testing and experimenting in my studio with my best friend, Light.
I adore natural light and love the flash. Both are fundamental, it depends on the situation. Because of the essential role of light I devoted myself to the thorough study of the flash, both in studio and on the field, to evolve into the friendliest possible relationship with it.
What I Do
I focus primarily on weddings, family and children. I enjoy portraying people, especially shy people who freeze in front of the camera, but who with patience eventually relax, revealing their best to my shots.
I organize photo shoots either in my studio or in your home, in a church or under a tree, during the day and by night, to capture a moment that is a happy one for you, one to remember.
Once a year I organize photographic tours for small groups to my top favorite destinations, Provence in the lavender blooming period and Portugal at the end of September, in search of unique images..
I understand the value of memories, every image shot is a memory, every memory an emotion. And every small emotion fills my heart.
That’s why I look for emotions, why I seek a relationship with my subjects.
When empathy kicks in, I’m certain of a good outcome.
Here's what can i do for you
I like to capture emotions, grasp the important moments in images. The magic of a glance, the tenderness of a gesture, a bride’s happiness live forever in my shots.
My wedding services always include a pre-wedding get-together, where I offer the newlyweds-to-be a portrait session in order to create together a fundamental relationship, to put them at ease for the day of the ceremony.
An image, and particularly a photographic portrait, is effective only if it conveys something to those looking at it: it’s a true and genuine communicative act, emotional and personal, written not with pen and paper but with a “click”. That’s why I seek empathy with my subjects, to enter in a relationship with them. It’s the only way I can expand the value of the message and of the emotions expressed with that brief but very important “Click”.
