York Harbor Beach family portraits: The Shanebergers

Capping off my week of beach portraits last month was a family that holds a very special place in my heart. Sally and Gray were wedding clients in 2012 and it was their wedding that really got my business into high gear. For us photographers sometimes we just have an event or a client that...

Blue Hill Maine family portraits

During my week home in Maine this August I had the joy of seeing this family. I have been photographing Catherine and Matt and their kids for the past five years, doing family portraits and senior photos for their oldest daughter. This summer it was their son’s turn for senior portraits and we also did...

Pine Point Beach family photos: The Grants

Adding to my string of beach sessions this summer were the Grant family! I’ve known Jesse and Moraima for many years, and photographed their wedding in Puerto Rico five years ago. They recently moved to Portland, Maine and while I was home visiting and working, we got together for a fun session on the beach....

Pine Point Beach summer portraits: Mawson-Baker family

This August was full of beautiful beach sessions and family portraits all over Maine. Many of them were former wedding clients who I’ve had the joy of staying in touch with over the years, like this family! I photographed Leah and Ryan’s wedding in 2013 and now they have two lovely girls. We got to...

Mother’s Day Thank You

To all the mothers that have allowed me the chance to document a piece of their life, thank you. Making these memories for you brings me such great joy and I’m so honored to know you and have you in my life.  Happy Mother’s Day. xoxo Anne   Interested in having your family portraits done...

George Bush Park family portraits

This October I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family for a photo session in George Bush Park in Katy. The weather was absolutely perfect on this fall day and the space was great for letting their three year old son run around. Sessions with toddlers are always challenging. As any parent of a...

Drakes Island Beach Maine family portraits

On my summer vacation home to Maine this year I got together with my dear friend Brea of Brea McDonald Photography and her family for an evening of dinner on the beach. We gathered our clan of kids, our beach chairs, and a cooler of pasta salad and beer and enjoyed a gorgeous night on the...

Fall Portrait Season

We are finally coming into a great stretch of weather in the south, where 90 degree days are put on hold for a few months until April when spring, will again, bring warm days and eventual unbearable summer heat. But until then it is fall in Texas and I will cherish these cooler mornings and comfortable evening...

An Afternoon at Home With The Babes…

Photographing families in their home, going about their day, as if I wasn’t even there…that is how I love to do family “portraits.” Everyone is relaxed and no one is expected to pose for the camera. Here is a recent family I had the pleasure of spending some time with.    If you live in Katy,...

From Groom to Father

Today is Father’s Day. So today I’d like to do a “where are they now?” piece, highlighting three of my past clients who have recently become fathers or are expecting their first child in a few, short weeks. All three of these men were grooms from my most special weddings and all these people hold a...

Houston Arboretum Family Portraits

Penny and Chris adopted Olivia when she was just four months old. She is the love of their life and they asked to have their very first family portrait session done at Olivia’s favorite place, the turtle pond at the Houston Arboretum. And on a rainy day at the beginning of November we did just...

Happy Halloween from Houston

This marks our second Halloween since moving to the suburbs of Houston. Last year we had only been here for less than two weeks when the holiday arrived. I was pregnant with Vada and getting all dressed up wasn’t top priority on my list. We got a costume for Olivia and ventured out into our new...

Katy, Texas Fall Family Session Dates

Fall is here and it is time to update that family photo! If you need to refresh the portrait over the mantle or need a great shot for your annual holiday card, then I invite you to join me in November for a short family session.  Sessions will take place in George Bush Park on...

Introducing baby Vada

On March 11th we welcomed Vada Christine Schmersal to our family. She was born in the water at the Katy Birth Center at 7:33 in the evening. The first few weeks after she was born we were blessed to have my sister and my parents visit us in Houston to meet the newest grand baby and...
