I’ll be traveling to Georgia this summer, so if you are interested in a session send me an email to: anna (at) cityviewphoto (dot) com. I will be there beginning July 17th and staying at least a week, both on the coast and in NE Georgia.

Looking forward to seeing y’all!



Hello and good evening!

In honor of the six more weeks of winter (5 weeks and 6 days, but who’s counting?) we have to look forward to, I have decided to have a contest. I’m in the mood to give away a portrait session – are you in the mood to win one? If so, simply leave a comment in this post by 5p.m. tomorrow (Thurs., February 4, 2010). On Friday a number will be picked at random and that number post will win.

Easy peasy, right?

The most important details are these:

~ Winner must live in or be traveling to the Chicagoland area for the session (suburbs work!)
~ The session must take place on or before April 30, 2010 at a mutually convenient time

Start commenting – I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!!

[The beautiful family featured in this post is that of my friend Amanda whom I’ve known since high school. I had the honor of photographing them again over Thanksgiving holiday, but in the hectic-ness that was Sept – Dec., they did not get a blog post. Don’t you think they deserve one?! ]


Over the Thanksgiving break J and I traveled to Georgia and South Carolina to visit family, and I had my third annual day of photo sessions in Hartwell. I love doing these sessions – it’s always a fun and fast whirlwind of a day, and I ALWAYS end up with beautiful images of beautiful families. Here’s the first preview from this year’s sessions: the Martin Family!

Check out Jake’s eyes… even in black and white they shine.

And Cameron’s smile…

And Olivia’s complete adorable-ness…

See what I mean? More to come!!

Calling all fans of city|view photography…

Preparations are underway for the spring/summer 2009 season!! Keep an eye on the blog because some fun and exciting announcements will be posted soon, and you won’t want to miss out (:

In the meantime, city|view photography is now on Facebook. Hurrah! BECOME A FAN! You know you want to…


And last, but certainly not least…. meet Madeline!! When I photographed Madeline last year, she was under the weather, so I spent some time with a beautiful, quiet little girl. This year, she was a lot taller, feeling a lot better, and a LOT more active. We had so much fun chasing her around during her session… I think she totally wore J out!

She certainly is a special little girl – totally captured our hearts (:

This year’s Hartwell sessions came with a first for me… photographing four brothers, all of whom are in college!! I’m used to working with young children, so let’s just say it was a pleasant break in the day to work with “kids” who did everything I asked. I admit I got a few odd looks, but they were great fun (:

And here’s one of the whole family…

If I recall correctly, we got Ryleigh and Cooper in just before the rain started! I had a hard time deciding which images of these two to post on the blog… I decided on this one that shows off Ryleigh’s gorgeous smile and fun personality…

And this one that showed off Cooper’s gorgeous eyes (and just a glimpse of his wide range of facial expressions!)…

Not only is this a lovely family, but they are super troopers!! They stuck it out through the cold and the rain and I think we ended up with some fabulous images… what do you think?!

Enjoy (:

It’s always a pleasure to photograph these three… IMPOSSIBLE to take a bad picture of them!! Meet Eli, Ivy, and Emma (:

The photographer (even has business cards!!)…

The beauty…

And, the diva… (:
