photo shoot ~ anna’s headshots and light family photos

01 professional author headshotsAfter posting my friend Stacey’s headshots yesterday, I was reminded of the headshots I took of Anna last year and never shared on here. And then I remembered I also never posted her family photos we took last fall. Last fall was really busy for me, you guys. I overbooked myself a little with shoots and weddings, and I never had time to blog a lot of the images from last year even though I really loved them. So I will keep trying to share them, along with new stuff, too.

Anyway, this is Anna Light. Let me tell you how amazing she is. I met Anna when she was a youth pastor at my church. I attended a LifeGroup led by her, watched her fall in love with her awesome husband Cody, shot their engagement and wedding photos; photographed the birth of their first child, and many more little moments as well. As their family grew, Anna took on the incredible job of being a stay at home mom and raising her children. And she wrote a book!! That’s what we did these headshot photos for: Anna needed an author photo. What?! That’s so cool.

Through every season of her life since I’ve known Anna {single female, young church leader, married, mother, etc}, she has consistently preached a message of overcoming insecurity. And when I say “preached”, I mean she lived and breathed and prayed and shared it with anyone she could. I love this woman’s heart for Christ and her heart for others! In her book, In_Security, Anna clearly outlines a godly plan for overcoming insecurity. If you have ever struggled with knowing your worth, please order a copy of her book right now – just click here. I’m partway through my copy already, and I intend to buy a few more to give as gifts to some graduating seniors this month.

Here are some of my favorites from Anna’s headshot session, followed by some of my favorites from her family’s portrait session last fall.

I love you guys and your kiddos so much! Every time we do a session, I am so impressed by Ethan & Emma, and I know it’s because you guys are great parents. <3 Anna, I am ridiculously proud of you for completing your book. I know God is going to use it to touch many lives. Thank you for always having me do your photos. It means a lot to me.
