MEET THE PERSON BEHIND THE LENS

Hello there, I am Annika Smith

Creating and capturing memories for you to cherish forever is what I live for. I am based in South OC but am open to travel anywhere for a good photo! I have been photographing families, maternity and newborns for over 4 years and have really found my passion. Some fun facts about me:
- I am a die hard foodie specializing in sweets. I will most likely know the best place to eat nearby.
- I have five kids (I know it's wild) and they are the best things (aside from my husband) that I have been blessed with.

More About Me

Photography is like poetry, only visual. There are so many stories and meanings one picture can portray, it all depends on who's looking at the photo and whether they are paying enough attention.


My goal is to capture beautiful in-between moments that make your story so special

Testimonials

She has photographed so many sessions for us I have lost count. She is attentive and gives me exactly what I want in my sessions, i'm very particular. Over the years and the many sessions we have had, we have become friends. I have referred countless people to her, not just for photography but for makeup. She has done almost all of my friends wedding makeup including my own! Definitely book her because she's amazing.
