let's get to know each other

Hi I'm Annika

Hello, I'm Annika, your friendly neighborhood photographer. I fell in love with this profession while photographing my babies, and it has developed into a business I adore. I have 5 kids and live in Huntington Beach with my husband Jack. I use natural light in all of my sessions but the golden light of the sunset is where my heart lies, I just love the way the sun turns everything it hits into something magical. I specialize in capturing candid moments, and cant wait to capture yours.

Life is all about people, moments & emotions that we want to hold on to..

I started out in makeup many years ago, 17 and on TV sets. As my family grew, my career transitioned into the business side of makeup artistry and the creative portion began to take a back seat. I found that I had lost the passion for makeup but still needed a creative outlet. After having my 4 child I picked up a camera and haven't put it down. I find so much joy in capturing authentic and natural moments, really born from a desire to capture my own.

When we look at life through

the lens of Christ the landscape laid before us transforms from black and white to technicolor. It has been my love for Jesus that I feel really fuels my creativity and continues to inspire me daily. Photography allows me to capture and create the art from this inspiration . It is such a pleasure to capture moments unique to EACH family, and after over 6 years behind the camera it never gets old. I cant wait to meet you and see what special memories we can create together.

Love Notes From My Clients

I have done many shoots with Annika & I have never had anyone capture such perfect moments. She brings out amazing memories & directs us so naturally down to each smile & laugh.
She interacts so well with kids, teens (haha) & even the spouse to gain that perfect shot! She is so kind and patient. If you're on the fence just book! Her sessions are literally so fun! She makes it such a natural experience like she has known you forever. Thank you so much Annika for capturing such personal memories of my fam.

Your session is all about you, your family. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Kiss slowly. Hug tightly.

I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
