Today we’d like to introduce you to Ana Stella.
Hi Ana, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
My photography journey began in 2013 when my first son was born, Nathaniel. My husband David purchased our first camera only to capture all of our son’s special milestones & moments. In watching him and practicing together, I fell in love more with him and our camera. haha. I knew that we were destined for greater. However, life was still happening. We then had a second baby in 2018, I was working full time in corporate America, following the same routine every day. Although I knew I wanted to pursue photography full time, there were a lot of fears that held me back from going all-in so I worked at it when I had free time only.
Then our 3rd baby arrived in 2019, another sweet boy. We lived in a small apartment in Jersey City, NJ with three kids and we just knew NJ was not for us anymore. We wanted more for the kids. More space to play, a yard to run, warmer weather so I can shoot all year long. Moving our family to Florida & pursing our passions was our goal. In April of 2020, I lost my job in corporate to Covid19. A blessing in disguise. Although our fears of the unknown, we decided to move our family to Florida and I was then able to give 100% of myself to my family & my photography business. The past eight months have been so amazing! Since then, I’ve invested in more gear and education to get where I want to be with my business.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been smooth at all, and there are still many bumps and struggles along the way. Since I am still relatively new here in Florida, the biggest struggle is meeting new people and spreading the word on my business. I take it day by day.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a wedding and portrait photographer! My clients trust me for all big and little milestones of their lives. I capture memories and beautiful moments between couples and families. I specialize in capturing the love connection, feeling, and passion between my clients. I am most proud of my growth in the past year and the feeling that my images provide to my clients. Every day my work is different because I grow with it. It makes me look forward to my next shoot & meeting new wonderful people. What sets me apart from others is my passion, worth ethic, and my personality. I will always give more to my clients. I will be your hype girl during our session. I promise when you see your images, you will fall more in love.
What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
Most important lesson has been to keep learning to keep growing. To take chances and do things that are out of my comfort zone so I can continue to grow.
