I’m Anja, a documentary family photographer and filmmaker based in Brighton & Hove.

Your family photos are not just for you, they're for your children too!

The days are long but the years are short.

Life with children is unpredictable, so much can happen in a day.

Your life is busy and chaotic. Your kids are bouncing off the walls and only your morning coffee is what keeps you sane right now. But then you realise how quickly time goes by, how fast your children are growing up.

Can we hold on to them being little for just another moment, please?

These beautiful, busy, curious children of yours are sprouting like wildflowers in summer and you, Mama, are too close to even see it happening.

Let me help you see! A documentary photo session captures the uniqueness and connection within your family. It captures all those fun but crazy stages your kids go through. And best of all, these photos will have YOU in them as well!

Anja laughing in Barcelona

So this is me, Anja.

Apparently I laugh a lot. That’s probably why I started seeing all those wrinkles around my eyes at age 18 already. I hated those! Now many years later, I’m learning to embrace all my little flaws. Because life is too short to worry about hair that’s not perfect or those few extra pounds on my bum. I believe life is not about perfection but about moments and connections.

I’ve got a whole page on my website talking about myself. So vain… But apparently that’s important, so feel free to have a look and get to know me a bit better 🙂
