Hello, Gorgeous:

You are about to embark on your next journey.

You want an experience to lift you up and help you to envision who you can be.

Doing portraits with Ann was one of the highlights of my life so far. 


I’ve helped hundreds of women create their best portrait ever.

I know how hard it is to trust that you’ve found the right choice to make you look your best.

I have photographed stunning images of women of different shapes and sizes; women with different tastes, from different backgrounds and with different views of life.

I guide you through the entire process, from sharing stories to capturing your best angles, serving as a personal cheerleader throughout.

with love, Ann

I'm Ann- your photographer

how much does it cost?

She’s kind, friendliest and most down to earth person, and she’s an amazing photographer.  

Not many photographers know how to shoot a full figured woman (Me!), but Ann did a great job. 

Her posing instructions were clear and easy to follow.

I didn't really know what to expect. During the shoot, Ann made me feel comfortable, sexy and beautiful.

 She has a very welcoming personality. I felt at ease with her. 

Ann has a way of bringing out your best. What I received out of this experience goes beyond the material.

I remembered who I am. 

I’ve never done anything like this before, and was quite nervous. But Ann quickly put me at ease and made me feel like a queen.

Every single one of my friends who saw the pictures had the same thing to say… beauty, elegance, and strength.  

Ann was wonderful to work with. She made me feel like a celebrity: pampered and confident.

The whole day of the shoot was such a treat!
My images are truly breathtaking and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

Plus You`Ll Be Backed By A Risk-Free Guarantee

From our initial conversation to the final product, I use my artistic skills and top-quality equipment to create portraits that are deeply personal and artistically stunning.

I focus on understanding your vision and story to craft images that truly reflect you, adding a personal touch to each photo with careful retouching.

Post-session, you'll select your favorites and if you're not completely satisfied, I'll reshoot until we capture your perfect moments. I guarantee the quality of your final products and am committed to making your "40 Over 40" experience enjoyable and memorable.

Yours truly, Ann O.

I am committed to delivering unmatched quality in every aspect of your portrait experience, from our initial conversation to the moment you hold your portraits.

I know you have a ton of options for how to invest your time, attention and money, and I sincerely appreciate you considering investing them with me. A 40 Over 40 session with Ann & Kam Photography is considered a "full-service" session, where we work with you hand-in-hand from planning the session all the way to creating art for your walls

This might be a good fit for you if you are tired of quick sessions where the photographer doesn't give you any guidance, or if you are looking for something that will truly be an experience that you will carry with you into the rest of your life. Many clients say that their session and their images changed how they saw themselves, gave them more confidence, and was so much fun that they want to do it over and over again.

The participation fee for the 40 Over 40 Session is $400. This fee holds your date and allows us to book a hair and makeup artist for your shoot. It includes your planning consultation, professional hair and makeup, a 2-hour fully-guided photoshoot, hand-retouching of all of your images and one print and corresponding digital image.

Portrait clients spend on average $2,000-4,500 for their session and the photo products they desire. We offer world-class products including matted print collections, albums, and unique wall art options that you will cherish for years to come.

We accept all major credit and debit cards and cash. Payment plans available upon request.

The real question is what will you do with the confidence you will gain from your session?

But I get it, most of us are not taught that it is not "humble" to hang photos of ourselves on our walls. I would like to argue that the best thing we can do for ourselves and the people we care for is to love, care for, and celebrate ourselves, and photographs are an amazing way to do that. When you see a photograph, your brain believes what it is seeing is real, and I can't tell you how amazing it is to see a photograph of yourself that makes you truly feel strong, confident, powerful, and beautiful. 

There are so many ways to use these images we will create. Many clients create an album or a display box of prints to pull out when they need a confidence boost. My clients hang their images in their home or in their bedrooms so that when they pass it they think of everything they have to celebrate. Others keep some for themselves and give others to their family members such as spouses, parents and children. Still others use their digital files for their social media and across a variety of professional platforms for the personal branding. The possibilities are endless.

Then you are in the right place! I would guess that 90% of my clients think this before their shoot, probably because they haven’t been photographed in good lighting with posing that flatters their body. It’s my job to guide you so that you look your best, you have fun and your personality comes out. It’s your job to love and accept yourself. It won’t take you long to relax into our shoot and realize that not only is it not difficult or scary, but that you are actually very photogenic! Many clients have shared with me how positive this experience was for their self-image and how good they felt about themselves and their bodies afterwards.

You are perfect just the way you are. No matter what diet culture tells us, it is so important that we love ourselves no matter what our weight or other “imperfections” we think we have. It’s time to neutralize the negative self-talk and love ourselves. I do want you to feel absolutely gorgeous in your photos and so I will use posing, lighting and clothing suggestions to help you look and feel your best. You will be amazed the difference these elements can make in camera! 

The first step is to schedule a phone call with Ann. We'll get to know each other and answer any questions you might have. Then we will schedule your photoshoot. We typically shoot Mondays-Thursdays starting around 10:30am at our Barrington studio.

My goal is to create the most beautiful images you have ever had of yourself. It is a collaborative process, so we will work together ahead of time to create the perfect shoot for you and to discuss both what you love and what you are insecure about. Our pricing is structured so that you only buy what you love and there is no obligation. Of course, we want you love all of your images, so get ready! That said, we want you to be 100% in love with your images and your experience. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your portraits at the viewing session, we will offer a reshoot at no additional cost to you. Our goal is to capture images that you will cherish forever.

Of course! When you see 25-30 stunning images from your shoot chances are you will want more than one. Extra images (including the 8x10 print and digital image) are $300 each. Packages include six images and beautiful folio boxes to store and display your prints and start at $1,500. We do take credit cards and offer payment plans. There is no hard sell to buy more this is about what you love and you won't know what you love until the images are finished!
