Dearest Ana,
It was such a delight coming to your studio today. Thank you for your photography of our “rainbow baby”, Remington. You are absolutely wonderful. We loved the experience and know we will love the photos. Thank you for sharing your talent and love with us.  Sloane

These pictures are so precious!  Thank you very much!
Oh, I also wanted to tell you that Verabelle learned so much from watching you- she now shushes like the Shusher and uses the rubbing-the-forehead technique to soothe her baby sister.  She also memorized a few of the poses she saw from the photos “at Ana Banana’s studio” and has asked me to photograph her and Nova recreating them 😀

Thank you so much Ana. I absolutely love it! I’m so happy you were our newborn photographer! The photos are perfection and the video is such a unique and special touch.  I can’t stop watching the video or looking at his pics! 💙 Mandana

Our maternity photos made people cry tears of joy for our miracle pregnancy! Just when I didn’t think our experience could get any better, you captured the most beautiful photos of our baby boy months later…Thank you so much for being so passionate about what you do!

Oh my…Ana, this one is amazing too! Thank you so much 🙂

I have to tell you…you are truly an amazing woman. I had a chance to hear about how you got started in your career during the share session with the other photographers and I have so much respect for you as a mom and a business owner. I’ve heard my fair share of motivational speakers during my working career and none have touched me as much as hearing about you. Thank you…not only for the beautiful photos of my baby but for inspiring me 🙂 N.F

Dear Ana,

My family and I had a wonderful experience at your photography studio. The minute we walked into the door, we felt welcomed by your staff, and at ease in the warm inviting surroundings. “Impressed” is an understatement! Your creativity and expertise in shooting our newborn, Magnolia, was beyond our expectations. The photos turned out fantastic and you captured the vibe of our little family beautifully. We cannot wait to share these photos with our friends and family! Thank you so much.

When we were perusing the web looking and admiring pregnancy and newborn pictures, we came across Ana’s you-tube videos on what to wear at a maternity shoot. One video led to another which finally led us to her blog. One look at her photos and we were in love. While we researched many other places (some much closer to home) where newborn pictures are captured, we felt something was amiss. Ana’s photos have magic … something special that goes beyond capturing just the mom or the newborn. Ana is able to capture the essence of being pregnant – the joy, the glow and the happiness that comes from knowing that a new life is growing inside.

Ana and her staff worked patiently and with love while photographing our newborn. She has an amazing team and lots of focus on detail. Ana worked tirelessly to get all the shots she had planned and never made us feel rushed or in a hurry, especially with all the nursings and diaper/clothes changes. Ana is wonderful with her clients, though she is listed as a celebrity photographer she treated us nothing less than celebrities. We imagine she puts such time, patience and devotion no matter who her client.

We have been to both the maternity and newborn session and driving from Northern California to Tustin was absolutely worth every minute (yes even the journey that took 11 hrs!!!) to have had Ana capture our family pictures. The photos are a beautiful treasure and captures this special moment in the life of our family that we will always be able to go back to as our kids continue to grow. G.T

__________________________

My family has been using Ana for almost ten years!
Her calm presence always makes for a successful shoot with kids (and hubby)
She and her staff are super helpful with photo selection and framing etc

Her services are not a “bargain” but quality costs and is worth it!!
Pictures she has captured will forever be treasured.

Love her and her studio!

My 3 month old twins, husband and I have just got back home from our first studio session with Ana, and already a beautiful image of our girls had been emailed to us. We hadn’t seen any of the other photos from the session but already we knew we’d be thrilled with the results. Ana was not only extremely courteous as well as  professional, but she instinctively know how to make our babies relax (so much so that the session went on for two and a half hours), take care of them as she photographed them and, most importantly, make them look as beautiful as they truly are. The session was so much fun and she was so good with Lucia and Valentina that we nicknamed her “The Baby Whisperer”! We cannot recommend Ana enough and we shall be doing so to anyone who will listen.

 Ana took my maternity photos and newborn photos and they turned out gorgeous! I have received countless comments on her work. On top of that, she is a wonderful person. We had so much fun during both shoots! She is incredible with babies — my daughter was 9 days old and I had no reservations about Ana handling her during the shoot. Her assistant, Tiffany, is also a pleasure to work with through the proofing process. I highly recommend Ana! Megan A

 Lovely. Ana is lovely and every person in her beautiful studio… I am always amazed that they are able to do what they do. Life passes so quick and they get the best moments on film! With a team effort! Aimee R

We have been going to Ana for all of our special moments to be captured for over 3 years. She is truly amazing. We started going to her when we were expecting our twins and her work is impeccable, she is truly an artist. Her work is not cheap, so if you are looking for cheap pictures this is not your spot! The pictures here are exactly what you pay for…perfection! Ana and her staff which we have gotten to know over the years are wonderfully warm and accommodating. The pictures she captures are truly marvelous and would not be possible in some bargain photo place! All of us love Ana, she is always so sweet and nice ( i don’t know why soneone would think otherwise) and could not imagine having another photographer shoot our family because she has truly spoiled us! We will of course be coming back for many more shoots throughout the years and I’m sure I’ll continue to be amazed by her work! Mariam E

Thank you!!  I am stunned – I couldn’t be more thrilled!  And those mini photo books are just the cutest things!  I love them!  I can’t thank you enough!
Darrin and I both agree that even though we have 101 more practical places to use the money, that buying the package for the year is the best thing we could have 

The pictures are amazing!!!! Tears flow at how beautiful they are. We will treasure these. Thank you so much and for getting them to me quickly. Wow you and your team are incredible. Kirsten

I am dropping a line to thank you very much for the beautiful pregnancy album you sent a little while back.  It’s gorgeous and it was so gratifying to get to flip through the shots and see it all pulled together.  Thank you so much for your excellent work.

And looking forward to working with you again on some more beautiful prints and perhaps an album.

Hi Ana, I can not tell you how much I appreciate all of your support for our new foundation.  You are so kind and generous to offer something so amazing to us.  I believe that everything happens for a reason and by the Graces of God our families have come together to do some great things.  You are a wonderful person and our family is blessed to know you.  I cant even describe how wonderful and great it felt looking and reading your newsletter, it really did bring me to tears seeing it on the computer.  Also, I checked the website today for EGF and was brought to tears again, you guys are a great family. Also, I have to tell you, you guys did an incredible job on the product shots.  Please relay to the girls that they were great and did an awesome job.  You guys did an amazing and such professional job and I dont know how we will ever repay you. If there is anything we can ever do for you, please do not hesitate. Take care and thanks again.

Hi Ana- I am IN LOVE with the framed pictures I received!!!!!!!!!  I got the baby parts one over the weekend and then I got the one of Nicholas and I and the frame with the 4 pics of Nicholas on that bench today!  They turned out soooooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love the gold frame and matting, too!  It’s an excellent compliment to the dark wood frames! Anyway, thank you for the wonderful work….I can’t help but smile every time I walk past one of the pictures! -Carol

Ana — I’ve all good things to say about our experience with you!  And I so
love the photos.  You really captured what I was hoping — joy in
Megan’s face and the connection between the two of us.  I will be

discovered you earlier — but better late than never! Leslie

Dear Ana,
Well,….. it is dificult to find the words I need to articulate and express the delight, joy and heart melody singing within me!  Our photo order arrived this afternoon.. and contained within the SUPERBLY packed large envelope were the photos you took and printed of our sweet, happy, delightful Zaylin!!  Your work tells me volumes about you!  To be able to capture a childs emotions and quick interactions reveals someone behind the lens who delights in their subject, is at ease within themselves, open and responsive to childhoods innocence and subtle changes,…  an individual who DELIGHTS in children(!) and is a master of her art and craft.  You lovingly reveal your subjects inner spirit.  Zaylin is our third grandson, but only one who lives within the United States… I am just so grateful that Matthew and Tiffany discovered you~I have visited your website, exploring the various options and subsites… remarkable!!  I wish to THANK YOU for this moment-in-time of Zaylin’s life that you have captured for us to treasure and cherish forever.  Bruce and I (Opa and Omi) look forward to seeing the next installment of your art featuring our beloved wee one!!
Sincerely, with huge heart hugs attached,   Sharon M. Bindel
