Hi Anna, thank you for being with us!

Tell us a little about you.

I'm Anna Kuperberg and I live in San Francisco. I started photography in college. I majored in photography at Washington University in St. Louis and then I went to grad school and got an MFA in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute. I'm glad I did that, but I am over-educated. You do not need to get so much education to do photography, just go out and do it!

How do you describe your style?

Ordered Chaos. More and more I am looking for complicated nuanced stories. Things that have contradictions, like the delight and the weariness of having a newborn, or the love/hate moments between siblings. I like tension and bittersweet.

What or who really inspires you?

The Magnum Website. And here is one beautiful thing that I just discovered: http://siandavey.com/ongoing/looking-for-alice/

What is your best tip for photographing babies?

No props please! They are perfect just as they are. Babies like to snuggle, so they should snuggle. I don't like to see a baby in a salad bowl or on a bookshelf all alone.

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.

But wait. What does “almost perfect” mean? Well, these are the planners that have teeny tiny aesthetic defects. Don’t worry! They haven’t been totally wrecked, they just have small ink marks or scratches that occurred during transit to our office. You can see images of these small damages below.
