Capturing Beautiful Imagery of Couples and families Who Cherish Those Fleeting Moments in Time.
I'm a fun-loving, spontaneous full-time photographer.
I pride myself on the experience, the fun, and the results that every ACP client feels when they look back at their photographs. This is why I consistently receive 5/5 star ratings. I consider myself a full-service photographer, meaning I will be there for you from the moment you book your session to the packaging of your print products. You will receive styling assistance for stress-free preparation and I provide a wide selection of professional prints and heirlooms alongside digitals for you to choose from. Client satisfaction from start to finish is important to me!
I am so excited to hear from you, so let's chat and let's get your session date on my calendar!
Hey, I'm Anneliese!
Mari & kyle
Anneliese was very responsive and assisted in finding places to do our session as we were unfamiliar with the area, and was very patient with our 4 kids who were not 100% cooperative and managed to get beautiful, candid shots we will treasure. We're very happy with our photos and would use her again if we're ever back in the area!
Kara & Adam

Anneliese did a newborn shoot with our twin girls, and I was blown away! Photographing newborns takes an incredible amount of time and patience, and she did an incredible job!! The pictures turned out absolutely stunning- better than I even expected!
Bryanna & John
Thank you Anneliese for doing our sons newborn lifestyle photos. They turned out so great! She took the time to find the right poses, we loved the fine detail photos she took! She was so patient with my 2 year old toddler!! Can’t thank her enough! Def book her, you will not be disappointed!!
Anneliese was so sweet and took beautiful photos of me... she was very patient with me and very responsive, the photos were perfect the lighting for my skin to my face was perfect!! Highly recommend her!!
As the saying goes "time flies when you're having fun". I try to live life with this in mind and it's no different in my business, that's the thing I love most about photography- the creativity of it, laughing with clients, and playing with their children!
I don't do classic stiff posing that will make you feel uncomfortable. My style is candid, authentic- I aim to capture in between moments that are most genuine. I direct my clients through prompts, this helps to guide clients in placement of their hands and to get them to engage and connect while remaining natural. It will sound something like this: "ok mom and dad, I want you both to hold your little one in between each other close, snuggle in and love him/her up" or "Mike I want you to wrap your arms around Gabe's waist, lean around and kiss her on her temple. Gabe I want you to reach up and place your hand on Mike's cheek and close your eyes." I will talk with you throughout your session, whether it's an engagement, maternity, lifestyle newborn, or family session - and you are not going to even realize that a photoshoot is happening!
I take the time to get to know my clients. Everyone is unique! Some clients are shy and need a little more cheering while others are much more spontaneous. Almost everyone has something they don't like whatever that may be (so I avoid it)…there's no "one size fits all".
Q: When it comes to scheduling our session time, are you flexible?
Q: Do you have a studio?
Q: What should we wear?
A: I will work with whatever time is best for you! I always recommend golden hour which is about an hour before sunset-this is a time when the sunlight is the softest and most flattering BUT I understand it can be a tough time for families with little ones especially during summer when sunset is much later. I can create beautiful photos in any lighting situation! Need a session time in the late afternoon? That's fine, I often will find a shady area to escape the direct sun or utilize surrounding buildings. Ran a little behind (hey it happens) and lost light? That's fine! I can make flash look hella good with my off-camera flash modifiers. I'm not overly concerned with the aesthetic of my instagram that EVERY session has to be one particular way or one particular time of day. Half the fun is the ability to create unique photos, in unique locations, with whatever lighting is available. Your the client and these are your photos!
A: I do not have a studio. I mostly shoot outdoors all year round- the cold doesn't scare me and neither do the dead trees, haha! I'm always open to ideas my clients have as to locations but if you're not sure, I have a healthy list of my fav locations in the WNY area. If your session is in the gloomier months you can never go wrong with the urban landscape Buffalo has to offer, I mean, our city is pretty awesome!
Another location that is an option is your own home! This is popular for my newborn lifestyle clients- literally nothing beats a photoshoot in the comfort of your home especially when you have a new babe calling the shots. I love these sessions because they lend a very, very personal touch to your images.
A: This is a very popular question that I get ALL the time. Once you're booked you will receive a prep & style guide that discusses a lot about outfits and what to wear and what to avoid. You will also receive 'Style & Select', a digital styling tool that allows you to fill out a questionnaire and through the questionnaire you're then provided customized outfit coordination, styling tips, and direct shopping links-it's simply amazing. I also have a client closet of gorgeous designer maternity gowns for my mama's-to-be!
I can't wait to hear all about whatever chapter you're in! Whether you are engaged and planning your dream wedding, expecting your first baby, or growing your family, I'm here to work out aaall of the details and set you up with your best photography session yet!
