Ana Brandt is an award win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher, author, and teacher who has been spe­cial­iz­ing in preg­nancy and new­born imagery for over 15 years. Her clas­sic images stand the test of time as her clients return again and again to doc­u­ment their preg­nancy and new­born arrivals. Known for her end­less patience, Ana believes that to cre­ate a busi­ness that lasts, you need more then great images of sleepy new­borns. You need to cre­ate a visual his­tory of your life because “to know where you’re going, it’s impor­tant to know where you came from.”

Learn the Art of Preg­nancy and New­born pho­tog­ra­phy by learn­ing how Ana has built her busi­ness one client at a time.

Ana will dis­cuss best mar­ket­ing meth­ods, best sales prod­ucts, and how to keep clients com­ing back again and again.

She’ll share new ideas such as incor­po­rat­ing video into ses­sions and mar­ket­ing, as well as using the power of social media.

Ana has been pub­lished in Rangefinder Mag­a­zine three times, was nom­i­nated for a 2014 Women in Busi­ness Award and is a fre­quent edu­ca­tor for Besides her pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness, Ana runs TAoPaN (The Art of Preg­nancy and New­born) which pro­vides men­tor­ing and work­shops plus an entire cloth­ing line for pho­tog­ra­phers choos­ing to focus on the preg­nancy and new­born stage.

Her first book, The Art of Preg­nancy and New­born, won best Por­trait Cat­e­gory for her cover image from the Professional

pink maternityPho­tog­ra­phers of Cal­i­for­nia. Ana released her sec­ond book, Baby + Facts = What Every New­born Pho­tog­ra­pher Needs to Know, and is cur­rently work­ing ona third enti­tled “Belly Babies” that will fea­ture new­borns in their Mother’s belly cast. Ana’s lat­est work can be seen in Ali­cia Silverstone’s new book, The Kind Mama.
