Hello!  I'm so happy you are here!  My name is Anna Pauly and I am a photographer in Springfield, Illinois, specializing in senior portraits, families, and children.

I have always had a passion for creating: whether it be photographs, paintings, drawings, or with the written word.  When I discovered photography, though, it was love at first sight.  

I first learned the art of photography over 20 years ago in a dark room, rolling my own film, developing, and printing the old-fashioned way.  While my process has evolved out of the smelly darkroom, my passion and love for the art has remained the same.  I love capturing the beauty of a moment and preserving it forever.  It is a great honor to be able to provide this service to others.

Aside from being a photographer, I am a mother to four crazy (crazy wonderful!) kids, wife to an amazing man, and travel enthusiast.  It is my mission to see as much of this world as possible before I leave it, and I'm incredibly lucky to have an awesome bunch of people (my friends and family) to see it with.‚Äč
