des moines iowa photographer

Hi sweet friend! I'm Abby, the photographer behind the lens at Abby Ann Photography. I'm a self taught photographer who has spent four years behind the lens. I love photography because I love to preserve important moments for a lifetime.  

The heart behind Abby Ann Photography is to capture the beauty God created in each person that I get the honor of working with. I believe God created each of us with beauty and purpose and my vision is for that to reflect in my photography. I want my clients to feel that they are beautiful, loved, and have a purpose. I’m passionate about photography because it allows me to capture emotion, to take a moment in time and freeze it to make a lasting memory. There are so many moments in our life and they go quickly, I think it is so important to preserve them, photography makes that all possible.

My photographic style is light + airy, natural, and captures your unique story. I'm a natural light enthusiast and I love capturing real moments with my clients. I believe in using a minimalist editing style to preserve natural beauty.
