today’s special moments… tomorrow’s priceless treasures

Once kids are in the mix, life is nothing but crazy. After work you’re bussing them to and fro with sports practice, scouts, and play dates (you name it) and hoping that a granola bar you grabbed on your way out the door passes as a balanced dinner. You deserve to take an afternoon and hit pause for you, your husband, and kids on the “running schedule of life” and get your photos taken together with Ann Blake Photography. 

Ann’s family photo sessions are nothing like the mall portraits your mom had you do in matching sweaters and frilly dresses from the 80’s. Instead, you and your family will have actual fun in front of the camera. You’ll tell stories, break out in tickle fights, cuddle, and lift your children in the air. Because when you’re out there, in front of a rustic barn, on the streets of downtown Philly, or in the comfort of your own home – you will truly feel together as you share a real laugh with your loved ones.


We get to know each other over a cup of coffee or on the phone!

Great portraits start with a great relationship. I want to understand your vibe, what you love to do as a family, and what you envision for a session. This is also a great time to get a tour of the studio and browse through our portrait art and client closet!

We make things official and reserve your session date on the calendar.

Once you’ve decided that we’re a good fit, I’ll email you a portrait session proposal and you’ll make your deposit online. Then, we’re all set!

Love, laughter and time to be you at your family session.

We’ll go on an outdoor adventure, I’ll travel to your home, or we can plan to meetup at my studio in downtown Narberth. Whatever, we decide it’s going to be a fun day! I’ll roll around with your kiddos and even convince dad to crack a smile while he hangs in there for one more photo!

Join me for a portrait reveal party and take home your frame-worthy photos!

Within a few days of your session, you’ll be invited to to the studio for a personalized reveal session to view your beautiful, fully retouched portraits, and to pick your favorite images to take home with you . We’ll make a party out of it with a glass of champagne and your favorite decadent dessert from my favorite Parisian bakery in town.

Enjoy your beautiful heirlooms.

As USBs go extinct and hard drives crash, you’ll have nothing to fear when your wall art and family album arrives.  Once your portraits are displayed in your home or you are turning the pages of you album with your family next to you, you will be so happy you did this for them. You’ll be able to hold your family’s story in your hands and reconnect with your family’s legacy at every glance.



I knew Ann was the right pick for my portrait session because she’s talented, has a natural knack for capturing the beauty of the moment, and is a trained photographer. My favorite part of the portrait experience was seeing her in her element. I remember when she just got started!

Ann was sweet, kind and easy. We wanted a warm, homey feeling in our pictures and seeing her work, we knew she was the one. Our images were magical, straight out of a People’s magazine shoot! 

She made sure every detail was perfect. And the fact that I could have my session in our home… was amazing!
