My name is Anna and I'm a freelance photographer and copywriter,
based in Northampton, UK.
I work with independent businesses and makers, helping to show their best work and tell their story online...
I've always written; journals, Harry Potter based newspapers, gingerbread men novellas... I remember owning a Barbie typewriter at an early age, and using it to write repeated letters to anyone who'd give me the chance. During my teens I began my first blog, the elder sister of which can be found on here on my site.
Photography was a later passion; one midwinter night during my year in France I clicked "Purchase" on a DSLR camera I had been eyeing up for the previous few months. I knew nothing about photography and underwent the steepest of learning curves, and four months later I was asked if I could create professional imagery. I said yes and the rest, as they say, is history.
About My Work
I studied languages at university and began writing copy for the women's independent boutique I worked at from mid-teens to my early twenties. It was love at first keystroke: I was so proud when customers would tell me they instantly recognised the tone of my work, and that they read each piece's copy because they knew it would bring them a smile.
After dreaming of my own business and soaking up all the experience I could, I returned home from a summer working in the US and began my freelance career. I was approached by my first ever clients and have loved the journey ever since. I've learned more than I could ever have imagined since starting in 2016, and have loved every day that's come my way.
TELL YOUR STORY ONLINE
I work with clients to show their best work, and create a digital presence that they can feel proud of.
Offering both copywriting and photography means that I get to understand my clients more deeply; overseeing their written and visual identity helps me to create content that is cohesive... I'm also able to lighten the load of running a business by offering both skills, with my social media services letting me give still more freedom to those I work with.
I'm so, so fiercely proud of the makers, creatives and businesses I have been able to partner with so far; it's an amazing feeling to see their hard work flourish, and to know that they feel more connected with their online presence than ever before.
