I have been specializing in pregnancy and newborn photography for over 14 years in Southern California. A native New Yorker I came the OC and built my client base one baby at a time! I love the pregnancy and newborn stage, and it is a part of my life! I am a Mama of three beautiful babes and run a studio in Old Town Tustin. I shoot natural and studio light, and truly believe that our past paths help us navigate our future.
I am also the Founder of TAoPaN (The Art of Pregnancy and Newborn) helping photographers around the world in their own quest for learning the most they can about pregnancy and newborn imagery.
"My 3 month old twins, husband and I have just got back home from our first studio session with Ana, and already a beautiful image of our girls had been emailed to us. We hadn't seen any of the other photos from the session but already we knew we'd be thrilled with the results. Ana was not only extremely courteous as well as professional, but she instinctively know how to make our babies relax (so much so that the session went on for two and a half hours), take care of them as she photographed them and, most importantly, make them look as beautiful as they truly are. The session was so much fun and she was so good with Lucia and Valentina that we nicknamed her "The Baby Whisperer"! We cannot recommend Ana enough and we shall be doing so to anyone who will listen."
"My family and I had a wonderful experience at Ana Brandt photography. The minute we walked into the door, we felt welcomed by the staff, and at ease in the warm inviting studio. "Impressed" is an understatement! We brought our 9 year old son and our 3 week old daughter with us to capture a series of family photos. Ana's creativity and expertise in shooting our newborn, Magnolia, was beyond our expectations. The photos turned out fantastic and she captured the vibe of our little family beautifully. We cannot wait to share these photos with our friends and family!"
"So glad to know you and to be able to have you help us capture our daughters’ growthWOW WOW WOW!! Those pictures are even better than I imagined!! I love them so much!! Thank you!! I am stunned – I couldn’t be more thrilled! And those mini photo books are just the cutest things! I love them! I can’t thank you enough!
Darrin and I both agree that even though we have 101 more practical places to use the money, that buying the package for the year is the best thing we could have
The pictures are amazing!!!! Tears flow at how beautiful they are. We will treasure these. Thank you so much and for getting them to me quickly. Wow you and your team are incredible."

"Hi Ana- I am IN LOVE with the framed pictures I received!!!!!!!!!

"ell,….. it is dificult to find the words I need to articulate and express the delight, joy and heart melody singing within me! Our photo order arrived this afternoon.. and contained within the SUPERBLY packed large envelope were the photos you took and printed of our sweet, happy, delightful Zaylin!!
