Hi, I'm Ivanna.
I've always heard a picture is worth a thousand words but these photographs are worth so much more to me. It's the only thing I have where I can see how much my kids have changed. It's what brings me back and I relive that moment where my oldest, Oliver, didn't want to smile so I told my husband to put him over his shoulder upside down - making it the most memorable family picture up to date. My littlest, baby Parker - every time I see that image of him and I, seconds after giving birth, I get goosebumps. There's nothing more I've wanted form the world than to be a Mom and I thank God everyday for my boys.
As for me and photography, well... I've had a camera in my hands for quite a while now. I have worked for portrait studios, assisted for well-known photographers and I've had images published as well as displayed in galleries. In 2012, I graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Arts Photography. I have photographed almost everything under the sun -engagements, weddings, large event shows, models, fine art, real estate, food, images for magazines - somehow I always keep coming back to photographing kids. In 2015, I decided I was only photographing what truly makes me happy and opened Ready Freddie Studios where I can specialize in photographing maternity, newborn, babies, kiddos and families.
There's something magical about walking around my house and starring at all the photographs I have hung on the wall knowing that one day they will belong to my kids. I want that magic for you, I want you to forget about having the perfect family photo and just spend a couple of hours having fun with your family. I promise you - you won't regret it!
