2018

December 19, 2018

Having shot my last ever wedding a few months ago, I end this year purely a family photographer. So, for the first time ever, my end of year review is nothing but family.

Below is an illustration of everything that moves me – human connection, stories, personality, emotion, energy, adventure, joy, humour… these families have it all and more, and to be invited to share in it is a complete joy and adventure in itself.

Special mention has to go to lovely Rudy, whose arrival into the world I was privileged to witness and who I’m now absolutely honoured to call my godson. I know with absolute certainty I’ll go my whole life never photographing anything more mind-blowingly wonderful than that πŸ™‚

Thank you so much to all these wonderful people, big and small, who allowed me to enjoy and document a little bit of their magic this year. You’re all ace.

    You’re a master Anna, so many real moments captured just proves how skilled you are in building trust with the little people. That’s so hard to do but you make it look so natural. Love them.

    Anna,

    This is so so amazing, I miss your wedding work and you was one of the first artists to inspire me to shoot weddings and have been a huge fanboy since.

    The beauty and feelings you capture now in your family work is so so beautiful.

    No one quite does it like a Hardy does it.

    Incredible

    Love your work, love your edit, love the emotion and personalities you capture and how you see light, I just bloody love it all! I also love your honesty and openness towards photography and the bravery you’ve shown in evolving your own business, I absolutely take my hat off and can’t wait to see where the journey takes you.

    All the best for 2019 and beyond Anna! x

    So much life and personality in these photos! I had to do a double take at the boy staring at the painting of the gates; just brilliant. Lots of parents are going to be over the moon with these little moments of life that you’ve captured for them.

    Aaaaah Anna. I’m so glad that you decided to focus on families. These are sublime.

    Is it ok to look at all of these and want to breed for life? Asking for a friend….

    So thrilled to have met you properly in Derby and can’t wait for more hangs this year xxx
