Anna Pociask Photography, LLC bio picture
  • How in the world do you say my last name?!!! Po-check...now that we have the awkwardness out of the way..lets move onto the good stuff. ;)

    I am a child of God and a believer of Jesus Christ. A nurturer and trainer of one amazing daughter and one super sweet son.

    I LOVE capturing romance, turning engagement sessions into a fun date, and enhancing chemistry with my couples.
    I mainly specialize in working with couples and weddings--and love seeing marriages succeed. Be sure to check out my Monday Marriage Matters blog posts. :)
    My 2nd specialty is working with highschool senior girls. And my passion is to see one girl after another see the true beauty within once seeing their images.

    Inspired by The Creator and His nature all around me. Inspired to impress. Inspired to inspire others.

    I have been told that I am known for drawing one into the artistry of the moment, fluidly arresting an instant in time, while enabling the audience to continue the moment in its mind's eye. There's a magical impression left on one's soul after viewing such photography, as it becomes visual food for the soul..... POETRY STANDING STILL, BUT ALIVE IN YOUR SOUL.

    “We must hunger after the beautiful and good"... (George Eliot)

E-session: Birmingham Alabama

I love when a couple has a special place they love to go on dates, and they ask me to take their engagement photos there. I am always up to shooting at new and beautiful places. I could shoot there many many more times and still not touch the surface of lovely spots for romance.;)

As you can see the sunlight was divine!


Faith in the unseen: Maternity Session

 

I was left in tears today once reading the sweet message this mother to be sent me this morning:

“I just wanted to thank u so much for taking such wonderful photos of us. Just the glimpse that u have posted so far of our photo session has us floored and amazed. You truly captured our love and thankfulness for or little girl.
I wanted to share w u the background to this true blessing.
We tried for 2 years to have this miracle. We lost the first 2 pregnancies ( one was an early loss at 6 weeks; the other was an ectopic pregnancy that caused the baby to stop growing and it was life threatening to me and put me in the hospital). We prayed and prayed and just held on to faith; I always felt in my heart that it would happen, that God does want me to b a mother. Although what we went through was so hard and confusing, we held on to the belief that it would happen for us. We had to do IVF since my eggs were very few and of very poor quality. I gave myself 6 shots a day and prayed it would work ( we had a 40 percent chance). And it did!!
Any way! I just wanted to share our story w u to let u know just how special this pregnancy is and how wonderful your pics make us feel.
It means so much that you’ve captured such beauty and grace.
We r soooooo excited to see the final set of pics”

This touches my heart more than you know, and I know there are so many other women out there who struggle with infertility, and I pray their day will come when they are able to be with child. Andrea, remember when I was saying there is significance behind the dogwood tree….well, I think you will appreciate this as it relates to your faith story… Although there is  a season we can not see the beautiful white/pink blooms of the dogwoods, we can see traces of what is to be. As you knew you could become pregnant, but you went through a waiting period of uncertainty, and had to trust and wait till Gods perfect timing.

When Christ was on earth, the dogwood grew
To a towering size with a lovely hue.
Its branches were strong and interwoven
And for Christ's cross its timbers were chosen.
Being distressed at the use of this wood,
Christ made a promise which still holds good;
"Not ever again shall the dogwood grow
To be large enough for such a tree, and so
Slender and twisted it shall always be
With cross-shaped blossoms for all to see.
The petals shall have bloodstains marked in brown
And in the blossoms center a thorny crown.
All who see it will think of me,
Nailed to a cross from a dogwood tree.
Protected and cherished this tree shall be
A reflection of all of my agony."

 

When you look back on your maternity pictures with the dogwood trees surrounding you, may you remember God….the One that placed your blessing inside you.

 

Can you guess what they’re having?:)I love all the pink all the way to her fingernails, his tie, and those precious little shoes!

 

I can not wait to meet your beautiful daughter!

I ran across your work through Facebook. It’s absolutely beautiful and SO inspiring. God has truly blessed you with such an amazing talent! Your style really stands out as fresh and dreamy. I’m definitely a new fan. : )

Bow tie party for my son!

 

My baby boy is already ONE!!! He had a big bash with cuteness to galore. It was a bow tie theme, so my awesome momma made his bow tie and suspenders, and all the favors were bow ties and suspenders.:)

Jaden was quite polite when he ate his cake, did not make much of a mess.

My mom and I designed and made the invites from scratch. I think they turned out pretty darn cute!:)

I had the little boys put their footprints on a canvas to sign their names.:)

Jaden is good to go now with all his boy toys! No more pink toys of his big sisters!;)


Mom - March 27, 2012 - 10:13 am

Love all the pics, can’t wait to order my favs to frame and add to Jaden’s album!
The party was a great success!!! Loved helping you ! I can’ t believe he is one! Where did that year go!! Love you all give the kiddos a kiss and hug from Nana!!!

Maternity: Huntsville Alabama

Tonight as I was about to wrap up this glorious maternity session I asked the mother-to-be if she praised God for the blessing in her belly…she said with no hesitation, “absolutely”….I then asked her to raise her hands up to God as if she was thanking and praising Him for the child that she was carrying inside her…..this only brought me back to thinking of the great love God has for each of us….

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalms 139:13-16

Fine Art Photographer: Huntsville Alabama

I wanted to get some fresh images up on the blog today, since the quality looks SO much better on here than Facebook.;)

On the first image I was able to get out some of my lighting and play around for a new feel to my fine art images.

The beautiful creature of a lady–Leah plans to pursue modeling/acting…and what an honor it was for me to shoot some images for her to use to submit to modeling agencies. She obviously was an easy subject to photograph.:)

As we were shooting, I was expressing to her how much I love photographing women, to bring out confidence and prove to women they are beautiful. And if that is something YOU are needing, I would LOVE to work with you! Enjoy a tiny glimpse into our shoot…2 indoor and 2 outdoor.
