Class of 2020


A little glitch.

You are ridiculously proud of your child and their achievements. But these days, celebrations are a little tricky to navigate.

Why not celebrate your child's achievements by letting them have their very own magazine style photoshoot? We can do

  • a cap and gown
  • your prom dress or suit
  • your favourite hobby, instrument, sports equipment
  • casual clothes
  • all dressed up
  • in the studio or on location

This is an incredible experience that ends up incredible photos that will reveal to your child the incredible person they are.

TESTIMONIALS


Anita has left me with much more than pictures. She has left me with a huge appreciation, after a mere glimpse, of the portrait artist's craft. And she left me with images that capture my soul in a way that I couldn't detect. In order to understand this, you have to do it. I would encourage everyone to go to Anita to see themselves through her lens. I told Anita it was like going to a spa for the soul. Thank you, Anita. I will treasure your/my photos forever.

What a magical day Claire and I had with Anita! Her enthusiasm was infectious (not that we needed much encouragement Her eye for light and composition is impeccable, and shehas a knack for making a young model relax and show the world how BEAUTIFUL she truly is! No mother could ask for a greater gift for her daughter than to be photographed by Anita and see herself through the eyes of those who appreciate true beauty!

Cheryl Talbot

Simply an amazing experience!! Anita is not only a very talented photographer; her style and caring personality are truly outstanding. From the time I walked into her studio Anita made me feel welcome and at ease. The entire experience was beyond my expectations. Anita does not just take photos; she is a true artist, someone who has the gift to capture the essence of the look you are trying to convey. It was a truly awesome experience…. Thank you Anita!!

Anita Watkins is the brilliance behind the camera of my recent photos. On some level I transformed that day into the full possibility of what I could be. That is magical. When you feel that feeling once, it makes it easier to go back to feeling it again and again. Then you will reach your full potential.

Angela Patterson

Anita Watkins is not only highly professional but a ton of fun! A session with her just whizzes by with her outgoing, enthusiastic personality and sheer passion for what she does. The images she takes are always stunning which has a lot to do with how she creates a very relaxed, supportive environment that brings out the best you possible. As someone who is rather shy and self-conscious in front of a camera, I have never been more impressed with a photographer and more pleased with the final products. She truly made me feel comfortable in front of a camera and I highly recommend Anita!

About Anita Watkins

I am a portrait and personal branding photographer for people who want to return to their offbeat, audacious and fearless selves.
I believe it is cool to secretly want to trade your minivan in for a Miata.
I believe that Disney is great for a family trip, once.
I believe that it is perfectly ok to build your wings AS you are falling off the cliff. In fact, it is the only way to live.
My mission is to empower you to move past your fears and have kickass photographs as proof.
I am Anita Watkins. Always on. Slightly off.
