Award-winning photography by Pamela Anticole

Photographing families is in my heart. I do it for the kids, to leave them the legacy of their memories in print. I do it for the picture takers in each family, so they can also exist in their family history. And I do it for me, because I interact with the world through the lens of my camera, and I want to meet family after family after family. Professional photographer for over 15 years, I started in news and street work before specializing in weddings for a long time. I am so very happy to have found a network of documentary family photographers like myself who believe in the importance of photographing family life candidly, authentically, skillfully, and with story. I would love to meet you!
