offbeat. audacious. fearless.
I can solve it.
Inside, you feel young and strong but not sure if people see that on the outside.
You have 100's if not 1000's of photos of yourself, but when asked to produce one for an event, you have nothing you are proud to use.
Your boss keeps nagging you to give them a photo for the company website.
You want to get on a dating website but are too embarrassed to use the photos you already have.
You feel unseen.
You think you aren't photogenic.
I AM YOUR FAIRY GODMOTHER!

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.
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!!
“Where is a good place to start??? One of the things that hold people back from doing portraits, is the thought that "I am not photogenic". Anita makes this clear on her website that she believes; (and will prove it time and time again) that we all are. "We all are", in front of the right photographer that is. Her amazing attitude only to be out done by her photography skills. The 2.5 hours session flew by, and we had a great time. Mostly just having a conversation about "other things" and not about our face, or smile, or attitude. The result is a very natural view into the soul of the subject, and what's better than that?”
"Wow! Where to begin… Anita you are a fantastic photographer and an amazing person! I was initially apprehensive about doing a photo shoot with you but you had blown that nervousness out of the water. Thank goodness because the photos are amazing! Anyone who has second guesses or is nervous about working with here – don’t be! She brought an energy to my session that I have never witnessed before in a person. She truly is a master behind the lens and every minute is evidence of that. Anita is truly one amazing photographer and like I said – you wouldn’t be doing this if you were truly passionate about photography! Thanks for making me look so good:)"
“Anita Watkins was an amazing photographer! Not only was she very professional in the photoshoot, but she was also very informative and quick to respond with questions and concerns. She was very understanding and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera! My photos turned out amazing! And I would recommend her name to anyone who is interested in getting professional photos done! If I could give more than 5 stars I definitely would!”
