Meet Ann Landstrom of Ann Photography in Carlsbad

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ann Landstrom.

Ann, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
After leaving my abusive husband I was forced to provide a safe haven for my son at the time he was 6 years old. I had no money, no home and no career. I loved photography and turned my passion into my business.

My greatest accomplishment has been to value myself and my work. I have studied with the best in my Industry and created gallery quality art and I have taken my average sale per client from $500 to $3000 running a home based studio.

My home based business did allowed me to study and grow while providing a loving home for my youngest son, sharing my obstacles and challenges inspires confidence and self-value in my clients. Sharing my weaknesses and struggles openly has turned into being my greatest strength as I am able to emphasize and encourage how people perceive themselves and it shows up in my work.

I have worked really hard and now own a full service studio in downtown Carlsbad Village where I provide studio wardrobe, hair and makeup service and in studio or location sessions for portraits, headshots/branding, boudoir and seniors portraits.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
After my divorce I was financially challenged for many years and I had to work really hard to manage to survive.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Ann Photography – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I create Magazine style portraits for everyday people. I create an experience that empowers people and see themselves in a new light that they might forgotten about or never seen in themselves before. I am proud that I have built my studio up from nothing in less than two years.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I am looking forward to building relationships with businesses in San Diego and help them grow through creating a brand for them with my photography work.
