My name is Anna Salek, and I'm a photographer based in St Helens Merseyside.

I love  creating timeless photographs and I believe in magic of beauty in simplicity. I hope that you can see in my pictures that less is way more,I try to show that at least :)

I was born in Poland , from 2007  I live and work in the UK.  My journey with photography  began from  taking pictures of my friends and their children, but  I truly fallen in  love with  photography  when my daughter was born in 2015 . Since then my life has changed forever. I finally found my destiny.

I'm offering individual/family portraits, actors/performers headshots and modelling portfolio session.

If you like my style and you would like to talk about your photoshoot in my studio, please leave me a message in the contact section so we can start planning our session.
