A New Mirror Design
Today my former boss, Ana Maria Correa-Montgomery, happened to have a photoshoot right by my house and called me up. Why would my former boss from an IT organization have a photoshoot? Because after early retirement she found her true calling in photograpgy. And why would she call me up? Because she wanted to visit.
Mind you, I have been sick for a week: pajamas, tea, VERY casual attire appropriate for my horizontal state. But at the sound of her voice I cheer up, old times…
So, I crawl out of bed. Both me and Arcady Milrud put on more presentable casuals and wait for her to come.
She does, as always, bursting with enthusiasm. We have a nice chat and then she does not offer to take our pictures. She orders me and Arcady to submit. “You get ready, Nina, comb your hair and put on lipstick, I will just run to the car to bring my camera”. In 5 minutes she comes back, laden with equipment and lugging a huge case. How I now wish to have taken a picture of Ana in her full magnificent gear. But, alas, I never think of it in time. She looks like a modern day Diana, laden with huge cameras which look like assault weapons. Maybe they are. The only reason her small frame does not crumble under the weight is that she is VERY strong under all that deceptive slender elegance.
And then she marches us outside and starts maneuvering us “look that way, no, turn your body this way, now, look at each other and smile, etc”. And flash, and click and change weapons and flash and click and flash and click. And then it is over.
And then we see the photos. Dear God!!!! We are young and happy. Our faces are radiant and smooth and, shall I say it: beautiful! (See the AMC album below)
Hooray for Ana Maria Correa-Montgomery!!!! This is what she did for us and is doing for her clients day after day through her blossoming photography business at http://www.anamontgomery.photography/
What can I say? Will those pictures make looking at our faces in mirrors every day a bit jarring? Oh, well, it is jarring anyway…
But here’s an idea: what if I print out those photos and affix them over our mirrors so that the glamorous images are all we see? Would that be cool or what?

Ana Montgomery is truly one of the most talented people I have met. Her passion and enthusiasm for her work is unlike anything else. My husband and I have been beyond happy with her work since day 1. Our engagement photo shoot with Ana was so much fun, and we are so thrilled to have captured such beautiful moments, and beautiful pictures. On our wedding day, Ana and her team worked so hard the whole day, and was always making sure we were happy and getting the shots we want! I can't wait to see our wedding album after seeing the engagement album! Ana gave us such breathtaking pictures after our wedding that both of our moms LOVED! They had tears in there eyes every time they look back at the pictures. Ana, THANK YOU. Thank you for capturing such amazing pictures on our most special day!!

Ana is a truly amazing photographer. She knows how to direct you and very knowledgeable of what she is passionate about. This is my second time with her, and I am completely satisfied with the result.

I highly recommend her, and such a great energy during the photo shoot.

Ana did a beautiful guestbook for my boyfriend and I. It came out more than I expected. It was the perfect size and the editing she did on the pictures were phenomenal. Thanks again!
The guestbook is empty.
