MEET ANN JESSUP

I love being an award winning, published photographer! I’m also a mom to my precious fur babies, a wife to my loving husband, a daughter, sister, sister-in-law and aunt. It wasn’t always this way though. I spent 25 years in the Rocky Mountain West in an IT career that I truly enjoyed before moving back to my hometown in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. In 2013, after my my father died, I slipped into a funk. So, I dusted off my camera and just started shooting things that I thought were interesting. I found myself taking lots of photos of people just living life – an older couple walking holding hands, little girls fishing, a boy playing hide and seek behind a grandfather oak tree – and soon discovered I had a talent for capturing genuine moments of human connection. Fast forward several hundred hours of photography education later and DNA Photography was born. The name is actually a reflection of my husbands’ and my names: Dean aNd Ann, and serendipitously is also the building block of life. Just as your family is the building block of your life. I’m eternally grateful for the privilege of capturing your family’s genuine moments of connection…from the tiniest, newest little members all the way to maturity.

I specialize in newborn, maternity, childhood and family portraiture, with a timeless style and a touch of whimsy. I have a full-service, boutique-style home studio located in Clearwater, FL. I also travel around the area, with frequent sessions in Tampa, Clearwater and along the beautiful gulf coast beaches. Please call me at the studio, or visit the contact us page, so we can schedule your session today!
