Photographer, Ann Stratton spent her childhood surrounded by cameras. Her father was an amateur photographer who had his own darkroom; her grandfather was a photojournalist; and her great aunt was the first female naturalist photographer. As such, Ann truly lives and loves her work. With a formal education from Brooks Institute of Photography, her “real” education came from working as a professional photographer in NYC. Still living in New York, she is now also based in Dallas. Over the years, Ann's client list has grown to include Williams Sonoma, Oprah Magazine, Crate and Barrel, Godiva Chocolate, Martha Stewart, KitchenAid, Country Living and House Beautiful and many more.

“To work with Ann was both a pleasure and a learning experience. She is truly a professional, gifted with an artist’s eye for composition and color. Her taste is refined. She is an experienced perfectionist when it comes to attention to detail. Her personal style is to be soft-spoken and patient and easily the affable manager of the team at the photo shoot. I am so proud to have the results of our collaboration represented in my book.”  Ricky Lauren, Author of The Hamptons Food, Family and History
