The Shine Studio Photography

brand + product + entrepreneur photography
shine, inside and out.

Through Brand, Product, and Custom-Curated Stock Photography, Anna Laura is able to serve women entrepreneurs, brands, and businesses. Whether you're showcasing your products or services, making sure you have a stockpile of custom made  images for your site and social media, you can be confident Anna Laura will capture stunning images to help up-level your brand's online content. 


With more consumers turning to online shopping and the prevalent use of social media, high quality images are a must-have. That is where Anna Laura comes in.


"Brand Photography is my passion. I’m here to give back the most important asset you have as a business owner: your time."

Anna Laura has been recognized by Peerspace as one of the 10 Best Lifestyle Photographers in Philadelphia (her former home) and one of the 10 Best Product Photographers in Austin. Here's what Peerspace had to say:

"Anna’s goal in photography is to foster a strong sense of community through images. She understands the value of great images for budding businesses or established brands looking for some new energy in their content. 

Her lifestyle images are light and airy, with bright colors and natural posing. Anna has a great eye for emotion but also knows when to bring your brand or product to the center of attention — this balanced approach creates a well-rounded package for any entrepreneur."

- Peerspace, June 6, 2019

Anna Sommer started The Shine Studio to help businesses and brands find their voice through the visual medium. And since more and more people rely on e-commerce than ever, Anna has tailored her work to meet your online needs. From social media to welcome page images, her photography carries just the right notes to encourage potential clients to look closer.

Anna's style pairs nicely not only with product images but food, editorial, portraiture, and women’s branding photography as well!
