02. THE STORY

Mary’s Meals provides life changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children every day they attend school.

The writing and design projects I take on are rooted in the idea that small businesses can make a positive impact on this world. That's why your trust in me funds a monthly contribution to Mary's Meals. Did you know? Around 64 million of the world’s hungriest children do not attend school because, in order to survive, they have to work or beg. Mary's Meals works to provide children one nutritious meal per day at a place of education and is a powerhouse of goodness in this world.

For me, entrepreneurship began with a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies and a mediocre food blog.

I'm  Ana! Woods! Copywriter, website designer, and communications strategist for creatives who are ready to leverage their unique story to create a more compelling and profitable brand.



It all started with a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies in my parent's kitchen...

With love, Ana

Over the past six years my work has been seen in some of the leading industry publications & I've been honored as one of the Top Wedding Photographers in Des Moines. Those accomplishments are wonderful, yes. But you are the reason I keep picking up the camera. Your stories. Your legacy. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

"We loved working with Ana! She was efficient but warm and oh so patient with our large family. She captured the style of our day perfectly You can't find anyone better."

"Ana made us feel super comfortable and all our guests loved her. We are so happy we chose Ana to capture our wedding and wholeheartedly recommend her!"



My body of work blends intentional storytelling & serendpitious moments for a sophisticated and gratifying photography experience. 

Its funny, isn't it?  How our lives change in an instant. One moment I'm feeding our backyard chickens, & the next I'm photographing the most exquisite, black tie wedding in town.

I rinsed away the dirt, slipped on a black dress, & clasped my wedding pearls with a smile.
