By Matthew Kent- Ann-Marie Finn quit her full time job to pursue her passion of photography and hasn’t looked back since.

Ann-Marie moved into her own studio on Mayberry Square in Sylvania this past February and specializes in taking photos of newborn babies and children as part of her work. She has also relied on social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook, but she noted the best tool has been word of mouth by her clients.

Ann-Marie said that she tries to capture smiles on kids by allowing them to interact with various props she has in her studio. She also travels within a 15- to 20-mile radius for outdoor photography at locations like open fields, but doesn’t do work involving senior pictures or weddings, something she wants to leave to other photographers.

“Those are popular during the summer and fall,” Ann-Marie said. “I really found what I like and what I’m passionate about, so I stick with that.”

Ann-Marie will be offering kids a chance this month to get photos in their Halloween costumes as they are treat-or-treating in Mayberry during a mini-photo sessions she plans to offer. However, she said she is pleased with how her business is doing so far.

“I’m happy to be at Mayberry now. It’s great to have a studio … and Mayberry’s been a great spot and my clients are super happy at where it’s at and where it’s located and I can’t wait for what’s to come,” Ann-Marie said.
