Hi There!

I'm Anita Barcsa |'BarCHa| headshot, lifestyle family and Branding photographer based in the San Jose, California.

First and foremost, I love people! - and I love to see them succeed. Whether it is success in their business, building a loving family, landing a new job, losing weight, or reaching goals that they set, - I'm profoundly and genuinely happy to see people crushing it. This is the fuel to my passion when it comes to photography. You see, over the years I became so much more than just another professional photographer, I became a specialist to take your success to the next level through valuable imagery. When I started, I didn't realize how incredibly fulfilling and purposeful photography is. Not only do I get to meet people at their happiest, but I get to give them something they value and make them feel incredibly good about themselves.

I was born and raised in Hungary; I'm a middle child, dreamer, and doer. I'm a people pleaser with an independent spirit. I have always loved arts, science, and am grateful for my career nature and my passion for learning.

In my former career, I was a personal chef, and I still get super excited about food and the people who love food.

"People who love to eat are always the best people" ~ Julia Child - I second that!

Headshots and Branding

What is the image you want your brand to convey? I love helping people succeed in their business.

The greatest way to capture authentic portraits - even in the corporate setting, is to create a fun photoshoot experience. Your photo session is going to be fun, and no, it's not going to be stiff or boring. I think that this is one of the most overlooked things about hiring a professional photographer. People believe that this is going to be a tedious process, and they won't exactly know what to do. I'm going to guide you through your entire session, and you are going to have fun. Even in a short period of time, I'm able to connect with people and bring their personality to life in the photographs. I'm here to help you every step of the way to elevate your success through professional photography.

Family Photography

I cherish my family and the reason for that is because we share wonderful memories together. This is why I love family photography: Memories. You know, the ones you hold so close to your heart from your childhood. We all want to share these wonderful feelings with the ones we love the most, our significant other, your children.

I love free-spirited, unposed family photography with rich contrast, colors and light.

This is Family


I feel lucky to be able to say this. 

When I moved across the continents, it wasn't a given that I'd have my family with me in the US. And look at them now. All of those beautiful, shiny people. The greatest gift my parents ever gave to me are my siblings.

I always say my family is like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts in it... and we all take turns! 😁
