Hi, I'm Anita!

I'm Anita Barcsa |'BarCHa|
headshot, lifestyle family, and Branding photographer based in SF Bay Area, 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 captivating 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 have always loved arts, and science, and I am grateful for my passion for learning–I'm a forever student.

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 Brand Photography

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

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. I promise you'll have fun. Even in a short period of time, I'm able to connect with people and bring their personalities to life in the photographs. I'm here to help you every step of the way to elevate your success through captivating imagery.

Family Photography

What is Family Photography? It's simple: 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 and our children.

I cherish my family, and the reason for that is that we create wonderful memories together.

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 is my siblings.

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