About Me

Get to know me a little better.

As far back as I remember, people in my life would say, “You’re going to grow up to be an artist.” And in a lot of ways, they were right.

I’ve been a photographer since 2004. I started by reading old photography books, using a Nikon film camera. Later I turned to digital, and started right in photographing weddings and families.

Military life led me from Pennsylvania – where I grew up – to California, to Hawaii, and back to the East Coast, this time to Maryland. In 2012 my fiancé and I decided we would move to Oregon, where he was from. No other place I lived – not even Pennsylvania – felt like home to me. But Oregon feels like home. There’s just something about being able to go to the beach or to the desert or the redwoods, all in a day’s drive, that is so eternally alluring.

When we got here, I got straight to adulting. I went to college. I got a full-time job. We bought a house. We had a baby. Two and a half years later, we had another baby.

For the first few years after becoming a mom, I would still photograph on occasion but not as much as I once did. And I REALLY missed it. My soul craved to be doing something creative, and to be connecting with others.

And this is where you find me. I’m on a journey to find myself as a creator, and to meet new people along the way. I’m here to discover your stories, and to hopefully help you re-discover (or discover) something beautiful about yourself. I’m here to make memories, and to document them.

Let’s go discover something together.

Pacific Northwest Photographer

Ann Hughes Photography is based in Eugene, Oregon. She photographs throughout most of Oregon, including Roseburg, Albany and Salem, Bend, Portland, and the Oregon Coast. Most of her sessions are done in an outdoor setting, though newborn sessions and boudoir portraits are often taken in her clients' homes. Ann does travel, particularly for weddings. Her location bucket list includes Canon Beach, the Painted Hills, and the Columbia Gorge.

Portraits and More

Ann's focus is primarily on wedding photography and family portraits. This includes engagement portraits and couples photography, maternity portraits and lifestyle newborn photography. She also photographs graduation portraits and senior portraits, headshots and boudoir photography. Some of her all-time favorite sessions have been outdoor boudoir, intimate weddings, and pregnancy announcement portraits.



“My husband and I felt comfortable around Ann since the first time we met her, like we had been friends for years. She was our wedding photographer. She arrived early and stayed late, and worked hard the entire time. Her work ethic and finished product is unfathomable. She is truly gifted and I can't wait to allocate her services again in the future!”
