BESTeam Feature :: Solhful

Anyone that knows me can count on the fact that I will 99% of the time have a camera on me. Much like my love of capturing images of yesteryear, Ana from Solhful {Photography by Ana Cole} finds inspiration by the beauty of the past. Her images have a delicate beauty about them that sent me imagining laying amongst the photographed flowers and breathing in the Midwestern country air.

In upper Minnesota, outside of photography, Ana spends her time as a wife and homeschooling mom. Her love of Classic Literature is where she draws inspiration for her photos and art. Be sure to look closely and you will see some of her favorite quotes on her prints. Aside from the utilization of quotes in Ana's art she also uses Photoshop to incorporate different tones and textures however she strives for a well exposed, high quality photo from the time the shutter closes.

High quality also translates to the materials used in printing. A very heavy cotton paper called Hahneumuhle paper is utilized with a brilliant white backdrop. The attention to quality and detail doesn't stop there. Images come matted and placed in a blue box with chocolate brown ribbon to ensure protection until it is time to frame your new piece of art.

Take a step back in time with some of my favorites:
