Welcome!

Create My Story Photography studio is a portrait studio specializing in breastfeeding and glamour portraits for women. The studio was founded in Ocala, Florida in 2014, by Lisa Anderson.

Lisa began her professional photography pursuit in 2011. She took several private photography lessons and furthered her education through Professional Photographers of America (PPA), while simultaneously obtaining her bachelor's degree in graphic design.

Lisa has always focused her portraits on women, from fashion to burlesque to boudoir, but has fallen in love with the connection between a mother and her child. Her strengths as a photographer is capturing that connection, as well as capturing the connection a woman has to her own body (no matter how hidden the connection may seem).

My Life. My Story.

my words. My View.

Born and raised on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin, I have had a deep seeded love for the beauty that surrounds me since I was a child. I am a firm believer that life should be a balance of both joyous and difficult moments. We learn and grow from both of them and neither can be nurtured without the other.

I have two large fur babies, Cody and Harvest, and a weakness for good coffee sipped in comfy pajamas with scented candles burning or while enjoying the company of good friends.

I have a love of layout and print design, but a passion for capturing portraits. The story of my life is cataloged by countless journals and bins of photographs. Long before I knew anything about photography you could find a camera in my hand.

I believe that you should never stop learning. At the age of 30 years, I went back to school while working full time for my father's online hobby shop. I would go to work 8-5, Monday-Friday and every other Saturday, and then head home to work on homework. I attended Full Sail University's accelerated online program and obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in just 2 1/2 years. (I graduated valedictorian.)

Passion, community, and education brought me to two amazing organizations — PPA and The Rising Tide Society. Through these organizations I am able to continue to grow as both a photographer and business owner. I am also able to make connections that allow me to offer the best services and experience for my clients.
