let's get to know each other

Hello, I'm Anna Aita

I'm a fine art photographer based in Jacksonville, Florida, specialized in underwater photography, maternity, boudoir, creative portraits, and Pole Dance&Acrobatics photoshoots.

I was born and raised in Milan, Italy and I moved to Florida in 2021, fascinated by the beautiful nature and endless summer.

For as long as I can remember, my dad did photography as a hobby. When I was 13 he showed me how to use Photoshop and be creative with digital softwares. After my degree in Human Sciences for Communication at the University of Milan, I decided to work as a graphic designer. 

In 2011 I started pole dancing and fell in love with it. I felt I was part of a community of strong women that were able to do amazing things. I started training very hard and also started practicing similar disciplines (acrobatics, aerial arts, calisthenics).

I felt strong and capable of doing anything and I thought that every woman should feel the same, so I quit my job (that was mainly behind a desk), I started teaching and in 2013 I opened the biggest Pole Dance and Circus Arts school of the north of Italy.

Seeing every day all the amazing things that my students, the other teachers and I were able to achieve inspired me to learn photography to show people these amazing disciplines and tell the stories of regular women that can transform into superheroes.

When I moved to Florida I found myself mesmerized by the beauty of the nature and I started to do more photoshoots outside the studio. I got my freediving certification and underwater photography became my new addiction.

The best part of my job is being able to highlight the beauty of every woman and see their reaction when they realize how sexy/incredible/rad/powerful/graceful they are.

I like to be their guide throughout the creation of works of art that will remind them forever their uniqueness.
