About the Founders

Ana M. Lyon
Ana M. LyonOwner / Graphic Designer Specialist
My love for design started as a child. I’ve always been drawn to coloring and painting since I was a little girl. Technology has taken me to a new dimension of creativity and that in itself inspired me to obtain my degree in Communication Design. I keep myself up to date by taking training classes and learn more about what technology has to offer.

Technology’s new tools have helped me to continue to be creative and to be a part of something new, different, and very special. Blesseddreams is a reminder that dreams can come true. My determination and perseverance are my best assets. Dreams of a Peruvian girl who used to colored, draw, paint, and sell handmade art to her neighbors, family and friends. I warmly embrace those times. I remember how much I enjoyed creating designs to celebrate holidays or any other occasion for me to create and play with colors. But most of all I enjoyed looking at their faces loving and celebrating my Designs.

Blesseddreams is an extension of who I am. Blesseddreams is a blessing from above!

My passion is photography! Allow my passion to deliver a unique, fun, unforced display of your family’s genuine character. I believe your expectations come first. Talk to me! Before an appointment is put on my schedule I personally take the time to speak to every potential client about the details of the portrait session.

You want to know what to expect, how to prepare, how you will see the results, how the portraits are priced and how they are delivered. If you’ve seen something in a magazine or other family’s portrait you would like to duplicate – let’s try it! Let us show you how fun and enjoyable a portrait session can be!

The idea of “photography as art” is never far from my mind. I have a key understanding of location photography in combination with traditional studio lighting techniques that allow me to be just as comfortable shooting on location as in a studio. My style draws from a love of landscapes and impressionist art. I am heavily influenced by the old-school master photographers. It is that knowledge of old-fashioned film photography and attributes of light that have allowed me to stand out in this digital age where everyone with a digital camera claims to be a professional photographer.

Although I offer structured pricing, I am willing to create customized pricing packages to suit your needs for every situation. Please see our website for more information.

Allow my passion to capture your family’s memories!
