About The Photographer

My name is Ann O’Neill Deal and I am the owner of Candid FX Photography. I am an award-winning Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) working toward my Master Photographer degree. I have a background in animal behavior and a BA and MA in Anthropology with a specialization in Primatology (study of nonhuman primates). My wonderful husband and I share our home with our three dogs and Maine Coon cat. Our lives pretty much revolve around them!


I grew up in Canada, though I was born in the UK and as you can tell from my name, I am of Irish ancestry. After many years working in academia and research, I moved to California in 2009, where I established Candid FX Photography and married my awesome husband. Then in 2015 we moved to Houston, Texas. I am excited to say that as of January 2019 we are relocating to the beautiful city of Austin, Texas!


Upon moving to Austin, I created a new brand of my business in order to create the first Eco-friendly and ethically-minded dog photography business. Candid FX will continue offering professional services, including business headshots, engagement and personal portrait sessions, as well as food and product photography, while dog photography will now have its own exclusive website at Green Paws Photography.
