My Story

Hello love!  I’m Anne, and I’m so grateful that you’re here to learn more about me and the love I have for photographing little ones.  The big picture is honestly quite easy to paint.  I see splendor in the mundane.  I find contentment in simplicity.  And photography is my heart.

When I look into the eyes of a child, I see perfection peering back at me from beneath sooty lashes.  I hear innocent joy in the tinkling lilt of a giggle.  There are moments when I think that if I reach out just the littlest bit further, I can actually touch the radiating happiness spilling from a young heart, filling up the space around us with bliss.  I see the enormity of the world swirling beneath small feet and watch, humbled, as they try on each new experience with brave souls and open minds.  Children embody the briefest heartbeat of time when nothing is out of reach and possibilities are truly endless.  Emotions jump and play with abandon across their unreserved faces and my gift and greatest pleasure is capturing each one with my camera, saving the memory for all the ever-afters.

I see grace in the tiny pieces that make the whole child before me.  I can watch the dreams bubbling just beneath the surface of an upturned grin and find beauty in the contemplative expression of a child lost in thought.  Capturing the ethereal glow of childhood through my lens and returning the tangible memory to loved ones is more than my passion.  This art is my soul and intrinsic to my very existence.  My natural connection to little ones is everything to me.

I can still vividly remember making endless fairy chains in the backyard while the warm summer sun cast shadows around my daydreams.  I remember the days of tulle skirts tickling my knees and thoughts of glittering fairy dust tripping gleefully through my head.

I can assure you that I don’t take the gifts that God has given me lightly.   It’s in that juxtaposition that you will find the reason to trust me with your portraits.  I’m able to reach little ones in a place where only the young live.  

I would be so honored to have the opportunity to showcase your family and all of the little nuances that make each one of you beautiful.  I’m more than happy to answer any questions you may have and would absolutely love to hear from you!  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for stepping into my world!

With much, much love,

Anne
