I am so thrilled that you have made the choice to come visit my site. I would love for you to get comfortable and stay awhile. Take a peek around and discover the world of annie marie photography!
I have built my world around what I love most. God. My family. My friendships and my photography business. (ok, and maybe some chocolate once in a while). I truly believe my calling was to create lasting memories for people. Whether that be the beautiful relationships I have formed with my clients, or that perfect photograph that has captured a personality or moment you will now treasure forever. You see... I am not in this for me. I am in this for YOU. I want you to have the best experience from your first hello until you are enjoying your photographs with family & friends.
I get how much you don't like to be in front of a camera. I get that you are busy. I get that you are on a budget. But I also get that people regret not capturing special times until it's too late. A single photograph is worth so much more than the paper. It is a memory brought to life at any moment. When your kids grow up. When your parent is gone. When life changes. You don't get a second chance. Photographs are priceless and I feel honored I get to create that for others.
Enjoy peeking around and please feel free to contact me to let me know how you want to be photographed.
One of the most powerful things I ever did for myself was to have my own portrait taken. It is rare that I like a photo of myself so I went into it skeptical. But I trusted the photographer. I was afraid to even look at the photos, but instead was able to see my beauty as he did. I was finally ok with every wrinkle and freckle and mole because it told my story of a woman who has lived many adventures and raised beautiful children. For the first time, I was ok with my flaws because I realized they were not flaws.... they were ME.
Trust that I will see that beauty in you and can connect with your soul. You deserve to have a day for yourself to be re-united with your beauty within.
I WANT TO EMPOWER WOMEN TO SEE THIER BEAUTY. TO EMBRACE THE WOMAN THEY ARE AT EVERY AGE. TO UNDERSTAND THEY ARE DIFFERENT FROM ANYONE ELSE AND BEAUTIFUL THE WAY THEY ARE.
Although my number one priority is taking good care of my clients needs... I could never grow and get better if I didn't challenge myself daily. I often enter image competitions to keep me on my toes both creatively and technically. I love learning and feel that I can better serve my clients if I am serving myself as well. Here are just a few of the fun awards and recognitions I have received.
