Welcome to my blog, the place where you'll see glimpses of the fun I experience each time I have the honor of capturing abundant moments full of life, love and laughter for people just like you! I enjoy sharing tid bits from my sessions, but occasionally you might see a post of some of the dearest people in my own life: my incredible husband Rahul or perhaps one of our four children (yes, 4)... Collin, Griffin, Eden Grace and Matthan. They are my constant inspiration! I look forward to getting to know you, whether we meet over a cup of coffee or just chat via email. Take a look around, leave a comment or two and check back often- you never know what surprises might be waiting!
Blessings Always, Annie

A special thank you to Jonny Diaz for the beautiful song featured in the slideshow. It was the inspiration for shooting each of The Dream Calendar sessions in an open field, as a tribute to Julia, who is now healed and running free.
I just love it when I have the opportunity to shoot families more than once and I especially love it when they become sweet friends. Such it is with the Simpson family! They stole my heart around this time last year and as this session approached, I could barely contain my excitement. They are fabulous in front of the camera, their love for one another is easy to see and fun- man are they fun! Here are a few of my favorite images from our time together!
With shoes this great, how could I resist?
Mr. D brought along his skateboard. He’s got some serious style…and skills!
I had a few minutes with this handsome kid, while the rest of the gang took a breather. This has got to be my hands down favorite image of him! Seriously, he could model right?!
We headed out to find more beautiful grass and a little shade. Isn’t this just adorable, especially the way Miss. J is posing?
Look at those blue eyes. They will make many a heart swoon, but for now, just her Daddy’s!
In case you missed this sneak, it’s worth showing again! A precious moment indeed.
Jen brought along this fabulous blanket and despite the sun blaring down, we were determined to make good use of it. At first we had to resort to tummy time, which was super cute and showed off Miss J’s adorable dress…not to mention the perfect timing of a dragonfly! What are the odds?!
Then we found a great spot for this. LOVE it!
A few minutes with the incredible Mom and Dad, now you know where the kids get their great looks!
My favorite of the Mr. and Mrs. I adore it when couples are still so in love. What a wonderful example for their children!
We had just gotten nestled down in this position when I saw the little ones running from behind towards their mom and dad. I couldn’t resist sharing this image, as it speaks so much about the dynamics of a family.
Jen also brought along her childhood guitar. I can not get over the posing going on here. My goodness these kids are just so darn cute! And this of course was right before we discovered a snake nearby- cute and brave!
Thank you Simpson Family for a wonderful time. It’s always a joy to work with you, to catch up and to capture precious moments in the life of your family. I’m already looking forward to our next “get together!”
Sunday afternoon, we wrapped up our final 3 sessions for The Dream Calendar! It’s awesome news, since that means this week the final project can be sent to press. I am ecstatic to think about the final product being in our hands very soon!
Kelly, was the first model of the day. While our original session had to be canceled due to rainy weather, it was replaced with a cool and sunny day. Perfect for a tea party!
Of course, I couldn’t resist posting this one as well. Kelly looked up at her mom and dad while talking with Mr. Bear and gave them this precious grin. She is simply darling!
Next, I had the opportunity to spend some time with a great little guy. Boy did we have fun…and I got a great workout as well! He highly enjoyed a game of “pushing me down” and watching me get back up (read: sit ups)! It was a blast. Such a joyful and energetic little boy. Meet Nacho:
And this is why I played along with the sit up game, even if it meant shooting while falling down! Can you even resist a child who is that happy?!
I closed out the afternoon with Ryan! Check out his hat. This kid has some serious style and a mighty great personality as well. He seriously had me smiling the whole time!
Thank you to all our Dream Calendar Models and their families, to our sponsors and to all of those who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this a reality! The calendar is scheduled to be sent to press this week. Information on where and how to purchase the final pieces will be available soon.
That’s right #10- we’re almost to the end of our sessions, which should wrap up this weekend. Bright and early this morning I had the honor of hanging out with a super cute kid and his incredible Mommy. We worked hard for a smile, so I’m including a few images…Kathryn, it was worth it!!
Meet handsome little Brady, full of energy and absolutely adorable all at the same time! Be prepared for your heart to melt…
Don’t forget, tonight The Dream Calendar and Clouds of Hope will be on Bay News 9. The segment was preempted by election coverage and breaking news, but should be featured this evening during their 5:00 pm broadcast.
