Hi! My name is Annie.
THIS IS THE STORY OF A QUITTER and her comeback.
I love people-watching. I grew up one of five kids, and have twenty-five cousins (and counting!) on my mom's side alone. My family frequently went through boxes of old photos, albums, and video cassettes. I loved the nostalgia that filled the room and the stories that flowed. Naturally, I took to photography very quickly – observing moments, freezing time, and capturing a lifetime of memories. And it all started with capturing my family's big moments.
Somewhere along the way, I gave up on my dream. I lost sight of why I fell in love with photography and started focusing on all the things I couldn't do. I hung up my camera for many years and in that time, babies I'd photographed had grown into teenagers, many family members had come and gone, and life was passing me by.
I recently picked up my camera again, and rekindled that love of capturing life's beautiful moments, and never want to put it down again.
