Hi, I am 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 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 almost many years and in that time, babies I'd photographed had grown into preteens, family had come and gone, and life was passing me by.
I recently picked up my camera again and never want to put it down again.
