Such an amazing photographer, such a great experience! I recently had a session with Annie, and cannot get over how beautifully the photos came out! Annie is so sweet and talented and really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She pays attention to everything, the lighting, your pose, your expression, everything to make sure that you look your best, and the end result is stunning. The photos came out better than I could have ever wished for and I had so much fun with her. Annie is a joy to work with and really knows what she's doing. I can't recommend her enough, whether it be for head shots, senior photos, family portraits or weddings she will do a fantastic job!
