Hi, I’m Anna, welcome to my blog. Relax a minute, kick your feet up and take a peek at my work. If you look around a bit, you’ll see that I absolutely ADORE people! They’re my favorite subjects. There’s just something about capturing someone’s soul. It’s quite an attractive job to me.

I specialize in natural lighting photography…there’s just a special warmth to it. I love photographing ordinary events in a unique way. Such an adventure!

What do you say? Shall we jazz things up a bit? :)

::Just Beachy - Lindsey and Dave::

Soooooo, back in December, yes December, I had a "photo-shoot give away."
And a few weeks ago I was finally able to meet up with the winners of that Christmas give away!
*wild applause*

Lindsey and Dave are engaged and were amazing fun to work with!  The beachy setting was great!
WOW!  You know, I've never done a shoot that was so relaxing, and yet scary at the same time.  o.O
Relaxing because it was the beach...what's not to like?  :)
Scary mostly when I was in the water with my camera as a wave came crashing in on me, almost to my hips.
Eeeek!!  *gasp*

However, my beloved camera and I lived to shoot another day.
The whole session?  Well worth all the close calls!  :)

I left with the sense that their wedding next year...yeah, it's gonna rock!!  Amazing couple.

After hugs and handshakes, I trudged back to the car...weighing about two pounds more after all that sand was packed into my rolled up jean cuffs...awesome.  :)
Venti Caramel Frappe, anyone?
Yeeeeeeees.  :)

Thanks so much Lindsey and Dave!  I can hardly WAIT to do your beach wedding in March.  Man, it's coming up fast!  *EXCITED*
God bless, more and more,
~Anna Grace
