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? :)

::Helllllllllllp::

I need some accountability.

In exactly 24 hours from now, my sister Emily and I will be headed to the airport.
"Where are they going?" you may ask.
Hold your horses.  I'm about to tell ya.  ;)

COLORADO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so maybe the announcement wasn't worth all the hype...but I'M certainly excited.  ;)
We are going to visit some very dear friends from our childhood.
We've known Katie and Ellie since we were little tykes...and I mean little.  I think we've been friends upwards of 14 years now.  That's more than half our lives!
They're awesome.  Plain and simple.

Brace yourselves for some low-quality photos.  ;)

The accountability I spoke of earlier is this.
While I'm in CO, I'm hoping to learn to take time to find the beauty in my surroundings, i.e., take a bunch of artsy-type shots to stretch my creative eye.
When I return, I hope to do a blog post of at least my 10 favorite creative shots from the trip.  If there are more, I'm sure I'll post them as well.  ;)

I need your help in the comment section.  Remind me.  Keep me accountable.
I value your encouragement!  :)

This is Katie and I last April-time, out on the town, photo-documenting our daring exploits in the wondrous land of pottery barn.  Oh, the sights we beheld.
Outside of my family, she's one of the greatest friends I've got on the planet!  And I praise God for her.

Please keep us in your prayers and...
Don't forget to remember to remind me not to forget this new photographic mission.  ;)
Hope that made sense.

A super DUPER excited,
Anna Grace  8D

I will hold you accountable THE WHOLE TIME YOU'RE HERE! I'll be yelling, TAKE A PIC OF THAT, or SHOOT THAT! haha oops that sort of came out wrong :) All in all, I'm so excited I don't know if I'll even sleep tonight!!!! To quote you: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

On a more serious note, I too am so blessed by your friendship. You have been a true dear, and I am so glad God saw fit to strengthen our friendship over the years. I love you.

I'm sure you will find many things to take pictures of. As I am not a photographer I don't have much to say besides good luck! And I look forward to seeing the 10 best pictures, have fun!
