Hi! I’m Anne.

I have always seen the world through the lens of a culinary enthusiast, so it makes sense that I fell in love with capturing images of my passion in action from a young age. I am so grateful for the success I have found in the food world as a photographer and I hope you enjoy visiting my site as you spend a little time seeing the world through my eyes.

I am excited to share my perspective with you, not only through my photographs, but also my experience styling food, creating recipes, and ultimately where it all started for me – cooking.

Yesterday I was honored to open my home & my heart to a group of 19 strong, brave & beautiful moms who have previously, or are currently, helping their child through cancer treatment for the first-ever @maxloveproject Mommas’ Day Retreat 💛 It was a healing day full of Reiki, meditation, breathwork, nourishment & community where all emotions were welcomed, no matter how big. And IT. WAS. POWERFUL. ✨🙌 Such an incredible honor to serve these deserving moms, shower them with love and remind them of who they truly are. ✨ I am excited to be delving deeper into this type of healing work and can’t wait to do more of it. I am so grateful to my friend & fellow Reiki Master Practitioner Veronica DeRosa @derosavero for co-creating this event with me and for her wisdom & guidance 🙏 And I also can’t say enough how thankful I am for my friend @chefshachimehra of @adyaoc & @spicegirlsauces - she filled our bellies & our hearts with her food that is so nourishing, comforting, and filled with so much love 💕 What an incredible day. I look forward to many more… I know this is just the beginning of an incredible journey. 🙏

From Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final Christmas sermon, also known as The Christmas Sermon on Peace. “It really boils down to this: That all life is interrelated.” ☮️🙏🕉️❤️

Thank you, Dr. King, for your wisdom, compassion, and profound messages of love, peace and equality. 🙏

If you live locally & are in need of organic, free-range eggs from hens who are raised with love & care, please feel free to DM me 💛 I don’t have an infinite supply, of course, but am glad to sell the ones I have for a very fair & reasonable price to those who need them right now. 💛

Our breath is our life force energy that both energizes and relaxes the body. 🌬✨When you observe your breath, you are observing the flow of your life force. When you control the breath, you control that flow of life force. 🌬✨BREATHE ✨🌬

Full Moon Rituals 🌕 with Russell & me (and our dogs!) here on The Watson Ranch… ✨Lighting a fire with wood from our land, drumming, chanting mantra & making music together, writing down things we wish to release into the fire, and then celebrating with s’mores 🔥🥰 So much to be grateful for, including all that Mother Nature continually teaches us. 🙏

Consider this simple, yet profound mantra as you set your intentions going into this new year ✨🙏… Just imagine if we could all live by this. Living with the goal of raising each moment that passes in front of us - not by controlling things, nor by judging them - but by simply touching each moment with a higher vibration than it had when it first crossed our path. Just imagine… meditate on this… and then live it and watch your life, the lives of others, and the world around you transform 💓

Moving into a New Year often involves looking back at the last one. A gentle reminder to hold your past with love. With gratitude. With compassion. 🤍 Love your past to death.

Long shadows. Cozy blankets. Dormant vines. Winter citrus. Crisp air. A warm fire. ✨ Turning inward today on Winter Solstice and feeling so much gratitude for all that I GET to do here on The Watson Ranch 🙏 I love taking Mother Nature’s cues - listening to the seasons and hearing what they have to tell us. If you listen to Winter, what is she telling you? 🌬❄️✨ 

Today, Winter is reminding me to slow down. During this busy time of year when the world seems to spin faster, she’s whispering to me, “Remember to pause. To breathe. To hibernate. To rest.” 🤍 So I’m heeding her advice & slowing down for a bit… and as I do, my heart is brought to a place of deep gratitude for some of the amazing women in my life - new friends and old - who lift me up with their presence, and connect me to the beautiful feminine energy of supportive sisterhood 🌸 @meg.hemphill @moxxe @momfluencer @ginnyerickson @ericksonsurfaces @hollyclinardxoxo @maxlovemomma @derosavero @my_epicluv @eloia_live @sandybath @acheloawellness @lavanga_latika @sandymillerpopstar @cousens_farm @anaistangie to name a few 🌸 So thankful. 

Wishing you all a beautiful, restful, nourishing Winter. 🌬🤍❄️

✨ Life, as it unfolds, is necessary. Suffering is a choice. ✨ 
Sending you all loving, peaceful energy as you go through the holidays, friends. 🤍
And if you’re suffering, please don’t suffer alone and know that there is hope and healing available to you. If you could use a Reiki session, a one-on-one guided meditation, some calming breathwork… please message me, as I offer all of these and would be honored to serve you with healing energy. 🙏✨

Last Sunday night was a first for Watson Ranch Vineyards! 🎉🍷 And it was a big, fun, so-fantastic-I-can’t-wait-to-do-it-again kinda’ first!! 🍇🥳 I hosted my very first in-person wine tasting table alongside my amazing, one-in-a-million, dearest friend Mona Shah @moxxe at the @ericksonsurfaces Create & Sip Event in Orange, CA, and It. Was. Awesome!!! 🎉🍇🍷❤️ So very honored to be carrying on my husband Tim’s legacy like this. It’s an incredible feeling seeing our dreams come to fruition. 🥰🙏 I’m definitely seeing more of these tasting events in 2023… who’s in!?

(Thank you @ginnyerickson for asking me to be a part of your night and for being such a loyal, thoughtful, talented, all-around kick-a** friend & amazing human. So very grateful to have you in my life ❤️🙏)
