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.

Ask any farmer & you’ll hear unanimously: No one teaches you surrender & how to roll with the flow of life better than Mother Nature 💚🌎✨ It’s looking like harvest is going to be at least 2-3 weeks earlier this year than usual - so I’m shifting my mind & body into high-gear as we begin testing the brix (sugar levels) & pH, tasting the juice, and monitoring the grapes for signs of mildew or rot as we let them hang as long as possible before picking at the perfect moment 🍇✨ Harvest 2022, here we come! Such an exciting time & I’m so grateful to have this annual experience, and to get to raise my son with this deep understanding & connection to nature. 🙏🥰

When is the last time you truly LISTENED to another? ✨Not just hearing the other person speak while already thinking about what your reply will be or what clever thing you’re going to say next, but REALLY listening with an open heart? ❤️
✨True listening is a rare gift in the world these days that is so easy to give - and it’s a gift not only to those who are speaking to you, but also to yourself as it’s an amazing tool towards inner growth. ❤️🙏
✨Try it for even just a few hours & see how it shifts things for you and those around you. Conscious, present, active listening. 🙌

With 2022 🍇 harvest RIGHT around the corner, I’ve been enjoying spending as much spare time as I can out in the vineyard lately tending to the vines, repairing irrigation and watching with delight as the grapes ripen & their flavors develop. Being a winegrower for a family vineyard is SO much work, but it’s a true labor of love and I adore every muddy, sweaty, grape-juice-sticky minute of it. 💜🍇🍷

Just sent this amazing munchkin off on the bus to his first overnight summer camp experience this weekend - he was so excited, I love seeing his independent personality shine in moments like these! ✨ Is it a coincidence that this beautiful summer camp, coordinated by the hospice Tim went through that’s designed especially for kiddos who have lost a significant person in their life, is called “Camp Spero?” 🙏❤️ Tim’s favorite word in Italian was spero… it means hope. So no, it’s not a coincidence. @spero56 I know you’re watching over our kiddo this weekend, thank you 🥰

I had an absolute blast getting to open my home & all-new kitchen to my friends from @pirch and talented photographer/videographer @hugo.landa.garcia today 🙌✨ Such a fun collaboration! Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at some of what we did together, including a beautiful morning in the vineyard, hanging out with all of my animals, and of course lots of time shooting & spending time in the new kitchen space! So excited & grateful to get to share my new kitchen with all of you - more coming soon! ❤️

It’s been an exciting day here at The Watson Ranch wrapping-up the FINAL details on my all-new home studio kitchen space just in time for my friends from @pirch to visit for a day of inspiration & collaboration tomorrow! 🙌❤️🙏 I’m standing here in my new kitchen tonight in a joyful daze… just, WOW. So incredibly grateful, it’s hard to express. And it just keeps getting better & better - this @pirch collaboration is going to be so much fun! Stay tuned, my friends!!

My advice? Next time you find yourself wanting to change others in order to make yourself feel happy, take a pause… then turn the lens inward and ask yourself, “what is being triggered in me right now that I can work on here?” The best way to make a change in the world or see a shift in others is to humbly look at yourself and do the work there first. ❤️

Just a moment of deep gratitude 🙏 Sitting outside tonight watching the wonder & joy on my son’s face as the hummingbirds came & went, buzzing at the feeder right above him. The “simple” - the “plain” - the “ordinary” life we all GET to live here on Earth is nothing short of the greatest gift that should never be taken for granted. ❤️

Posted this on my stories yesterday, and just loved this moment so much thought I’d share it here. Love you, Russell. You’re the coolest 8-year-old ever & I’m the luckiest mom on the planet, I swear.
