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.

I was honored to share my childbirth trauma & postpartum story with @yescollectiveco last week. This is a story I’ve never told publicly before, and it humbles me to do so. The reason I felt called to share it now is because the more mothers I’ve spoken with, the more I’ve realized how common it is - particularly in America - for new mothers to have had similar mentally, physically & emotionally traumatic experiences around childbirth and early motherhood. So I hope my words can bring them comfort in the knowledge that they are not alone ❤️ https://www.yescollective.co/connect or click on @yescollectiveco to visit the link in bio ❤️

Repost @yescollectiveco: “We're so proud to launch a new series of pieces in Yes Collective called "Your Stories." It's all about sharing your stories of challenges, growth, setbacks, new beginnings, and the messy beauty of finding our way as working parents. ⁠
⁠
Today, we're sharing @theannewatson's beautiful, harrowing story of becoming a mother: "No One Told Me Early Motherhood Would Be This Hard."⁠
⁠
An excerpt: ⁠
⁠
"That’s exactly what it felt like. Dark. Another friend of mine left me a voicemail that same week – a friend who had had a baby earlier that same year – and she said, 'I know these first few weeks can be completely insane and bewildering.' She was so right. I felt lost, and confused as to WHY this misery and depression is so common. I remember thinking, 'If this is the case, why didn’t anyone warn me?!'"⁠

Compassion, for others and yourself, starts with letting go of the things that make us suffer. 💛 So, pick it up and put it down.

“Mushrooms have taught me the interconnectedness of all life-forms and the molecular matrix that we share… I feel that I am part of this continuum of stardust into which I am born and to which I will return at the end of this life.” - @paulstamets 

✨🍄 Have you seen the documentary @fantasticfungi yet? 🍄✨ I think it is simply incredible how much we have yet to learn from the Fungi kingdom. And isn’t it funny how when we turn to nature, we almost always find that the answers were already there just waiting for us to rediscover them? 🙏✨🌏🌱

Even if you’re not usually an early-morning person, I highly encourage you to try & wake up before dawn this week if you can!… The Cosmos is putting on a spectacular, once-in-a-hundred-years planetary parade in the early morning sky this week. About one hour before sunrise you can see Jupiter, Venus, Mars & Saturn lined-up in a perfect diagonal across the sky, bright enough to spot with the naked eye. ✨ This morning they were joined by a beautiful crescent moon. 🌙 There’s no better way to put things into perspective before you start the day than a little planetary stargazing, if you ask me 💫💛 Have any of you seen this show yourself yet? So cool!

You are so resilient.
You are so loved.
