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.

Turns out my go-to fix for everything  technological 🔌 also applies to mindset ✨ When my system starts to feel overloaded, I turn straight to breathwork, meditation, self-Reiki, yoga, and/or good ol’ working-with-my-hands-in-the-vineyard to reset. What’s your go-to way to unplug & recharge? Let’s all make sure we are doing plenty to care for ourselves right now… 🙏💛

My big sweet boy Henry (aka “Coney Derp” as Russell has nicknamed him this week!)❤️… last Thursday a mysterious giant hematoma appeared in his left ear (not pictured, as it’s not an image for the squeamish!). So a 2-hour surgery, 30 stitches, and one giant dog-collar-cone later and all this loyal gentle giant wants to do now is sit next to me & hold my hand. I tell ya, the unconditional pure love of animals is something I cherish so deeply - truly not sure who is taking care of whom in this relationship, but I’m sure grateful for my adorable pal. 🙏❤️ (and yes, he’s healing fast & you bet he’s receiving regular Reiki from me! 🥰🙌✨)

As a meditation teacher, I’m often asked, “What is mindfulness?” I find that this answer from James Baraz sums it up beautifully. It is about non-attachment and non-resistance — simply being, observing and experiencing each moment exactly as it is. Something magical truly does happen when you release your grip and start to flow with life and not fight it — there is a profound peace in that quiet, joyful, love-filled space. 🙏✨

Just stumbled across this photo of Russell, age 3, running through our practically-brand-new 1 1/2-year-old vineyard in 2017… ❤️ I love that our son is getting to grow up running amongst the vines that his dad planted. What a beautiful legacy Tim left for us to cherish! ❤️🙏🍇 I think I might need to recreate this photo every year or so, just to measure the vines’ growth AND Russell’s growth - what do you think? Hmmm! 🤔🥰

Still a few weeks left of Asparagus Season! I love mine roasted with sea salt, or blended into soups, or sautéed & added to buttery scrambled eggs with chives… What’s your favorite way to eat this magical springtime vegetable? 💚🌱💜 #asparagus #eatyourveggies
