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.

Recently I heard @russellbrand say in one of his podcasts that, "anxiety is just a multiple-syllable word for fear," and I couldn't agree more.

For me, it's a fear of letting go of what I can't control. And I've really found myself wrestling with fear lately - it creeps up when I least expect it and almost always has to do with my feelings around a lack of control of the future. It can be about anything from finances (which I know is a big one for lots of us these days), to my role as a newly-single mother, to the changes I'm making with my business at the moment, and even to things like a fear of "too many ground squirrels burrowing in our vineyard!" (Ahh, the plights of being a farmer! ha ha).🐿️

We all have our 'things' that make us fearful. And for me, I've found many healthy tools for easing my anxiety - meditation being my number one, along with daily yoga practice, breathwork, tapping, Reiki, journaling, and even a good bit of dancing-it-out with Russell!  The thing that all of these tools have in common is the importance of RELEASE... not bottling things up, and not putting a bandaid on a deep wound, but acknowledging them, observing them, breathing through them, and then letting them go. 🧘‍♀️

As we find ourselves in the midst of Autumn, I find Mother Nature is a good reminder of how important it is to release too... as the temperatures drop, the trees release their leaves - they LET GO. And so can we. ❤️

Wishing you all a peaceful, fear-releasing week my friends 🙏

I have a saying: "Life is my guru." Our experiences are our teachers & I believe we must allow them to help us grow. 🌱❤️

That which we push away gets stronger. ✨

Have you ever noticed that when you have a strong, painful or difficult emotion show up, most of us instinctively want to avoid them at all costs? We bob-and-weave, trying to escape facing them head-on. And when these difficult emotions try to enter our awareness, we resist them & push them away. I call it, "closing the door to our heart" in an effort to protect ourselves. But, by doing this, we actually are making those feelings STRONGER. Like feeding a monster, we are giving them more power & "owning them" by pushing so hard against them -- it takes a lot of energy to resist, and all of that pushing can start to feel exhausting. 🥴

Instead, next time a powerful emotion shows up for you that you feel the need to resist, I invite you to try a little experiment: Relax. Open the door to your heart and invite it in. Observe what it makes you feel - explore it, investigate it, get acquainted with it, and just allow it to be there for a little while like an old familiar friend. And then, with the door to your heart still open, allow it to pass through. ❤️

Because all things - including emotions - are temporary. We can learn from ALL of our emotions & become stronger, calmer, more centered beings by approaching life with curiosity instead of fear. 🧘‍♀️
