Why do I love photography?
I've always been a big dreamer. A girl who thinks anything is possible, if only you set your mind to it. It started with my passion for surfing and love for travelling. I used to travel the world with a surfboard under my arm and a camera around my neck, in search for that perfect wave. But after years of vagabonding, I wanted to feel that what I did 'mattered'. To have a sense of fulfilment.
I found that in photography. When I hold that camera in my hand, the world changes into something beautiful. My senses are in full working mode and I can clearly see the little and big things that life is all about. Relationships, connection, emotion, beauty. It's all right there, in front of us. Sometimes we just need a little help seeing it. And that's what I am here for, to show you through my lens, the beauty of this world we live in.
It was clear how passionate she was about photography and capturing the special moments that present on the day, to look back on. We really liked how Anne focussed on capturing “who we are”. Nothing felt staged, and she made us feel at ease."
