I'M AnneMarie

Besides mothering my own crew, my biggest passion in life is traveling across the Mid-Atlantic to create connected family photographs just for you.  

My passion for motherhood photography is rooted in my admiration for my own super-woman of a mother. You see, I grew up watching her care for my ailing father for 30 years, and since I never really got to know my dad in the way that most children do, my mom was my whole world.  

Maybe I romanticize motherhood with the way I use my camera and light because my mom is literally the picture of a devoted wife, amazing Italian cook, crafter, woman of faith- the kind of mom and grammy everyone needs. Along the way I've witnessed a lot of heartache and loss due to so much disease (thanks, cancer) in our family. And I know how fleeting life truly is. Not a single day here is guaranteed, and I hope for my portraits to help remind you of the intense love between family members, even years after they are gone. I want you to see how blessed your family is to have you. 

Dreamy Light, movement, and human connection define my work.

A little about me for those who like the full story... I married my college love pretty much right out of college 20 years ago, we have three children who are getting way too big (my oldest is in middle school!) and two fluffy mini goldendoodle puppies.

I grew up in a big Italian family in Rochester, NY, but since college I've moved more times than I can count. Chances are I have a story to tell you about somewhere I've lived or travelled, and I guess that's how I can talk to just about anyone.

Before moving to Delaware, we homeschooled and raised our kids in small-town PA that felt like Leave-It-To-Beaver. Alas, apparently, we can't stop moving around the Mid-Atlantic region and here I find myself in living in Newark, DE and traveling for work often. 

Now that my children are emerging out of the magic years of childhood, I just want to capture this season of wonder for all the families that are drawn in by my artistic style. I truly love my work and the families I serve.

A few things I beleive

I am looking for those moments of such transcendent beauty that it makes you want to be exactly where you are. - Yan Palmer

A few things I beleive

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. - Elliot Erwitt
