Rehoboth Beach Photographer

Playfully (un)posed and stress-free lifestyle family photography to remember those long, sandy days in Rehoboth Beach. 

Rehoboth Beach Photography

Frame-worthy candids for easy-going families.

With over 16 years of experience as a Rehoboth Beach family photographer, I've crafted a playful approach to guide your family into natural connections that photograph effortlessly, putting children (and parents!) at ease.

From assistance with outfit styling to finding the perfect beach location, I make this a simple, stress-free, and authentically enjoyable experience for families who want to spend more time relaxing on the beach than worrying about family photos..

I'm AnneMarie

I create honest photographs to help us remember. 

I blinked and my first baby boy is now taller than me. As a mother to three swiftly growing children, and a Rehoboth family photographer for over 16 years, I'm a witness to the truth that childhood passes far too quickly. I know how busy life is, and how much effort goes into preparing for family portraits. This is why I've created a relaxed and refined approach to capturing the beauty amidst the chaos of family life.

MY why

Motherhood deserves more than a selfie. 

We moms are so busy doing all the things for our family, and yet we're often left out of the photographic memories.

My hope is for you to feel seen and adored through my work, because you were there too. My images have the power to transport you back to this season of life years from now.  I take the pictures you don't yet know you need, but you will treasure in just a short time. A visual love-letter to you that grows in value as the years pass. My goal during your Rehoboth Beach photo session is to bottle up lots of love to get you through those hard days of motherhood.

“Her chill demeanor was contagious!"

So glad we found Anne Marie to capture our family on our vacation to the Delaware beaches!! She was super responsive and communicative throughout the whole process - from initial outreach to day-of. She also provided a ton of guidance and resources on what to wear, how to prep our kids, which I found really helpful. When we met her to shoot on the beach, she was so kind and patient. Her chill demeanor was contagious….her calm kept us calm while shooting with two wild toddlers who just wanted to do their own thing sometimes. She clearly has a lot of experience with little kids because she moved us through settings and family combinations so efficiently, and she guided us on what to do throughout and kept the kids engaged. No crying or tantrums - a true miracle! It was a great experience! Her work is stunning, and we can’t recommend her enough!

“I cannot rave enough about AnneMarie's work!”

She is incredible at what she does and the results are amazing. She was able to capture the perfect balance of energy, fun, and sweetness of my boys. The session itself was casual, fun, and stress free. She made us all feel at ease and never felt like we were "messing up" the shots with their crazy, loud personalities. The photos are more than I could have asked for and I am so thrilled we did this on our Delaware beach vacation!

“AnneMarie is incredibly talented and has a gift for capturing authentic connection among families"

I can't say enough how much the images captured by AnneMarie mean to me, they truly are priceless! She was wonderful to work with during the entire process - from scheduling the session to helping me pick out clothes for my 3 kids to being so patient with my children and letting them just have fun with the experience. My oldest son even said afterwards that he had a lot of fun and he got to hug mommy a lot! I can't wait to schedule another session soon! You won't regret choosing AnneMarie to capture your family's precious moments!
