~MiraBella, Ron, & Jenny
We’ve never had professional pictures taken, not even during our wedding. My husband wasn’t too keen on getting professional pictures. When I called around to photographers I felt overwhelmed. I was also stressing about MiraBella’s age because she was already considered “too old” at 6 weeks for newborn pictures. I decided to call Fairies and Frogs after we’d nearly decided already it wasn’t worth the money or the stress.
When Anne answered the phone she was incredibly friendly. She seemed like such a warm, down to earth- kind person. Right away, she put my anxiety at ease and reassured me that we would have newborn pictures that we would love. Her studio is super cozy. She was so laid back about everything. She’s also like the baby whisperer! She told us that we would get the pictures on MiraBella’s time and not to worry. My husband, Ron even fell asleep! She and I commiserated with stories about the nerves of new motherhood and before the shoot had even begun I felt like I’d known her for years.
Our pictures are phenomenal. I’m completely blown away. I honestly couldn’t have imagined them more perfect than they’ve turned out! Thank you, Anne, for capturing the perfection that we see in our newborn baby with such stunning pictures.
Anne provided my husband and I with such an amazing experience for both our maternity session and our newborn session. She was so great with our son and amazingly was able to work around the fact that he was born a month early and had some health issues. She made us so comfortable for both sessions and was the picture of professionalism. I highly recommend her studio and I will absolutely be going back. The pictures she took for us are absolutely amazing and I am so thankful that we found her!
This review is LONG overdue. Anne was incredible and provided such a low-stress photo session and was able to capture some beautiful moments with our newborn, toddler and big kid. The passion she has for her work shows not only in photos, but also her care and attention to me as a customer. I would highly recommend her to any and all. We look forward to seeing her again soon!
I am so glad we found Anne with Fairies & Frogs!! Our photo session was amazing and our pictures turned out beautifully!! I wish I had known about her when my first two kiddos were born!! I would recommend Anne to anyone looking for a maternity, newborn or any milestones photo shoot, you won’t be disappointed!! We will be seeing her again for our daughters 3, 6, 9 and 12 month photos!!
Miss Anne is truly a blessing. My husband and I went through a really rough delivery of our son and we lost my mom to cancer all in the same week. My girlfriend had purchased an infant photo shoot with another photographer and it was a huge disappointment. I reached out to Miss Anne and we were able to get on her schedule. I have never been so impressed!
As a new mom going anywhere is a bit stressful and we were coming from Mountlake Terrace and my husband thought I was crazy to want to go all the way to Olympia for new born photos.
The scheduling process was very easy, we did it via email which was so perfect for me to not have to be on the phone. The follow up emails of what to bring/expect were so appreciated and took the stress off. In her email she said what to bring or bring nothing because she had everything. We brought nothing really and she sooo had everything you can think of.
When we arrived her studio was so welcoming and comfortable. She had refreshments available, an entire baby changing area with diapers/wipes ect. and put me right to ease by saying to take my time feeding him (I’m breast feeding) that the time will start when he is ready. My husband was so comfortable there he fell asleep on the floor.
The entire shoot Miss Anne took such care and compassion with our son to get the right looks and the pictures we just got back made me cry they are so perfect!
I’m so thankful for this referral because living North of Seattle I would never had thought to look that far away, but I can promise you I will be making that drive again when our little guy turns 1yrs old.
Can’t wait to do the cake smash Miss Anne! See you soon : )
Thank you so much. The photo’s of our little Miss Taly are amazing. I think we watched the slideshow a million times and every single time we had tears in our eyes. Your studio setting is so relaxing, peaceful, and very cute. You have a wonderful gift and are very good at it. You captured a lot of precious moments and the result of your talent left us with happiness, love, tears, and just a great feeling.
I cannot wait to come back with the rest of my family and for you to capture those moments. I am very grateful that my sister referred me to you and I will gladly do the same, refer everyone I know. Again thank you so much!
~ Lisa, Talina and baby Jadon
Anne and Milli, you two make such a great team! You both worked your magic and got the most perfect shots of my grandson. My daughter and I are so happy with your work. Anne is such a great photographer and Milli has such a way with babies! The studio is great, we felt so welcomed and at ease. They really gave a lot of their time to do our photo session. We highly recommend Fairies and Frogs and we will be going back to them again.
Everything went SMOOTH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
~ Christy & Michael
Thank you Anne and Milli for a fantastic newborn session. Anne, the photos turned out beautifully. . . we love them and feel they really captured our baby perfectly. Milli, you did a great job calming our baby and ensuring he was 100% sweet for all of the pictures. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! We look forward to seeing you again in just a few months!
I can’t give enough praise for Fairies and Frogs photography. When I met Anne I had endless questions, and she had the perfect answer for all of them. I’ve met many professional photographers, she’s the first that truly impressed me. Her and Milli’s patience is amazing, dealing with a newborn who was more interested in eating, and a toddler who has autism and is very difficult to photograph. I recommend them to all my friends and family. I’ll always cherish the photos from our session, and plan to have her take more as often as possible!I can’t give enough praise for Fairies and Frogs photography.

Ms. Anne, I have to tell you…
All morning I’ve had my family call me and tell me how your pictures of Gracie and our family pictures moved them to tears! Even though we didn’t capture Gracie smiling a bunch, you captured Gracie’s famous look. . .she’s always been a concerned baby and you were able to capture her well known expressions is such a beautiful way, a way that brings people to tears. Thank you again. Working with you is always a fun, comfortable, and a memorable experience!
Can’t wait to see you again!!
~ Kandra B
We have been going to Fairies and Frogs for 6 years to capture all the important milestones with all three of our children. The team at Fairies and Frogs never have disappointed us and actually have gone above and beyond to make it the best experience possible. They can even get my 6 year old out of her famous bulldog smile and into a genuine one that breaks my heart! We love love love all our pictures that are hanging in our home, thank you!
~ Theresa B
Anne’s photographs, from Fairies and Frogs, are amazing, she manages to capture “that moment”, “that look” and “that smile” several times over in each session. There is truly no one else that I take my daughter to for pictures. Each session we’ve had with Anne has yielded mantel worthy pictures. Her studio is very inviting, she is absolutely wonderful to work with. I actually look forward to photo sessions as does my daughter. She has a fun selection of outfits and props at the studio that make the “what to wear” decisions so much easier.
The photos are incredible and Anne’s touch with special effects produce photos and provide memories that you can’t get anywhere else. Anne isn’t just a photographer, she is a true artist.
~ Ryan & Christina
Wow! What excellent work! Ryan and I were both so excited after having our photos taken and just could not wait for the proofs to be available online. Upon viewing the proofs, we knew instantly that we would have to buy a CD containing all of the images! There was simply no way we were going to be able to choose just a few poses. Your talent is limitless, Anne, and we cannot wait to bring our little guy in for some special newborn photos. I’m so confident that you will be able to work your magic once again! Thank you!
Thanks so much for the fantabulous pics of Sir Elmer Fudd, our Dalmatian!!! I have to say my nephew and his bride surprised me with a photo session for my birthday! Without a doubt, one of the best gifts I have ever received! The colors are so vibrant! The lake setting is spectacular in print! And best of all, we have some beautiful memories to hang on our wall! My husband HAD to pick out his favorite too!
~ Stephanie, Bill & Bailey
Thank you Anne. We love the photos you have taken of our son. Your photos really capture the essence of Bailey and we have yet to be disappointed by the results. Thank you for your patience and talent. We are definitely life time customers! Thank you.
~ Cassie B
Thank you very much for taking such beautiful pictures of our new little family! We had a wonderful experience with you. We couldn’t imagine Tilly’s newborn photos turning out any better. They will be something we cherish forever. We loved every single photo you took. Now its just picking which ones we want to blow up and frame! Thank you again!
~ Noel, Amy, Brayden & Chloe
Brayden and Chloe had a great time getting their photos taken at Fairies and Frogs! When we left Brayden said, “Can I get more pictures taken?”, and Chloe, who previously cried when we went to a studio for photos, had the biggest smile on her face the whole time! I loved the setting and atmosphere of Fairies and Frogs, we will never go to a department store studio for photos again!
Anne and Milli captured Brayden and Chloes’ personalities and spirit. The pictures are beautiful, unique, and look like they were just playing and having fun, not positioned formally like we were used to previously.
I can’t wait for the next set of photos we have done for the kids at Fairies and Frogs!
~ Kristen, Paul & Emma
Anne and Milli – Thank you so much for taking such beautiful pictures of the pregnant belly, the cute toddler, and the handsome husband. Not only did we instantly feel comfortable with both of you and your studio, but the quality of your pictures is amazing! We will definitely be back for more pictures once the baby is born. We have recommended you to friends, family, and even our midwife! See you soon!
We will never go anywhere else! Anne’s creativity combined with an amazing sense of professionalism and commitment to her customer’s 100% satisfaction make Fairies and Frogs one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I couldn’t speak highly enough of Anne. In fact, we live a considerable distance from Fairies and Frogs (over an hour away) and I absolutely do not mind. The experiences beat the heck out of the frenzied chaos and “cattle drive” at dept store “studios”. Anne’s studio is laid back, relaxing and family friendly and makes you feel at ease when some might feel very vulnerable. Anne and Milly also have an amazing talent to work with “what they got”. Our oldest son was quite “camera” shy and yet we have some of the most precious photos I could have ever asked for. Thank you Fairies and Frogs, for giving us priceless treasures.
~ Kari H
I just wanted to thank you again for your amazing talent! It’s no surprise after seeing the newborn shots that you once again caught those sweet expressions in her half year photos! I never want to forget that sparkle in her eyes and her big smiles that only come through with certain expressions. . . yet, somehow you managed to capture it!!!! We will cherish these photos, even Mark commented on the photos, which is a big deal since he is not a “picture” guy! He already picked one out for his office. I only wish I would have known about you for my older children’s first year photos! Thanks again!
~ Tony L
Thank you Anne. I LOVE the pictures, each and every one of them. You are so very talented and I am grateful for you. I just made my order and it was so easy and fun too. I’ll see you in another two years when my children turn ten. Thank you again.
~ Kelsi H
I just viewed Emma’s pictures and I must say . . . they brought tears to my eyes they are so beautiful! Thank you so much! I cannot believe how fast she warmed up to you and your mom, you really did capture the real her! Now for the hard part . . . choosing!!! Thank you so much!
~ The Ward Family
We loved our experience at Fairies & Frogs, it was such an easy going atmosphere, and the kids (all three of them) had fun and we got such great smiles from them!!!!! We even got some great shots with our Great Dane (no small feat for a photographer I would imagine). What we love about Fairies & Frogs is we got such natural poses, for us it’s like getting a chance to freeze a moment in time at this age of our kids’ lives and keep it forever because the pictures show so well who they really are! We absolutely love Fairies & Frogs and would recommend them to anyone, the only hard part is choosing which pictures you want!
Anne did such an amazing job with my daughters photos! I love every single portrait. They are beautiful! These portraits are by far the best we have ever had. I highly recommend Fairies and Frogs.
~ The Jumps
I cannot say enough about Fairies and Frogs photography. Anne welcomes you into her studio with such warmth. From the moment you walk in the door the experience is fantastic. Anne takes the time to explain the best way to start your session and offers great suggestions. She engages with our daughters and makes them feel at home. Both Anne and Millie have very unique qualities in which they are able to make a special connection with our daughters creating a magical experience for everyone.
Our first visit was for our 4 year old’s birthday session. Our daughter was blown away by all the dress up clothes.
Overwhelmed, she was unable to make a decision. Anne stepped in and picked out the perfect tank top and tutu. It was like Anne knew my daughter since birth. Milli topped it off with a big pink flower and our daughter made 2 friends for life! I was able to just stand on the sidelines as Anne and Milli took our daughter into their hearts and created the most dazzling pictures.
Our last visit I was for sure would be a disaster with our 2 year old being afraid of the camera. However, Anne and Milli were able to pull out the big guns and our session turned out amazing. Anne was able to capture our 2 year old’s very unique charm. Even after our scheduled session, our 2 year old found something of great interest in the studio, Anne decided to take additional photos. Those additional photos have given us the most beautiful three photo collage that we will cherish forever.
And finally our family session was great. I liked that Anne focused on the girls rather then getting all our heads tilted just right. My husband was able to relax enough to
smile! These were our first family photos and I cannot see us going anywhere else. The atmosphere, kindness and quality is top of the line!
Wonderful experience for our graduate. Our 18 year old daughter chose Fairies and Frogs after our granddaughter had amazing photos from her Glamour Girl session. The senior photos were fantastic. Creative and sophisticated. Anne made her laugh throughout the session (not an easy thing to do) and as a result her photos show her with a beautiful natural smile. We will definitely recommend Fairies and Frogs to our friends.
We love fairies and frogs! We have been there for family pics indoors and out, engagement pics, baby bump pics, newborn pics and glamour girls pics and have been very happy every time!!
You did it! We were up early that day volunteering at a rest stop coffee stop, then rushed off to sell Cub Scout popcorn at a store. By the end of the day we were tired and had to get ready for our photo shoot. Some how you did your magic, you got us all to smile, and the pictures turned out fantastic! You captured us as a family unit. Thank you very much Anne. We don’t get our pictures taken very often but when we do we come to you ;-)
Amazing! My daughter has such a wonderful time. Getting pictures taken has never been this enjoyable! Anne was so warm and welcoming it really made my shy daughter feel comfortable. She was able to capture those facial expressions that make her so unique. We were so happy with the pictures and will cherish them always! Thank you so much, and we will see you again!!
What a great experience! I have been telling anyone who would listen that both our Glamour Girl session and photographs were wonderful. My 5 year old daughter loved having her hair and ‘makeup’ done and ‘posing’ for Anne, and Anne did an amazing job making her look absolutely beautiful. Anne is pleasant and patient, and has a special gift for capturing something lovely and unique in her photographs that will tug at your heartstrings. Thank you, Anne, my photos are truly a treasure!
Thank you so much for making our 6-month session so perfect. Our little guy was obviously comfortable since he fell asleep and let you pose him for some priceless shots. And I so appreciate your mom being there. The two of you are a great team. Thank you so much!
~ Jamie & Katie
I LOVE these pictures!!! You did such a wonderful job and the color enhancement is beautiful!!! I can’t decide which poses I want to get, because there are so many that I love!! It’s so hard to choose my favorite!!
Thank you so much….I’ve already referred all my friends to you (via your Facebook link – GREAT idea!!)
We were thrilled with your photos of Berkley and Claire. They were absolutely beautiful. Every one of them was unique and wonderful that we just had to buy the whole lot! I will definitely be bringing the baby back for a session again soon. Thank you so much for capturing our girls, both separately and together in all of their individual beauty and charm.
~ Shannon & Sylvia
I just wanted to let you know how wonderful the pictures turned out and how happy Sylvia and I were with the whole experience! Not only was it fun-you had proofs for us in just a couple of days. I tell everyone how great the pictures turned out and how fun it was for a nervous teenager wanting a great senior photo. We are looking forward to seeing you in December for the family photo shoot. Thanks again!
The pictures of the girls are beautiful! They definitely have the WOW factor. Thank you so much for being so flexible and patient with our hoodlums. I really love the pictures and I can’t wait to show it to our families and friends.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures.
~ The Caldwalader Family
We love our photos! Your studio is so cozy, you did an amazing job of making us feel relaxed and comfortable. We will definitely be back! Thank you!!!!
Anyone that can get a great shot with five. . . I repeat five squiggly children has got talent! We had a very good experience and would recommend Fairies and Frogs to anyone!
~ Betsy, Tyler & Owen
We really enjoyed how relaxed and casual our photo shoot felt and we had some great pics to pick from! Thanks so much for capturing the sweetness of our little boy!
Oh my goodness! Our family portraits are BEAUTIFUL! They are the best portraits we have ever taken. Thank you again for the beautiful work you do.
WOW. . . What amazing pictures. You really did capture who they are. I love, love, love the one of Anthony where all you notice are his eyes in the shot!!! Thanks again for your time and hard work. . . very well spent!!!!!
~ Erica F
Thank you so very much!!! We love our photos. I have forwarded the link on to some friends and family and they love them too! My mom said they were wonderful and made her cry, she is very sentimental :-) We look forward to choosing the ones we want this weekend. Thank you again! I will be very happily recommending you to all my friends!
~ Greg & Chrystal
Anne!!!! The pictures turned out wonderful!!!!! There are so many great pictures to choose from :-) I just want to tell you how grateful we are that we came to you for our family pictures, thank you so much!!!!!
~ Jen M
We absolutely loved our experience at your home studio, and it was certainly better than anything else we’ve done in the past. It shows through the images that you captured; you can tell we were really having a good time. Thanks for making Ragen smile so easily. We appreciate it!!
