ABOUT

Hi, I’m Anne

When I first started Fairies & Frogs Photography in 1998 I never imagined it would be something so special! My business truly started in a very organic fashion; I wanted pictures of my first baby that were beautiful, timeless and with one click I knew I could capture a moment that would pass so quickly!

Every day my little squish was growing and changing and I knew the only way to revisit that moment is with pictures. I showed the pictures to family and friends and before I knew it, my phone was ringing and Fairies & Frogs began!

So, I always say my business started out like a little acorn and then that acorn grew and grew to a big lovely tree!

I have been honored to have been photographing newborns in the Puget Sound area for 22 years now and I have captured sweet moments for over 3,800 families from all parts of Washington state, Oregon, Montana, California and as far away as Rhode Island, Japan, Italy and England. Each new baby is so precious in their own right and I always feel honored when I am chosen to create memories for families.

Over the years, I have collected many gorgeous props, fabrics and clothing to truly make your baby’s session unique. I carefully select only the best pieces and have great pride in creating beautifully classic portraiture to be cherished by my clients for many generations. Fairies and Frogs Photography is conveniently located in Olympia, Washington. My cozy studio is tucked away in the peaceful countryside among the fir trees and wildflowers.

I started taking photography classes while in high school where I shot film and developed in a dark room. My passion for photography grew while earning my degree from the University of Washington in Seattle. Not only have I been creating heirloom imagery for many years for my wonderful clients, I was also a guest on NBC’s KING 5 Newday Northwest featuring my award winning photography.

My work is also on display at several OB/GYN and Pediatric offices, birthing houses and midwifery offices in the Puget Sound area. Recently an image of mine was also published in a Seahawks game day brochure {a picture of a newborn in a Seahawk’s helmet} which was very exciting!!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boys, my furbabies and large extended family. I also love road trips, going to the movies, and beach combing.
