I am a photographer of people in places all over the world. A Malawi native (yes you heard me right!), growing up a majority of my life overseas in a small country in Southeast Africa better known as "The Warm Heart of Africa." The experiences I have had overseas have played a HUGE role in shaping my love for different cultures and beautiful people all over the world. New relationships continually challenge me to step out of my comfort zone and capture the beauty within us all in unique ways.
What to except during a photo sesh: "Imago Dei", Reflecting the image we are all made in. The image of God.
You can expect an experience that I hope brings you joy and peace! Joy in getting to know each another which may include dancing to some tunes (I sometimes like to play music during a photo shoot) and non invasive questions (because I want to get to know YOU!). Peace resting in an atmosphere that I do my best at making you feel as comfortable as possible. And by the end of the day I'll probably, most likely want to be your friend! (no joke)!

"ANNABELLE YOU ARE A RAD HUMAN I CANT EVEN HANDLE IT!!! literally jumped up and down when I saw my photos. God blessed you with an incredible talent. it was honestly an honor to work with you. You made me feel confident and beautiful. You are an amazing photographer and I am gushing at how these turned out. You have such a gift with a camera. Thank you. I can never say that enough." - Frankie
"Hi Annabelle, I should tell you...before I left my apartment to take pictures with you it took me a good half hour to find the two outfits, because I felt so inept at finding outfits that were pretty (That didn't include the time I spent on my makeup). Like I said, my mom is color blind, and I didn't have any confidence in my ability to put things together well. That and I don't honestly feel like I measure up to society's standard of beauty. So, I was feeling really insecure and, until I met up with you, I was thinking "Do I really have to do this? I'm not photogenic." And then we drove over to the park and you prayed for us. Prayer was what I needed, and I'm so grateful you did. You didn't know all the insecurities running through my head but God did." - Allison
"As a couple, we both had so much fun during our photo shoot- and have wonderful pictures to prove it! I usually don't enjoy having my picture taken, but Annabelle made me feel completely relaxed the whole time, and was wonderful about explaining the process. It made me actually look forward to documenting future milestones in life with photos!" - Katie S.
"Getting pictures taken of yourself can be very uncomfortable. Getting our pictures taken by Annabelle was not uncomfortable in any way. She is genuinely encouraging throughout the whole shoot, making you feel comfortable and at ease in order to best capture who you are in her photos. I didn't realize how important this was until she shot our photos. She makes you feel beautiful!" - Lauren
