Hi, I’m Ann!

Thank you for visiting!  This site is a meeting place for my three great passions - travel, history, and photography. 

In a sense I've travelled all my life, growing up in the military around the US and then, as an adult, through Europe. Now we're living in Okinawa, Japan and exploring southeast Asia. I am the planner, researcher and organizer for all our travels and I hope our itineraries inspire and excite.   

My husband and I have two sweet boy-muses, 7 & 12, who first inspired me to "learn photography" seven years ago and have suffered through my inspirations ever since. My best dog-friend, Jack, was another muse - you'll see him in my personal work. After running my own professional photography business for several years, I'm stepping back to reclaim the joy of image-making and hopefully pursue another passion - teaching manual photography.

My love of history drives my wanderlust and fuels my interest in documentary.  I am acutely aware of the past as a place you can never return to. My absolute favourite images possess movement and light - they’re natural, raw and minimal. 

My purpose is to create an image that evokes emotion. To find transcendence where it's least expected. To create art that lives. 

I hope this blog inspires you to honour the passage of time by fully realizing the present, whether by loving your loved ones or exploring the world. Please comment and follow my journey!
