I feel most alive when capturing the perfect shot for my clients.
As a creative kid, I remember rushing to finish my basic requirements so I could take nothing but art classes. When a commercial photography school spoke to my senior class, I knew I’d found my path and decided to enroll. Upon graduating, I worked for nearly a decade assisting professional photographers across the country, from Arizona to Chicago, before eventually opening my own business in Denver in 1997.
Today, nothing lights me up like getting lost in a project. My mind starts to swirl with ideas for the look and feel of an image; the number of water droplets on the table, the swirl in the yogurt, the crease in the bag lying just right—I’m all about adding that special element that makes an image spark and takes it to the next level for my clients.

In a virtual world, it’s easier than ever to do a photo shoot virtually. We can connect in person or on shoot day over Zoom or text—whatever fits your life the best.
Creative endeavors can feel like…a lot of work. There’s stylists to manage, lighting to figure out, and props galore. Annette will take on the details of managing all those litlte factors, so you can focus on what matters most: dreaming about shoot day and planning how you’re going to use all your new images.
At Slade Photo, you don’t just get pictures. You get a dream that’s been brought to life through the camera. Every brand has a style, a vibe and an approach. Annette absorbs the vision of the brand and makes sure it translates beautifully into every images.
There’s something special about every photo. A story to be told. An extra-special background, or new kind of lighting. A little extra something that makes the image stand out. Annette has a gift for seeing to the heart of the photograph and making those details sing.
