Meet Annette

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.

Her passion is for creating unique, emotionally charged images with exceptional detail.


An eager collaborator, Annette prides herself on giving her clients exactly what they need… and at least one dimension more. She now specializes in food and beverage, products and floral.

A Seamless, Creative Experience

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.

Get in Touch

Let’s connect on a complimentary discovery call to discuss your ideas! Once we finalize the direction and agree on a budget, you’ll submit a 50% deposit to book your shoot. From there, I’ll handle all the shoot details and be available to answer any questions or concerns that arise along the way.

Go Time

Shoot day has arrived and I’m ready to roll: I’ve gathered all the necessary products, props, backgrounds, and support staff. You can either be present in my studio or we’ll connect virtually. If virtual, it’s important you stay close by your computer on this day to ensure smooth communication.

Get Excited

I’ll edit and process your final images to your specific requirements. Once they are completed and final payment is received, I’ll send you a link to download your files. All that’s left is to pop some bubbly and celebrate!

A passion for detail and dimension

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.
