Hello! I’ve never done this, and a lot of you don’t know me in real life, so I thought I’d introduce myself. This isn’t going to be a generic stuffy introduction though, so even if you do know me, read on - you may well learn something about me!
So... my name is Anna. My middle name is Joy, unlike what random sales call people think, I go by Anna, not Anna Joy!
I’m mostly known for wearing stripes and dressing my kids in stripes... I often go to toddler groups matching my 8 month old son. That said, I went to my parents’ church on Sunday and once people I chatted to realised who I am, the first thing they said is “you’re John and Kathie’s daughter!” which was often followed by “the photographer” - so I guess I’m known for a few things!
I only learned to drive 5 years ago, and my first car was a turquoise Nissan micra. I cried when it got lifted on to the lorry to go and be scraped.
I hate small talk. I love deep conversations. I have an irrational fear of moths. I love food, especially Krispy Kreme Raspberry Glazed donuts and peanut butter flavoured things. I am pleasantly surprised at the number of courgettes and raspberries that have grown in my garden this year. And my favourite thing to photograph are fun couples who are keen to do anything during their couple shoot. This summer, I hiked across boggy fields, climbed over gates to get to hay bales, almost got soaked by incoming waves, dunked my feet in the sea, made friends with a peacock and a horse and came close to being blown off a pier all in the name of getting that shot. .
