Pictures of Us

  • A Sedona Anniversary Shoot | By Annamarie Akins

One of my points in my talk was about “showing yourself”. It’s SO good for us to be in front of the camera! I know some of us HATE being on the other side of the lens. It’s hard. We know what looks good and we know what looks bad. So naturally, we constantly worry about our poses, double chins and puffy eyes when we’re in front of the camera. We do this because we’re HUMAN and sometimes our anxiety gets the best of us! Well, you know how you fix this phobia? DOING IT! Have your pictures taken!

The friends we made, the lessons we learned and the experiences we had were what made it the best years of our life!
