I have been doodling and designing since I have been a little girl. I would sometimes stay up all night as a teen, just drawing and making card designs and writing poems (or love letters to my then favorite teen bopper star). I grew up in Minnesota where my dad had a photography studio in our home. I set off into the world and got a degree in graphic design. Life took me to Guatemala for 7 years to help my family’s non profit organization, Common Hope. I returned to the states and lived in Miami for several years where I knew I wanted to start my own photography studio. I successfully blended my love of art with my love of photography. I moved back to good ole’ Minnesota in 2001 and started over again. Even though photography is what I enjoy the most, I cannot leave my love of design behind. In 2005 with the introduction of many amazing digital products being offered, I wanted to create designs for other photographers to make their life easier and that began the birth of annie marie designs…the rest is history… or the future!
Due to the fact that I run a very busy photography business, I could not keep up with the demands of the ever changing digital design world. With all of the amazing templates and designs offered all over, I have decided to concentrate my design energy into logos and studio branding. That was my original love. I am like a giddy child when I get to work with someone creating their logo & branding!
