Hi, I'm Annie!
The girl behind the lens. My passions include babies, rock climbing, traveling, the starriest of nights, and singing Disney songs with my nieces and nephews. I have been blessed with a wonderful career in Pediatric Cancer Research and wanted to find a way to highlight the beautiful lives of families, outside of the hospital. I started The Darling Lens as a way to channel this love into providing beautiful and timeless photos for all families.
As a young kid, I enjoyed creating "moody" shots of half-buried keys in the sand or carefully placing a bright dandelion on a dilapidated, mossy bench. This grew into more sophisticated photography of gorgeous landscapes, the milky way and hidden gems in and around our national parks.
