Hi, I'm Annie!

The girl behind the lens. My passions include rock climbing, traveling, the starriest of nights, singing Disney songs with my nieces and nephews, and of course BABIES! 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 broken-down bench. This grew into more sophisticated photography of gorgeous landscapes, the milky way and hidden gems in and around our national parks.

Check out my blog for my latest travels and adventures. I am an unashamed dog-mom to Kaisa my German Shepherd dog. 

I am stoked you're here and can't wait to make your visions

and dreams come true!

             xo, Annie
