This month we had the pleasure of Anna Aromin take over our Instagram account for a week featuring images tagged with #lightinspired. We loved all the images Anna featured and thought we’d share some of her inspiring images and a little about her.
Hello! My name is Anna and I’m from the PNW (WA) with my husband and two children. Before I started photography, I had a passion for drawing and painting at the age of nine and throughout my early twenties. I enjoyed drawing people, nature, and still life, and I would sometimes take quick snapshots of things I’d want to draw and use as a reference. I got into photography in 2007 when I started to take more photos using a point-and-shoot camera. I’ve been self-taught ever since. With a strong desire to advance and hone my photography skills, I decided to upgrade to a full-frame camera and bought my first DSLR — the Canon 5D Mark II which has been attached to me for five years now. Before I had my first child, I enjoyed doing a lot of macro and experimental photography. Now, I am passionate about documenting my children’s everyday lives as I know these stages of childhood are precious fleeting moments. I love documenting their outdoor explorations and adventures through photos expressing artistic imagery, mystery, and childhood wonder. The images I create reflects the love I have for my children and their connection with each other, their joy, curiosity, and wonderment in the world around them as well as my passion for art. In addition to photography, I also love iced coffee, scary movies, beautiful light, and exploring the outdoors.
