Introducing Anne Douglass Photography & Design
Placerville, 916-990-4422, annedouglassphotography.com
Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
My business found me. While still an undergrad, I wrote to a world-renowned photographer on a whim. She serendipitously was looking for interns and invited me to work with her that summer. She taught me that the art of photography is about the people, the emotions, and the overall experience. To that end, I always want my clients to have a great experience and enjoy themselves. Having fun helps them feel comfortable, which is crucial to taking a great portrait.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I lived in Europe for several years and had the opportunity to display my work in galleries in different countries. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment having someone from a different culture appreciate and enjoy something you’ve created.
What’s your biggest job perk?
I get to do what I love, meet amazing people, and share beautiful moments in people’s lives. It’s ridiculous how often I find myself getting teary-eyed at a wedding I’m photographing.
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
I was a profound and curious child. On a camping trip with family when I was about nine, I remember walking through the forest with my dog and wanting to cherish the tranquility and beauty of the scene as the sun beat through the trees. I stopped and tried my hardest to capture and memorize everything. Over the years, the scenery has become fuzzy, but I still recall the event.
If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?
I’m an artist at heart and think in some way or another I would still be connected to something that allowed me to express my creativity.
