This is my very first blog post on a different platform. I thought I’d start by introducing myself. My name is Annelie, I’m 39 years old and I’m a married mum of one. I’m originally from Stockholm, Sweden but I have been living in London for most of my adult life, 16 years to be precise. I used to work in the care of the elderly and retail but I am now a kids photographer. My preferred style of photography is lifestyle, where there is very little posing and the kids are themselves, no weird “cheese” smiles and no posing. That being said I do also do studio photography but even then I try to keep it fun, informal and spontaneous.
My muse is my daughter who is 5 years old and at this moment in life needs to be bribed to agree to have her photographs taken. I also love photographing my husband when is playing with our girl.
I started my photography business almost to the date two years ago and I have been lucky to have built a steady client base and most of my bookings come through word of mouth. My Facebook page is my most used and effective tool, www.facebook.com/anneliepopphotography is the address.
I hope to make this blog a second tool where I get to show my creative side and some of my photos.
