welcome!

I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.

hey there!

I'M ANNIKA.

I'm an energetic, compassionate girl, Christ-follower, nursing student, nanny, and frequent iced coffee drinker.

My favorite days begin with quiet mornings. There is just something about the morning rays streaming through the windows that warms my heart. I find joy in these quiet moments doing the simplest of things, such coffee on the back porch watching the sun rise or time spent in prayer and reflection with God.

Later in the afternoon, you can almost guarantee that I've got my second cup of iced coffee in hand. As the afternoon sun fades into an evening sunset, I lay aside my busy schedule to finish the day completely focused on my family. Some of my strongest and most delightful family memories come during the last few hours in the evening. Laughing and catching up during dinner around the table. A walk around the neighborhood. Or a game night filled with competition.

While these are just simple day-to-day things that bring me joy, I have a heart for adventure. As I've grown older, I've learned that it is so easy to become busy and lose focus of the simple things. And I know I'm not the only one! So now I choose to find the adventure in exploring a new park or cooking that one Pin on Pinterest that has been buried for years.  After all, its the little things that matter at the end of the day.

As you can see, family means everything to me. I've been privileged to call Indianapolis, IN my home for the last 20 years and recently relocated to Greenville, SC. I can remember when I was growing up that once a year we would excitedly get ready for our annual family photos. It was never a question. Our house walls are still to this day covered with many of those annual photos (as well as many embarrassing candids!). But I'm grateful that my own mom taught me to take time to remember. And that is my passion behind serving you.

MY PASSION TO REMEMBER

THE INSPIRATION

Imagine a gallery wall filling your home.  Maybe in your living room, the halls, or your little one's nursery. Each frame and photo album displays a beautiful representation of your family. They are a reminder to you of the beauty of that season of life every time you walk through the halls of your home.

In the thick of the day-to-day tasks, it is so easy to forget how beautiful and fleeting childhood is. But with tangible artwork, you will always have a frozen glimpse into your family's history. And I'm here to document it with you.

Neutral colors, timeless textures, and flowy maxi dresses that highlight the feminity of motherhood. The simplicity of these elements in a photo accentuates emotion.
