A LITTLE ABOUT ME
The essence of the moments of your life
will be captured forever.
All my life, I've been passionate about art, fashion, beauty and design.
It all began in Estonia, where I was born and raised. My mom taught me how to sew when I was seven, and by the time I was in my teens, I was sewing most of the clothes I wore. After graduating from high school, I applied to fashion design school. Classes were filled up, so I took my mom's advice to study accounting. It wasn't for me, yet it taught me about business and money. During this time I was approached by a modeling agency and started modeling. It was a step closer to my dream ... to step into the fashion industry. Soon opportunities opened up for me to work in other countries - I didn't think twice and moved.
In Miami, Florida, I had the privilege to walk the private runways for Mrs. Blanka A. Rosenstiel’s fashion design collections. I made many new friends in both the fashion and art industry and decided to continue my studies in United States. Then I met my husband, and moved to live in California,
where our beautiful baby boy was born.
A few years later we moved back to Florida, and life took a different turn. I decided to go back to college for a degree in marketing and design. By the time I graduated in 2007, the U.S. was in recession and nobody was hiring. That’s when I combined my passion for fashion, art, beauty,
design and modeling and founded Anné Phillips Photography.
I've traveled the world photographing models and runways, including Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and Caribbean Fashion Week. I've also supported my hometown of Tampa, Florida, by serving ten consecutive years as Fashion Week Tampa Bay’s lead photographer. Tampa Bay Biz Journal
named Anné Phillips Photography one of their favorite photographers. My work has been published in both local and international magazines.
When I work with clients in photo sessions, including weddings, I always envision that these images would appear in a magazine. I never settle, and I’m always up for new challenges, trying out new ways to be current and unique. Those who worked with me say that I'm professional, friendly, an
expert in placement and lighting, and an outside-the-box thinker.
Now that you've read a little about me, I would absolutely love to hear about you as well!
