Hi! I’m Annette McMillan. 

Just your regular Michigan-born, happily married, outdoor fanatic, free-spirited, dog-mom creative. You’ll most likely find me outside, barefoot, drinking a smoothie. Or on a long run (even if its raining), talking to deer, at a breakfast place with my husband (devouring French Toast), cuddling with my human-like dog on the kitchen floor or spending the day by the beautiful Lake Michigan lake shore. I absolutely love the earth and people all of life’s beautiful quirks.

Obsessions include (but are not limited t0):
Early mornings, minimalism, plants, animals, all things homemade, Chipotle, a good workout, gift-giving, car dancing (it’s a thing), linen sheets, essential oils, traveling + camping, my sweet dog (Sammy) and my handsome, engineer (engin-nerd) husband (Ethan)!

 

Why Photography?

2012 was the year I went full throttle with photography (when I was fifteen) but I have loved this art from the very beginning, taking after my paternal grandfather. My parents say that when I was six years old, I found the “family camera” (a small point and shoot) and just wouldn’t put it down.

It’s my passion to capture life. You won’t find the stiff awkward poses here. I want to show the real, raw, natural moments. The simple gestures of love. The happy tear moments. The laughing your head off moments. Even the moments that don’t go as planned. Moments and details that not only my clients adore, but their families for generations to come.

Lets connect and create.
