MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Annmarie the photographer behind the camera at Marie Holmes Photography. A girl who is a homebody, loves a good laugh, authentic italian cuisine and unabashedly watches one too many shows on the Bravo channel.

A few years ago, I was the traditional working mom. Leaving the house at the crack of dawn for work and clocking out at six in the evening five days per week. Rushing after work to pick up my 2 children at the time from aftercare, then racing home to cook dinner, do baths, and tuck my littles into bed before the cycle started again. Sometimes we had weekends to jam some more life stuff in, other times I worked right through them too. We lived life in a bustling city that was alive and fast. So fast I often thought about whether or not my children were getting the time from me that they rightfully deserved. During this time photography found me. Like a missing piece. It slowed down time enough for me to be able to see every detail, every grin, every tear and every gap in between time that I thought I had missed in my rush for living. Photography became my cure for time and after countless sleepless nights and many happy mistakes along the way Marie Holmes Photography came to be in 2009. Today, I am grateful to have captured images that awaken my memories and encourage me to slow down and take it all in. I want to share with you my cure for time….
Having a formal education in the Arts and Interior Design, Annmarie’s aesthetic and vision is driven by her love for combining classic portraiture infused with modern lifestyle photography and translating that into living spaces that truly define each family. Each session is all about the family or individual, so shoots can be anything from simple and clean or as detailed and elaborate as clients wish. Enveloping her clients with the warmth of the sun during sun down and photographing light and airy tones is typically her favorite type of shoot. But when the mood or environment calls for something different and deeper Annmarie plays this to her advantage and creates images that are equally as soul lifting as the ones taken during sunset. All of her sessions incorporate beautiful backdrops and the exclusive use of natural light which makes the perfect recipe for a signature styled shoot with Marie Holmes Photography.
Family is key and a number one priority at Marie Holmes Photography. Because you as the client deserve her full focus and attention Annmarie can only book limited sessions per month within the North Austin Texas area with weekends being booked out first quickly. This ensures her availability to you and any hand holding you may need to make this experience amazing and fun! So please be sure to book at least 3-4 weeks ahead.
