Hi! Nice to meet you! I’m Annie.

Whether you’re in the trenches each day or you’re just starting out, I’ve been there. Having spent the past 10 years behind a camera, and nearly 20 years as a graphic designer and complete Photoshop nerd, I understand the needs of professional and amateur photographers alike.

I’ve been given an incredible opportunity to share what I have learned with countless people around the world and I want to share my years of experience by helping you create more beautiful photographs, and to do so with more efficiency and speed. – I want you to spend more time doing the things you love with the people you love!

Like you, I strive for perfection in my work. That is why every Paint the Moon product is thoroughly tested by a team of pretty awesome professional photographers. They put them to the test in their own editing workflows for an average of six-months before I feel they are perfect enough to release.

I pride myself in creating the best actions available on the market and offering customer service to match. If you have any questions, or if there is ever anything I can do to improve your Paint the Moon experience, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am here to help!
