BEC Leader & Mentor

Hi ya’ll! I am Anna Kruse. I am a photographer from the PNW who focuses on emotive, bold, storytelling images, My journey began after having my children. Time is so fleeting that I wanted to be able to capture them and hold on to those dear memories After that, my passion for photography developed in wanting to give others those exact memories and the rest is history.

Magic of Color

The Goal

Our goal is for our clients to have images that can speak a thousand words. Photos are a way of being able freeze time just a minute longer. Let’s preserve these fleeting moments in life. Let's capture the emotion of big days and small days. From the warm embrace of love to the joyous moments of laughter. Let’s preserve them for lifetimes to come.

Do you like to bake?

If you do you would know that there are so many instructions on how to make a delicious dessert but at the same time you are in control of how creative you want to be, do you want to follow the box instructions or would you like to put your own taste? Editing is just like that, there is no one way to art. Art is subjective and that's the fun part of it. You can use as many programs you'd like, there is no one trick to all.

Invest in yourself, your work and your business.

Mentorship Cost $350

Oh my word. Annie was AMAZING! I went into this mentorship hoping to gain a bit more insight into editing and session flow but had no idea I was going to walk away with as much new knowledge as I was given. Thank you SO so much!

I was so excited to see my girl Annie teaching with BEC. I did an editing mentorship with Annie a year ago in 2021 and she has grown so much in her craft- that now I wanted to learn from her! I believe in education and that we all have something so magical to offer. Annie is the queen at in home newborn sessions. Although I feel pretty comfortable in my in home newborns-I wanted to soak in a little of her brain because every post I am ooooing and awing at her photos. My goal was to see how she processes her session workflow. I LOVED her mention of outdoor shots of the home. I think it's easy to get hung up on not moving around a space and she really shows how much variety a gallery can have with the amount of space and environment is available! Highly recommend this course for anyone who needs a little inspiration to get out and shoot a lifestyle newborn session!
