Mini Beach Photo Session with the talented Anne of STJ Creative Photography.
The 30 minute photography session will take place at one of our stunning St John beaches. A backdrop that can't ever be reproduced. The winner will receive an online gallery, digital download, and 20 edited photos.
A word from Anne, Virgin Islands Photographer & Owner of STJ Creative Photography:
Living on this tourism-sustained island where locals are few and far in between, I often get asked, “How did you end up here?” And the answer is simple really- I followed the advice I've been getting my whole life from my elders, teachers, trusted advisers, and parents: follow your dreams. So I did, all the way to the beautiful island of St. John.
I knew the moment I stepped foot in the warm, white sand and gazed at the landscape around me that could only be described as a dream that I was…home. As the sun beat down on my skin and my ears filled with sounds of reggae and other sounds only found in this magical place, my soul found instant peace. Having lived on St. John once before, and leaving to finish my college education, I knew exactly what I was missing the years I remained in the States pursuing jobs in the field of photography. After finally landing my dream job in Fort Lauderdale in 2011, and after months of learning editing software, piles of camera equipment, business strategies, and more, I dreamt up STJ Creative while I sat at my 9-to-5 desk. I manifested existence out of possibility, and once again chose to turn my dreams into reality.
Within a few months, I moved back to St. John to pursue my two main passions: Island life and creative photography. I’m originally from the Midwest, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and graduated from St. Louis University with a BA in Creative & Professional Writing. To those who have not yet been fortunate enough to know some true Mid-westerners, we are honest, hard-working, and value our families as well as yours. We say hello to everyone we pass on the street or in the sand. We help our neighbors and friends without a second thought. Most importantly, we aim to please those around us. A Midwestern girl to the bone, I want nothing more than to capture the finest moments of people’s everyday lives, including my own.
To my fellow islanders and future visitors, I hope to capture your smiles and experiences on this incredible island through my lens, and look forward to making your memories stand still for a lifetime.
Photo session based on availability. Must be booked in advance.
