Bottle Rocket Photography is me, Annie Lawrence.  A 30 something year old  photographer + wife + mother to two daughters, two dogs, two cats, & two ducks.  I've been into photography as long as I can remember.  When I was 8 years old my father gave me his old Nikon 35mm camera and it was love.  I still shoot with a Nikon 20+ years later.  I spent my time in high school making up reasons to go to the local newspaper to use their dark room.  I took every photography class that Colorado Mountain College offered, but decided to follow my passion for welding a step further and got a job as a underwater welder in the Gulf of Mexico.  I worked in the Gulf for 5 years until I met my husband, we then decided to move to Colorado to start a family.  Bottle Rocket Photography was born in 2013, just months after my youngest daughter was born.  

let's get to the good stuff...

I am really into jellyfish.  They are probably my favorite animal.  Not quite an obsession but you have to agree, they are a pretty amazing creature.  Heck, I’ve even eaten one…not too bad either.  Both visually stunning, and pretty tasty.  Ahh, the wonderful jellyfish!

I consider marrying Jared the #1 best decision of my whole life.  I pooped my pants in a volcano on our honeymoon and it really didn’t even phase him.  He also is an excellent father to our two daughters!

I will get dirty for a great shot.  I have been attacked by red ants, mosquitoes, and pretty much every other kind of insect, fell in a river in the middle of winter, fell on a cactus, and have tripped and fallen on my face.

My greatest fears are bears, spiders, monkeys, and outliving my children.

I have spent the last 17 years living all over the country, and recently moved back to northern Wisconsin and couldn’t be happier.  Gotta love the midwest!

I consider mascara the greatest gift to womankind.  Ever.

I am addicted to travel, but my addiction has been put on hold for the time being unless someone wants to babysit my two little girls for a month while I head to India.

Still not enough information?  Feel up for babysitting the girls for a month while Jared and I go on vacation? Or maybe you just want to book a session.  Click on the Contact button above & let's get to know each other!
