About

I'm Anna Higgins

and I'm glad you're here.

I started taking photos in 2014, as a freshman in high school. I've had a lot of different ideas for what my life would look like since then, but my favorite reality is always being a photographer.

I majored in architecture for a bit, but eventually got my bachelor's in creative media industries at Texas Tech, so that I could be a photographer (which is what I was doing long before college, lol). I worked in agriculture for a bit, but then quit to be a photographer (which, again, I also was doing before). The reality of being a photographer is time and time again better than the reality of anything else.

I'm 24. I'm a West Texas native. I love to take walks, spend time with my boyfriend and my friends and my family, make tea, watch Tim Burton movies and YouTube, and play the piano (badly).  I graduated from Tech in 2021. Photography has been my main gig since then.

I spend my free time learning Italian on Duolingo, listening to music I liked in 2014, reading books about ballet, watching my boyfriend make us dinner (he is the best cook I know), and writing in my journal.

As you might have read on my home page, my dad's recent death shaped me and altered me in many ways, and I think for the better. Where I used to bring solely enthusiasm to my clients and sessions, I now bring the approach that we don't have much time with the people we love, so we need to make the most of it while we do. Now at weddings I snap a photo of the groom's little sister with their dad, because he may not be around to walk her down the aisle when it's her turn to get married. It's the in-between, usually unnoticed moments that, if photographed, can become someone's most special possession one day.

So while I still bring enthusiasm, I also cry during the father-daughter dances, and I take photos I wouldn't have taken before I knew grief. Know that if you book me, for any session, I'm going to create and document with the purpose of immortalizing what's important, and what will one day be important.
