ABOUT ORGANIC MOMENTS
The concept of Organic Moments Photography was conceived by Annie Green as an art form that seeks to capture families in their most natural, serendipitous moments as they live their ordinary story throughout a single unfolding day. A family’s story is grown from the moments of unplanned conversations, fleeting expressions, favorite colors and meals and games, hidden accomplishments, awkward stumbles... the moments of happy dances or pensive solitude, the unscripted stories that are the treasures of the family memory.
These are the moments that Annie strives to capture--- the truest, most candid moments of “us”. Whether focusing the lens on messy, pillow-scrubbed hair to runny noses to the modern art of blankets tangled on unmade beds in the morning light, Annie seeks to capture what it is that makes your family, your traditions, your personal spaces and quirky stories so wonderfully unique. It is rare that our lives are perfectly in place, so why would we stress and strain to archive an uncommon moment, an out-of-character and precariously staged perfection? Rather, Annie has an uncanny knack for spotting those little details that are often overlooked. Allow her lens to capture those special treasures of the day-to-day, ordinary moments of your family story. Those views of un-staged, imperfect, unpredictable family life are the Organic Moments that will become a family’s greatest treasure forever.
I am not sure when photography found a permanent place in my life—whether it happened when I received my first camera in 2009, or maybe with some genetic wiring for how I love the small, almost-missed details around me: light, shadow, the hidden corners of a wide landscape, close-up views of life... There is a deeper love for life through photography that I have felt for as long as I can remember. I love the photo adventures with my students, family and friends that record and keep alive forever the best memories and gifts of life. Photography stops the movement of life, holds still those moments for seeing the gift of small things all around me. Taking thousands of pictures over the past few years brings deeper appreciation for the details-- a child’s little chubby fingers filling the frame of a photo, the wrinkles of tired faces or laughing eyes telling stories of cherished lives, worn and sun-bleached grains of wood, the angles of old fences, the web of winter tree branches, amazing views of mountain ranges in my new home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
