My name is Ann Pagel. I live in the Twin Cities with my two kids, Max and Gus.

I have been a photographer since high school, when I first learned to shoot with a Pentax K1000. I shot primarily black and white film until I bought my first DSLR camera, a Canon 40D, in the fall of 2008. I use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Elements to process and edit my photos. I still miss my (stolen) K1000, though. Someday, I hope to buy another one.

In addition to photography, I’ve also been making jewelry and plan to open an Etsy shop someday.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you come back often. And please be sure to leave a comment here and there. Let me know what you like (or don’t like) about a photograph or two. And if you have any advice or ideas about battling cancer, please feel free to share them here. I love to hear about others’ journeys and experiences.

Peace, love, and Bobby Sherman.
