  1. Annie’s photos are gorgeous! I spied several that I would love to have displayed in my home. As for the just for fun question, as a kid my whole family would travel to the White Mountains of New Hampshire for some camping and hiking. In an odd twist, I now live just minutes from the White Mountains (from NJ) and get to soak up all that beauty more often.

  2. Some of those photos in her etsy shop really pull at my heartstrings. I love them. They’re beautiful. We like to take our kids to the cabin in Canada. It’s relaxing and it’s guaranteed family time with no interruptions.

    I already like OHA on Facebook too. Thanks!

  3. Favorite family vacation: Triangle X Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. One week spent riding twice a day through some of the most beautiful landscape on earth!

  4. I still love vacationing at the coast — we went every year as a family when I was a child and I’m happy I get to share that with my son. 🙂

  5. Hey Amanda! So we’ve never actually been on an official “family vacation” but, we so go on a big camping trip every summer and the kids look forward to it all year long. We just love it. We usually invite some of our friends and their families too. It’s a great time. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  6. Those are GORGEOUS!

    We weren’t really big on family vacations growing up, but I love Disney World now (even though I don’t have kids yet).

  7. Love these photos! My favorite vacations are always to the national parks… arches, yellowstone, tetons, … I could go on and on!

  8. Wow! I love her pics.
    Our favorite place to goon vacation is to the beach or hiking. We don’t particularly like very crowded places and my kids love o explore.

  9. I LOVE Here Today and Subtle changes. But really they are all beautiful. ‘Liked’ both of you on facebook.

  10. We spent a lot of time camping in Yosemite when I was growing up. I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to go!

  11. These are gorgeous! We are going on our first family vacation with our two boys- Myrtle beach, should be a lot of fun with a 5 and 9 year old!

  12. I just love the pictures!

    There is no place like Paris for vacation and inspiration. Aaah I need to go back.

  13. So beautiful.

    Fave vaca spot so far…Boston. My husband and I went there for a wedding last summer and had a complete blast!

  14. Would LOVE to have one of these gorgeous prints in my home-thanks for the amazing give-away!

    Our Favorite Family Vacation destination is Disney World or a Disney Cruise (even though our children are 18 and 20-they still ask to go there!) We love that the magic never ends no matter how old they get 🙂

  15. I think my favorite one is the one with the whispy milkweed stuff (looks like that to me) on it. Our family never took a vacation in my entire life, but at the end of our small town’s school year, the moms and kids in various classes all got to go on a picnic to “Kent Falls State Park”, in Kent, CT, and I love my memories of those trips. We ‘hiked’ the falls, which seemed so hard then. I often wonder if it would still be? I just loved seeing my mom, sitting on the blanket with iced tea in a cooler for us, with sandwiches and the other kids’ moms.

  16. Love these!! My favorite vacation destination has to be Maui, where I spent a week with my mom and 2 sisters!!

  17. Love the prints. Absolutely beautiful.

    For me & my girls, it’s the beach. There’s just something so peacful & relaxing. It can’t be beat. 🙂

  18. These are beautiful!

    My husband and I vacationed to California when we first found out we were expecting. I would love to go back with our son one day. 🙂

  19. Lovely art – I’d love to win!
    My favorite vacation spot is the Outer Banks of North Carolina – it’s not a faraway, tropical destination for those of us in Virginia, but it’s beautiful and oh so relaxing.

  20. Those are fabulous!! We go somewhere different every year for vacation. My boys love baseball so each vacation we take involves a MLB game, we are hoping to get to all the stadiums eventually.

  21. I used to travel to Maine a lot with my parents when I was younger. They always wanted to move there. I really love the East coast. The smell of the ocean and the smell of fish. I want to go back there again soon.

  22. My favorite childhood destination was my cabin at Swan Lake, Montana. I LOVE Annie’s work. Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  23. My favorite vacation spot would be anywhere near a lake. Living in Minnesota there are a lot of them. Nothing like laying on a floaty in the lake basking in the summer sun. Oh, and I would so love one of these prints. It would be just what my windowless office needs!

  24. What gorgeous shots – I’d LOVE one for my house… it would be hard to choose just one!

    Our favorite place to visit is Wilmington, NC and Ft. Fisher Beach, NC — we live about 2.5 hours away, and it is such a fun and unique place!

  25. Those prints are gorgeous, hard to decide which one I would pick if I won. Our favourite vacation place is back home in Ontario, Canada, we go every summer for several weeks.

  26. Love these! My favorite vacations were camping with my grandparents, aunt/uncles/cousins and my immediate family every summer

  27. I am in love with these photos! My family always enjoyed visiting Colorado in the summer for some hiking. I also liked both pages on Facebook.

  28. Love those landscapes. My husband and I went to Colorado on vacation last year—another place with beautiful landscapes!

  29. I loved the one you picked out and am thrilled to see more of her work. Holy cats, she is amazing.

    We love driving up the coast of California and Oregon. We never tire of that trip no matter how far we make it.

  30. One of these would look amazing in my kitchen. My favorite vacation spot is The Outer Banks or pretty much anywhere along the Maine Coast.

  31. Love her vision through an artist’s eye. Just for fun answer is trips back to Big Sky Country. We left over 30 years ago, but It’s still home.

  32. I loved when we went ‘out west’ as a family. It happened once & involved 5 of us in a van for close to a week (stopping at night to sleep of course) but it was a blast!

  33. I always loved Disney as a child, we will be taking our kids there for the first time next year and I am so excited.

  34. Fantastic prints! Our favorite summer destination is Glen Arbor, MI. My husband’s family has a house there and it is just pure heaven.

  35. No favorite family place yet, but we will be attempting a road trip to South Dakota this summer with the kiddos!

  36. Her photos are so gorgeous!

    I am partial to the Florida Gulf Coast (especially the off-the-beaten-path locations in the Panhandle), where we went when I was a kid and I later lived for a while.

  37. My favorite family vacation spot is this cottage that my in laws rent each year. We love being out on the lake! 😀

  38. wow. that “bashful pink” is great!! not really so bashful.

    our favorite vacation spot is Belize. warm water, white sand. ahhhhh

  39. Such amazing photos! Even though I’m not much of a beach person, my favorite memory is a trip to the coast with my parents. Now, my family loves the beach and Disney – we usually try to do both in one trip. Perfect!

  40. Beautiful prints! We always went to the Outer Banks, NC when I was a kid. Every summer makes me want to go back!

  41. Beautiful! My favorite vacation destination is (without a doubt) Paris. The city is perfect!

  42. We love going to Florida for Spring Break. Once our kids get older I’m sure we’ll be a bit more adventurous…but for now the beach is it!

  43. Beautiful work! My favorite family vacations were to Ocean City, NJ every year when I was younger. So much fun!

  44. We travel to Texas and Utah with many states driving in between every summer. I love the fun places we discover along the way.

  45. We took the kids on an Alaskan cruise in 2008. It is still one of our most memorable vacations ever. They were 9 and 11 at the time. We also go to Englewood FL every few years to visit my dad. We always have a great time even though we usually end up sunburnt. Lol

  46. What a sweet giveaway! Those first photographs have me missing the big Texas skies of my childhood. I would love to visit Badlands National Park and Yellowstone National Park, but currently my favorite vacation spot is Lititz, Pennsylvania. It is an adorable little town with never ending charm at Christmas time!

  47. Liked!
    My favorite family vacation was when we hiked the Grand Canyon. Such a beautiful and lasting memory with my parents!

  48. These prints are amazing and look great in your space. I love taking my boys to Shelter Island, NY where I grew up.

  49. Love her photos! Favorite family vacation – the Outer Banks, N.C. – one year we got stuck on the road in a hurricane, talk about memories!
