  Anne Berry
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm an award-winning freelance writer and photographer specializing in lifestyle stories and narrative journalism.
Hire me for your project, and I'll deliver compelling, precise prose on target and on time.
Hire me, and I'll write print or online content; create marketing tools; shoot photos and video, or design a website.
I can also be your voice on Twitter and Facebook, and I'll promote our projects through my own social media feeds at no charge.
If you have a need that falls outside my specialties, that's okay. As a newspaper reporter, I've also written about business, immigration, education, the military, farming, and technology.
One of my biggest strengths is a passion for learning.
I'm easy to work with, and while I'm proud of my products, I'm not married to my words. You're the boss.
