Where I’ve been
Whether I’ve been traveling, wandering my neighborhood or working on portraits, I’m jazzed by the visual stories I have the opportunity to encounter and love sharing what I’ve noticed with you.
Some images become favorites. Maybe it’s the color, the emotional response, the memory of the day I captured the photo. Sometimes I know what makes the image special, other times it doesn’t matter. This is a space for me to get personal and provide a glimpse into my creative mind and how I see.
New mom's get a lot of attention, and for good reason! They should be celebrated. But new Dad's deserve some love too. How fun to be the one who gets to do these portraits.
We have spent so much of 2020 in limbo or waiting. Waiting for a vaccine, for the election to be over, to see our families and travel freely again. I began a project to capture what waiting looks like and this picture awaits coffee!
Working with Mary Ellen was one of my favorite sessions of 2020! We met at Mary Ellen's home which had a lovely backyard setting and included hives. The joy on her face when she tended to her bees was contagious.
I love this picture of Esther who revels in the spirituality of the natural world. We met at Chautauqua which allowed for a variety of settings and outfit changes. Ninety minutes of joy!
Fall is my favorite time of year; the smell of leaves on the ground, crisp air, bright colors. We recently spent some time in Aspen country, and these aspen leaves are my favorite image. All alone, but so strong.
When I took this picture, I had my light settings wrong. The white balance was still set to sunlight but I did not delete the image because I found the 'mistake' more interesting than what might have been considered a perfect image.
This image is one of my favorites from my daughter's early days as new mom. The smile on her face, the tiny body curled up, bum in the air, in comfort. The awe in watching a new life grow. All of those things are here. Some images are perfect in spite of themselves.
Sunflowers, and the color yellow cannot help but make you smile. Joy and the art I've created from my garden has been vast this year. I am grateful for nature's continuous bounty.
My garden looks disorganized and chaotic as a whole, but when I explore it in the early morning, I am enchanted. If my mood is dark, it doesn't remain that way. How could it when I see something like this?
