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.
I love these captures! The ones where my subject isn't thinking, she's just reacting. And laughter is a lovely melody when genuine.
Seriously. Look at this lovely plant! I saw her while on a bike ride, sans camera so had to return the next day. My heart stopped. In a good way.
I almost passed by this fascinating wild flower. But when I looked closely, I was fascinated. I had to squat and found the angle a bit awkward which made me appreciate my yoga practice!
My husband and I traveled from California to Denver via train in 2018. We had a sleeper car and one of my favorite things to do was see what travelers did before or after boarding, perhaps greeting others.
During portrait sessions, I invite my subjects to bring along an item that has meaning to them. It could be a book they wrote, a scarf, a hat, or like here, a necklace. Sometimes the stories of a human being can be most poignant when we are not head on and...
That beautiful smile! Rebecca was a bright light, full of energy and creativity. The day was hot and the noon hour not the best for a portrait, but Rebecca was all in and laughter filled the air.
I photographed lovely Cindi on a hot day while socially distanced. This image was captured in between poses and I love how her expression is one of seeking and yearning. It makes me wonder, what was she thinking about?
The Pandemic has led me to shooting Porch Portraits, or mini-sessions, portraits from a distance. Jean has a lovely sense of humor, but I love this pensive image of her as she looked out over her lovely back yard.
My spring garden brought me immense joy this year. The purple tulips were vibrant, lush and full of life at a time when human life seemed particularly fragile and our future uncertain.
