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.
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.
They open each morning in such innocence and with hope. My tulips feel like a smile, a soft, loving glance, and I imagine I hear them say, "It will be all right. Everything will be all right."
