Ready For The Journey

I like to think of life like a surfing metaphor – there are always waves, some are stronger than others, and some will even carry you along when you didn’t want it to but sometimes you can pick which one to ride. The ride can end in a crash or leave you exhilarated and ready […]

Why Photography?

By
Dec 23, 2013

While sitting at my booth in a Holiday Art And Gift Show, a man asked me the best, most thought-provoking question I’ve ever gotten as a photographer. He looked around at my photographs and made the usual small talk before asking, “So, why photography?” I thought about it for a second, then shared my thoughts… […]

Hello, Fall!

This is my daughter’s favorite season. I love it too, the colors, smell and spices. It’s also the time of year that I get crafty and start gift shopping for Christmas. Living in Seattle, there are literally over a dozen holiday art shows from October-December. I’m getting into the swing of these with two local […]

What a joy it was to photograph this family as they welcomed a fourth sibling, a precious girl. She clearly adored her older siblings. They were a bundle of energy! Their Mother told me the oldest didn’t like to pose for photographs, but you can’t tell by these – she was super helpful with her […]

One of my favorite things to do in the Summer is hiking. I’ve never really hiked anywhere else except in the Pacific Northwest. It never ceases to amaze me at how lovely the forest is, especially the trees! To celebrate our birthdays, which are 360 days apart, last weekend The Man and I spent a […]

Jul 18, 2013

I have so much fun getting ready for an art fair, ordering new prints, and having them arrive from the printer feels like Christmas! This year, I have even more florals, and have added some whimsey to my work – from Gnomes to Robotany (Transformers in the garden). And, I have expanded my love of […]

I’ve been branching out in my photography business to include Beauty Portraits. Last week, I had booked a portfolio building session, and when my friend forgot to come, I decided to step in front of the camera myself… Here is what I look like on a normal morning: Here is what I look like after […]

Vera is a beautiful woman inside and out. She is a mother, business owner and community leader. Her nursery is an amazing space where my kids never want to leave, it’s a wonderland. So, I was looking forward to photographing Vera and her daughter in the nursery surrounded by flora and spring colors. Sadly, being […]

Capturing Beauty in People

By
May 28, 2013

Something funny happens when you point a camera at someone and say, smile! They become self conscious, fiddle with their hair, and worry about how they look. I know, because I’m guilty of this myself. In my photography, I love capturing a person in a photojournalistic style – the natural smile unhindered by thoughts about […]
