Finding Strength

We are all strong in our own ways. There are plenty of ways that I am sure I come off as weak. For one, I’m scared of the dark. Yesterday I cried while reading a greeting card in the market, and then again when I passed the dead fish. So, perhaps, in some areas, I’m […]

Floating on Clouds

These pictures have multiple motivations behind them. The first is to continue my series titled “Pictures from the Sewer” in which I take photos in a place that most people would find disgusting and dark, and try to turn them into something beautiful and whimsical. The series is shown in its entirety below. My other […]

Capture Inspiration Photo Retreat Contest

Ever since having some really intimate and amazing experiences this year with other creatives where we could truly bond over a period of time and learn from each other, I wanted to replicate that situation in workshop form. I decided to start teaching photo retreats, where roughly 10 individuals could spend 2 1/2 days living […]

My New Home, Part One

I don’t like to over-share when it comes to my personal life…my relationship, my home…these things help my heart beat. I am a homebody through and though. I love being with my husband above all else, he is my best friend. I love being home more than I enjoy the thrill of an airplane ride […]

The Almost Circus and Invisible Audience

Sometimes, we just have to push ourselves. One day I was looking through my portfolio and feeling like I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. I started thinking about things I had never done before: techniques, colors, anything that would present a challenge that I could run with and have fun. About 2 […]

Creating Black Smoke

After posting my last photo called “Wild Birds Burning” I got a few questions about how I put it together, so I wanted to address some of those questions and see if it can help anyone. First, if you haven’t seen it, this is the behind the scenes video showing a lot of my shooting […]

Wild Birds Burning

If there is one thing that I know for sure, it is that I am very much enjoying taking my time with my new pictures and making sure I can go to bed at night knowing I did my best in trying to create them. I went into this new year with a new perspective […]

The Tide that Takes Us

The most beautiful thing has happened in my image-making life, and it has nothing to do with business opportunities, awards, exhibitions or success. It has to do with something entirely more important: creating. At the core of what every artist does is to create from the raw and unprocessed material that our imagination conjures up. […]

Creating “Wind Rider”

This image is the perfect example of why so many artists prefer seeing their work large and in print. I am most often happy to share pictures online in their tiny, 700 pixel, unprintable form. But with this image, I can’t help but feel that little sting of disappointment when I share it so tiny […]

Shooting “Waiting to Fly”

  I was waiting and waiting for an overcast day because I’ve had the shooting bug lately and I sometimes get impatient waiting until dusk to shoot. Alternately, I get tired waking up at 5am to shoot in the morning too, so an overcast day was just what I needed! I had some work to […]
