welcome to my Blog!

I’ve got a thing for styled shoots. Seriously! I just can’t seem to get enough of them. When I was a little girl, one of my favorite activities was rummaging through the old clothes bin and playing dress up with whatever I could lay my hands on! Now that I’m older, I feel as though […]

Quiet

Well folks, this is it. This is my LAST creative blog post of the YEAR!!! 😱 It’s hard to believe that 2017 is drawing to an end. As I was contemplating what my last project should be, I knew that I wanted to go back to the basics. For those of you who have been […]

New Month, New Creation It was February 2017 when I decided to shoot one creative session every month. Since then I have been on a fantastic journey of personal growth! (Note: when art is your job, it can be surprisingly easy to get creatively stuck!) Those of you who follow my work know that my […]

The Veil

August 30, 2017

I have always LOVED oil paintings. The rich colors, the deep shadows, the way the light sparkles and glows in contrast… even to this day you can find me engrossed in a Rembrandt picture book for hours on end! And don’t even ASK me to count the number of books I own on Da Vinci. […]

My Top 50 Portraits

August 9, 2017

I’m a people person. Somewhere down the line I got classified as an ESFJ, which means I’m BIG on people and a MAJOR extrovert! So naturally, it’s hard for me to take a picture if a FACE isn’t involved. My love for photography started with people. Actually, my love for ART started with people! I […]

The Art of Cozy

July 26, 2017

All you need is a book and a window (and maybe some coffee). If you can’t tell, I’m a big fan of reading. One of the things I miss most about my childhood are the summer days filled with heart-racing adventures, soul-crushing tragedy, and barely achieved victories, all safely confined within the pages of a […]
