Evolution

Evolution. A popular definition of evolution is "the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form." When I think about how photographers and artists evolve, this definition fits perfectly. The process is slow, sometimes painstakingly so, and to say it is complex, is an understatement. In her best selling book... Continue Reading →

Macro Tulip Series

A few weeks ago I was spending a lovely afternoon at Target, as one does when they have had enough of everyone in their house. (In case you don't know, Target's book section never disappoints. Unlike traditional book stores that carry an overwhelming selection of books, Target whittles their collection down to an amount that... Continue Reading →

Rediscovering My Love of Art

Pursuing photography as an adult has allowed me to rediscover my first true love, art. Once upon a time, like many creatives, I was encouraged by my high school art teacher to attend an art focused college. However, I was convinced that art was no way to make a living, so my path took a... Continue Reading →

Cherry Blossoms in Bloom

Last Spring I photographed the Cherry Blossoms in DC for the very first time, and to be honest, I really didn't like most of my shots. It was so crowded on the day that we visited, which made it really difficult to properly compose an image, much less take one without a ton of people... Continue Reading →

Christmas Card Portrait Photo Shoot

I recently had the pleasure of shooting Christmas card photos for my daughter and her husband at the location where they got married, Swan Harbor Farm in Harford County! I loved photographing at this location because you have so many backgrounds to choose from! The Farm House itself is breathtakingly beautiful, but so are the... Continue Reading →

Sunflower Portrait Session

I live near a beautiful Sunflower field that blooms annually late September through early October in Harford County, MD. People come from all over the state to take photographs here, so this year I was determined get out there! About 2 hours before sunset I loaded up my models, (I mean family,) equipment and I...

Concord Point Lighthouse in May

I grew up right down the street from this Lighthouse and used to walk to it all the time as a kid. The surrounding landscape and huge promenade that sits adjacent to it today had not even been thought of back then, but still to me, it was just as beautiful. There are a thousand...

William Paca House and Garden

If you ever venture to downtown Annapolis, you must visit this breathtaking two acre estate and garden. The garden is divided into a formal section closer to the residence, and the "wilderness" is near the back of the property, which is where I captured this image of the summer house. William Paca was a signer of...

Sunrise at Haleakala

In order to capture this photograph my husband and I had to travel up 10,023 feet to the tallest peak of Haleakalā, which means "House of the Sun." This inactive volcano forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui, and watching the sunrise from Haleakala National Park is considered a once in a lifetime... Continue Reading →

Stone Stacking in Maui

  I took this photograph lying on my stomach, on a beautiful summer night from a beach in Waliea, Maui. My husband and I happened to catch a breathtaking pink sky sunset while sitting on the lawn, when I quickly took off barefoot to capture as many images as I could! (After all, photographers live...

Seeking Shade

Do you ever just want to hide away from the world, I know I do. I found this frog lounging within a tangle of Lily Pads, half in sun and half in shade, she was taking a break from the paparazzi of photographers trying to catch a great shot of her. (And from the children... Continue Reading →

Waterfall in Maui

This long exposure image of a waterfall in Maui is probably one of my favorite images that I have taken to date. I had to hike up a mountainside in July to get it, and I did not have a tripod so I had to use a railing as a make-shift one. It took a... Continue Reading →

Yellow Hibiscus- Maui

Did you know that the yellow Hibiscus is the State flower of Hawaii? I was fortunate enough to photograph this beauty in Maui while visiting for my 20 year wedding anniversary in July of 2018. I found it near a road side stand where we had lunch on the road to Hana. I used my... Continue Reading →
