Macro Black Rose Series

Fun fact about me: I was born on All Hallow's Eve, October 30th, also known to teenagers everywhere as "wreck night." Growing up my friends opted for traditional birthday parties, but not me, I always chose to celebrate with Halloween parties instead. (Which has definitely carried over into my adulthood as well!) By combining the... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

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...

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...

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 →

Water Lilies

  I am obsessed with the the shades of purple that I captured in this image, as well as the reflection of the water at the base of the lilies. Believe it or not it was a perfectly sunny day when I shot this, and a huge cloud came over at just the right moment to... Continue Reading →

Purple Water Lily

I captured this image on a bright summer day in July of 2018. The afternoon light cast the most amazing reflection in the water resulting in this beautiful golden bokeh. (If you don't know about bokeh, it is the background behind the subject of the photo being perfectly blurred in such a way as to... Continue Reading →

Fuchsia Water Lily

There is something about this color fuchsia that I just love. I honestly believe God is the Master Artist. This was shot using my Canon 80D, 1/3200, F6.3, 200mm, ISO 800.

Liriodendron Mansion, Bel Air MD

The Liriodendron Mansion was the historic home and estate of Dr. Howard Kelly, his wife and nine children built in the 1890's. Currently it is used for weddings, conferences, events and as an arts facility. Liriodendron (leer-ee-o-dendron) is the botanical name for the tulip poplar, many of which can be found around the grounds of... Continue Reading →
