I am terrible at writing about myself. I have a BA in Studio Arts and currently work as an Office Assistant in a photography studio. I still have tons of undeveloped film and more film cameras than I possibly need. I am mom to the world's most adorable toddler and wife to the world's most supportive husband. I love photography because I can do it anywhere. I can create a photograph anytime, anywhere as long as I have my camera. It allows me to capture moments in my own life that I might otherwise have forgotten. Also, I am a terrible painter.
I love working with natural light for portraits. I love photographing nature, as evidenced by this collection. I like showing others my perspective of the world through my lens.
I like going for walks in botanical gardens and arboretums for inspiration. I work best outside, usually unaccompanied, but a lot of times I’m with my husband while shooting. I find working at home to be limiting.
This was a personal goal which a lot of the time my photography is. I usually miss the short window when magnolia trees are blooming but this year I got it. I don't necessarily shoot things for others when I'm photographing nature. I do it because it's something I can do with others or by myself.
I used to work in a flower shop, so flowers are a favorite subject of mine. For me, images of flowers can lift my spirits and I love that no two flowers are alike. When shooting, I like to isolate individual blossoms with a very shallow depth of field. That's what I did here for the Flower Cluster Card.
