Buddha Beach, August 2017

Yes…I have already shared a lot of pictures from this day, from this spot on social media, but here are ALL of my favorites.  I love this place, these people, these dogs, and I feel so lucky to get to enjoy it all in the moment and behind my lens.  I used two lenses for this photo series: the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 art lens, and the Lensbaby Twist 60.  I am thrilled to be collaborating with Lensbaby for their “Journey […]

Deep in the woods of the Coconino National Forest, this child revealed to us a character from within that we had not seen before. He can be described as a “Woodland Mogwai.” The forest brings out many things within ourselves if we let it…and I am so glad to have met “Woodland Mogwai,” he is very special and extremely witty. His sense of humor and clever phrases had me laughing harder in a 48 hour period than I can ever […]

Those who love you, will love all of your dimensions…

When I showed my daughter this photograph, I wasn’t sure what her reaction would be. For a child who is almost smiling, singing, laughing to the degree it’s infectious, this moment tells a different side of her. Something deep, fierce, intense and incredibly strong. I was hoping she would share the pride I felt for her in this self-scenario…this portrait. I wondered if she would see her toughness and embrace it along with all of the other wonderful parts of […]

Out of Range

“Out of Range” Sometimes they whisper… sometimes they scream, on the border of my dreams. But I was misunderstood, heart-soft, and obscured by my naive rain. A trade off for pleasure in pain… for what I didn’t see, didn’t know. If I listen will they help me grow… out of this nonsense-sense mind of mine again. To feel alone in time knows no end, So I listen… Listen to them, those are the lines. They bend again… and again. The branches align… […]

She Said

She Said She said she’d stay, and soft and steady she ran. She said she can’t… she said maybe she could again. She said she’d speak, and just listened anyway. She said it’s okay, her words have another gateway. She said it with full bated breath… and fingertips pressing the back of her neck. She said it without turning around to connect. She said it in a silent scream with her face in the floor. She said it in thoughts […]
