To the Sun, to the Sky, to the Moon

This very morning… To the sun I did sing Won’t your please give me a name For I have lost mine along the way And now my smiles have all slipped away Without them nothing feels right Won’t you lend me your light Just enough to curl my lips tonight This very afternoon… To the clouds I did plead Won’t you stay close to me For in here there’s no shade, no tree And I’m burning without cover With fevers […]

shooting through the sick

I will try to make this brief, because it has the potential to be very long… Starting about 6 years ago, I was sick.  This sick lasted for years.  I started getting chronic sinus infections and accompanying intermittent fevers.  These waves of sick were increasingly taking over my life.  I was sick much more often than I was healthy.  I had never had a sinus infection in my life before moving to Arizona- so it took a long time to […]

Standing Strong

Standing strong > standing tall. In this blog, I am going to explain why this portrait was made.  Much of what I say here could be applied to my other self-portraits as well, because many are built from the same place within me.

Buds

This was a spur of the moment photoshoot.  I wanted photograph my son and one of his best friends, who we are lucky enough to have as a neighbor.  They were mostly goofy, but you can see the sweetness too, and how wonderful their bond is.  I am hoping to make this a yearly photoshoot for as long as they will let me 🙂   About the Artist: Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, two children, and two […]
