Mango Magic

I love mangoes! Especially the Alphonso variety you see photographed here.  The mango photo taking bled into my smoothie making. My morning so far…has been delicious!   Magic powers powders: Spirolina Raw hemp seed Ground flax seed Protein powder Sometimes Chia Always MACA!!! A dash of rainbows…   Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.

Room 17

I have wanted to take self-portraits in an old hotel for such a long time.  It finally happened last weekend and it was such a fun experience! I got to stay one night at the notoriously haunted Hotel Vendome in Prescott, AZ.  I am so grateful to this space for what it showed me.  I can’t wait to go back!

Edge of Thirty-Seven

Upon waking on Tuesday, October 3rd,  I was struck with an intense desire to start writing.  I skipped my daily five mile morning hike and picked up my pen instead.  The day before had been full of heartbreak for many, myself included.  With the horrific mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert and Tom Petty’s passing, I felt uncontrollable sadness.  I  knew I needed to figure out how to channel that sadness into something else that would help me refocus […]

My Journey Story with Lensbaby

I got my first DSLR camera in 2010.  I just wanted a camera that would take better pictures of my children, who were toddlers then.  At the time, I had no idea that photography would become the primary vessel through which I would develop my craft as an artist.  When I step back and look at my whole life picture, however, this all began well before I got that Rebel T2i DSLR in 2010.  My photography is very personal and […]

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 […]

Lensbaby Love: Hiking with the Clouds and Tunes

The desert always feels different after a night of rain.  This morning the sky was covered with big, beautiful clouds.  I hike most days, temperature permitting, and this morning I took my Canon along with me because I knew I’d find abundant inspiration in the rare clouds.  I used only my Lensbaby Edge 80, just to do something different.  My music inspiration was bascially a loop of Brandi Carlile’s “Turpentine” and a cover of her song “Late Morning Lullaby” by Shovels and Rope.
