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 […]

Buddha Beach

Crawdads, tadpoles, rockslides, wonderful friends, hiking, and a red rock energy reset…so very grateful for this getaway to Buddha Beach, Sedona.

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. […]

Hear Me Now

Hear Me Now Hear me now, I’ll not be silent or still… lonely or left alone. Down a long road, so many years ago… fortune threw me a megaphone. Hear me now, your burden is mine… but I’ll not cry for it on my own. Lights turned low, but I’m louder still… darkness won’t shelter my sound. Up the highest peak, feet swept in sand… fingers pulling the clouds. Lights turned low, the curtains are closed… I’ll not scream but […]

Cowgirl in the Sand

Art can be inspired by anything really, and for me it’s often music.  I find a lot of inspiration in songs and as I listen, I have visions of photographs. I recently took my daughter into the desert right by our house to let out her inner cowgirl.  The shoot was inspired by Neil Young’s “Cowgirl in the Sand.” She rocked it! So grateful that she indulges, and even enjoys my little inspired sessions. She makes a great partner in photography! “Hello cowgirl […]

This past weekend we headed north to cooler temperatures and lots of lovely green to go forest camping. We were hoping to camp at a certain site where we had camped before, but when we found it, we discovered that the previous campers at the site had buried all of their trash and it had been uncovered by animals. Propane tanks, dirty diapers, and styrofoam plates (to name a few things) were scattered all over. It was so disheartening to […]
