We’re gearing up for another storm here in New England, 3rd storm in the last couple of weeks. This weekend we salvaged at the Beach and found some great treasures from storms past. So much wood, trees, docks, buoys, rope, all with an unknown story.…

We really enjoyed the opening of a new exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum last month. Play and I have a great relationship in life and work and seeing the PLAY TIME exhibit was like visiting an old friend. P.S. The pink balloon room provided me…

Power of Play

A couple weeks ago I found some pretty impressive art made by mother nature. Andy Goldsworthy would be proud. Are you into this kind of thing? Come check out my Nature’s Art album under Photo Series. Then a couple weeks later I found this beauty.

Watching kids do their thing in the world continues to be one of my favorite ways to be present and observe beauty. They’re amazing in so many ways and if you really watch, they have a lot to teach us. One of my favorite series…

A new album for VT was added to Places. While in Burlington, VT we watched people enjoy a very frozen Lake Champlain (frozen to the breakers). It was a beautiful and eerie sight. Two days later of rain and warm temps the lake was back to…

Nature’s Reminders

I’m pretty sure if I could design a dragonfly it would look like this- Look at those colors and that gold tipped wing! I cant stop staring at our new friend. This guy’s flight was cut short but we continue to honor his beauty and…

His heart and head can’t understand yet. His heart doesn’t know cruelty, greed, power, ignorance or injustice. All he sees and feels is love, joy, friendship, wonder and connection. His interest (obsession) with Juno started months ago and “meeting him” deepened something greater than him.…

Nature reminds us to trust the process. Being still can be as important as flying. Dreams sometimes have to wait, but once the conditions are right, it will be time to soar.

Trust the process

The dew drops in my garden have been amazing for the last 24 hrs. Last night I took some cool shots and this AM the drops were even more glorious with the AM light.    What are you open to receive? Plants are pros at…

It’s how we started in photography and it will continue to be relevant because it is timeless, romantic and helps the viewer see light, darkness, emotion and composition better. I only shot in black and white for a very long time so my site wouldn’t…

Black and White

I added some new photo series to the website. Light, shadow and reflection have been some of my favorite subjects since the beginning. It only seemed fitting to have a growing series where I could honor them as they are captured. See page links below.…

Portrait Photo Featured

As an  “empath” I have always been drawn to people’s experiences, but this is also the reason why shooting people, I do not know, is complicated. I’ve done it and made stuff I love, but spontaneous portraits and street photography has never really been within…

Portrait: Leaning into my discomfort

My favorite photo from this last summer was taken when my son and I were out exploring our yard in the early morning dew. Our property seems to be a safe haven for dragonflies, so much so that we are often in awe of their…

I loved the energy, opportunity and spontaneity of living in the city, but I am really the most centered among the trees, not buildings. The seasonal beauty around our new home on the North Shore of MA provides nostalgia, entertainment, wonder and inspiration on a daily…

It all started with my love for analog photography and it continues still because of my love for analog photography. Technology has provided many advances that I find satisfying, but nothing can compare to the process of loading film, the feel of the camera clicking,…
