Hearing Loss Magazine covers…who will grace the next issue?

29 06 2016

It has been an honor to photograph every one of these “cover models” for the Hearing Loss Magazine. Every story is different but they all deal with hearing loss and how these people thrive despite the challenges.

Mark your calendars for Garden Muse 2016 photography exhibit at Green Spring Gardens!

29 06 2016

I’ll be having my second solo photography exhibit at the Green Spring Gardens Horticulture Center in Alexandria, VA from August 30 to October 23, 2016.

The reception is Sunday, October 9, 1-3 p.m. I’ll have some new images as well as old favorites. All images are for sale and a percentage of sales goes to FROGS (Friends of Green Spring Gardens). During the reception I will have a store set up with lots of inventory: matted prints, framed prints, greeting cards, gallery wrap canvases and photo jewelry. And of course, there will be ample food and beverages! The Horticulture Center is open Monday-Saturday, 9-4:30 and Sunday, noon-4:30. Green Spring Gardens is located at 4603 Green Spring Road in Alexandria, just off Little River Turnpike. There is ample free parking and entrance is free as well. The show will be up for two months, so you have plenty of time to see it!

Ann Rancourt is the new National Walk4Hearing coordinator for the Hearing Loss Association of America.

I used my Westcott Eyelighter Reflective Panel to add a little twinkle to her eyes and a glow to her skin (she has gorgeous skin to begin with!). I love the results, so I’ll be incorporating it into future portrait sessions. (I am gadget girl after all—so don’t you judge me!)

Good review of this gadget with sample photos: http://fundydesigner.com/tip-westcott-eyelighter-review-for-headshots/

I got mine on sale online but you can save $$$ and build a similar one using this tutorial I found online: http://www.diyphotography.net/build-diy-eyelighter/

I like the graphic qualities in this composition with the tight cropping and criss-cross leaves in the background, so I thought I’d share.

Is there a more stunning color combination than purple-blue against bright green? I think not.
