Just finished a really fun photo session with Monica. She works at an Apple store and when I saw her the first time, she had her hair pulled back and I thought to myself, “she sure would make a great photo subject.” The next time I saw her, she had her hair loose and natural like this and I was compelled to ask her to pose for me. I’m so thankful she did, because we just got some really great shots. She’s never modeled before, but she’s a natural at it. More shots to come! (Thanks for modeling for me, Monica. I’m so pleased with the results!) Nikon D850 and 85mm Nikkor lens

Craft Studio: Boho necklaces

24 02 2019

I created some boho (bohemian, hippie style) layered necklaces yesterday! Here’s the first one I created for my sister, Debbie. We were inspired by some beautiful, but pricey, layered necklaces in a catalog. First, I started with a sketch that utilized the beads I had gathered from my stash (first photo shows project in progress). Components: faux leather top cord, brass chains, painted jasper stones, hematite and glass beads (The colors look more saturated in sunlight!) I’ll be making many more of these to sell in my online store (details to come soon!).

21 02 2019

It’s almost spring and I thought I’d share the spring issue of Celebrate Home Magazine again. Barbara Kelley and I created this magazine in 2012-2013 as a personal project and had so much fun doing it! Click on either of the links below to download your FREE pdf copy of this issue.

This issue is jam-packed (and there’s even a jam-making feature with my friend Sophia Stadnyk!), so download today and get started reading.

Single pages version: Celebrate Home Spring 2013

Reader spreads version (my favorite!): Celebrate Home Spring 2013 Spreads

You can also view it on issuu.com here.

On the cover: What says “spring” more than colorful tulips? I was photographing this bed of flowers and was standing on the edge of the wall when this little girl, clad in a princess skirt with sparkly shoes, came running around the corner. I got this one shot and she was gone. Serendipity!
