Quarantined

It is a very strange time as we face a worldwide pandemic—COVID-19—my friends. I am fortunate and thankful to be healthy and have other streams of income during this time. I know there are many who are not able to say the same right now. I am wishing everyone good health and safety during these unusual times. To my fellow photography business owners—stay strong! This will pass eventually. I am going to keep posting during this time for the same reason I always have—to share my passion and love for photography with you. I hope my images will provide some entertainment and relief from the looming anxiety we’re all feeling.

Interview: Here With Us Farm Sanctuary

I’ve had the privilege and absolute joy of visiting Here With Us Farm Sanctuary twice to photograph their beautiful rescued animals. During the time between my shoots, I watched them grow from a small, backyard operation with two goats to a much larger farm with 51 rescues! Here With Us is a very special place with a lot of wonderful stories to tell. That’s why I asked co-founder Amanda for an interview.

How to take the Perfect “Selfie”

What makes the perfect “selfie”? How many times do you snap the same photo until you feel it’s perfect and ready to be posted online?

There are a lot of ingredients needed and a master “selfie” taker knows the perfect recipe to make a stunning portrait. Of those ingredients, the most important by far is the “selfie” taker… the photographer!

Reflections

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
