If you’ve read my About Me, you know that my love of photography did not start with people. It was completely and totally about capturing the world around me. I was amazed and fascinated that I could make the world stand still. The amount of money my parents’ spent developing rolls of film with pictures of my dolls, our toothbrush holders, landscapes (and I was no Ansel Adams)… okay, I had to help pay too, but still.

But what you see here, when I get around to blogging (oops), is mostly people. In fact, it’s mostly babies and toddlers. I love working with people, with families, I love freezing time with a laugh, a scowl, a funny face, or pure wonder (what the heck is that crazy lady holding?!). Only, I never stopped taking pictures of the every day. I never stopped with the dolls, the toothbrush holders, the landscapes (that’s a lie, I haven’t taken a picture of toothbrush holders since those cute bears that hung on the wall in our bathroom in 1994). The point is, I don’t share a lot of what I capture.

And now I’m trying to change that.

I quietly ventured into selling my work years ago when I was fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and just as quietly let it slip away. Recently, I’ve gotten the urge to branch out again, stretch my creative limits, and offer some of my non-people work for sale.

I’m starting with Etsy, but I have some other ideas in mind.

Please have a look around, stay for awhile, share my shop, buy some Christmas cards, and let me know what you are looking for in prints and products. I would love to hear your ideas and how I can add some beauty and perspective to your space and life.

LIFE Week

April 30, 2010

My alma mater hosted LIFE Week 2010 this week. Just like last year, each day of the week focused on a different event. Tonight’s final event featured a number of USD musicians and Princess Pashu of Swaziland. It also included live painting by the talent Scott Erickson. Check out his work, it’s amazing.

Angels on the Beach

I know I said this in the sneak peek, but Laurel Latto, of DonnaBellas Angels is seriously talented. I had to feature a couple of her pieces in the full blog of our La Jolla Shores session because they are just so beautiful… and so is she! It’s fitting they should sparkle together! I definitely recommend that you go to DonnaBellas Angels and have a look around her site. I love that her organization is working to provide beautiful, inspiring, uplifting art for those undergoing treatment for chronic or terminal illness. Even more awesome? Laurel booked the session through the LLS fundraiser (going on until April 1st) and so half of her session fee was donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! Keep up the amazing work you’re doing Laurel! I think you’re fabulous!

The full blog will be up by week’s end, but for now I must sleep. Goodnight!
