I lost myself for awhile. It’s been four years since I last posted. Four years since I felt like myself. But here I am, still standing. Standing stronger and lighter and more filled with love and hope than ever. I didn’t know how much I was in the dark until I climbed back into theContinue reading “Into the Light”

Capturing the Light
A pretty chandelier caught my eye while out shopping with my family. It was perfect for the master bedroom – glittery glass pendants and shiny, embossed brass. The circular patterns caught my eye first; the shadows cast across my ceiling, second. A simple addition (a sale item, too!) quickly became an unexpected inspiration to capture withContinue reading “Capturing the Light”

Playing around with the focus and the aperture settings, I was able to create an abstract composition of a few drops of water. Even the tiniestContinue reading “Water on My Window”
It appears as though the curtains continue down the length of the photo, but it is merely a reflection. Sitting at my kitchen table, I noticed the way these lace panels were mirrored in the wood. A trick of the light, I suppose, but one that deserved to be photographed.
When I was taking down the Christmas lights, I noticed something strange: The plastic coating had peeled off at the bottom of the bulbs. At first, I was alarmed. What if it had caused a fire? But as I took out the bulbs, I quickly realized I had to photograph them. This is truly accidentalContinue reading “Strange Light”
