Fall Fun

I just completed my Sandwich photo shoot and I am in love with this family! The girls were so cute and cooperative as we moved to new settings - they had some ideas of their own which I added to the mix.  Their energy and enthusiasm made for such a fun session. At the end they brought their dog, Maggie, out of the car for the last shot.  Such a happy day!

Marsh View

In anticipation for an upcoming photo shoot in Sandwich I decided to check out my landscape options at the town beach.  I brought my tripod and planned to walk the boardwalk to the ocean.  But as soon as I arrived in the parking lot I knew I wouldn't be going any further.  There is something magical about the marsh in late afternoon, the way the colors evolve and intensify, totally enveloping you in a blanket of golden light.  As the sun faded and walkers made their way back across the gray planks, the water deepened to indigo.  I waited for the first lights to be seen in the distance before I turned to go home.

Black and White Photo Challenge

I love a good challenge.  And thinking about a black and white image for such an event always brings me back to texture.  I was intrigued by the contrasts of the tree bark, grass, leaves and dandelion seeds which threatened to blow away at any moment. Timing is everything!

Wedding Bliss

We attended a wedding in Baltimore this weekend for a close family friend.  While I wasn't the official photographer I had fun capturing a few moments of my own.  A beautiful ceremony on a beautiful day!

Off and Running

I'm so behind on blogging! I think I just have to blame it on my new mobility status as it's so hard to be inside when I can be outside exploring and making up for the past months.  So many wonderful things have happened since August! I am now a juried artist member in Fine Art Photography at the Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable, MA.  ( Now I have a "home" to refer clients who want to see or purchase my work. The gallery will also handle online sales, which is very exciting, too!  The images featured are part of my Cape Cod collection, depicting familiar landmarks, beach paths, dune grass and waterways. You can search "members' websites" for a list of members and their work; I'm so honored to be a part of such a prestigious group of artists. So if you are in the area please stop by!
