Just in time for spring…

6 03 2016

RE-POST: In spring 2012, I had my first botanical photography exhibit, “Garden Muse: A Botanical Portfolio,” at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA. Barbara Kelley of Kelley Hospitality (who is also the editor-in-chief and my partner with Celebrate Home Magazine), did a phenomenal job of catering the reception in mid-April. There wasn’t a crumb left of anything when the event was over!

Barbara shares her yummy recipes and party tips in “Inspired by the Garden: Garden Muse Tea Reception,” in the summer issue of Celebrate Home Magazine. Barbara and I published four issues of Celebrate Home Magazine as a personal project in 2012-2013.

I am forever grateful to her for all her hard work and very major contributions to that very special day! Special thanks to Hollace Goodman, who served as catering assistant, for her work as well. Special thanks Ed Fagan of Columbia Photography and Margot Juliette Storch for photographing the event for us. I recapped the event on this blog in the links below:

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!

Check out my store on Society6!

19 04 2015

Trying my hand at an online store called Society6 to sell my photos on a variety of fun products! All images are available as unframed and framed prints as well as canvases, too, in a variety of different sizes.

I’ll be uploading more later, but there’s plenty to choose from now—prints (unframed, framed and canvas), iPhone/iPad/iPod cases, laptop skins, pillows, tote bags, and greeting cards.

I’m learning as I go and should be able to offer other products such as small area rugs, t-shirts, mugs and even shower curtains. I will be uploading more photos this week so check back often!

Check it out (and support a starving artist while you’re there)! Click on the link below and be sure to look at the list of other products on the left side of the screen.
