Butterfly Angel






Here's another new image for the Angels/Celestial Messengers series.

Tree Angel




Yesterday, I photographed 4 families at Oven Park back to back--what a marathon! I found out my battery ran low after about 3 hours of shooting. Luckily there was an outdoor outlet I could use to recharge momentarily before photographing the 4th family.










Here's a new image of Caitlin (whom I haven't seen in ages!) who has become a beautiful and vibrant young lady!

Holiday Ornaments 2011







































So these are the ornament designs that I will make for this holiday season. The prints will be inserted into clear mini-bookmark sleeves sized 2.75x3.46.

Poinsettia Angel



Last month, we attended my sister-in-law's wedding in OH and I photographed her stepdaughter. This time, I did not blend a cloud image with her. Instead I used an image of a clear blue sky that I had photographed this past weekend.

Devoted Wives Series



This image was inspired by my sister's mother-in-law, Lydia. Lydia's husband recently had a stroke and is going through rehab right now. My sister tells me how Lydia devotedly visits her husband every day to take care of him. Perhaps this image will be the first in a series titled Devoted Wives.

The Whisperers













I was inspired to do this series due to Gi being bothered by 2 boys at school. Her mother told me that the boys would whisper to her during circle time.

Summer Series



LeMoyne recently announced that their upcoming June exhibit is titled "Dog Days of Summer"--a photo exhibit depicting summer in the south. So that gave me an idea to work on this series: St George Island beach, Smokey Mts National Park and Issaqueena Falls, SC. Each image also depicts a summer flower: morning glory, daisy, balloon flower.

Psychological Self Portraits


I've been working on a self-portrait series for the upcoming Artists' League Summer Annual exhibit. The theme is psychological self-portrait. This one is more about the roles we play in society, titled "Social Niceties".

This tryptich is part of the What Came Before Us series, using vintage photographs of grandma (maternal), mom and me.
