My photography is inspired by unique locations, animals, people, and a variety of situations that are often overlooked. Beauty usually goes unnoticed and unappreciated, yet it reflects aspects of our humanity that is memorable to capture with a camera. I strive to capture moments of beauty and magic. Whether photographing people or landscapes, the same approach applies. I am placing myself at the moment, being patient, and having faith that something magical will unfold.
A sense of reverence has fueled my photography for the natural world and its remarkable beauty. I resonate toward images that depict a peaceful coexistence between humans and nature. These quiet moments with my camera brings me back to my childhood: exploring, be curious, dreaming, seeing, and breathing in the beauty that surrounds me.
In the evolution of my photography, I am humbled by trying new techniques in analog and digital photography. I’ve learned that creativity requires a perennial sense of playfulness, finding that childlike fascination for the magic contained within each opportunity in life.
i adore things of beauty and grace.
i began photography during a Watchfulness practice about 10 years ago. Soulfulness inside photography seems to pull at my heart constantly. i am mostly interested in doing portraits of women or images that evoke vulnerability, spirituality, sensuality, reverence and quietude.
i am intrigued with still life of innate objects – antiquity, convents, monasteries, Russian Orthodoxy, opera and poetry – all inspire me.
i live in the French Quarter, New Orleans, LA. i am a member of of the New Orleans Photo Alliance.
