During a recent trip to Washington D.C. it rained almost everyday, but I believe there is always something to photograph in every weather situation. Having said that, I want to make sure to point out that I agree with my best friend Michelle in the idea that photographing statues or sculptures is not a reflection of talent by the photographer since they are photographing someone else’s artwork. This was a photography exercise in exploring the subject just for fun and I wanted to share! Be sure to check out The Lincoln Monument link to find out more about the creators and the symbolism behind this beautiful monument.

When I needed my wedding dress altered I called Lora at Van Lear Bridals to do the job. She did a great job and we became fast friends! Her shop is so unique and interesting that I had to go back and do a little personal shoot for myself. I love dress forms and she has several to choose from. Lora can fix anything and is an incredible designer. Stop by to look through her sketch book…she is so talented!!
Lately, I have been working on some shoots and images for a company that I cannot blog. So for fun, I thought I would share this little shoot in the meantime! Thanks, Lora for letting me play in your shop!
Earlier this year I decided to print a personal portfolio that would be just for me.The more any photographer shoots, the more you will see that photographer’s personal style and preferences. As I looked through my images, I can see those preferences repeating themselves. Actually, they are the same preferences I had when I was as a kid. When I would pick out a page to color in a coloring book, I always wanted that page to have one subject that was not too busy with the elements in the background. In a way, I am making my own coloring books now with this portfolio. It was a fun project and I really enjoy having a printed book that has a nice flow. Since the students that I taught had to submit a portfolio to the instructors to get their degree, I thought it would be fun to submit mine. F.Y.I., I passed and no, I wasn’t one of the judges!Below you can click on the thumbnails to see which images were included. A special thank you to all of the models in the images that trusted me by letting me do whatever I thought was best! I love working with people and making new artwork!
