Frederick MD Fine Art Photographer . SELF PORTRAIT


It's been a while since I've done a self-portrait...something that I love taking, but often times do not show my face. Or if I do include my face, it's hidden by looking down or with a hat, etc.

I belong to a local camera club and last night the theme was Self Portrait, so this was my submission and it won the category! Yay! There were a lot of great entries and it's one of my favorite themes of photography b/c it gets most people out of their comfort zone and is also a wonderful photographic challenge.

The set-up for this shot was that I wanted to be back lit and have a white skirt on so that the light could stream through it. And then I'm holding two loves..my Diana camera and some flowers...oh and another love that's included in the photo...shoes! I used to have a crazy obsession - for a long time my husband called me Shoe-san. :~)

Maryland Fine Art Photographer . I'm in The Hive!

Dandelion Series

The YoYo Swings

The Surfer, Chandelier and Bellagio Blooms

I'm so excited to see my work featured in The Hive! This little shop is "located on 7-mile Anna Maria Island, which is situated off the west coast of Florida. A destination for family vacations, weddings, and seasonal residents, the island sticks to the "Old Florida" way of life; small beach houses, no chain restaurants, and only two ways on-and-off the island (Manatee and Cortez Bridges)."

If you are visiting Anna Maria Island, please stop in The Hive and enjoy all the wonderful items that fill their shop!

Monday's Featured Etsy Seller


On Monday's, I'll be highlighting Etsy sellers that I've discovered...and today's seller is Love Letters Jewelry. These pretty necklaces come with pale gemstones, silver charms, and a disc pendant stamped with an initial of your choosing.

I think they would make lovely "push presents". A push present is a gift that a husband gives to his wife after she has a baby! Though, in my case I didn't push as my husband recently reminded me when I asked him what happened to my push present. I had a c-section. He's a funny guy...funny, funny. I just might have to buy one of these myself and just let him know that it was from him. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
