Odds and Ends

Here are some faves that I've been wanting to share. Most are from this year but a couple are older. It was a good first year as a photographer. I learned tons and had a lot of opportunities to really develop my skills. Huge thanks to everyone who let me take their picture this year and to all the teachers in my life - often one and the same. Wishing everyone a wonderful 2015! [more]

Monica Martin - Phox

Phox - Chicago - 10-22-14

We met up at Tenney Park and spent about an hour and a half walking through the park and out onto the breakwater. It is so cool to meet people in this context and to be able to see the familial bonds. The light was beautiful and I'm really happy with how the photos turned out. [more]

I went on a family vacation at the beginning of the summer. We enjoyed a week in and around Holland, Michigan. Hiking, biking, beaching, badminton, food, books, ping pong, hot tub and lots of time to visit with each other. My nephew and niece both like being photographed so I practiced portraits of them and just shot whatever interested me. Here's a few that I like best. [more]
