My entire journey into photography happened because of the recession. When my husband and I relocated to Durham, NC for his graduate program, jobs were far and few between. To pass the time and to lift my spirits, I began a food blog. It was so much fun, and I learned a ton about the ins and outs of how to take an impactful picture. Having two small girls and a photography business has definitely slowed my recipe creations, but check out my Recipe Index for past recipes.
I absolutely love traveling and experiencing new parts of our world, but I am a huge homebody. Being home is soothing to my soul, and making our home feel like home is enlivening. Decorating is obviously part of that, but it’s also all the memories that take place within these walls. Plus my bed is super comfy.
Garden roses, hydrangeas, ranunculuses, poppies, tulips, lilacs, snapdragons, begonias… the list could go on and on. I LOVE flowers. I have fresh flowers inside our house regularly, and I’ve been working on adding more to the outside of our house, too. Flowers can be anything from dynamic, delicate, graphic, romantic, structural, and so much more. They are endlessly fascinating to me, and a common subject of mine in photography. Plus they smell pretty nice, too.
