Sewing Seeds...

Spring has sprung and we are planting our dry season summer garden. Here we were picking wildflowers out of the garden patches and my daughter decided to spread the seeds...since we LOVE wildflowers...

Every Earth Day, we celebrate our home with a hike and a beach clean up. As my family and I stroll thru this north shore valley on our hike we were blown away by all the Nene Geese hanging by all the taro fields. They didn't seem at all phased by us, actually it seemed as though they were checking US out!
Good fun, great hike, with lots of birds and plants to explore....of course my little scientists had their field guides and told us exactly what everything was!

Creative Minds are seldom tidy....

After a fun art project on color theory inspired by artist, Wassily Kandinsky, I was equally impressed by the "mess" one of my students created. The colors and the spirals of pencil shavings reflected the lesson just as much as the finished project. It also reminded me of a plaque my mom has hanging in her kitchen..."Creative Minds are Seldom Tidy"

Birdie Friend

Since my daughter was a wee-one barely holding herself up in her kiddie pool, birds would come to the edge of her little pool as she played and sit on the pools edge. As she began talking she'd call them "birdie friends". Mynah birds and thrushes would watch her as she played. This image was captured one summer day in eastern Long Island, NY at one of my kids favorite parks. Of all the things to do in NY this is by far my kids favorite place. I enjoy the fact that my kids find energy and comfort in nature!

I simply love my job! My love for photography has taken me to some of the most beautiful places (some of which I still need to explore) and has introduced me to some of the most inspiring individuals. Being able to capture moments in one's life to me is one of the most amazing gifts I can bring to people.

Whether it be capturing a moment in the celebration of one's engagement or wedding, the anticipation of a new baby or birth of a new child, cherishing family or children, catching the action of surf or sport, the simplicity of a shell or flower, photography is my passion and creating beautiful images is my gift to you!

From Feet to Smiles...

Here we begin my photo journal.
As my son dances across a beat-up old surfboard on a cloudy north shore day, I watch his little toes glide across it's surface and think...they grow way too quick! This is my way of freezing time & documenting my journey as a photographer thru everyday life images in which I encounter inspiration in some of the most unsuspecting places.
