Red Dress in Spring

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.


The energy of the universe (& Facebook) fascinates me. I volunteered with this woman years ago. I remembered her as put-together, smart, talented, & well-connected.

We connected again some years later – six to be exact. I remember because I was going through cancer treatment. So was she.

We’d touch base on occasion and talk about creative ideas. We talked about her doing a portrait session with me for at least two years! We found a date and scheduled it.

As I waited for her to arrive yesterday, I opened Facebook memories. I had chills when the memory popped up that 10 years ago to the day, is when we volunteered together, taking photos of the Miracle Field Grand Opening at the Pabst Farms YMCA.

I showed that post to Lisa. We couldn’t get over the timing of connecting with each other.

Her session was amazing!


Reach: Marin Society of Artists juried selection in : ALL ABOUT WOMEN 2022

My pictures tell of my freedom of soul, of my emancipation from fear.


A few years ago I found the work of photographer #annebrigman Her work from around 1913 was considered visionary.

“Her figures are not limp or passive observers of nature, but rather participants in nature—they are active, strong, vigorous, engaged, and interconnected with their surroundings.”

Her photographs & words are beautiful.

When I scout a location for a client’s portrait session, I’m mindful of the story each client wants to tell.

This client saw my work, looked me in the eyes and said ‘I want to do an outdoor nude session & you’re the one to do it’. She’s a Forester 🌲

After she saw her images and completed her order, I shared some of Anne Brigman’s work with her. It was an honor for both of us.
