Going Green!

July 30, 2009 at 5:51 pm (Uncategorized)

I have started to use a new professional printing lab for my photography business.  This new lab offers Eco Friendly photo paper!!  I am very excited about this!  So, I am now offering the option to use Eco Friendly photo paper for a small additional charge  instead of the traditional photo paper I am still currently using.   

According to the lab, the eco friendly paper is 100% post consumer waste and is 100% wind power manufactured. 

Feel free to come check out my shop and try out this eco friendly paper!!

Butterflies and Dragonflies

July 27, 2009 at 5:13 pm (Uncategorized)

While at the Botanic Gardens, I was able to capture a few butterflies and a dragonfly.  I love both of these insects!  They are just so beautiful and elegant, yet fragile. 

I have always wanted to capture a pretty dragonfly.  This one that I found was has one I have never seen before.  It had a blackish body with speckled wings.  So unique!

This second Dragonfly print has not been added to Etsy yet, but it will be soon!

More Flowers!!

July 21, 2009 at 3:50 pm (Uncategorized)

I really love photographing flowers.  I love to try to be different with my angles and with my edits.  Flowers are so beautiful and I strive to capture that beauty….hopefully in a new way!

Yesterday I had the chance to shoot some really pretty flowers in my In-Law’s neighborhood.  Today, I also plan to go back to the Botanic Gardens, so expect more flower posts over the next few days!!

Tulips

July 18, 2009 at 5:04 pm (Uncategorized)

Oh, how I love Tulips!  They are such a beautiful flower.  They are simple, yet elegant!  A few months ago, my husband and I took the kids to the Botanic Gardens and they had tons of Tulips of all shapes and colors.  I was in tulip heaven!

Here are two examples of the beautiful tulips I captured that day.

Movement

July 16, 2009 at 3:22 pm (Uncategorized)

Yesterday, I took the kids to the Zoo we have here in Denver.  The Zoo has a nice carousel that the kids like to ride from time to time.  Yesterday was one of those times.   While we waited for our turn on the carousel, I made an attempt at some abstract photography.   

I am happy with how the pictures turned out.  I love the movement in the pictures and I love how the pictures make you wonder what you are looking at (that is, if you didn’t know it was a carousel).

I hope to head out around Denver one night to try and get more movement shots!

Its been too long

July 14, 2009 at 3:58 am (Uncategorized)

I have been awful at updating my blog!  Life and summer have been keeping me busy.  We have had birthdays and camping trips and family in town.  Its been a great summer so far!

When I think if summer, I think of the beach and when I think of the beach, I think of the waves, and starfish!  🙂   I love the beach!

These are two of my prints that are currently in my Etsy shop!
