Pop | Appropriation

I just realized I hadn’t posted any of my more recent fine art work!

I’ve always been drawn to old images. I think it’s super cool to go through
vintage stores and look at all the old photographs that are for sale. I
wonder who the people are? Where are they from? What were they doing in
the photographs? I think it’s sad that the images just sit around and
wait for someone to pluck them up. That someone is me. I’m the one that
is going to buy them and give them new life. The question is…what do I
do with them once I buy, or download, them? 

After thinking and thinking and more thinking, I finally figured it out! I’m going to give
them new life through digital collage. I have a series of protest images
that I’ve been working on, but here is an image I made for my brother
in law. He’s redecorating his house and needs some original artwork. I
sourced an image of a motorcycle rider and then I joined it with an
image I took of a sunset in Kauai. The collage makes the old image
relevant again and that just makes me so happy.  

Enjoy my happy motorcycle rider!

engagement session | I couldn’t help myself

I edited this image today and I wasn’t going to post it until my clients had their full image library, but I just can’t help myself. It was such a sweet moment…I didn’t feel voyeuristic at all. I felt like I was truly documenting the beautiful love of two people. It warmed my heart…


engagement session | Jamie + Jason

session | I was so excited when I was asked to photograph Jamie +
Jason’s engagement session. I hadn’t met Jason yet, but Jamie was so
sweet and hilariously funny! I knew he was going to be a great dude. We decided to hit up a barn for the first
half of their session and then we moved to beautiful open space for some sunset and dry grass pics. Thank you so much for being such
fantastic people and having such a positive attitude regarding our
weather challenges. I had an absolute blast. I hope you did too!

Here’s a sneak peek of Jamie & Jason’s engagement session:
