I feel great wonder, joy and curiosity in the world around me. My images range from thoughtful portraits of people to sweeping landscape panoramas to the often overlooked, but exquisitely beautiful, details of nature. With every image, I incorporate a sense of design that is either inherent in the subject matter or the result of my composition decisions. Macro photography in the garden has opened

Today was installation day for my solo exhibit at Children’s National in DC. Shout out to the husband and wife team of James (a fine artist) and Belinda, who install exhibits as a side business, as well as Gallery Curator Greg Scott. I had a schematic to follow and helped by lining up the items in succession along the opposite walls for them to begin the install. Once that was done, I left them to work their magic. I’ll be over there later this week to bring a few extra details (some labels for some extra pieces and such) and will get some photos and a video to share.

Garden Muse: A Botanical Portfolio runs from May 27 – August 30 at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., 111 Michigan Avenue, NW. The show will be up for viewing before those dates, with some things left to tweak (they’re ordering show postcards that I designed, for example).

The ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the gallery being sponsored by Atlantic Coast Mortgage is at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 30. My exhibit is the first installation as the newly-named gallery.


Singing my niece Lauren Drawdy's praises—I highly recommend her for virtual assistant services, web design and other techie needs! She designed my lovely botanical-photography-only website,, and I can't recommend her highly enough for this task. She's in the process of creating a portrait-photography-only site for me now, then will work on my online handcrafted goods store.

She's uber talented, very professional, competitively priced and so easy to work with—loads of resources, great ideas and ample enthusiasm! In addition to her website design services, check out her VIP Days offerings:

I'm opening up my calendar in June for some VIP Days!

Tell your friends. Tell your dog. Tell your neighbor.

A VIP Day is a set day that you get me all to yourself. (Not like that, weirdo.)

You just get my undivided attention to help get your tech-y tasks completed so you can take a big ol' sharpie and cross them off that list that's been sitting there for months. Wouldn’t that feel fantastic?!


My botanical photography exhibit runs from May 27 – August 30 at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.

If you're in the DC area, I hope you can come see it.

I'll be sharing photos of the installation (happening next weekend), the ribbon-cutting ceremony (to celebrate the gallery being sponsored by Atlantic Coast Mortgage) at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 30, and some shots of my work on display in the gallery. (I'll do a short video tour as well!)


Like headbands as much as I do? How about fun, comfortable and reversible ones? Come see the many (many, many) varieties I’ve made for the Holiday Pop-Up shop this coming weekend! One for me, one to sell, one for me, one to sell…

Of course I’ll also have lots of botanical photography-related items like gallery wrapped canvases in a variety of sizes, framed prints, matted prints, a large variety of greeting cards and more!

It’s this weekend, Nov. 18 & 19, 10-4 pm at my shared studio at 7664 Fullerton Road, Suite A4 (walk-up to suite on the right). If you’re local to VA, MD and DC, come see me and 10 other artisans this weekend and get your holiday shopping started!

And for my faraway friends, stay tuned for my online shop!



My new botanical-photography-only site is live and ready to view! There are LOTS of photos (grab your popcorn and soda and enjoy the lengthy show). Scroll down and click on anything that prompts you to click!

A gazillion thanks to my uber-talented niece, Lauren Drawdy, for the spectacular job she did on this site! I am so, so, SO excited about the results.

There's another great photo gallery under "PORTFOLIO"— and it's called "MORE EYE CANDY," and has all horizontal botanical photos.

Be sure to click on "FREEBIES" and enter your email address so you can download my newly-expanded "Photography in the Garden" magazine and also receive a monthly creativity newsletter, which I'll be starting in December! I won't share your email with anyone; you're just sharing with me to get your freebies and hear from me on occasion!

If you need a website for a competitive price with someone who is a delight to work with, great with ideas and feedback, and has a whole lotta patience with creative people like her aunt, reach out to her! (I told her she's mine for the time being, lol). You can click on her name at the bottom of the home screen to get in touch with her. (She's going to work on a site for herself, with prompting from me!)

This one is for her husband Chris' realty business in Texas:

And this site for a remodeling company she works with in San Antonio:
