I’ve always loved the art of photography, but it wasn’t until I moved from the bustling city of Washington DC to the peaceful White Mountains of New Hampshire in 2002 that I decided to get serious about my hobby. Surrounded by stunning nature, I was finally compelled to purchase a high quality camera and take several hundred shots of the flowers in my perennial gardens. I had taken flower photos before, but this time I was amazed at what I had been able to capture. The detail. The color. The rawness of being so up close to nature. I was instantly hooked and thus began a beautiful marriage between my passion for flowers and my love of photography. When I finally merged the two, I saw the infinite beauty of nature that so often goes unnoticed. It is a joy for me to be able to share my photographs with others who also appreciate the simple, yet striking, vibrant beauty that flowers so generously offer us all.
