“The sun shines,
When I’m with you,
Your smile makes me want to dance.
Tonight, I’ll put on my favorite gown,
Place a diamond comb in my hair,
Dazzle you with my beauty,
And sway in your arms,
Until the morning light appears.”

This photograph is the side of a Daffodil turned upside down. As I was photographing Daffodils from my garden I played with them to find unique angles to shoot. This reminded me of a woman’s ball gown. The first line of the poem is one of the meanings of the Daffodil in The Language of Flowers. The poem, was an inspiration from the Daffodils outside my window dancing in the afternoon sun.
Life is so busy right now. I once again have to apologize for my inactivity in the world of blogging. I cherish all of my followers and I appreciate those who stop by, browse through my blog, like my work, and leave comments. Please forgive me for not always returning that kind gesture. With three children, each in multiple activities, I find myself having a bit too much to juggle and very little time to browse blog posts and admire the work of my virtual friends.
With work I have been busy with product shoots, head shots, first communion portraits, senior portraits and more. I hope to blog about a couple of the unique projects in the near future. I have also been doing some behind the scenes work for future “big” projects with my photography….keep your fingers crossed for me! Hopefully they will come to fruition in the next 12 to 18 months.

The Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio in the heart of Doylestown recently hosted an art show and award ceremony to commemorate the bi-centennial of Doylestown being the county seat. I photographed the event for The Buck’s County Herald and felt so blessed to get to meet so many wonderful, and very talented people. The owners of the Gallery are kind, knowledgeable and a pleasure to get to know. For information about the Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio visit: http://www.gratzgallery.com/.

The Washington Saxophone Quartet recently visited Doylestown for a “Weekend of Saxophone”. I had the honor of attending and photographing three events at which they played beautiful, fun, inspiring music for various audiences. This is ONE of my favorite images of the quartet taken Saturday evening at the Mercer Museum. The quartet played in front of a crowd of approximately 80 people attending a fundraiser for two music programs in Buck’s County. More images will follow later in the week.
