I’ve been thinking for a while about starting a blog. Although I’ve never been much of a writer, I hope to have an outlet to share my photography and perhaps a random thought or two. It’s nerve racking, but I’ve recently been inspired to put myself out there and see what happens.


A few weeks ago one of my childhood mentors passed away. She was the mother of one of my dearest friends; she was the vibrant, warm-hearted, always surprising women that welcomed me into their home with open arms. And she was the first person to ever acknowledge that what I do with a camera could be art.

Viola Moriarty inspired many people in her life, and continues to do so even though she’s no longer with us. In the days after her death, my creative side was restless. How could I even begin to honor this woman? I went for a long walk with my camera. The rain had just stopped and the light was beautiful; I came home with a series of images that I was proud of, something I hadn’t felt in a while. And so, with this inspiring woman in my thoughts, and with her daughter’s encouragement, I humbly begin my first blog.

  1. You have an wonderful sense of the moment, an innate ability to capture both the subject matter while also evoking the underlying feelings behind it. Well done.
