Sunrise Retreats and Online Courses Coming Soon
By sixteen I considered myself a photographer.
My signature series of sunrise images was born in 2016 after a time of deep grief. It was a leap year, and a dark one for me. A friend challenged me to take one photo for each of the 366 days.
After a few weeks, this became a daily ritual, of capturing sunrise at the beach. It restored my connection to the Earth, and Spirit.
One morning, I noticed how much better I was feeling. Without thinking, I spontaneously placed my forehead to the sand and gave thanks. A few days later I found myself drawing a heart in the sand and placing a word or name inside. It was powerful. Since that day I have continued this practice at sunrise. Whether on a beach, grass, or in a parking lot on gravel, I spend a few moments in gratitude.
Sunrise photography has become my personal journey to creativity and sharing my spiritual connection through imagery. What evolved from this ongoing sunrise series is a daily post of images and inspirational messages on social media, as well as a self-published book Ray of Hope .
For over 30 years I've had a dual career. I work part time as an RN, caring for premature and sick infants. On my free days, I edit sunrise images or work in my studio photographing newborns. I have had the privilege of photographing hundreds of little humans, each one a unique little soul. Witnessing these newborn babies and newly born days fills me with gratitude for life and keeps me connected to Spirit. Photographs are printed at my custom lab on a varity of surfaces.
The best way to offer my printed images is using the methods I was trained in, which are archival processes. I have chosen a lucious cotton rag fiber paper, which give richer, more saturated colors, that last much longer than standard glossy paper prints.
Metal prints are exactly that, custom photographs printed on metal. These are vibrant and make a bold statement.
Acrylics are incredible! These photographs are custom prepared for purity of image quality, then married to an acrylic surface. These amazing pieces glow with the changing light of your environment. Perfect for your home office, living spaces or as wall art in hospitals and hotels.
You may think photographing sunrise every day would eventually lead to a loss of creativity. What I discovered is the opposite. The more I show up with the camera, the more I am inspired to "see" and create from what is present to me each day.
By using varying exposures I am able to express the movement of water and passage of time in the clouds, stillness in the water, or the soft flutter of bird in flight. Some days I stand in the water as I photograph, I feel my energy and the energy of nature become one in this moment. Another favorite technique is to move the camera randomly using a bit of a longer exposure. Layering color and light as an image gives a painterly effect. You can see examples in the abstract folder.
Completing my first year of daily sunrise was a pivotal turning point in my life. I have changed my life and schedule completely to honor this passion. Creating the book Ray of Hope, that raised funds for treatment, was a rewarding project. Themes and images from the Sunrise Series are currently featured in galleries along the eastern seaboard. Workshops on the connecting to spirit thru art coming soon.
