Japan Exhibit

I am really exhibited to be a part of the Japan-U.S. Art Exchange Exhibition taking place in two cities in Japan this month. A big thanks to Yasuyuki Uzawa for inviting me to participate.

The Bree and Ty Show is Back On!

Okay, so the reason I title this “The Bree and Ty Show” is because they are quite the pair when it comes to camera theatrics..especially Bree. Although, this time it seemed that Ty had learned enough from his big sis to take the show. I am so late on posting these pictures. They were actually taken in November for their Christmas card. We decided to stick around my parents’ house for this shoot, so that meant country roads and crop remnants. The colors of the crop remnant really worked well with their outfits, and of course, they had fun rummaging through the field. I love these kids…they really crack me up…seriously, how cute are they?

Hillary & Joseph :: Engaged!

One of the joys of being a wedding photographer is being able to be a part of such an important event in peoples lives. It is especially gratifying when you get to photograph for someone you know. Hillary was one of my photography students from Lenoir Community College, so I was so happy to have the opportunity to photograph this very important time in her life. I also know Joseph from the Greenville Christian Fellowship which was the church my husband and I attended when we lived in Greenville. After Undergaduate at ECU and law school in Ohio, Joseph is back at ECU working towards his MBA. Smart guy, no doubt! One of their requests was to go on ECU’s campus for pictures. As an ECU alumni myself, I have to say it was nice to be back on campus. It made me realize how much I miss being a student.

Hillary and Joseph are getting married in Kinston this September, so more images to come! Hillary is also a photographer so I thought I would incorporate some images of her with a camera in hand! Here are some of my favs from the day:

More Purell Transfers from Italy Trip

The hand sanitizer image transfer process has proved to be a beautiful technique for the some of the image I made while in Italy in 2011. I can’t believe it has been that long. I have been happy to work with this process for these images because I believe it truly supports the feeling of these images. I’m ready to go back!

Selected Work in 8th Biennial :: East Carolina University

The juror’s lecture and opening reception for the 8th Photographic Image Biennial Exhibition will be this Thursday, January 24th at the Wellington B. Gray Gallery at East Carolina University. This year’s Juror is Sam Wang who has an extensive history in photographic exhibition and education. He is well known for his construction of custom cameras and his stunning landscapes which are distinctively circular. To view his work and history click HERE. This year I am very happy to be part of the exhibit. The piece above titled: “Flynn Cemetery Offerings” was chosen for this year’s exhibit. “Flynn Cememtery Offerings” is a mix between digital collage and scanography. The entire image is scanned on a flatbed scanner, apart from the subtle hint of handwritten text and the faint image of Ty (my nephew). I will be taking a group of my photography students from Francis Marion University to the opening this Thursday. If you are looking for a great exhibit of photographic works this exhibit will not disappoint! Hope to see you there!
