“Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music”. - Ronald Reagan I must admit, I have a tiny bit of an obsession with sunsets and clouds, especially over any body of water or mountains. Being outside in nature and marveling at her unquestionable beauty always brings me piece of mind and reminds me how life is grand. On my 42nd Birthday (where on earth did the time go?) I celebrate some of my most sensational photos of Mother Nature […]
“If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.” – Maya Angelou Today I am grateful for so much in my life. My family, this wonderful life, my health and happiness. My heart is so full of love and thankfulness. As I spend this Thanksgiving holiday with my immediate family, the first time we have all been together in years without spouses or kids, I am grateful for the love that we share […]
Today is my son Max’s ninth birthday. I can hardly believe how quickly the time has gone by. Exactly two years and four days later on November 15, 2006 I had my second child, Sophia. Becoming a mother has been the most amazing thing I have ever done and ever will do. I am amazed by how much love and compassion a mother can have for her children and am truly, utterly blessed by their love and presence in my […]
I started the practice of yoga this week and am realizing how much I need this right now in my life to balance my body, heart and soul. Today I’m dedicating my mantra to someone I love very much. My mantra is to never ever give up. When life kicks and breaks us down, fight back and stay strong. The mind is a powerful thing. It is up to you to decide each and every day whether or not it […]
I am a fighter. I am strong. I have the courage and strength to climb many mountains beyond. All photos taken along the Annapurna Trek in Nepal. November 2010.
Some days I find that photography has a way of speaking to me more than words can say. Today happens to be one of those days. Perhaps it is the imminent change in seasons that is rapidly approaching. Soon all the color will be gone and the landscape will be barren and brown. Yet then the first snowfall will come our way and blanket our world in a million sparkling diamonds of joy. “Live out of your imagination, not your […]
In honor of our fading fall colors and Halloween, I thought I’d put together a post honoring all the beautiful orange colors I’ve seen around the world. Often I’m tempted to take pictures of blue and green hues as I love capturing landscapes. But what about orange? Orange can be quite a lovely, warm color and can also be sometimes found in the most unexpected places. Here is a look at some of the fabulous orange hues I’ve seen through […]
“My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been”. - Diane Arbus Among one of the most unearthly beautiful places in the world lies the dramatic, stark landscape of Iceland. Known as “the land of fire and ice”, Iceland has by far been one of the most spectacular places I have ever experienced. For you don’t simply visit Iceland; you experience it.
Today is a glorious picture perfect day in Minneapolis. A day that makes me feel incredibly happy to be alive, breathing in the fresh crisp fall air and marveling at the gorgeous display of Mother Nature’s brilliant fall beauty. I took a run around my lovely urban Lake Harriet, reflecting on what is on my agenda for the week. I couldn’t stop taking pictures along the way. It was so heartwarmingly beautiful that all my worries and concerns drifted away. […]

Fall has always been my absolute favorite time of year. As the days and nights grow shorter and the sun shines her glorious luminous light, the leaves ever so slowly begin to change. This year, fall has been coming at a snail’s pace given our Indian Summer. Yet during the last few days the leaves have begun to turn into their magical tapestry of colors. Hues from pumpkin oranges, to scarlet reds and golden yellows delight the eyes. It is […]
