Hi and Welcome. My name is Debra, I have been thinking of starting my own blog for quite some time, and now seemed like the perfect time to give it a try. So, let’s get started.
I am a lifestyle photographer living in Southern New Jersey. I am a mom to a beautiful daughter, who was recently married, a wife to a great guy, who loves to cook and always makes me an incredibly yummy dinner, and a mom to a cute little Westie named McKenzie (pictured here).
I began photography in 2009 after receiving a camera as a Christmas gift from my husband in 2008. I was laid off from my job in February of 2009 and it seemed like fate was telling me something, so I began teaching myself photography. Fast forward to 2017, and I am now discovering that still life, particularly flower photography has been bringing me inner peace and comfort.
I will be sharing my photographs with you weekly, with a short story to accompany the photos. Each story will share why I photographed my subjects, what I derive from photographing them and how it makes me feel. My hope is that you will share in my journey of peaceful and quite reflection. Photography has taught me patience, which if you know me, I am not a patient person. It has gotten me through some very tough times in my life, bringing me inner peace and joy.
So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, take a break from the hectic world and join me for some weekly inspiration and some beautiful photography.
