Switzerland Travel Photography

Riding the gondola toward the peak of Mount Pilatus resembles my life. Anticipation isn’t the only thing that rises as we near the summit.  The fog becomes dense, resulting in little to no visibility.     I traveled Switzerland eleven years ago.  Hence, photographing fog for over a decade.  But it wasn’t until recently that these…

Artist’s Journey Through The Fog

Fog comes in many forms. Therefore, it can be found anywhere from our brains to the environment.  After living in this fog for nearly two decades, I refuse to remain in the midst of it.  An artist’s journey through the fog is long, complex and unclear. Fog is beautiful. Although, it may not seem like…

Oak Tree Memorial For Miscarriage

Miscarriage is hard. Five years ago, I had a miscarriage.  Had I written this when the miscarriage happened, it would read differently.  For me, understanding trickled in as time passed and God’s plan began unfolding in my life. Truth is, I never pictured myself as a mother. Call me crazy, but I didn’t spend my nights…
