Foto Friday - Scenes of Newburyport

Newburyport, Massachusetts is my hometown. I was lucky to grow up in such an incredible place, a place that my entire family and previous generations has grown up. I like to joke that I’m a third generation townie… however, it could be more like 6th generation.Growing up, I took for granted what a special place Newburyport is. Like any high-schooler, I wanted out. After four years of college in the western part of the state, I realized that there was nothing better than my little hometown. And as I get older, it has become one of my favorite places to photograph....more

9 Great Books to Inspire Creativity

I have a pool. With small children, this is a blessing and a curse: A blessing because my family enjoys swimming, and a curse because my family enjoys swimming—which means I need to be vigilant and sit by the pool all day even when I don't feel like swimming. ...more

Mostly Unedited Week in Review - 9/10/14

With the advent of digital manipulation of photos and the rampant sharing of people's lives, often pictures and videos are only shown once they've been edited. This editing consists of filters, highlights, and touch-ups, not to mention often only sharing the highlights of our lives. With judgement and comparison being so interwoven into our social culture, the expectations of ourselves and others are often so high that simply attempting to reach them leaves us feeling even more vulnerable....more

Digitizing Photos: How to Combine the Front and Back into One Image

As I mentioned in a recent post, I've been digitizing a lot of family history stuff of late. Even though this is something I've been slowly (ever. so. slowly.) working on for a while, I needed to get in gear and complete the task.

Photo Friday: Nightfall

As I scrolled through my archives in search of inspiration for today's Photo Friday prompt, I realized that I take a LOT of sunset pictures! I also realized that each one, no matter how well it may have turned out, ended up being a pale imitation of the actual sight I saw. I don't feel too bad about that, though, as I'm not entirely sure it's even possible for the depths of those vibrant colours to be captured accurately anywhere but in our memories! ...more
