New Site and New Shop Launching Soon

I am excited to share with you that I just launched a brand new site with the purpose being to have a place to visit for peace of mind. Please visit www.SerenitySerenity.com to read more. I write and share over there on a daily basis...everything from thoughts to creative projects, art and photography. The hope is for it to be an uplifting and inspiring place to visit. 

I recently launched a styled stock photo shop here on my photography website and now that I have the new site I am going to combine everything. I can't wait to launch the new store that will start out with styled stock photos and t-shirts I've designed. It will grow from there.

Here's a peek at the logo for the new online shop. 

A Photoshop Project, Butterfly Fabric

I love color and texture and beautiful fabrics. I had the idea to someday use my photos to create unique fabrics. On a recent trip I started painting in Photoshop using one of my Butterfly photos to see where it would lead.

This is the image I started with....

Below is the result from editing in Photoshop using only the image above. I think this would be a really beautiful piece of fabric, imagine it made into a skirt. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter for updates about some neat products I'll be launching soon.

Pieces of Fabric and a Portrait, #1

A new project I started quite a while ago. The idea...I make a dress or outfit using one piece or a few pieces of fabric, no sewing, just wrapping, tying and pinning the fabrics around the person I'm photographing and then create beautiful portraits. 

For this photo shoot I bought four pieces of fabric: plain white, white tulle, white lace with beaded edge, blush chiffon with flower appliqués. You will see below the different ways I layered and used the fabrics. Sometimes the fabric was a backdrop, sometimes it was "the dress". All pinned with the orange clips you see below.

I made the bouquet from flowers I purchased at the grocery store. 

The fabrics and clips before...
