Published in Artful Blogging magazine! {Columbus Ohio Photographer, Northwestern Michigan Photographer}

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

When Artful Blogging magazine first came out, I was immediately & deeply smitten! There were pages upon pages of beautiful photographs, art and poetic words to get lost in for hours. The magazine was food for my creative soul and the images were so moving and inspiring - such talented artists. So... when I received an email earlier this year from Stampington (who publishes Artful Blogging) saying they were interested in featuring my photography and writing, I was a little incredulous. How did they find me, I wondered. My work is simply the result of how I see and experience the world every single day. Yesterday, my complimentary copy came in the mail, and it was almost surreal to see my photographs and words in print! I was over the moon!! And I am elated and honored that several of my favorite portraits from my portrait photography business were selected by Stampington for the feature! And for those of you who know about my copilot Maggie May - you can imagine my glee that she was also going to be featured! Still pinching myself a little about it all! And feeling very grateful for the gift of how I see the world - as a beautiful, magical place.

That is so beautiful!! I love the incorporation of the portraits of the girls and of Maggie along with some of my favorite fine art images of yours! I can't wait to see this in print. They do a great job, and wow 8 pages? that's like the most I have ever seen! I think they are smitten with you, too! Soon the world will be coming to buy your images...:)))

I just received my copy of Artful Blogging and was immediately drawn to your words and your photographs. You embody a lot of what I hope to accomplish in my own blog...a combination of portrait work but also continue being my creative outlet. I really look forward to enjoying your blog more in the future! Have a wonderful weekend!

Congratulations! I am visiting your blog after reading about it in Artful Blogging. Being someone who write Morning Pages daily, I loved the line, "Blogging has taken the place of the Morning Pages." I struggle to find the time to keep up with posting on my blogs. Thank you for that thought.
