Taking pictures is savouring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.
- Marc Riboud
This collection of photographs is how I see the world. From the tiniest details of a lotus flower opening to the wide open vistas of mountain landscapes, the world takes my breath away with its colors, patterns and contrasts. I hope to share that striking beauty with you in ways that take your breath away, as well.
I am inspired by natural, authentic beauty. I am equally moved by the sound of a child's giggle and a glowing evening sky, by the incredible contrast of a red flower on a green stem, and a dolphin leaping out of the water. As you look through the collection, you will discover photographs from a variety of locations and with varying subjects, yet consistency in the colors, lines and approach.
I hope the photographs bring you somewhere incredible.
I opened my studio ten years ago in New Haven, Connecticut, passionate about using my photography to help people connect with their families, their stories, and their own beauty. When I'm not at the studio I love to travel and collect new photographs for the fine art series. My work can be found in private collections around the world, and has been featured in The New York Times, CNN, National Geographic, Forbes, MSN, and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. I live in New Haven with my husband, Yale University professor Dr. Paul Van Tassel, and our three kids.
