Textures of the Dominican
Sunday, April 27, 2008 | travel           

As promised I finally have some images ready from our trip to the Dominican Republic.  I have an obvious love for Palm Trees so the post is a little palm heavy but more than palm trees I have a love for boats.  Since High School I've had many opportunities to travel overseas and even before becoming a photographer I always set out to photograph boats from all over the world.  My number one goal has always been to find fishing boats in every country but didn't mind settling for any type of boat if I couldn't find a fishing boat - unfortunately during this trip I was only able to find one I wanted to shoot.

All of the images below were taken during the wedding.

I wanted to talk about little more about why I love boats, especially fishing boats.  I talk a lot about my family history in my website bio and I'm currently working on something that I hope to turn into a lifelong project called the "Florida Project".  For many generations my family has made a living fishing the Florida waters.  I love traveling to other places in the US and around the world and seeing people making a living the same way my family has for so long.  While the two boats below aren't meant for fishing but transporting tourist, I couldn't help but love the scene.

Ahh, Glacier...
Wednesday, January 30, 2008 | travel           

I think I'm going to start a category called "Old Stuff". Because this is such a slow season the most exciting thing going on right now seems to be my many late night dates with the album design software.  

I've mentioned many times on this blog that my husband and I are obsessed with vacationing and traveling.  I don't know if it's because we work hard or if it's because we just like to play.  I think it's the latter.  Since my husband had never been out west I decided to play tour guide and introduce him to altitudes most Florida boys (and girls) try to avoid.  Below are a few images from one of my favorite places in the world - Glacier National Park.  

I guess my palm tree looks a little out of place.  

This is Ryan driving in our rented Mustang on the "Road to the Sun".  I can't imagine why they call it that!  

Being a huge western movie fan I loved this shot because I think this looks like a photograph in an old western.

Faces of the Amazon
Thursday, December 13, 2007 09:39 | travel           

This summer I had the incredible privilege of traveling to Colombia and then down the Amazon river with a group of missionaries from Florida.  I went along to simply photograph the ministry but more importantly the lives and faces of the people in the area.    I've always LOVED this type of photography but at the same time it's very hard to do it in a way that is honoring and respectful to the people.  Before I was a photographer I traveled quite a bit overseas and always wished I was able to document it through the lens of a camera.  I found that after a bit of trust is earned and a lot of respect is given the people actually love to have their photograph taken... especially when they can see themselves on the back of the camera!  :-)  There are a lot of pictures because it's just so hard to pick only a few favorites.  I've posted this once before on my old blog but thought that during this slow season I would reintroduce the Faces of the Amazon.     The first five images were taken in the small but very busy city of Leticia which is located on the Amazon River on the Colombian side of the Brazilian and Colombian border.
