I titled this piece, "Floral Blow," and loved being able to capture this while the wind was blowing. My original intent was to create this photograph in to a black and white but felt the color version popped more.
I titled this piece, "Minimal Pop," due to the minimal and abstract styles of art inspired by this floral photograph. With the use of natural light and post editing techniques I was able to convey the softness of this poppy. Check out my color version photograph of poppies.
I created this image to share with you my new adventure on Pinterest and streamlining my social media accounts. I decided to no longer use Instagram and Facebook in order to have more time creating art and doing life. I felt a desire to have more focus and managing multiple social media accounts was a bit distracting and required time I wasn't able to give. Therefore, I hope my Pinterest journey will be one that will help showcase my art and TpT endeavors. Have a great week folks!
I took this photo years ago and have always loved this photograph since capturing this image propelled me to have more of an interest in abstract photography. When I have more time on my hands, I hope to explore this subject matter more in depth. Therefore, stay tune...for now, I hope you all have a blessed and loving week.
When I took this photograph, I wanted to play with perspective and I got really low to the ground to capture my son being carried by his gracious cousin during a day at the river. In looking at this image, I am reminded of how it is important for us to help carry one another's burdens or, simply, to lend a helping hand.
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” - Charles Dickens
The light on this day was so beautiful and I wanted to capture a minimal image of the leaf.
I was very excited to see the lighting through the door in these images and wanted to capture my son playing with his toy figurines that he got today. His battle noises were priceless as well.
It is always fun having cousins visit and exploring new places. My sweet girl M had a great time getting her feet wet in this river near our home. She is definitely a get-your-hands-and-feet-dirty kind of gal. The more muddy her hands and feet are, the happier she becomes. I sure love childhood play; blessed to be able to capture it.
I love this photograph and plan on printing this one and hanging it up on my kitchen wall. The lines, shadows and light give this image movement.
The minimal and abstract styles of art inspired this floral photograph, using shadows to capture the subtleness of its beauty and soft quality.
When I'm able to find time to photograph, I've been on this black and white kick of playing with landscape and light. I absolutely adore the sun illuminating on water and light glistening on land. Such joy to my heart in being able to capture such beauty. This print is available at my shop.
It was such a fun trip a year ago during my excursion in Mexico. I loved every thing about this local church, from the lines, shapes and composition to the vintage quality. Not to mention, the locals were kind.
One of my most favorite subject to photograph are my children playing. There is so much joy and freedom expressed when I observe them play. If I'm not behind the camera, I try to jump right in to playing with them.
I loved the reflection of the trees in the puddle and knew I wanted a photo of this while on a stroll with my little ones. There is a beautiful contrast to the water, hard road and trees.
The fog this day was so beautiful as it surrounded the almond orchard trees. I wanted to take a photograph of my little ones with their silhouette but they weren't too keen on being photographed in the cold. Either way the image tone came out beautifully. An instant download print is available at my shop for purchase.
This photo was taken with my camera phone and I wanted to continue with an old personal project with no deadline. It has been a challenging few months in which I haven't been able to commit to photography or art as much as I hope but grateful for the times that I am able to do something creative.
What can I say about this image other than it makes my heart smile. Taken at La Jolla Beach, CA and how I really miss the ocean. The smell, the sound, the sand, the water...I hope to connect with it soon.
I love capturing blown bubbles and converting it into a black and white photograph. Hope you all blow some bubbles today.
"Blowing bubbles is like blowing kisses, they each cause our hearts to smile."
I had a wonderful and relaxing vacation in Mexico and wanted to share a few more photos from my trip earlier this year. It is a trip I hope to take again and spend more time at the back and eating at the local restaurants.
This was a fun day meeting up with friends and enjoying a beautiful walk on Stanislaus campus. I knew I would be photographing some images as the campus is quite beautiful.

Welcome to my visual thread of art and photography! In case you are wondering, my name is pronounced sa-rome and I'm excited that you've dropped by! My days consist of the lovely chaos of caring for 2 active kids (if you have any running around at home, visit my learning corner for fun art resources) thus any free time is devoted to creating. Read more about me here. Happy Inspirations!
