In the Studio: Tiger Lily



On our Wedding Anniversary this summer my husband brought me home 7 vases of flowers. Yes, seven. I spent hours the next day photographing all the unique beauties. This Tiger Lily was one of the most unique his picked. The yellow was so bright and I just had to see it softened up. What do you think?

The Country: Wildflowers



There's a lot of things to love about the countryside in Summer; tall golden prairie grass billowing in the breeze like waves in the ocean, lighting bugs dancing at twilight, and the call of the morning dove over the foggy morning sky.  

Wildflowers put on their own unique show. A show of color, where you least expect it. Wild thistles growing in along the edges of the pastures or lavender chicory amongst the clover in the meadows. Each are an intricate brush that paints summer in the country.
