New: Artistic Photography shop and a Giveaway!!

Been enjoying photography for over a year now and the collection of images keeps growing and growing. This week I decided to submit a portfolio of my work to a company that sells images to major advertising graphic designers. What I hoped most of all was to get the unbiased and professional opinion. The company reviewed my portfolio and emailed me a day later saying that they would love to work with me.

It is exciting for sure, I enjoy photography and styling and its a diversion from the rest of what I do. I may focus on it more right now since I have my art studio all packed up and the only way I can get creative right now is through photography.

I had also been pondering with the idea that I should open a store and sell some of my past shots. After a lot of thinking and hmmmm, some procrastinating perhaps, I finished setting up my new etsy shop with my photography.

So here are the prints I have currently available. I will be adding more for sure so make sure to add the shop to your faves and stay tuned.




My latest shot would be "The Writer"...

Hi Sonia!

I LOVE "Gone Swimming"! It reminds me of the kind of sandals I wear in the summertime. I always have a favorite pair each year and I wear them so much that my niece's have given me a hard time about them and wondered if I had any other shoes LOL. I would so put this up in a beach room once we move to a bigger house. :) Good luck with your new Etsy shop!

Hey Sonia,
I am so impressed with anyone who can take good photos. I wish I had the patience to learn about the camera... your photos are fabulous! I have to say I am very partial to "Enchanted Forest" - First Landing State Park, VA... it's gorgeous!
Wishing you all the best, I have NO idea how you do all you do!
MUCH LOVE, Beth

Favorited your new Etsy shop and added you to my circle. My favorite piece is "The Writer". The vintage typewriter and ink did it for me! Very nice! So very much looking forward to your moving to VA. - Michelle
