Dear Lord of the Perfect Edit, Help Me!

I’m not quite sure how i’m supposed to edit these 300 photos in front of me from Wolf Haven down to 20. I love every one of these images I shot this past year and I edited this list down from like 5 million, so please God, grant me the power to make an amazing edit and know which images to delete that are only lovely and perfect to me and not to the rest of the world!!!!!! The Getty Images Grant For Good Program is waiting for them, and i’m terribly off schedule…..

Wolf Haven

Exciting news that my Getty Grant For Good is successfully transferred to Wolf Haven. They are doing incredible re-introduction work including the highly endangered Red Wolf and Mexican Gray. I will be working alongside an incredible woman named Wendy who truly speaks to the wolves. I will also be accompanied by some very good friends in sleek black coats who love to talk and live in the trees above the wolves, i’m so excited!

New Mexico

I did this shoot for Outside last year, a real dream job and dreamy spot near Santa Fe, NM…….thinking of mystical places and how certain ones have made me feel in the past. Here, the light was so perfect and the heat was almost unbearable, I was 6 months pregnant and so very tired in that weather coming from misty Seattle. After we heard the stories of the Natives and how they had lived in that house and buried their young inside the walls and then Davey and I getting caught in the lightning storm heading back to our hotel in the dark, driving through the mountains, I just have to think of how hard life was before now and how humans used their keen senses to live much more than they do now and how interesting it all is. I’m reading The Golden Spruce, and all the talk of how life is without humans in it, and what happens in the forest with all the animals and flora and fauna, and oh it is so incredible and unbelievable and beautiful. After no sleep in two days, my mind really starts to go, it’s actually kind of great. There is just so much happening while we go grocery shopping, like birds who swim 100 miles an hour under the ocean then land in the trees to nest, that kind of stuff.

More images from life lately………

New Work…………

New projects and great news that I will be working at Wolf Haven to continue my grant from 4Culture last year on For The Innocent. My new personal work consists of creating dioramas of birds and little creatures in my backyard while Maggie Scout sleeps is my new love, it’s an interesting process which i’m only at the beginning of but it’s amazing, it forces me to be calm and meditate on everything that is happening to me lately while I watch and wait for my birds to come in front of my lens, of course the birds look fake because of the backdrop and the lighting but that’s the greatest part, they aren’t! On tuesday, the yard was misty all the way up to the tall pine tree and sun was gleaming through, I heard a deep call and looked up to see two great blue herons soaring above together, ahhhhh so nice to be working again.
