Overland Park Art Show
Orange Cat Co Photography was a featured artist at the Overland Park Art Show this past weekend! We braved the wind and 90 degree heat for two days, and I learned a lot about art shows and how to move forward with my landscape photography in the future. Overall, I am happy to report that Orange Cat Co Photography's first art show was a resounding success!
If you missed Orange Cat Co Photography at the Overland Park Art Show and would like to see my work, stop in at Shop Small Saturday on September 3rd at the Brew Ha Ha Coffee House in Overland Park. Orange Cat Co Photography will be there!
Vendor Fair Bound!
I am very happy to announce that Orange Cat Co Photography will participating in it's first vendor fair on Sunday, October 31st at MIC Nutrition in Independence, MO. I will be selling matted prints of my landscape portraits, as well as gift certificates and photography sessions. If all goes well, I will be offering larger prints and possibly canvases in the near future.
If you are in the Independence area, please stop in for the opportunity to support a variety of local small businesses, and while you are there, feel free to stop by the table with the orange table cloth to say hello!
And just like that, it's time to put away our bathing suits and pull out the hoodies. Fall is here! We turned of our air conditioning a couple of day ago, opting for open windows to welcome in the cool autumn air. Soon the leaves will start to change, providing a beautiful backdrop for family portraits!
I am currently mostly booked for October and now booking for November/ December. If you schedule your photography session for before November 15th, your digital portraits will be ready in time to order holiday cards. Framed family portraits and canvases also make wonderful holiday gifts.
I dodged a couple midwestern thunderstorms for a family portrait session on a family farm in rural Missouri. It was such a beautiful backdrop with stone walls, old farm buildings, a corn field and a tractor. Unfortunately, our session had to be cut short by the arrival of another round of thunderstorms.
A Beautiful Backdrop
Yesterday's photography session had an absolutely spectacular backdrop, and the clouds even thinned out a bit to give us a peak of blue. Kansas City is such a beautiful city, I am so happy to be able to call home!
This past Saturday, I went on a small adventure to the White Mountains. I drove through North Conway, and visited a couple mountain villages. I drove the Kancamagus Highway just in time for the blue hour, and was rewarded with fluffy white clouds, gorgeous scenery, cool mountain air, and lupines!
It has always been a goal of mine to have my photography displayed in a local coffee shop. Today I inched my forward a few steps. My Landscape Photography will now be available for sale through PicFair, with option to purchase prints or digital files. This also makes my work available for businesses to use in various media. The website is moderated, so it make take a couple of days for images to become available. Images will be added as I have a chance to edit them.
Acadia National Park will always hold a special place in my heart. My family has been traveling to Mount Desert Island as a summertime camping destination since I was an infant. When it was time to decide on a weekend getaway destination to celebrate our anniversary weekend, Acadia was an easy first choice. We stayed in a cozy ocean side cottage, the first day we went on a whale watch and saw porpoises, puffins, and a pair of humpback whales. The second day we explored the park loop road and enjoyed a fog bank that constantly changed our view. We ended the second day on top of Cadillac Mountain to watch a spectacular sunset. It was the perfect way to bid farewell to summer.
