about me


My parents named me Rose Mary, but, for a lot of reasons, I prefer "Rosie".


I have had several careers in my life (bookkeeper, wife, mother, photographer, educator) but it seems as though each step I took in life led me to the place where I would learn exactly what I needed to know to take the next logical step in my journey.


Along the way, I have learned some valuable lessons and developed a "mentorship" mentality. This website is a place I have created to share my knowledge and experience as a professional photographer and it is my hope that you will enjoy what I share and learn from it.

why flowers?


I started out my photographic career as a photo-journalist and nature photographer. As my family grew, I gravitated towards child and family photography and then weddings. Eventually both of my daughters joined my husband and I in the wedding photography business.


When it was time for my husband and I to leave the northeast, I realized that my time as a wedding photographer was complete and I decided to go back to one of my first photographic love - nature.


It wasn't too long before I found flowers and became hopelessly captivated by their glorious beauty. From there, it was a natural progression to photograph and then digitally paint my flower portraits in Photoshop.
