Fine Art Nature Photography by RebeccaBarray on Etsy

wet leaf-2Hello!

I opened up an Etsy store with some of my photography. I started with 10 of my favorite images, available in 18×12 poster size print, 8×10 photo print, 11×14 canvas, and a set of 20 5×7 flat cards with envelopes. Go check it out. If there’s an image of mine that you’d like to buy, but don’t see it there on Etsy, just let me know and I can add it. Thanks for your support!!

A Photo-Chapbook!


In February, a dear friend of mine and fellow Wordsmith, Khara House, hosted a Chapbook Challenge. I don’t write poetry (much) and gathering my flash fiction was a little intimidating, so I decided to to make a photo-chapbook. It was a great motivator for me! And came with a fantastic result! I hope you’ll check it out.


Nature: Reflections of Our Lives, Photography by Rebecca Barray


Artist’s Statement

“Nature: Reflections of Our Lives” is a collection of nature photographs depicting the milestones of our lives. This work contains photographs of nature, symbolizing events from our lives, such as birth, love, betrayal, passion, and old age. It opens with a landscape of the sunrise and a seed sprouting from the soil. It closes with a fall forest scene and the night sky. The middle contains  images of the world around us that represent common life events.

She spends most of her time chasing toddlers, but her precious free time is spent writing, photographing, and learning as much as she can about anything.
