Patty, of beautifulflowerpictures.com, is a Bethesda based fine art floral photographer. She finds peace and beauty in the natural world. Whether she is photographing a bed of tulips at a local botanical garden or a wildflower in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, she seeks to capture the simple beauty of a flower to share with you.
Patty also photographs flowers in her studio, something she didn’t think she would ever do. She finds that photographing flowers in the studio allows her to capture details in the flowers that she was never able to share before.
After getting a Master’s Degrees in Public Policy and History and working for several years as a grassroots activist, in 2002, Patty acquired a new digital camera and rediscovered her love of photography. For Patty, the flexibility and freedom of digital photography means she can finally create the photographs she has always envisioned.
