Hobby Photographer and Fusion Belly dance costume designer

Founder and Sole Owner of Synari Designs (custom fusion belly dance) costume designs.
See link below for my website store for custom orders.


I am a big fan of photography which portrays the subject naturally and a huge fan of unique handmade crafts.

ALL MY WORK IS COPYRIGHTED.
Copy/self claim or sale/redistribution is not allowed by law.
I do NOT mind, however, if my photographic works are used as stock for art manipulations as long as a link to the original and credit is given to me. I also do not mind if they are saved and kept for personal use...i.e. screensavers or desktop backgrounds on one's pc.


I am disabled due to MSIDS (multiple chronic issues). Despite not being able to work, I am fortunate enough to have the time to rediscover a profound joy in photography that has since reaffirmed my appreciation for even the smallest things in life. Beauty can be found everywhere around us; we just have to be willing to see it. Photography helps me work thru the daily pain and fatigue while constantly reminding me life has so much worth living for.

BIG Thanks to all of you that FAV my works as well as those that add me to their Deviant Watch lists. I appreciate and encourage critique of my work.

Today I got the whole whitetail doe and fawn residents sorta out. For those following my journals, about a month or so back I got to photograph a fawn that I thought ended up being lost and separated from its' mother (Notch, see below.) I take the time to get to know my resident animals; we have 2 whitetail does that frequently visit the vacant field next to my home. One I affectionately call grandma and the other, daughter. Last year grandma had a set of fawns; one was male, the other female (daughter). This year it seems, grandma and daughter are both bringing their fawns to the field. Though I am having trouble distinguishing grandma from daughter (telling which one is older); one has 2 fawns (the doe that has no dark facial nose bridge) and the other (missing hair on face and has dark nose bridge), 1 fawn. The single fawn is much bigger than the twin set and it has a distinctive notch/bend in one ear. (I'm calling he/she Notch for a name). Notch looks quite healthy despite how ragged its mom looks (missing hair on the face and neck). Notch, however is already grazing actively and seems in better body condition than the smaller twins.

For weeks I worried over Notch's stressful separation from his/her mom. It's such a relief to know Notch is still alive and doing well. And likely if something happened to its' mother, would be adopted by the other doe. I wish like hell I could identify which doe is grandma and which is daughter. I'm thinking grandma is the healthier looking doe; the mother to the twins and with a more reddish coat and not missing any hair. I am leaning towards this because from an earlier image taken late last year of grandma with daughter and son, she has a nick/chunk missing on part of her upper left ear. This concludes me to believe that the more ragged looking doe is daughter (it also makes sense that daughter would only have 1 fawn as her first and that due to experience and age, grandma would look healthier and be more capable of bearing and caring for twins.   Tonight both grandma, daughter, Notch and twins were in the field together grazing! I was so stoked to see them as a family unit and know that they are looking out for one another as families should do.
