Hello, I'm Maedbh... which is the Gaelic spelling for "Maeve". Throughout my life I have loved all forms of art but have especially been enamored with photography. I enjoy the challenge of forming a piece of art out of a fraction of a second - especially with regards to wildlife photography - where I often find myself at the mercy of the natural environment and the unpredictability of my subjects. 

Originally from the state of New York, I received my Bachelor's in biology from SUNY Geneseo, then went on to cultivate my love of invertebrates, birds and horticulture while working as curator for a butterfly house in upstate NY for 7 years. I then moved to the island of Grenada while working towards my DVM at St. George's University (where I acquired 2 island dogs), then found myself in Louisiana where I completed my DVM at the LSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital and met my husband, Chris.

 

In essence, I use my photography to capture moments that would have been lost in the continuous passing of time. I hope you enjoy my end results as much as I enjoy the process of making them. 

I currently use a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 18-250mm, a Sigma 105mm Macro and Nikkor 200-500mm lenses for wildlife and a Nikon 50mm for portraits.

My work is dedicated to Gloria and Joe, whose absence reminds me to live with the light and love they left behind.
