Hello, I'm Maedbh... which is the Gaelic spelling for Maeve. I have been into photography since my early 20's when I owned a simple point-and-shoot canon camera that I brought with me pretty much everywhere I went. It wasn't until my grandmother gifted me my first DSLR - a Canon Rebel T3i during a time I couldn't possibly have afforded one myself - that I was finally able to begin learning and experimenting with photography as an art. Sadly, my grandmother passed away soon after gifting me the camera and I still think about her every time I take my camera out. She is very much a part of the work I do.
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, 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 in nature that otherwise 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.
My work is dedicated to Gloria and Joe.
