Vintage Memories to Inspire Tomorrow's Dreams
Travel photography has always been where my passion lies, and Journey's Eye Photography was born out of a desire to share that passion with others. Taking travel photographs means looking through my lens and seeing the world as pieces of art - with its colors, people, history and cultures blending together to capture the essence of a place. I love making this big world a little smaller by getting to know its places and people and introducing them to others.
My love affair with photography began when I was a young girl and would trail behind my father as he photographed nature scenes on our family travels. I would be right beside him "taking" pictures with my fake camera. I eventually studied photography in America and London, England and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Photography. I have since spent my career in the photography and design fields.
To celebrate the world and help make it better in the process, a portion of each sale from Journey's Eye Photography will go towards helping those in need.
I hope my photographs bring you joy as they remind you of the places you love or long to be!

Professional Printing Lab
Items from Journey's Eye are printed by a professional printing lab that caters only to professional photographers. This ensures premium quality on all items.
Everything that you see here is my own work and expression. Images are captured and digitally processed by me, printed by a professional lab, signed on the back, and lovingly packaged and shipped to you.
→ A portion of all proceeds from my shop sales will be donated to my local homeless shelter (www.peoriarescue.org) or to Living Water International (www.water.cc) to help give water to those without.
If you have any questions at all or are interested in a custom order, please drop me a note at journeyseye[at]hotmail.com or by etsy conversation.
My prints are professionally printed on archival-quality matte or metallic paper that will last a lifetime.
Available paper types include:
→ Luster Matte - Professional non-glossy matte finish that keeps accurate color, realistic saturation and has standard archival value of 100 years in home display.
→ Metallic - Unique metallic, glossy surface that gives a distinct three-dimensional appearance with a standard archival value of 100 years in home display (This is my favorite paper-type and really makes the color and detail of the image pop)
*All listed photographs will be printed on luster matte paper unless metallic finish is requested by message or custom order.
