seashell photography

The first time I found a seashell on the beach (when I was in Pensacola, Florida!) was quite exciting for me. Of course, I'd seen plenty of seashells before, but I'd never found any myself. Beachcombing quickly became my new favorite hobby. On that trip I walked along many beaches and collected many pretty things. I hardly found any that weren't broken, but I couldn't bring myself to toss back so many of the small pieces because they were just so beautiful, even in their damaged state.

Since I live in the Midwest, shelling is something I seldom get the chance to do. When I get home from my trips to far away beaches, I have so much fun laying out and identifying my finds. I love looking through my shell book anyways, fantasizing about how wonderful it would be to stumble upon some of the rare beauties. Nature is soooo crazy, you guys!

My shells have been boxed up for a while (so many moves!), but the other day I decided to take them out and admire them. This led to a new photo series that I am soooo into at the moment. I love being able to share the beauty of my collection, especially the broken ones. Aren't they gorgeous?

These photos and more are available as prints (and pillows, phone cases, tote bags, ect.) in my Society6 shop!

The seashells in your seashell collection are pretty. I'm sure you have some happy memories from when you found them. There is something very soothing about being near the water, and the memories of the warm locales must be nice in the winter.
I hope you have a fabulous season and happy year 2016!
