Being in the wilderness has always been an instant form of meditation for me. My childhood home backed up to an enormous old growth forest where I would walk my dog everyday after school. This effortless meditation started during these walks. Spending time in the woods became a way for me to let go of any stresses of the day.
As I got older and entered high school, life got busy and I found myself craving those moments alone in nature. I took up photography as a way to prioritize that time again. I was surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Kodiak Island and once I started capturing it I realized I could bring my treasured moments of quiet meditation into my everyday life. I decorated my bedroom with my photos so that when I didn't have time to go outside I could find those tranquil feelings from my home.
Years later, when I started Griffing Designs, LLC I realized I could share the calming feelings that nature brings me through selling my photography prints and photo products. I set a positive and peaceful intention with every photo I take in hopes that this energy is transferred to my customers. My photo products allow you to bring my nature meditations into your every day life by using practical items featuring my photography. If you have a particular location or photo that brings you peace I would love to work with you on a custom order.
