etsy of the day: photography by jennifer squires

i'm pretty particular when it comes to art photography, since my hubs is a pro photographer. but when jennifer squires sent her work over for me to check out, i instantly loved her work. jennifer says her work presents "simplicty and meaning in the beauty of the everyday," and that says it better than i ever could. she does a great job of taking everyday subjects and using unique perspectives to make you take a second (or a third) look.

her nature photos make me instantly relaxed and peaceful - a tough thing to do this week. i especially love the tree in winter and february blues prints.

and i love the kitchen-themed photos...particularly for an inexplicable reason, the portrait of a sandwich, which i think would be adorable framed in a kitchen. or perhaps a triptych of beans, rice and peppercorns, or something along those lines.

her work is incredibly affordable - signed prints will run you about $45 for an 8x8 to 8x10 size. even better, for my lovely SMC readers, jennifer is offering an exclusive 25% discount with code CARDIO, but only through the end of this month. so, pick your faves, and snap them up via jennifer's etsy shop. just quote the code in the "comments to seller" section when you order, and she'll refund the difference once you've submitted payment.
