Phototrophic Field Guide is Violeta Garcia-Mendoza’s blog. It serves as her occasional nature journal, photographic essay-in-progress…and virtual reminder to turn toward the light and grow.

Violeta is a city-born, suburban-raised, wild-imaginationed writer, photographer, mother, daughter, wife, friend-of-creatures-great-and-small…who is rarely found without a book, a camera, and a pack of dogs trailing behind her.

You can find more of her writing and photography at violetagarciamendoza.com. You can also find her on IG and on Goodreads.
