About Me

My photo
I believe that treasuring the people in our life not only helps the people in our life but helps US. It is so easy to get so caught up in the daily routine of life that we forget the best gifts are the people that live with us. I want to use my camera and vision to show you what you have in the connections to the people you love. It is the greatest treasure we have in this life. When a mom can see how her children listen to her and respond to her she knows her daily energy into her family is building people. When a man can see that the best life has to offer him is in his own house that is a beautiful thing. It is something I can do. I want to be a blessing and that is what heals me ! I love this job ! I truly believe families can be glued together with one really special photograph. It is such a cool thing to walk into a family feel the dynamics that are unique to their special relationships and translate that into a hard copy image. Sometimes we need to have a real image in our hand of what we hope with our heart is true. I want to do that for you ! I am a proud member of the professional photographers association 770.547.1018

I took the following entry from my Good Friend Julie Monacello's blog talking about some thing very exciting for two of my pixel chick friends !!! Alli and Julie's images are being featured on the cover !!!! Both are such amazing talents and I am so blessed to have my amazing photographer girl friends... These women are not only so skilled with their state of the art equipment but they are kind, loving, helpful, loyal good friends... I LOVE my Pixel Chicks and I am sooooo proud to be one of them :) We talk everyday online . We Critique eachothers work... We learn new skills.. We sharpen eachother...and support eachother thru the everyday struggle of life.. We know whose kids had a good day at school and who had an awesome session that week.. We cover a ton of ground and I truly feel God placed them all in my life for a reason. Alli, Julie, Hayley,Laura, Candy,Sherry, Ali,Megan, Denise .... I LOVE YOU !!! I am proud of all of you ! I need to give you all more of my blog time.. This was so special I had to share it ! Enjoy what Julie had to say below..

Many of you know that this spring a few of my images were selected for publication in Jim Miotke's new book. We were also told that in publishing, nothing is certain until the book hits the shelves. So, I'd have to wait until September to see what images actually made the cut.

Yesterday, on a whim, I checked amazon. It's still not published, but they're taking pre-orders. When the cover image popped up, I dropped my jaw. There is my image, "Nummy". The cutest baby with his fingers in his mouth, right there! I couldn't even speak. I was shaking with excitement. So much so that I was worried that I'd have shaky hands for my photo session in an hour!

It was double excitement because the photo to the right of mine was created by my good friend Alli Gaulin! I was so excited that I could hardly even find my phone, and dial, to call her. Unfortunately, I got her voicemail, and I couldn't even speak to leave a message.

Of all the tens of thousands of images that the editors and Jim see at betterphoto.com, what are the odds that both of our images make the cover? Amazing.
