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

Beautiful Girl... My Melody..

Almost all of my best blessings have come from something that started with my love for my children. This business started because other people saw images I was taking of my kids and began to ask me to take them of their kids. Well, my motherhood journey all started with this face :) I always say she is the reason I love children so much !!! I was one of those awful teenagers who didn't really like kids that much. I didn't even babysit. Once I became Melody's momma my whole world changed ! Not only did I absolutely adore her but I really loved other people's children too... I can't explain it ! After Melody I was nearly addicted to little people ! Which explains why I went on to have four more precious children. Look how my beautiful girl is now a woman... She has been joy for me the whole journey long and now I get to enjoy her friendship in a way that isn't possible until your kids are grown. All of you out there with tiny people they grow up and it isn't all bad.. Today was too much fun ! A second day with a photo shoot with another beautiful daughter. Melody needed updated headshots and some images that showed some movement. We decided to go to one of my favorite hilltops and she just jumped around :) I think I like those the most from today becuase they are soooooo her !

A Fairy Tale..

Once upon a time a beautiful girl named Ellie lived in a little house with a big bright window. Every day she would look out at the river and long to dip her toes in the cool water. Time passed, and the river remained so bright and clear under the window that Ellie couldn't stand it! Her mind filled up with the thought of escaping, and she suddenly discovered she had wings to fly. Out over the green grass she floated, coming to rest in the brook she had always longed to visit. She became the fairy of the river, protecting its waters and welcoming all the pilgrims who came to hear the rushing sound of the river, drink the icy waters , and find a soft place to rest. The end :)

I thought I would give you a tiny look at how her belly got so beautiful !

Elton Patrick is coming soon..

This is Adrienne and Brandon. She is my sister Becky's second child and I have loved her since she was born... Isn't she absolutely beyond beautiful ? I don't know when I have seen her look more beautiful. During the family gathering we decided to do her maternity session and we had so much fun !!! Brandon is a great guy and YOU should all go hear him sing and play guitar. HE is AWESOME ! When we were taking pictures of just her he played the whole time and I want to take him to every session and have that for my working soundtrack :) !! I LOVE YOU BOTH !! I can not wait to meet Elton Patrick !!!
