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

shhhh, it's kind of a secret...

My birthday is in two weeks ... Dec 19th.... Yes, I was the kid that ran around telling everyone it was my birthday :) I thought I would tell you all two weeks early and maybe you can email me or leave me a comment on my birthday !! The month of December brings a lot of reflection for me every year. What were the lessons learned over the past year. I am really trying to learn from the mistakes and soak up the good things and be thankful. Personally I have had a very difficult few years... A huge mistake that has had lasting consequences and finding my gifts in a way I probably would never have experienced without the mistake. I have a passion for this job that even surprises me :) I have found my own voice and how I want to express it and I feel soooo free when I use my camera and it is sooo wonderful ! I have the opportunity to bring joy to people I don't even know :) I can watch and appreciate the way you all love your families and that is a gift .... My love life is my children and my work. I am so thankful that God has been gracious to give me people to love and work to do... One day, maybe even for me, there could be more.. until then I am grateful and content for my connections to the planet... my kids and my connection to you... my heart and my camera...

I will let you know what I decide to do on my birthday. Maybe I will bring along my camera :) I can tell you, if I can round up all of my kids it will be somehting that includes seeing their beautiful faces.

I am so inspired by how you have poured yourself into your work. I sometimes feel like I know the families you photograph because of the emotion and relationship you capture among them. You are blessed with a great talent and though it has been difficult, you have found something so valuable amongst the angst. Isn't God cool that way??!!

I will be out of town most the month, so H-B'Day early! I enjoy your blog for its artistic quality and warmth. I tell myself all the time I should put down my paint brushes/charcoal and go for photography, I enjoy the spontaneity more. I have a birthday this month, too, maybe one day we can meet, we could have a good conversation.
