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

He makes ME smile...

I have been so grateful to so many of you out there who have been a constant source of encouragement to me personally and to my photography journey :) I thought I would share a face with you all that has been bringing me more than my share of smiles... his name is Robert. I spend a ton of time taking pictures for other people and I convinced Robert to let me take some pictures (ok a ton of pictures ) just for me. This has been such a sweet session to edit for me. Editing a session usually takes hours and I spend tons of time looking at the faces of the people I shoot. This has been hours of looking at a face that always makes me laugh and smile for all the right reasons :) If you could hear him sing.... or tell a story... or pray.... or laugh... or watch him with the people he loves you would understand. I am so blessed to have such a good man in my life. I want to share all the good stuff with you all too and I want you all to say awesome prayers of Thank you for me :) THIS is such a sweet chapter of my life !!!!!!!!

I asked Robert to take me to a hill top.. I just wanted to see some sky. Look at this view !!!! I don't think I could get myself here again without him but isn't this view awesome ?? The clouds and sky and light were just perfect and the subject was pretty great too ! It is great to be me :)

It had gotten dark and Robert had a brilliant idea of using the lights on the jeep for a few more. I didn't even bring my flash with us. All of these were taken with available natural light and the next few were taken with the headlights of the jeep :) I will definitely do the Jeep headlight thing again.

I used my Canon 5D Mark II and my Canon 24-70mm 2.8 lens. My life just keeps getting better :)

Even though your blog viewers may not have met Robert ... his personality clearly comes shinning through! Your images capture all he gives of himself, and the importance of Robert in your life. So happy for you both. We need more people like this is the world!! ENJOY each other!
