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

Katie and Jud got married :) {Atlanta Wedding Photographer }

Katie and Jud got married. I took so many pictures and I have been editing non stop since the wedding. Forgive me for getting this sneek peek up so late. I have been having a really hard time narrowing down the images to tell the mini story for the blog. I enjoyed the people invloved in this wedding so much !!!!! The groomsmen were the most fun ever ! It was completely their idea to spin the tires on the red truck and I JUST LOVE THAT SHOT! They were all sooo much fun ! This job is such a blessing to me. I love hanging out with awesome people on important days ! I have many more weddings coming up this summer and fall :) I could never have imagined this journey. I am so thankful for so many things and about 30 times a day I pinch myself and say thank you prayers that it is ME living my life :)

I was blessed again to have my friend Jeff Rease shoot with me on this wedding as well as my forever best assistant MY Maggie :)
