In Memory of My Grandfather

Life changes in an instant, for better or for worse… My grandfather was alive and well this time last week as he drove himself to the dermatologist. He spent the evening at home, content dinning on left-overs and enjoying an Hallmark movie with his grand daughter and her eldest daughter.. That evening they kissed good-bye,...

WIN Professional Photography for a small business!

Do you know a small business that would benefit from a personal branding session with a professional photographer? Well, here’s YOUR chance to help a local business! We all know 2020 was a difficult year. More than 400,000 businesses closed their doors nationwide!? I’m astounded when I hear that number- And it reminds me how...

Valentine’s Day, A Short History

My grandparents were married on Valentines Day in 1947 long before it was the ‘cool’ thing to do. They remained committed to one another until her death in 2019. That kind of commitment today is rare. Valentines Day always reminds me of their commitment to one another. But it’s also a reminder I still haven’t...

Covid Kills… Indiscriminately

While inspiration and insight are typically my jam… there are days where my thoughts are dark and deep. A man named George died this morning. Today I’ve been stumped by this thought: Covid kills, indiscriminately… without malice, reason, or judgement. At the end of the day, we’ll once again hear the numbers of deaths resulting...

Mastering On-Camera Interviews

The first job interview I had after college was with an up and coming advertising company in Atlanta. I wasn’t qualified for the job but my cover letter got their attention and I was asked for an in-person interview. I spent a week getting ready, rehearsing my lines and practicing in front of the mirror....

Newborn Photography; Tricks of the Trade

Newborns actually can NOT support their heads by themselves. Their neck muscles develop over time so those images are manufactured in Photoshop. While PhotoShop can creates...

Preparing for your Newborn Photography

You ask? How do I prepare when I’ve never had a newborn photography session? ‘Oh no.. it’s happening!’ The new mom exclaims frantically as she uses her hand to shield mustard yellow poop from running onto my spotless, ivory couch.  It’s only spotless because it frequently gets cleaned by me & my good friend Oxy-Clean. ...

Art of Photographing Children

Half-way through, she told me how she’d thought about canceling.. or pushing back her family photo session. ‘It never feels like the ‘right’ time? Ya know?’ You want to feel ‘less-frumpy’ and less like the ‘work-from-home-I’ve-gained-a-few-pounds-since-quarantine– look. Trust me, I understand! My first session back since quarantine, provided every reminder of why I tell stories....

Mother’s Day FREE Printables

My love language is acts of service… Words of affirmation are important to me as well but there is nothing better than a little extra help when I’m not expecting it. But my daughter is nine and ‘cleaning up after herself’ is a hard won battle. But you wanna know something?! Lately my daughter is...
