I feel the same way about Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. If you love and appreciate someone, this […]

Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful family. Not only are they beautiful but they are friends of my family. Years ago before my husband and I had our son, my husband decided to volunteer for Big Brothers, Big Sisters. I guess it was like a trial run to see what it would […]

Ok, here is the final installment of my birth/pregnancy story. I was hoping to finish it in the month of May which is my son’s birth month but evidently, I had too much to say. Well, either I had too much to say or I was just too verbose and stretched it out. Either way, […]

My birth Story, Part II – Atlanta Child and Baby Photographer

If you are familiar with my work or have been following me for a while, you probably already know that I am predominantly a child photographer.
