As I mentioned in a previous post, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. My celebration has nothing to do with pilgrims but everything to do with my family and the food, of course. To me, Thanksgiving means giving thanks for all of the wonderful people in your life, not some sugar-coated history lesson. Even though I […]

It’s almost turkey day | atlanta child photographer

This past Sunday was my 52nd birthday. It was a great day. I got a chance to sleep in. Then, my husband not only cooked a wonderful breakfast, but he also made some delicious homemade chicken pot pie. Woohoo! To top it off, I didn’t do a darn thing! I just laid around relaxing all […]

Another Year, Another Lesson | Atlanta Child Photographer

So, this past weekend I had a fall family portrait session at Bess Walker park in Avondale Estates. I didn’t even know this park existed until Lauren, my client, told me about it. You see, I met Lauren a few weeks ago. I was on my way home, going the back way instead of via […]

Fall Photos | Atlanta Child Photographer

My favorite time of year comes in November. Why, you ask? Because first off, it’s my birthday month and secondly because my favorite holiday is in this month. I absolutely love Thanksgiving. What do I love about Thanksgiving? Well, to be totally honest, I am definitely not celebrating the pilgrims or how they treated Native […]

November Is My Month | Atlanta Child Photographer

When I entitled this post, I was thinking about the Jamaican Dance Hall Artist, Sean Paul and his single, Gimme the Light. If you’re not familiar and want to be, you can check it out here. Anyway, every week I wonder, hmmmmm…what will I write about? Light! Light is the basis of photography. You can’t […]

Just Gimme Da Light | atlanta child photographer

Being a child photographer can be very challenging. If you anything about babies and young children, you know this to be true. And the thing about it is that it’s not even that the child is unruly. I can honestly say that I haven’t had to deal with unruly children, well, except for one, many […]

Please Smile | atlanta child photographer

So, I had such a wonderful week and weekend. Not that I don’t normally enjoy my weeks and weekends, but it’s always nice to have a change of pace. If you read my blog last week, you know that I participated in an artist’s reception on Monday. If not, I’ll give you a quick synopsis […]

Atlanta Celebrates Photography With Us | Atlanta Child Photographer

If you’ve been following me and my blog, you know I have a best friend who I’ve had since high school. We met in 1982 when I was in 10th grade and Alvia was in 9th. Funny thing is, I believe I met her through her then-boyfriend. At the time, he was in my grade […]

A Picture Perfect Gift | atlanta portrait photographer

Have you ever said or heard someone say, “Wow, that’s a great picture! I bet you have an awesome camera!” or something to that effect? That’s like telling a chef, “That creme brulee was delicious! I bet you’ve got an awesome stove!” I don’t know about you but that’s rather naive and somewhat insulting. The […]
