My very last session of the year was with my own family. It had been six years in the making but we finally did it. There is a multitude of reasons as to why it took so long. A photographer’s family is no different than a family that doesn’t have a photographer as a member. […]

New Year, New Portraits | Atlanta Child Photographer

First of all, let me apologize if you saw my previous story on Instagram. I stated that I would blog about my latest family portrait session. Yes, this post is about a family portrait session, just not my family. Because of time, lack of time and life, I was unable to edit the images from […]

Family Portrait Part Deux | Atlanta Child Photographer

Family portraits

It is just a few days before Christmas & I have yet to really do any Christmas shopping. You read that right. I. Haven’t. Even. Started. Why is that, you ask. I really hate shopping. That’s really it. I really hate shopping and Christmas shopping seems to exacerbate that hate. The reason is that Christmas […]

Just call me Last Minute Lucy | Atlanta Child Photographer

I’m tired. I’m so tired. This year has been something for the history books. First, it was an election year and I hate election years. Why, you ask. Because we are bombarded with campaign ads, usually negative ones. Then we get bombarded with campaign texts, calls and emails. I am so over it. And who […]

I’m Tired | Atlanta Child Photographer

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing one of my most favorite families. In fact, I photograph them every year for their annual Christmas cards. I believe I have been photographing them for about 11 years now. Out of those 11 years, there is only one time I did not photograph them but […]

Trying something new | Atlanta Photographer

Family portraits

This year has definitely been one for the books. Life has been upended by a virus that it seems we are still learning about. During this time, many of us have come to realize what is really important in our lives. Family has always been important to me but I must say, I may have […]

Thanksgiving during the age of COVID | Atlanta Child Photographer

If you’ve followed me for some time now and actually have a good memory, then you know what this time of year is. For those of you who don’t know, it’s my birthday time. My birthday was on Tuesday and every year I do a blog about my birthday or at least something I learned […]

Fail Forward | Atlanta Child Photographer

So, if you have been following me for a while, you know that I really dislike having my portrait taken. Yes, I know it’s ironic but it is what it is. I just don’t feel that I am very photogenic. My friends and family disagree but I feel that I look better in person. Even […]

Look who’s in front of my lens | Atlanta Child Photographer

If you follow me, you may have noticed that recently I advertised for Fall mini-sessions. These types of sessions are not my normal thing but I figured, hey, why not try it.  Well, let’s just say it was not a successful venture. People seemed interested in it and in my photography but I’m guessing that […]

Forever Acquiring Important Lessons | Atlanta Child Photographer

outdoor fall family portraits

Every now and again (actually this is only the 2nd time) I allow guest posts on my blog. Well, it is my blog and I do want to keep it in my voice, but there are times when I share my platform. This is especially true when someone has some good information to present. For […]
