On Facebook and Instagram, I follow several doulas and know several in real life. I also know many mothers. The thing we all have in common, aside from being women, is that we have our own birth stories. For years, I’ve mentioned bits and pieces about my son and how my experience was surrounding his […]

My birth story, part I | Atlanta Child Photographer

Normally, I don’t talk about things like this but I felt compelled today. On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin, the police officer who murdered George Floyd was found guilty of all charges. I didn’t watch or listen to the trial everyday but I did get summations from NPR throughout the week. Trying to listen to that would […]

Do Black lives finally matter? | Atlanta Child Photographer

It’s that time again! Spring break! Woohoo! You would think that I’m still in school with my reaction. Even though I am not, I feel as though I am. My son is a sophomore in high school and he is still doing virtual learning. When I say that it is stressing me out, I am […]

Who’s ready for spring break? | Atlanta Child Photographer

Hey….psssst! Do you know that Mother’s Day is just around the corner? Yes, I said Mother’s Day. I know it’s only March but Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. I know it always sneaks up on me. Normally, I take my mom to her favorite restaurant, Lettuce Souprise You but being that […]

It’s never too early for mom | Atlanta Child Photographer

Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Did you survive? Did you enjoy yourself? Are you glad that it’s over? Are you sad that it’s over? Personally, I have no opinion on the matter. I’ve never really been into Valentine’s Day. To me, it was just a day to sell greeting cards, create specials and […]

Just Another Day | Atlanta Child Photographer

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

Fail Forward | Atlanta Child Photographer

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 […]

Yes, believe it or not, this Friday it will be 21 years that I’ve been married to the same person. We’ve actually been together for 26 years in total but 21 of those were as husband and wife. I must admit, it has definitely been a long time but feels like it sped by. We […]

Here’s to twenty-one years of us | Atlanta Child Photographer

Ok, I know what you’re thinking. You think that I am a member of the Beyhive & that I’m a huge fan of Beyoncé’s but I’m not. I like some of her music and I really enjoyed her when she was with Destiny’s Child. We might own one of her CDs but I’m not really […]
