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

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

I don’t know about you, but 2020 has been kicking my butt. Recently, I saw a meme on Instagram that was funny and very accurate. Man, I’ve seen some stuff this year that I didn’t think I’d ever see in person. It’s like history is repeating itself and we are all getting an education and […]

Opening new doors | Atlanta Child Photographer

We all know how important it is to be knowledgable in any profession. Some people will try to fake it until they make but that’s not always successful. There have been a few sessions where things didn’t go exactly how I had planned them but because I knew what I was doing, I was able […]

The importance of knowledge | Atlanta Child Photographer

Is the competition real? Ok, you might be looking at my question and think, “What the heck is she talking about? Is she for real?” Since I only have so much space for a title, I couldn’t be as nuanced about this week’s subject. The short answer is yes. Competition is real but the long […]

Let Me Clear My Throat | Atlanta Child Photographer

Yep, it’s a new day and another week! Perhaps we aren’t where we want to be or doing what we want to do but we are here. Because we are here, I suggest we make the most of it. Since the shelter in place started, I’ve been spending more time with my family. Prior to […]

It’s a new day | atlanta child photographer

It’s always darkest before the down. It’ll get worse before it gets better. Nothing lasts forever. Tough times never last but tough people do. Fall seven times, stand up eight. And the sayings go on and on. We’ve all heard them. Sometimes, just when you think it can’t get any worse, it somehow does. How? […]

It will get better | Atlanta Child Photographer

Gee, how long has it been now? Are we on week three or week four? I just checked my calendar and this is week three. It is so easy to lose track of time when you don’t have anywhere to be. If I know what day of the week it is, then I’m doing really […]

All about comfort zones | Atlanta Child Photographer

As often happens, I am at a loss as to what to write for my weekly blog. Fortunately, my blog is only weekly because if I had to do it more frequently I would be writing a whole bunch of nothing. I just can’t think of that many things to write about that would be […]
