Beautiful AyanaJanuary 10, 2015

So, I love shooting portraiture.  LOVE IT.  I love talking about color, location and how people want to represent themselves.  Photographing Ayana was so special.  She is an energy healer and she is a really beautiful spirit.   I  wanted to capture that.  We  talked a lot  about color and I wanted to capture her against the Spring blooms with her beautiful headdress on.  I love the way these came out.  If you are interested in energy healing, you can find out more about her work at:  www.ayanared.com.

 

Brent and Matt’s super fantastic amazing Maine weddingSeptember 29, 2014

 

The only word I can use to describe Brent and Matt’s wedding weekend in Camden, Maine, is magical.

I can honestly say it might be my favorite wedding I have ever photographed.  It wasn’t just the amazing location that took your breath away,

or the delicious Maine lobster at the lobster bake, or the unforgettable schooner ride on the oldest schooner still operating or the beautiful ceremony on the water….

Honestly, it was the friends and the family that made this one of my favorite.  Brent and Matt’s family and friends were just the best, most loving people. They made me feel like family too, and It really

touched me to be a part of this special time in their lives.  It is shoots like this that I feel very fortunate and honored to do what I do–This is one I will not soon forget:)

New Studio at the Goat Farm Art Center!!September 18, 2014

So I am super uber happy to announce that I have a new studio/work space over at the Goat Farm Art Center.  If you

have never been here, you should stop on by!!  That’s me in the top right of B-8!  The address for the complex is  Foster St NW,  Atlanta, 30318. To get there, drive North on Howell Mill through the West End, left at Huff Rd, left at Foster (first stop sign), drive to end of the road, right at the dead end sign. Building 8, Studio LR 2.Just walk on down that road, take the door on the left, up the stairs, take a left at the Cat, left at the Owl, left at the laughing child, and voila!  There I am:)  It is beautiful here and I feel very lucky to be part of the community here with tons of artists, studios, music, art, and…goats!  Call me if you are around or just stop by…I’m usually here during the week editing away!

5 tips to lose the selfie and get a gorgeous headshotAugust 19, 2014

Whether it’s for your professional identity, or for a dating profile, or just because you’ve decided you’d like to have a really great photo, having a professional headshot taken is a brilliant investment in yourself.

To get the best results, there are a couple of essentials. Trust me: these simple tips will make certain your headshot shows you at your best!

1. Spend a few minutes thinking about how you want to present yourself. If you’ll be using the shots for your business, think about the feel of your business and how you’d like clients to see you. This helps you work with the photographer to decide on the location – outdoors, indoors, at home, at your business, etc. – as well as the overall look and color scheme of the shoot. Letting your photographer know what kind of image you’re hoping to project, what story you’re trying to tell with the pictures, is critical to great shots.

2. Get your roots done and trim your nose hair!  Seriously. If there is ever a time to do hair and/or makeup, it’s right before getting headshots you’ll be using for a couple years! Spend the extra money on this if at all possible, unless you are expert-level at doing it yourself. Photoshop is ok for little tweaks, but do everything you can on the front end to look your “natural” best.

3. Choose a really good photographer.  Spend the money and work with someone whose work you like and who makes you feel comfortable and understood. This is an investment in yourself, remember?
