oh the fun of shooting children!

The funny thing about this industry is sometimes you can get a reputation without actually earning it. For instance, I am a mother of four beautiful girls. From the time that I found out I had my firstborn in my womb, I’ve owned a SLR and each of my wonderful children have been photographed more … Continue reading

In September 2010, I received a Flickr email from a guy named Oscar Ferrer. He had just gotten this business started of renting equipment to photographers and he was asking to bring a few pieces down to one of my South Atlanta Flickr meetings. I took two days to respond as I wasn’t sure about … Continue reading

shooting weddings. its all about the details

I think what separates some wedding photographers from others is definitely the eye for details.

Teaching a small group at a time allows me to make the workshops more affordable for most, compared to more expensive one-on-one sessions. In this short amount of time, I’ve hosted workshops … Continue reading

welcome home

welcome home. I was asked to come out a year ago and take photos of a sweet deployment ceremony in Auburn, AL and I was delighted that I was able to make it back for the welcome home ceremony. Much happier tears! 🙂

the holt update[dot com]

Yesterday, I was able to go and spend the day with Lilla & Rebekah (Bekah to us) and take a few photos. Who am I kidding, I took a ton of photos! What was wonderfully special about this shoot was that everything had some sentimental value.
