This weekend I had my fellow photog friends Julie Harnage and Melissa Holcomb up to the gorgeous mountains of Cashiers, NC for a maternity shootout extravaganza!  We had such a great time and got some incredible shots…..I must say…..Julie did an amazing job modeling for us!

I think this one is my favorite so far….





We got a little silly in the field of daisies just outside of downtown Cashiers, NC….



You wouldn’t believe what a few photographers will do for a cool background shot…..we waded into the Ocoee River at up to about waist level with our cameras held over our heads across slippery rocks for this one!




Here’s a few behind the scenes pics from Melissa…..3584828666_29b6a00153_b



Here are a few more that the talented Melissa took!





One last behind the scenes picture from Julie’s husband…..thanks for being such a trooper Matt!  You’re lucky you escaped the girls photo weekend without us doing your hair or painting your toenails!!!



Also- fellow photographers….go check out Natalie Norton’s blog to register to win a new Camera Strap from Phat Strap!  Natalie is a wonderful photographer based out of Hawaii and has a great blog that is one of my favorites!

I’d like to thank Marc Turnley for dragging me on the other side of the camera for once and capturing this shot last night……I have very few pictures of myself with a camera in hand and I love this one!  It cracks me up that you can see the mud all over my jeans from laying on my stomach in the road for this shoot (no worries…..it was blocked off from oncoming traffic) .

The more I get to know this group…..the more I adore this group.  Talk about a wealth of information, great variety of members, and an incredibly talented group of people.  Their willingness to share information instead of hoarding it for their own benefit is probably my favorite attribute.  If any of you out there are aspiring photographers this is a fantastic group to join.  You can find them on Flickr at . This group meets every other Tuesday at Elliott Street Pub near The Dome in Atlanta.  The organizer, Marc Turnley, hires models wanting to build their portfolios and photographers come from all over Atlanta to practice their craft.  After each shoot we all upload our pictures on Flickr (a photo sharing service through Yahoo) and the photographer’s vote on their favorite shot.  I couldn’t have been more excited when I won “shot of the week” after my first meeting……I was literally on top of the world!  To have other photographers actually vote for my photo over some of the talented photographer’s in the room really meant an incredible amount.   On another exciting note……I won the  Atlanta Photography Guild’s “Shot of the Week” for the second time in a row!  I know!  What????? The first picture is the winner from last week and the rest are from our shoot on 2.10.09.  Enjoy!

Tuesday night I went to check out the Atlanta Photography Guild (APG) at the Elliott Street Pub with my good friend Deb (otherwise known as the Pixel Fairy Princess).

The APG was started by Marc Turnley and is a great way to meet fellow photographers in Atlanta. Every two weeks Marc organizes a few models to come and look gorgeous and the photographers each pay $10 to shoot. The models get to build their portfolio up and the photographers get to build their portfolio up as well! What a great idea, huh??? Here are a couple of pics from Tuesday night.
