I couldn’t have been more excited to have the chance to photograph these precious little 2 year old twins.  Mom was having these pictures taken to give to her husband as a special father’s day surprise (so sweet)!  When we arrived mom said the kids were a little shy, so we sat on the floor and played with them…..after about 5 minutes we were best buds.  We ran in the yard, swang in the swing, and had playtime indoors afterwards to cool off.   My sweet husband came along to help out and these kids were so sweet he actually said (and I quote) “These kids are so cute they make MY uterus ache.”  Ha! Ha!

Thanks so much to the Pearce Family for having me come into your home.  I hope your husband enjoyed his father’s day gift!

About a month or so ago I met fellow photographer Steven Skelton at a mixer at Zack Arias‘s studio.  Since meeting we have kept in touch, chatted on Facebook, followed each other’s work, and now have had the chance to shoot together!  Steven put together a strobist group in Athens, Georgia (Go Dawgs) and they had their first meeting at the Oneta Building on the outskirts of town.  Strobist style shooting just basically means shooting with off camera flash and can give you some really cool effects.  Most of these shots were done with my 580EXII flash and a 60 inch umbrella to soften the light.

Thanks so much to my dear friend Renee for joining us as a model……she was a total trooper.  She’s probably feeling like she has whiplash from a car crash after we made her flip her hair over about 15 times to get this shot…….

I have so much fun shooting with this group.  For those of you in the Atlanta area it is well worth the drive to shoot with the South Atlanta Flickr group.  Props to Julie Harnage and Jason Morrison for always organizing professional models and fantastic make up artists to make the shoot extra special.

This is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to work with Reggie Carson (aka the Stylistocrat).   Stylistocrat by R&R is a lifestyle men’s clothing brand that specializes in showing Gentlemen the proper ways to dress. Reggie, and business partner Robert, have years of experience in men’s fashion… look for the next chapter and future in Style from these two Stylistocrats. And prepare to read and know the Who, What and Wear!  You can check out their blog here.

Below is the contact information for the make up artists and the models.

I am a music freak…..always have been….always will be.  My husband (Rob), however, takes being a music freak to new heights.  If he won the lottery I think he would travel the world to see all of his favorite musicians across the continents.  One of our favorite places to browse for tunes is Criminal Records in Little Five Points just up the street from us.  They send out an email newsletter that Rob reads religiously.  He’s always entering contests to win tickets from Criminal Records….and he wins them….A LOT!  A few months ago, I swear, there was like an 8 week stretch that our friend Lillian at Criminal Records was calling every Friday to tell Rob he had won yet another pair of tickets for a show.

Last Friday we got another call from Lillian and had won tickets to Eddie’s Attic.  Now, if you are a music fan, and have not been to Eddie’s then….well….you really aren’t a music fan.  Eddie’s has launched the careers of countless musicians….John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, Sugarland, etc.  The likes of  Indigo Girls, John Gorka, Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, Brandi Carlile, The Black Crowes, Al Stewart, David Wilcox, Bill Mallonee, Kevn Kenny, Edwin McCain, Richard Shindell, Ellis Paul, Francine Reed, Patty Larkin, Malcomb Holcombe, Larry Jon Wilson, Eric Taylor, Glen Phillips, Dana Cooper, Billy Joe Shaver, Pierce Pettis, Kate Campbell, Cheryl Wheeler, Cliff Eberhardt, Vance Gilbert, Lowen & Navarro, India.Arie, Brian Vander Ark and Don Conoscenti have all played in Eddie’s quaint “listening room”.  Eddie’s is designed around the concept of actually coming to a concert to listen to the music……you will be publicly humiliated and scorned (well, not really) if you talk loudly or your cell phone rings during a live show here.  At Eddie’s you live by the mantra “Live Music Matters”.  I couldn’t agree more.

Anyhoo- So I’m at this concert last Friday night at Eddie’s enjoying my second glass of wine when my friend Andy walks in with the headliner, Sarah Peacock.  Sarah was notably bummed that the photograher that was supposed to be there to document their show at Eddie’s had not yet shown up.  Andy happened to hear her talking with someone outside about the situation and offered up my photographic services.  Seriously, I don’t know why I ever leave home without my camera.  I always find myself missing it when it’s not with me.  Sarah came in to explain the situation and a few minutes later my good buddy Renee was driving me home to pick up my camera and voila…..the images below were taken!  Sarah is on tour now, so be sure to check out her schedule here.  She has a stellar voice and a great raw earthy sound.

I’d also like to give a little shout out to The Duke and The King that opened for Sarah.  I don’t have any pics of them from the show, but they were incredible.  Can you say beautiful harmony?  Rob bought their CD and hasn’t stopped listening to it all week!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thought some of you might enjoy a video that a friend and fellow photog sent out today.  Jason Morrison, otherwise know to me as “Dubtastic” posted this video he created today to Facebook.  Jason is a fantastic photographer and all around great guy.  He has been active in photography for about 5 years, mixing in his background and professional experience as a graphic designer.  His post production skills are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.  I was lucky to meet Jason at a South Atlanta Flickr meeting at Nash Farm Battlefield earlier this year.  The video and shoot was all done in and around Studio 42 in Locust Grove, Georgia.  I can’t recommend this studio enough.  I was out there last weekend for a shoot and had a great experience. I love having a studio that you can shoot in and then walk outside to some other interesting locations!  Enjoy the movie!

The OneLight workshop was incredible.  Zack Arias’s approachable down to earth attitude was really refreshing. The philosophy behind the workshop is simple.  Learn all you can do with just one light, the use of some different modifiers, and full manual settings and master it.  Zack goes through all of his modifiers, lighting equipment, and techniques in a very hands on manner with a small group (there were 12 people in our workshop) until all of your questions are answered…….seriously…….we were there until 3am.  This workshop was money well spent for me.  I would highly recommend his workshops to any intermediate level photographers out there, but you better sign up early…….all of his workshops are selling out.  Enjoy the pics!

This kid is allllllll boy.  Meet sweet Bryce!  We had a visit to the Freedom Park here in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago and had a blast.  His mother brought all his toys, but the thing he loved the most was the work crew and trucks we saw in Freedom Park.  He was mesmerized! 

Bryce was so fun to shoot.  While I was sitting in the grass to shoot he would just run over to me and give me hugs (just make me want to melt)!  Shoot….hug…..shoot….hug…….not bad for a day’s work.  : )  Enjoy the pictures below of Bryce.

Meet Amber and Scott!  I’m so happy to introduce you to this fabulous couple.  Amber is a personal trainer and I had the misfortune…..I mean …..uh…..fortune of meeting her via her business Cafe Physique.  I signed up for a regular butt kicking twice a week for several months prior to my wedding with Amber.  Café Physique specializes in studio and in-home personal training, wellness coaching, private yoga & pilates and customized nutrition counseling.  Their programs are designed to meet the healthy lifestyle needs of clients in the privacy of their homes or in Café Physique’s private in town studio.  She will turn your living room into a state of the art training facility!

Amber and Scott- I’m so glad you two have found one another.  You were such a blast to work with and obviously have a strong love for one another.  Enjoy your images below!
