I’m going to keep this post pretty simple.  I almost stole me a baby at the end of this session…..can you blame me???

The concept is simple. Help others. Commit a selfless act. Get involved in your community. Give back.  This world wide movement was started by the ridiculously talented Jeremy Cowart and has spread like WILDFIRE!  Apparently, there are a LOT of you that want to give back to your community by participating.  Groups all over the world are organizing to provide free portraits at their community centers, parks, school, etc. on December 12th, 2009 to families that are less fortunate.

I’m a member of the Atlanta based planning committee and site leader for the Midtown Atlanta location.  We have partnered with Families First and already have 3 different locations in metro Atlanta, so we have lots of volunteer opportunities!  If you are a photographer (beginner or professional) in the Atlanta Metro area and would like to be involved in this project locally you can sign up here.  If you are not based in Atlanta, but would like to find out more information go to the main Help Portrait website here or follow the action on Twitter here.

Take a peek at the video below that got this all started!

When I first started getting into photography I had no idea how much of my life would be devoted to learning more about this craft. I will never know it all. I’ll be in the nursing home with a camera strapped to my walker reading up on the latest improvements in photography and editing. Hopefully, Jodi Friedman of MCP Actions will still be supplying me with this kind of information.  Countless hours go to editing photo sessions and Jodi just keeps making it easier and easier.  Autoloader is a new program that could shave hours off of my editing time!   I’m so glad she featured it in her blog!

Jodi also puts together some AMAZING actions.  They have literally become part of my daily workflow when editing.  I love her “Eye Doctor” action to sharpen eyes and her “Touch of Lightness” and “Touch of Darkness”.  If you are a photographer and need a quick something to punch up your photos check out her actions here (be sure to click on “Try Me” to download her free actions.  Thanks to Jodi for sharing so much valuable information!

Could this kid BE ANY CUTER???  Yesterday I went to take some pictures of my friend’s 6 month old boy Cade.  He was an absolute trooper through the entire session.  I’ve just started editing, but wanted to send you a sneak peek!  More to come soon!

Pardon me for a moment and allow me to completely dork out…….I’m getting ready to go to Zack Arias’s mixer tonight in preparation for the One Light Workshop that starts tomorrow morning.  I have been bouncing around ALL WEEK in anticipation.  For those of you that are not aware of Zack’s work….shame on you.  Zack is an internationally known photographer based out of Atlanta that specializes it music photography and is a LIGHTING GURU.  In photography, lighting is…..well…..EVERYTHING.  This workshop is a hands on nuts and bolts type of workshop that in Zack’s words, “breaks lighting down into something we can understand and know how to use in practical day to day shooting.”  I can’t wait!

I’d like to make a send a special “shout out” to my friend Andy for allowing me to borrow his camera for tomorrow…..my Canon is getting a tune up and was not back in time to take to the workshop.  You can check out Andy’s work at his website here.  Seriously….words cannot even describe how thankful I am!

I’ll have plenty of pictures to post after the workshop, but for now I’ll just leave you with a picture of the cutest dog in the world…..in the middle of his afternoon nap….

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!
