Just Published: Vivian Maier (Book)

Earlier this year I shot a little project for an author who was writing a book on the recently famed photographer Vivian Maier. This book was JUST released, and has been getting some great reviews. You can find it at Barnes and Noble or on Amazon, but here's a little preview of my tiny part of it...


Holiday Photos- Now Booking!

Our babies grow up SO dang fast! I absolutely love looking back at just how much my own sweet babe has grown from year to year, and am currently in the planning process of her yearly holiday photo for this year. I also LOVE to see how my clients children grow and change year to year, and want to get started on planning YOUR holiday session as well! I can't believe it's already time to finish booking holiday sessions, but it is... I only have TWO SLOTS left for holiday photos, so be sure to get in touch with me to book YOURS ASAP! 

We can focus on your child(ren)...  
... or do a portrait of the whole family.
We can shoot in the studio...

... or at your favorite location outdoors. 

We can theme it for your special winter holiday...

... and capture a set of images you want to share on your holiday cards.

Seeing Differently Exhibition

It's been a busy exhibiting season for me, as I've finally had a chance to work on and show some new personal work. To round it out, I attended the opening night reception for "Seeing Differently", a photo exhibition through The South Cobb Arts Alliance, running in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography. ACP is an annual, month-long photography festival in the Atlanta area that celebrates all things photography. It's now in its 19th year, and it's an honor to be a part of it.

The cherry on top is that my included image is the other half to the set which was shown in the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art exhibition last month.

If you missed the opening night reception, the show runs until October 30th. More info. on the exhibition can be found HERE.



Earth Art Class Summer Roundup

I'm a little behind on this post, but our summer session of Earth Art classes were fantastic! We focused on photography and printmaking (my specialty), by learning about some photo and print history, different kinds of printmaking, got to play with old camera equipment and film pieces, learned how to set up and shoot in a studio, print fish, and use the sun to print with. Here's a roundup of images from this session, with more photos and details being found HERE.

Pin-Ups at The Art Station, Big Shanty

It has become a yearly tradition that my daughter and I work on some art pieces together to put into this annual all-ages art show at The Art Station. I usually work on something different than I would normally exhibit, and just enjoy the process of taking time to create together. This year, we themed our entries to go together, as "underwater" pieces. We each created a Gyotaku (fish) print, which we worked on during my summer Earth Art session, and then Gemma painted "Sea Ball" with watercolors and homemade rock paints, and I re-worked a 3-color etching I had created a few years ago. I had been thinking about how I could update some of my older work that I have sitting around, and this was the perfect time to do some experimenting. I went back into the piece and added a little watercolor, and homemade rock, mineral, and patina paints to it, to add some texture, depth, and more color variation. 

This is a fun little show that is family-friendly, and will be up until September 29th for viewing.
