WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE! I have specialized in Lifestyle Photography for the past 15 years...grab a cup of coffee and enjoy browsing! The focus in 2018 has continued to celebrate relationships! Speaking of relationships, there's a new baby in our home! Her name is Sissy. Sissy is a Morkie, a sweet, family loving breed, who will probably tip the scales no more than 5 to 6 pounds when she's grown. Keeffee, our 2 1/2 year old Morkie, is thrilled with the addition of Sissy to our family. Keeffee is the best big sister ever and they have lots of fun together! Check out the slideshow above...
NEWS for 2018...I will be retiring at the end of the year! Anyone wishing to purchase images will need to do so before December 1, 2018...files will not be available after that date. I will continue to volunteer with NILMDTS, a remembrance photography organization to help support grieving parents. It's time for my husband and fur babies to do some traveling!
A few years ago, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary...and we did it in style with a trip to Seattle! I invite you to check out a few of our vacation photos in the slideshow below. We made new friends, visited the San Juan Islands during a day of whale watching, got to see the famous fish tossing at the Seattle Market, visited the rain forest, ate LOTS of culinary delights...even took a cooking class which we enjoyed down to the last yummy bite! And need I mention there's a coffee shop on every corner?? That kept my energy going while I did lots of gift shopping. Although we didn't spend much time in the hotel, when we were there, I was glued to the window watching the ferries come and go, and the huge ferris wheel constantly thrilling visitors with a great view of the harbor. Ken and I are now planning our 25th anniversary trip...it's going to be fabulous! EXPLORING SAVANNAH WITH INFRA-RED... My husband and I love to visit Savannah! Taking my infra-red camera, I spent time in one of my favorite places in that area...Bonaventure Cemetery. It was a cold, rainy day...and yet, the crowds were there. Bonaventure is quintessentially southern Gothic and is home to grave sites of military generals, poet Conrad Aiken, Academy Award winning lyricist Johnny Mercy...among many others.So much history! Enjoy browsing the Fine Art section of the website to see some of the images captured there. While in Savannah, we of course visited the Tybee Island lighthouse, the Oatland Island Wildlife Center and several previously not visited restaurants that were no less than fabulous! If you love barbeque, and are in the area, you MUST visit Wiley's BBQ...ranked 1st in Georgia and 4th in USA Trip Advisor. Pearl's Saltwater Grille was an elegant, mouthwatering experience overlooking the tidal basin...service and food were impeccable! Now that we have our little fur baby, Keeffee, we search for hotels that welcome animals. If that's your situation and you're planning a trip to Savannah, be sure to check out The Brice located across from the river...they are the best in customer service and accomodations!
A major portion of my photography has been about babies and families. However, not every family is blessed to bring home a healthy baby. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is an organization which provides the gift of remembrance photography for parents suffering the loss of a baby. If this touches your heart as it does mine, please check out their website and consider a donation to their site. If you are a photographer, check out their website and see how your talents can be used to provide healing for families who have experienced this grief. I think you'll find, as I have, that it is some of the most rewarding work you'll ever do!
A HUGE thank you goes out to all my clients who I've had the pleasure of working with over the past many years!
