Photography is everything I wanted choreography to be.

When I was a young child,  there was this game trying to be some sort of roulette game for kids at my elementary's school spring fair. There was this stuffed animal fish prize  I wanted ( because I've always been a redneck). I kept playing the game even though I kept losing. It got to the point where it became crazy and the lady finally gave me the fish. I guess maybe even in my own head I knew something was a little bit off about me. 

I was asked last night about what was my most favorite thing about having this business this year. I didn't have one direct answer, of course. My mind keeps drifting off to the shady folk who kept swirling around me with their naysaying foolishiness like Flotsam and Jetsom from the Little Mermaid. You'd be surprised in how many people get negative when you grow the balls to do something on your own. I reckon that's been my whole life story though. The certain nut and bolt or even screw that should be in my head that makes folks want to be like everyone else has never been there for me. I certainly never take the easy way either! 

That brings me back to what was my favorite thing about 2016: Rich Dillen

Thank you Mountain Goat Adventures for having me and being the first folks to give me a shot, can't wait for next year! Also a thanks to Roost Racing for letting me come out and test  new territory and trails! 

 I feel all this anger and hatred bottled up in my heart, I feel like only racing cures me.  I hope I get to race a time or two next year myself (if I can stay healthy long enough). 



Exciting news! 2016 is going to be great!

It has been a minute since I've blogged on here.  Between my new day job and getting my relentless health issues sorted out, I've been all over the place. Good things are really happening though!

 First off, I'm really beyond stoked to announce that I will be the official photographer for this year's Fool's Gold 100 and 50 Mile mountain bike race by Mountain Goat Adventures! It is the series finale of the National Ultra Endurance Series held in Dahlonega, GA at the Montaluce Winery. I also will be at all the local races at Blankets Creek and Rope Mill for Mountain Goat Adventures this season too. Oh but you'll first find me shooting at Southern CX race on March 5th - I'm doing a nasty weather dance for prime photo taking conditions!!

In case you may have missed it, Singletracks.com choose my picture from last year's Mountain Goat Adventures Rope Mill Dirty Dualthon for the Picture of the Day: http://on.fb.me/20MzqJf


Next,  I got to shoot Nolan's very first Christmas on Christmas Eve! It was pretty magical.  I also got to meet Casey and Drew's big fluffy kitties! They so cute and full of nice hugs. Click on the picture below to see the rest: 


And I got to do a wonderful family session with a blue, white, and khaki theme too (click the picture below to see the rest): 

Contact me to set up your very own personalized photo session! I'm very flexible and committed to producing pictures you are crazy about.  I would love to hear from you. 

Woohoo! Hopefully this durn colonoscopy next week will get down to the bottom of why I've been feeling so crappy lately. Please send me some good vibes y'all! :)

Sneak Peek: Christi & CJ's Wedding Shower

This past Sunday I had the honor of photographing Christi & CJ's wedding shower. It was in the front room of the VCCI Clubhouse at Lake Allatoona. Once again, Shellee and Tina really out did themselves. The fall theme was absolutely adorable.  I can't help but smile going through these pictures because you can just tell these two are really perfect for each other (and I ain't blowing no smoke up one's backside).  The rest of the pictures will be up soon!!
