November 11, 2012 – This turned out to be the perfect autumn day for family photographs with Jacquie, Ryan, Taylor, and Tatum Johnson. And Fearrington Village was the perfect backdrop. Results from family photoshoots can be unpredictable, but I am thrilled with these photos and hope they are too!
This gallery contains 17 photos.
When Dane and Sharli approached me about photographing their wedding, I couldn’t have been more honored and excited. Besides being incredibly photogenic, both of them are full of life, laughs, and love. I knew not only would be easy capturing those qualities throughout their wedding weekend but that I would have an amazing time doing it. Check and check! Their family and friends contributed to making their special time wonderful, … Continue reading
There is something heart-wrenching, desperate, and primal when a person is stripped down to their guts and training, set upon a stage, and paid (or not) to hit or be hit until the bell has rung, the fight is over, or the will has left. What remains – bloodily shredded, broken, damaged almost beyond repair – can still smile and rise to fight again. The human spirit, embodied so beautifully by the fighter, … Continue reading
And that means it is time to hit the pool! In particular, we had a splash-tastic (oh, that is cringe-worthy) time at a recent birthday pool party, and my camera stayed busy and occasionally wet – be careful! My eye was particularly drawn to Kenneth and his antics with his father. He ended up in a touch of trouble and spent a short timeout close by me. He didn’t relish having his picture … Continue reading
I despaired leaving Chicago – the people, the energy, the sunrise drive from Evanston along Lakeshore Drive into the city of skyscrapers – and moving to Atlanta. It was the summer of 2010, and Robbie and I loaded up our dreams and hopes into two moving vans and drove over thirteen hours into increasing heat and humidity to start over in a place I never wanted to visit. Now, I … Continue reading
What’s more fun than dressing as Madonna/Rick Springfield and dancing the night away to the one-hit wonders of the 80’s while raising money for a great cause and making new friends? I’ll give you time to think about it. Ok, that’s enough. Yes, not much! The talented combo of Jami Fogle, Kim Meyer, and Elisa Coker worked countless hours to put together and host the spring Mary Lin fundraiser at The Marianna in Little Five … Continue reading
How is it that my amazing sisters, beautiful mother, and I have *never* escaped away together to bond in womanly, sisterly, and familial ways?!? (Translation: food, talk, food, wine, talk, food, margaritas, more talk, food, music, cards, and Apples to Apples.) A million excuses flood my brain but happily we righted this wrong with a celebration of food and friendship at my sister Ab’s place in Brunswick. And what happens … Continue reading
Valentine’s Day affords photographers a wonderful photo opportunity, whether it is having fun with kids or something romantic for a loved one. This cute shot, taken years ago while playing with my kids and messing around with Photoshop, is one of my favorites. It reminds me of all my childhood Valentine’s – spending hours making valentines with lacy hearts and glitter, stuffing my face full of chocolate, and coming home to surprises … Continue reading
On a recent weekend, I visited my younger sister in historical and beautiful Mt. Pleasant, SC. The annual Oyster Roast at Boone Hall Plantation was this weekend, and I hadn’t yet had the pleasure. Verdict? If you haven’t been, I highly recommend going! What’s not to love about never-ending buckets of roasted oysters, live music, oyster-chugging contests, and hanging out all day with friends and family? Make sure you bring … Continue reading
