Atlanta Dream Teams Up with Lions to Help LeaderDogs for the Blind

The Atlanta Lions Club located in downtown Atlanta and the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream will be supporting the Leader Dogs for the Blind during the June 26th, 2011 game versus the WNBA’s San Antonio Silver Spurs at Phillips Arena. Proceeds equaling 50% from ticket sales generated by the Lions Clubs of Georgia will be donated to Leader Dogs for the Blind and will be presented to the Atlanta Lions Club during the game. This is the first time that Lions have joined forces with the WNBA and both the Atlanta Dream and the Atlanta Lions Club hope that it will be the beginning of many future collaborations in support of Lions International charities. Tickets for the game may be purchased by visiting www.atlantalions.org. Buy a block of 10, 20 or a 100 (or just 1 or 2) tickets, enjoy a great game, support your local women's basketball team AND help the folks at LeaderDogs for the Blind continue to provide needed support for the seeing-impaired.

Hope to see you at the game. I'll be courtside and in the crowd and in the VIP box snapping away.

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
