Roux Finds a Permanent Roost: Atlanta Pet Photography

We have a new puppy in our household. His name is Roux and he is quite adorable. My spouse brought him home from work where he was living in a storm drain with his Mom and three other puppies. We thought about naming him Stormy, but when he started bucking around on his leash, Buckaroo seemed more appropriate. Thinking that our older dog Barney might be confused if we called the new pup Bucky, we decided on Roo. (Turns out his little bark sounds like roo roo.)

When we took him for Sunday Brunch at the Raging Burrito in Decatur, someone suggested the spelling "Roux" and so Roux it is.

Here are few of my favorite photos of Roux.

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.
