Yodeling Massage Therapist

My Dad has been in the hospital most of the month of July. The highlight of each day has been the massage my brother in Colorado has ordered for him. When we were looking for a massage therapist who would make hospital calls, my friend Margit recommended an old friend of hers, Barry Guthrie, CMT, NMT, who specializes in deep neuromuscular therapy. He has been a Godsend. Not only does he give great massages, yesterday he brought in his guitar and sang a cowboy song for my Dad. The refrain of the song included a section of yodeling.

Here's a photo I took with my computer (Can you believe I didn't have a real camera with me?)


A self-taught yodeler, Barry brought a smile of surprise and delight to my Dad's face, my Mom's face and my face.

Thanks Barry!

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.
