Family Thanksgiving Get-Together | Atlanta Lifestyle Photographer

Thanksgiving report: My 83 yr old Aunt cooked a turkey and about 10 dishes along with two desserts. She hosted 15-20 people and refused to let anyone help her clean up. She's amazing. Four generations of Aunt Margaret's family came to share in the feast.

My new puppy Roux attended the holiday event and was quite happy when he found the turkey necks that Aunt Margaret had tossed into the woods. No amount of chasing and chastising would convince him to give up his treasure.

The youngest generation of Aunt Margaret's clan enjoyed themselves in various ways.

The big surprise of the day happened when my brother Scott and his wife Kim showed up unexpectedly. They had called about a half hour earlier to tell us Happy Thanksgiving and reported they were on their way to Tahiti for the holiday. LOL

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.
