I'm an Atlanta 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 a small newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographed hospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.
I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests and Ted 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 my fifth 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 a Mayan shaman.
When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in a memory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
