I'm an Atlanta photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...
I’m also a an adventurous traveler and an all-round nerd.
I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.
I listen to NPR, read the New York Times and believe in a free press.
I play the piano for a gospel choir at the most liberal and loving Baptist church you can imagine. I believe in the separation of church and state and celebrate religious diversity.
I was born in Atlanta, moved around --30 cities and 5 states -- then came home.
After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I worked at a small newspaper, where I photographed hospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.
I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests and Ted Bundy while interning for 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.
You won’t find many Atlanta wedding photographers with the education, experience and caring personality that I have … such humility, too. :)
When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in a memory-care home, and welcome refugees to our community.
