Gorgeous Creature

This gorgeous creature has landed on our deck railing a few times in the past couple of weeks, but my camera is usually in the other room.  This day I happened to have it within reach and was able to capture this shot.  He definitely had his eye on something but I definitely had my eye on him!


Volleyball Focal Point

Many times I am authorized to use some of the athletes in my sports photography but have a hard time maneuvering around those I am not authorized to use.  These photos are too good NOT to post, but I gave a little bit of an enhanced focal point and some editing action to help show the awesomeness of this amazing volleyball player and blur out the players I could not use.  I saw some awesome strength on the court during this photo shoot!

Homecoming 2017

It was a pleasure to photograph my daughter and her friends for Homecoming this past weekend.  I enjoy being a photographer and love to capture some meaningful and very fun moments.  What a great group of kids I got to photograph this day and a special thank you to them for letting me post these photos.  What a fun day!!

Today, we FINALLY got an opportunity to visit the The Anderson’s Sunflowers in Cumming, GA.  It was an awesome place to visit!  I love sunflowers and really enjoyed being around so many of them.  It is a wonderful place to take pictures and a photographer’s dream!  You can even buy some to take home with you or pick your own! Hope you enjoy and if you have a chance, go for a visit and take your camera!


Sammy’s New Collar and Leash

My dog, Sammy, is such a ham!  I think he knows how cute he is.  Today, I put a new collar and leash on him made from my friend at www.stitchpet.com.  He loved it.  Of course, he got excited because he was going for a walk but he strutted around our house right by my side until we went OUTSIDE.  I took him outside to get a few pictures and of course, he was so patient, obedient, and did what I needed him to do.  He’s such a good boy.

If you are looking for unique gift ideas, check out www.stitchpaint.com.  They have some really cute handmade products.  They also made this leash and collar by hand.  The leash and collar set is soft, cute, comfortable, AND durable.  The leash also comes with a cute poo bag holder.  Check out their website and their products and don’t forget to shop for your furry friends.  Sammy approves for sure!!

Oh Deer!

We live in an area where there are lots of deer.  They usually move around together.  It is not uncommon for the deer to be in our front yard, taking naps in our back yard, or crossing the street.  Today this beauty was alone and spent a lot of time in our front and side yard.  This deer had darker coloring than normal and was very shiny.  So beautiful.  So happy they like our yard.
