Thank you Trish! It was really a lovely wedding. I should have everything finished by the end of the weekend (I hope). I will let you know when they are all posted on the website.

Hello Jason I am Ethan’s mom and would love to see a copy of all of the photos for purchase… don’t seem to be able to get to there from where I am on your website. Please help a technically challenged woman ;-} Meg 706-455-8735

Meg, all of the photos can be seen here. Thanks for looking!

Fun with Hats

I had a great opportunity to do some product shots for Tina Kite Millinery last week. Tina makes custom hats and headpieces. As you can see, some of the pieces are bridal, but many of them are just really cool vintage looking headpieces. The models were great and I really had fun with this shoot. The weather was a little too cold to get some of the outdoor shots I wanted, but I still think we were really able to show off the hats pretty well. It was actually nice for me – I rarely get this much time to leisurely shoot our brides. They’re always in such a hurry to get married!

Shoot Your Family!

So, a major push for me recently has been to be better about photography the everyday moments of life with my family.  We usually remember to photograph the big moments: birthdays, Christmas, first day of school, etc.  But what about all the  small things that make you laugh every day?   That face your kid used to always make (when did he stop doing that?), the odd toys he just had to take in to the bath, the dog that died a few years ago (was he really that fury?) and so on.  Things change.  Fast.

It doesn’t have to be complicated.  I have several digital SLR camera bodies, (with more lenses than I care to admit) multiple flashes with infrared remotes to get them off camera, etc.  But, my favorite recent purchase?  A point and shot camera.  All that stuff is HEAVY!  And I ain’t handing my 1D to some dude on vacation to get a photo with the wife (sorry wifey).  In other words, the best camera is the one you have with you.  I have even resorted to using my cell phone camera on occasions!

So go ahead – shoot your family.
