Gabe + Jessica + Kennedy + Charlotte = Awesome Family

Well I have to admit I felt a bit rusty entering into this family session.  I have recently been shooting weddings, artist and magazine work.  I must say I want to do MORE and MORE family sessions.  I had a blast hanging with a great High School friend Gabe and his awesome family. We both graduated from Henry County High School in 1997.  Wow we are getting OLD!:)I also have had the opportunity to serve with Gabe through an organization called Powerplant for the past 6 years.  We have stayed in touch over the years.  He had contacted me about doing a family session with his lovely wife Jessica and his 2 adorable kids.  

Before we move on to the family photos I had to make this comparison.  I don’t know if many of you have heard of Josh Lucas (the actor)  but my wife pointed out to me that Gabe kinda looks like him.  So I took the liberty of doing a separated at birth comparison.  What do you Think?  TWINS maybe????


Make sure you check out their slideshow at the end!!!!!

A little shoot for a Magazine

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Don and his really nice ride.  Don owns a Cadillac CTS-V and was selected by an Atlanta business magazine for a special business achievement award.  He contacted me about doing a photo shoot for the magazine.  He wanted something that conveyed the idea of quality and consistency.  So below is the pic that will be featured in the magazine.  When the publication comes out I will make sure and post a link to it here on the blog.

The best part about working with Don is the fact that he is the father of a future Bride that I will be photographing.  Check out his daughters shoot — Paul & Karen

Here is the Pic


Can you see the changes I had to make to the above photo in Photoshop for publication? Leave a comment of the changes.

Nice improvements. Besides the lighting adjustments, you can see the removal of dead leaves on the bushes, the building windows are no longer blue in the hood reflection and you removed the opaqueness of the car windshield. Getting rid of the sidewalk ashtray column was a nice fix too. You forgot the street light reflection in the building window though. :-) Just kidding bro. Nice, Nice Photos! Is this your first publication?

I know what you did… But is it really fair for another photographer to leave what changes were done?? :)

Music Group “I The Captive” Photo Opp

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to work with this incredible group of guys.  These guys are a part of the music group “I the Captive”.  They wanted some new promo pics for some of their upcoming gigs and CD.  I was honored to spend a few hours with these guys.  You may remember Anderson (aka Andy) from one of my previous artist shoots.  Anyways here are a couple of the shots from their session.  Enjoy!



Andy and Matt do a few acoustic gigs together so here is one of just them.


Matt & Sara Moody First Glance!! & A Mission Trip

Meet Matt & Sara Moody. You may remember their engagement session if not click here to see that.

I was ok until the last three pictures – starting a new life together – walking on the bridge – I lost it.
