Nicole and Donald are married!

It was a privilege and a LOT of fun being there to witness and document Nicole and Donald's wedding. A super-quick sneak peek is posted below -- stay tuned for more over the next few days! As you can see, Nicole was serenade-worthy in her radiant beauty!

I photographed CJ today in my role as a "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep"(NILMDTS) affiliate volunteer photographer.

He is gorgeous and strong and so clearly loved.

I am posting this in case his mommy takes a look at the blog, before I get a chance to complete the package I will be mailing them.

He and I share a birthday... He is two weeks old.

I am honored to have captured these very special images. You, guys, are in my prayers.

My colleague and friend Fahad and I had fun yesterday taking a few images of him and his latest favorite vehicle:

A few more pictures from this weekend.

The many faces of Mary, all within one minute of each other:

What says "toddler" better than a crayon and a cracker clutched in the same little hand - and one more cracker in the other hand, for good measure :)

Two days after these images were taken, the temperature dropped by 30F and we had snow flurries in Atlanta!

More twin cuteness

A few more bright sunny images of Nicholas and William:

Celebrity spotting!

Handsome William was spotted this weekend after apparently having shopped at B&BW. He then had a quick bite to eat at a posh midtown cafe :)

(I love photographing this beautiful child!)

The power of a smile

Here is an image I took today of my good friend Nicole, looking young, fresh and absolutely radiant!

Spring is in the air!

Here is a picture of Spring herself :)

A boy and his dogs

Charming Tommy and his fun animal friends:


There is something special about this image that draws me to it. It's been on my mind a lot since I created it earlier this month.

The depth of the child's gaze, the anytime/anywhere out-of-time/out-of-place aspect of it. There is something extraordinary about it, in my perception, anyway:

Jump for joy!

I love jumping pictures, and tonight I had some cooperating models :)

One of them also ended up posing advertisment-style, for a certain product she favors currently.

Color me pink

I just can't say "no" to color, when it comes to certain Mary pictures... I was going to turn this one to sepia, but instead, here it is:

Big day preview!

The big day is fast approaching for Nicole and Donald -- check back for a sneak peak a week from this weekend!

Wedding bliss

From a wedding last month:

Here "E" is!

A long overdue picture of the guy most endearingly unaware of his stunning good looks... no wonder he is spoken for!!

Saving the Daylight

I love the time change! "Saving the daylight" is exactly right -- our carport in the evening is aglow, perfect place for my favorite type of image: backlit portraits!

A brick wall

A quick self-portrait this evening:

Fairground attraction

A perfect end to a gorgeous day:

Fun with backgrounds

Here are the gorgeous sisters Indie and Mila, photographed against an "urban" mural and against the sky+moon. I love these images!

Close to sunset today (7:30) the light reflected off a brick church across the street became this amazing golden portrait light -- here is my son, temporarily interrupted from playing with the dirt near a mound of... hmm... trash? The light can make all the difference:

36 is not bad at all. Hard to believe though that 18 was half my life ago...

Yesterday, on my birthday, I felt happy, loved and incredibly blessed:
