Simply put, Bob is a daggum delight. DEEE-LIGHT! I’m on board with anyone who can match the snarkiness level of myself and Ms. Gina Rickicki. Gina worked her magic, making Bob’s already wonderful features look even more flawless. Yay! Bob was embarrassingly easy to photograph. Also, he laughed with us, was patient and courteous during some crazy wind gusts, and put up with Gina and I making references to “The Thorn Birds”. I mean, slap my face if he don’t look like a young Richard Chamberlain. Bob, thanks for a really fun photo time!

One of the burdens of being a photographer is that sometimes instead of snapping pics, you’d rather goof off and chat with the folks you’re shooting. Definitely the case with Angele. We both kept having to force ourselves to stop talking so that we could get to the task at hand. Sigh. What is NOT a burden about working with Angele is that she is beautiful, easy-going, and ridiculously easy to photograph. I’ve known this lovely gal for years, and I’ve always thought that she has one of the most captivating faces. SO glad I finally had a chance to get her in front of a camera. Thanks, Angele!!
My first installment of the Edward Gorey-ish, “Gashlycrumb Tinies“-inspired photo project could have been called “the roommate edition”. So, this one could be called “the boyfriend edition”. One of my favorite things about the Gorey drawings is how subtly most of the deaths are portrayed, often as a “before” versus an “after”. This one is definitely implied, and you might have to look closely. One of my favorite things about Wade, is that there are too many favorite things to list. However, I will give an honorable mention to his wicked mustache.
Ryan’s story is a pretty incredible example of a life-changing experience, as well as important advances in surgical procedures. I mean, minimally-invasive valve repair! Ryan, thanks so much for sharing your story, and for our continued conversation afterward, when I got to dust off my old cardiovascular implant knowledge. Also, I’m pretty sure that the end of every shoot should be celebrated with milk and cookies.
Oh, now where do I start with this uber-lovely little lady? Y’all. I love Jenny. Anyone who knows Jenny, loves Jenny. Was I just a TAD happy when she wanted to do a Cheeky Lamb Boudoir shoot? Perhapsibly. We got to have the most girly-awesome photo time, and her hubby got a very, very special birthday present this year. Yes. When you look at how jaw-droppingly gorgeous she is in these pics, and you wanna start hatin’……don’t. She’s also whip-smart, talented, and the daggum sweetest thing since swirly blue lollipops.
I could not write this post without giving mad, stupid props to the incredible Miss Gina Rickicki for her kick-ass hair and makeup styling. I mean, seriously Gina! Seriously.
Now, take a gander at Jenny’s photos. If you can stand all the pretty.
Robert totally gets the prize for making it through a particularly crazy headshot shoot. The weather was really beautiful, but that breeze that surely everyone was enjoying, was not playing nice with my light stands. Even with my heaviest sand bags, that darn thing kept trying to topple over. Both Robert and I would keep running to save it while yelling something like “WAAA!”. He was so patient while we adjusted this-and-that, and during several “Mother Nature” breaks amid the worst of the wind. He gets an A+ for not showing the madness in his photos, posing with ease, and being super cool to shoot and work with. Great job, sir. Thanks SO much, Robert!
This year, I had the awesome opportunity to snap some photos with the swell folks of Atlanta-based Scout Marketing, to be used in their website project for the SeaPak seafood company. Um, did I mention that our “work” was in St. Simons? Sometimes it’s really good to be the photographer! We spent a couple days in this quiet, scenic town simply capturing lots of wonderful details of the coast. I get totally spoiled when jobs feel way more like vacation. Sigh. These two companies couldn’t have been more fantastic to work with. Thanks so much Scout and SeaPak!!
