I recently completed an online course on Photographing Children through Better Photo. I received word today that I had been chosen "Best of Class" by my fellow students. I was so honored and appreciative! Here's a link to my Featured Gallery which consists of selected images from the assignments..

Picture of the Day

What a delightful surprise to wake up this morning and see that "Peek-A-Boo" had been selected by the judges at Digital Image Cafe as their Picture of the Day in the People category! I haven't had the opportunity to enter many contests this year, which is great since it means I've been so busy taking portraits! I can't say enough good things about Digital Image Cafe and the important part the competition there has played in my growth as a photographer. So, it's a special honor to have this photograph recognized by them today!

I was reminded of how much fun it is to photograph this age with these two sweet girls:

Pruitt-Johnson Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing the Pruitt-Johnson wedding last week-end at the Alabama Activity Center in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. The couple was lovely, the family and friends were delightful, it was beautifully planned by Weddings by Jill, and the weather was cooperative. Here are just a few of my favorite images from the wedding:
