just playin’

You know, if one of my parents could photographed me like this, at this age, i’d think it was kinda cool. My kids? They’ve had a camera in their faces their whole life. The final photos impress them NOT at all! Have camera, must shoot. This is my soon to be senior in high school…

The enchanted forest

Here be dragons. There is a park in Montevallo, Alabama…who’s name i could not find written (i know, google it)because on that storm to come day, the park felt like i fell down a rabbit hole into a fairytale story. I blurred the images to make the images look like it felt.     There…

Great photos for your instagram account or whatever social media you like best. Besides, its very important to support your local farmers. You cannot find fresher food than at…

My Chameleon daughter

This is my 17 year old. I’ve not been able to get her to let me take her photos for a long time. I think the last time she did it, she was 14 or 15. So i am grateful for her to give me the time. As she is very busy with friends &…

There are everyday clothes, business attire & little black dresses. Hidden among the everyday, are very old fancy clothes. Clothes that…
