Sadly, all good things must come to an end. Such is the case with the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. L Brands has canceled the program, saying the decision was part of a move to “evolve the messaging of [the company]” and dial back the brand’s more extravagant marketing methods.
Before anyone accuses me of being shallow, there are a lot of different kinds of beauty.
There’s structural beauty where we marvel at the symmetry of someone’s face or aesthetic beauty resulting from a pleasing presentation well put together like a work of art.
There’s a beautiful soul who inspires admiration of her empathy and compassion.
There’s cuteness, often associated with pretty children, but present whenever someone looks so adorable that they possess a contagious attractiveness.
There is awe of someone’s genius or intuition.
There is beautiful strength, found in those who show an enviable strength or persistence in the presence of challenges.
True beauty is rare. And all around us.
The DeKalb County Democratic Party opened its doors during the Fort Payne Block Party, Halloween edition. These people came in off the street for me to photograph.
Thanks to everyone who participated. You can download a color version for free — or find your child’s photo if you don’t see it here.
Allow me to tell you a story about a girl, a boy, and a lust for blood…
Greta decided to take a walk. She was down the street from her home when she saw a mysterious stranger in leaning against the block wall in the shade.
For a moment, their eyes locked. She thought he was handsome standing there smoking a cigarette. He was tall and dark and muscular. She’d never seen him in the town. She was intrigued and wanted to know more, but she was too shy to introduce herself.Read More
I enjoyed attending Thursday’s screening of four short films all focusing on environmental issues in my home state of Alabama. The Southern Exposure event was held at the Little River Canyon Center.
Southern Exposure is a film fellowship program that is actively raising awareness about Alabama’s incredible natural resources and important environmental issues that impact all of us.
This innovative summer fellowship brings emerging filmmakers from across the country to tell authentic, engaging stories through short documentary films about Alabama’s environment.
Alabama Bridal Photography
I’ve had several people ask about wedding photography. I do very few of these events, preferring to do Alabama Bridal Photography, typically on a date before a wedding when the bride does a test run of her hair, makeup and the dress.
I’ve created this gallery to share some of my past bridal portrait photography and event coverage.
Let me know if you have any interest in booking a bridal portrait session with me.
One of my favorite new collaborators is Savannah M. With the annual arrival of the fall county fair to my hometown (and literal backyard), I proposed we do a “Grease”-themed carnival photoshoot.

“Grease” is a 1978 American musical romantic comedy movie based on the 1971 musical of the same name by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. The classic film depicts the lives of greaser Danny Zuko and Australian transfer student Sandy Olsson who develop an attraction for each other. The film stars John Travolta as Danny and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy.
