Edie Grace’s First Day of School – 8th Grade

Every day life presents us with incredibly wonderful gifts.  Some are large, others small and many we fail to recognize what a gift they truly are.  The greatest “gift” Lori and I ever received is Edie Grace.  She is definitely a gift that keeps on giving.  She is as unique as both Lori and I could ever be, with the perfect combination of our strengths.  With a mom as a photographer, there are not many moments in our life that we do not capture in a creative way.  First days of school have become an anticipated event for me.  It...

Prayers from Fiji by Ellen Murkison – Statesboro, Georgia

Prayers from Fiji by Ellen Murkison – Statesboro, Georgia

Prayers from Fiji: Everyone in Statesboro followed the story a few years ago about the Murkison family.  They went from obscurity to a household name overnight as they experienced the worst nightmare anyone could ever imagine.  Two years ago, on a fun family outing enjoying Christmas lights, their lives changed forever in a horrible car accident.  I remember as word trickled in over the next few days, weeks and months throughout the community about the roller coaster ride of emotions and experiences this family was undergoing.  Our hearts...

Bellville, Georgia: A train ride through memory lane.

Bellville, Georgia: A train ride through memory lane.

It was a beautiful day, in April of 1971.  Thirty or so, excited kindergarten students from First Methodist and First Baptist of Claxton preschool boarded a bus to Dover. We had been invited to ride on one of the last voyages of the Nancy Hanks.  Even though I was five at the time, I remember it vividly.  It was the first time many of us had ridden a bus, let alone a train. This Saturday, many of those memories came flooding back as we boarded the SAM Short Line Excursion Train in Bellville, Georgia.  That last time anyone boarded a train in...

Tuesday’s with Earlene

Tuesday’s with Earlene

For over twenty years, my favorite day was Tuesday.  Not simply because it was the day after Monday.  It wasn’t because this was the day that my house would be cleaned spotlessly, my laundry was done and my shirts were ironed with precision and a stiffness that only a drill sergeant could appreciate.  It was the day that the second most important woman in my life would come, like clockwork, and handle all the mentioned tasks with a happiness that I could barely understand.  It was Earlene’s day.  For the past two decades, she had become...

Congratulations Anna – Jefferson Davis Academy – Class of 2014

  Congratulations, Anna! Jefferson Davis Academy – Class of 2014 I really wish Anna lived closer. She is SO cool! Her mom has been bringing her for portraits all the way from South Carolina since she was a little girl. You know what a big fan I am of girl power… I think it’s super cool when a senior brings in sports stuff and a pageant crown all in the same box. I would say that’s pretty well-rounded. Anna’s going to go far, she has the spunk and tenacity that it takes. And, of course, a girl willing to get...

Congratulations Carter – Harrison High Senior – Class of 2014

  Congratulations, Carter! Harrison High Senior – Class of 2014   It’s really hard to put into words how much Carter means to me. I’m having a hard time believing that he is a high school graduate. I wish I could share the 18 years of portraits I have created of him but, sadly they aren’t all digital. Even though his Daddy is a Georgia Tech grad and die-hard fan, Carter has been accepted to UGA this Fall. “House divided” car tags probably would have been the best graduation gift. Looking forward...
