I am a mother, wife, step-mother, daughter, sister and follower of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I have become seriously addicted to Pinterest!   I love to water and snow ski… but rarely ever do either anymore.  I love unsweet tea.  And I am terrified of spiders.

I was born and raised in a small farming community in central Illinios.  I moved to North Georgia right after college 12 years ago… fell in love and have been here ever since.  I never had allergy issues until I moved here.  And…  I AM NOT A YANKEE, I am a MID-WESTERNER!

I am a believer in true love.  I am overwhelmed with the love you feel for a newborn, even when it isn’t yours.  I love the look in a toddler’s eye when they discover something new.  I can’t believe how times flies and how fast kids grow up.  And I am amazed at the passion that people have for football here in the South Eastern Conference (SEC)… which is rather addicting.

I have always had a passion and interest in photography. As long as I can remember I have had a camera in my hand because I felt it was important to document “this particular” day. In college, before going anywhere my girlfriends would ask… “Lanie, you got your camera?”  And that was before digital…  It wasn’t until the birth of my son that I finally decided to pursue my passion for photography and make it a career.

My goal in every picture I take is to capture the essence of “THAT MOMENT”.  Your newborn’s beautiful skin and round plump cheeks, your sweet baby girls beautiful smile and big blue eyes, your little boys love for dinosaurs, your seniors new found freedom, your daughters beauty as she walks down the aisle on her daddy’s arm about to become a wife.  I want you to be able to see that image years from now and instantly… remember.

Please check out my site, view my galleries and visit my blog.  I hope that you find my pictures inspiring and beautiful.  I hope you decide that I am the photographer to help you capture your family’s memories.
