    No, we don’t call her KA. In the fast pace of online communication, it’s just easier to use her initials. So in the online world, she’s known as KA… at least to me. I wouldn’t doubt it if that’s how her friends type her name when they’re text messaging. One of the things we wanted to accomplish in this session is to take KA’s “senior portraits”. She’s going to be a senior in just a short week. So first, we headed out to KA’s high school.


    But this session isn’t really just about KA, it’s also about little sis, A.


    And Mom, M.


    And Dad, T.


    OK, let’s get back to the “senior portraits”. Here’s KA again, with her prom dress on the rail road tracks next to their subdivision.


    And about half way through our shoot, here comes the train.

    Today is Betsy’s Senior Prom with South Forsyth High School. The weather forecast for today was rain, rain, and more rain. As I was preparing to go to photograph Betsy, I was thinking what a terrible weather day it would be for her. But no, the skies opened up by the time I got to her house.

    Here she is on her porch.


    John came over shortly to pick up his date.


    Here’s a quick fun moment.


    And a few headshots of Betsy before they’re off to the party.



    The rest of the photos can be view here. Special thanks to Austin and Jacob for assisting with the lights.

    I first post about Katie here. Today is her Prom with South Forsyth High School. I also found out, today is her first day of job training. Poor Katie, it must have been quite a day to remember. Below are two of my favorites, but you can view them all here. Special thanks to Austin and Jacob for assisting with the lights.



  • Gone in Sixty Seconds

    What guy doesn’t love this movie, Gone in Sixty Seconds? Well, here’s the mustang inspired by the movie’s Shelby Mustang GT, nicknamed Eleanor. The Ronaele is Eleanor spelled backwards. You can see all the pictures here.


    I’ve photographed a few cars in the past while it’s revving. But the Ronaele just plain ROARS. There’s no way to hold a camera steady with that kind of power under the hood. That’s why the picture isn’t tack sharp, the vibration of the Ronaele is just too intense. But I like it that way, it kinda represents the real life feeling.


    Unlike the movie, this mustang is red. Yes, the black paint seems to be missing in some letters of the badge in the picture below. I like to think it’s because the acceleration blew off the paint.


    I love the exhaust here. And what’s not to like about those 285/30ZR20’s.


    OK, enough of the static detail shots. This 450R horse was built to be driven.
