"Photographer Marc Riboud once said, 'Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.' My philosophy when it comes to life and photography is much the same. I relish the capability of capturing life in all its facets--from joyous wedding festivities to still photography--I see beauty and life in everything in our world surround, and I embrace every project that I shoot. It's a wonderful feeling to be so impassioned by one's job--I believe the fact that I love what I do comes through in my work. I delight in the chance to work every day with people in their most emotional and happiest of moments. I believe in a photography that is both heart and raw emotion in combination with logical and conscious technique. This is why I feel that my feminine eye, in conjunction with advanced concepts in composition, lighting, and technique set my work apart from many photographers'.
I do not simply 'snap pictures' of an event; I instead capture the moment and record an emotion.
Because I am so riveted by my field, I feel that I will never stop acquiring knowledge about photography and the world in general. As an active member of the national Professional Photographers of America organization (the most highly-renowned professional affiliation for photographers in the world), as well as the Georgia chapter of the Professional Photographers Association: organizations that both hold very high standards for their members in professionalism, ethics, quality of workmanship, and education. I attend their competitions and seminars on a regular basis to gain new insights and concepts in the field from other masters of this craft. Having worked with some of the top photographers in the nation, I continue to collaborate with my colleagues, bouncing concepts and creative ideas off them as I continually hone my own craft.

I select each of my photographers, assistants, designers, and studio workers carefully, choosing staff who share the same values, talents, and eye that I have developed as the recognizable style of L MP. While, as the leading photographer of the LMP team, I am the first to eagerly take on a project, when I am already booked for a requested date and time, I am pleased to pair one of my gifted team members with a client to suit his or her needs.
Overall, I try to foster relationships with my clients wherein they are sure to feel satisfied with the art they commission from LMP. Whenever possible, I like to meet with every client for a consultation before we shoot a single photograph to discuss what he or she is looking for, exactly, in our photography session. I like to be sure that we're both on the same page before I pick up the camera.
It is of utmost importance to me that my clients are thoroughly happy with the images I've created of their special memories.
In short, for myself, photography is not just a job to pay the bills. It is a beautiful, eye-opening, joyful way of life that I would love to share with you. "
