a year in the life...

Pursue your dreams. It’s harder to do than it sounds. As a kid, I dreamed of being an interior designer. I started school at North Georgia College with a focus on photography but transferred to the University of Georgia, where I studied Furnishings and Interiors. I pursued interior design through two kitchen design internships with Rutt of Atlanta and as a residential designer with Madison Reid Interiors. I felt at home in the field. However, a detour with jobs at Mississippi State University and Florida State University, partly to follow Ryan’s career, made me realize how much I missed creativity and my camera. Time for a new dream - a dream to focus on photography. I blended my experiences with my love for interiors and photography - to discover my dream - Sugar Photography!

In the first year, I’ve had the chance to photograph 64 beautiful families. It’s our anniversary and we want to celebrate with you! You have made the last year truly sweet for me. Thank you for letting me be a part of your family memories.

You have given me the chance to explore my dream and to develop the focus of Sugar Photography. Every single shoot brought me closer to defining a vision for the client's finished product. You let me observe your love and preserve your personalities. Your feedback shoot after shoot assures me I'm finding and capturing the realness of your family. Thank you trusting me with your love - again and again.

Here is everyone involved in my first great year! Can you find yourself? Feel free to go tag yourself on Facebook. Follow us all week as we celebrate our first year, our new webpage and all the memories captured.

...and please go tag yourself on Facebook
