photographer & educator

Hi, I'm Marcie,

In those years, I’ve celebrated clients’ milestones with hundreds of family portrait sessions across Atlanta, I’ve published a very successful e-book on beach photography, and I’ve honed my passion for teaching into leading photography seminars, workshops, women’s retreats, and served as a keynote photography educator to large crowds. I also proudly serve as a Pro Ambassador for Tamron Lenses.

If you have a passion for gorgeous lifestyle photography, capturing your family’s milestones in portraits, or learning how to be a successful photographer, reach out to me. There’s always so much more to learn.

After 10 years in the elementary classroom, I closed that chapter of my life, and took the next steps to make photography my full-time career. Even with all the love I had for teaching, I’ve never looked back. 

 As the small milestones passed (the first smile, the first time sitting up), I craved a camera to stop time just for a moment. My husband heard my yearning and bought me my first camera as a gift.

I fell in love with photography with the same passion I had for teaching. From my first days behind the camera I had a drive to be great, so I started taking classes. I took portraits of my daughter that was gaining attention from my friends and family that quickly morphed from a hobby into the launch of a very small photography business. That business didn’t stay small for long.

As a child I dreamed of being a teacher. It was the only thing I ever wanted to do, and I went after my dream with devotion. As an elementary teacher, I loved my work. Working with kids energized me, brought me joy, and—just as I imagined—the classroom life came easy.

When my husband and I welcomed our firstborn daughter, I discovered another passion: being a mother. Always driven, I found a balance between family life and the energetic classroom. My love for working with children expanded. As a mom, I wanted to document the way my daughter was changing and growing right before my eyes.

Whatever I’m doing in life, I’m going to do it with passion.
