Atlanta Lifestyle and Product Photographer | Ashley Buzzy Lettering Workshop

Back with another feature on Style Me Pretty Living today!  Ashley Buzzy is an incredible artist in Atlanta who specializes in calligraphy and letterpress. A few months ago I photographed her Atlanta workshop while brushing up on my penmanship.  It was so much fun getting to learn from her and practice my hand lettering; however, I will say that Ashley makes it look a lot easier than it actually is, meaning I will be sticking to just photography :)  Enjoy some snaps from the workshop and for more information about her upcoming workshops across the country, check out Ashley's website.

Atlanta Food Photographer | Project Sip : Peach, Please!

Remember when Jenn Gietzen and I went to that peach farm? Well, we loved the peaches that we bought so much, that we decided to incorporate them into a summer cocktail.  When we were developing the recipe, we decided that we wanted to start something we like to call Project Sip, because we realized that we both had a love for signature cocktails and fresh simple recipes.

We wanted to create a delicious cocktail with five or less ingredients, focusing on seasonal elements and flavors.  Our hope is to create a collection of drinks celebrating the seasons throughout the year.   Jenn and I will be co-creating the drinks, Jenn will be doing the recipe specifics and hand lettering, and I will be doing the styling and photography.  We hope you are as excited about our new project as we are.  You can see this recipe today featured on Design Sponge.  Enjoy!

Special thanks to our lovely model, Candice Beaty! 

Peach Farm Market Collab | Jenn Gietzen of Write On! Designs

I am thrilled to announce my second collaboration with Jenn Gietzen.  This Write On! Designs Market Collab was inspired by summer and our love of our state fruit, the peach.  Jenn and I ventured out last week to a local peach farm and did some exploring and of course tasting.  The people were so friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed touring the farm.  After being inspired and taking a few photos, Jenn applied her magic to two of my favorite photos and created a peach series that I believe will sweeten up anyone's day.  See more below from our peach farm adventure and our market collab!  Both creations can be found here for purchase.   

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
