"Debbie, Thank you again for the photoshoot and the amazing experience of the slideshow. What a gift for her and all of the young ladies whose lives and hearts you are touching. The photos captured her true beauty inside and out! You have a gift and I am so grateful that you shared it with us!"

"Miss Debbie, I wanted to expand my answer on why I would like to be a senior rep. Ever since I was diagnosed with Anorexia at age 10, I have struggled with weight and body image. It has been off and on, however, these last few months have not been so good in that area. I remember scrolling through your page one day and seeing how you featured many different body types and they all came out beautifully. This is why I chose to apply as a senior rep. I want some pictures of myself that I can feel positive about and believe you can capture that!" 

Heather - "I don't even know what to say. Thank you doesn't seem enough for these photos!! WOW!! You captured each one of my kid's personalities better than my words could have even explained. I am thrilled that I can relive these moments time and time again on my walls. It gives me goosebumps to think about these treasures years from now when I want to remember the way my kids are today. Thank you again! You truly have an amazing gift, not only with the camera, but with people."

Rachel - " You are truly one of the most talented photographers I have ever had the pleasure of sitting for or putting in front of my children to capture their beautiful little souls! You have a gift!"

John and Kelly - "Thank you so much for the amazing job you did photographing our engagement session and capturing all the beautiful moments of our special wedding day. Probably the two hottest days of the year, you turned two sweaty, red-faced people and really made us look our best. We are not the most comfortable people in front of a camera, but you definitely made us more at ease and you are a true pleasure both professionally and personally." 

Lisa - "Thank you Debbie for your talent, passion and expertise in addition to your fabulous personality!!! I am so grateful. I can’t wait to see all of the photos."

Nicole - "Thank you so much for capturing such beautiful photos of us! We had so much fun during this session! You are truly amazing at what you do & make it an incredible atmosphere to capture sweet memories!" 

Michelle - "OMG!!! LOVE them all!! They're amazing!!! Thank you so very much!!! I'm so happy!".

Tina - "Debbie has been photographing my boys and my family since they were very young. Recently, she did my son's senior portraits. She is truly gifted and can capture a person's spirit in photographs, which is so hard to do. Not only is she one of the kindest people I have ever met, she is professional, gracious and SO INCREDIBLY TALENTED!!!"

Susan - "Debbie, you caught the essence of my boys, all of them. Thank you for bringing out the shine of their souls and capturing it from behind the lens. It was the beginning of a new chapter in their lives and I'm so thankful for you capturing them before they flew the nest."

Tiffany - I still remember the shoot you did for us at The Memory Cottage 14 years ago. I had just lost my grandmother not even a month before my daughter was born and the slideshow/video sent me over the edge. The care and thought you put into the entire experience is unlike any other I've ever had!" 

Carolyn - "We love you Debbie and treasure the masterful portraits you have done of my children! You have such a God-given talent. Thank you for blessing us all of those years!" 

Kirsten - "The photos are beautiful!!! I'm holding back tears. You do such an amazing job. So excited we will have these forever."

Wendy - "This amazing person, Debbie, has taken pictures of my kids since their daycare days, for 17 years now. Baby "N" screaming in Santa's arms is a priceless picture. The last photo of our latest family session was on a day with cheesy grins, eye quints, wrestling and laughter - LOTS of laughter. Isn't it just perfect? I am so grateful to have these memories as we face our first of many family changes with "N" being a senior.  The senior pictures are amazing! So many great ones! Thank you for capturing the beauty & and soul in my family and thank you, Debbie, for being such an important part of our lives."

Mindy - "Our senior photo session was so fun! The last time Debbie took her picture, she was 5! Thank you to The Studio for making it such a great experience. If you still need to book senior photos, I highly recommend Debbie at The Studio at Daisy Hill. She is so creative and talented and makes it easy."

Helen - "God bless you! You have an amazing gift that you use for such good! Thank you!"

This is the part I don't like to talk about, but seems like you should know.

I am a Certified Professional Photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. This is a grueling and lengthy process, with a substantial amount of classes, art competitions and extensive reviews. I have traveled all over the United States taking classes for professional photographers.

I have received international awards and have been featured in numerous publications. Because over 65 publications or media outlets showcased my art in 2019, I was awarded the Editor's Choice Award in 2020 for being in the top 5% of photographers nationwide.

The Atlanta news station, 11 Alive News, did a story (as shown above) as well as the Atlanta Journal and Constitution on my photography work with building confidence in ladies and helping them feel beautiful. I want to help all ladies to find their own kind of beautiful and realize that they are perfect just the way they are.

I was interviewed on 104.7 The Fish Christian Radio Station and The Joy FM Christian Radio Station about my photography work with ladies. 

I was awarded the Kodak Photographer of the Year and my work was in the Kodak Book for that year.

I have done extensive work for The American Cancer Society, taking portraits of cancer patients and survivors as well as raising thousands of dollars with the Beautiful Baby Calendar I created.  

I believe each and every person has a story, has value and dignity, and deserves to be heard. For my Sparks of Kindness FB group, changing the world with kindness and acceptance, I have been interviewed several times on 104.7 The Fish, 11 Alive and WSB News and Radio. There have been articles about it across the globe including in The Associated Press, US News and World Report, The Washington Post, LA Times, Miami Herald, the Atlanta Journal among many others.

From the time I was a little girl and through college, I studied art, which is reflected in my work. This is my full-time passion and I am not a hobby photographer. I have many, many years of experience and knowledge on what to do when things come up, as well as how to make everyone feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera

Here are a few of the current publications that my work is featured in.

I WAS AWARDED THE EDITOR'S CHOICE AWARD (TOP 5% OF PHOTOGRAPHERS IN US) FOR BEING PUBLISHED OVER 65 TIMES LAST YEAR!

More important to me than awards or media coverage is the amount of clients who have returned to me over the years. I have become their family photographer, capturing the everyday and special moments in their life. I have also become their friend.
