Magic Moment Photography

Diverse Events

Spring is the best time at Magic Moment because of all the diverse events we can photograph. We go from sports fields to pageants, to father-daughter dances and begin our graduation events. An added factor is always the unpredictable weather. We are bundled up in winter coats on Monday, and the kids are running around the yard in shorts on Wednesday, and we check the weather obsessively hoping to get our shoots in.

Wrapping Up

Football season is wrapping up, and as usual, we are supporting all of the Gwinnett teams. Gwinnett has one team still in the running, North Gwinnett High School.

Off to a good start

Every start to the school year seems special. However, the 2017-2018 year kicked it up a notch with, for some, a once in a life time phenomenon, the Solar Eclipse. Schools all over the county celebrated in a variety of ways.

It is #SAUCE

We began photographing the new 2018 seniors this summer. This is always bitter sweet as it makes us clearly see the passage of time. Cute little cheerleaders that we began photographing at 5 in the local youth leagues come in with their varsity letterman jackets all grown up.

Gwinnett’s at it again!

This past summer our immediate staff (family and Meredith who is like family but much calmer) made a decision by not making a decision.  None of us went on vacation. By late August we were a pleasant but zombie like group.

Gwinnett’s different kinds of families

Who could be more photogenic then a group of Brookwood High School Football Dads in suit coats and shorts with ill-advised shoes?  It is a rhetorical question and the obvious answer is “Wow!”

Youth brings nostalgia

My neighborhood in Grayson is a Bulldog nation because my neighbor is  David Greene outstanding “winningest quarterback in NCAA Division 1 history” the University of Georgia Quarterback from 2001-2004.

Trump this

I will forever think of fall 2013 as the time when I realized that for all the blessings I was born with: great family, an unforgettable singing voice and the ability to NEVER sun burn, I was ripped off by  having short legs.

Fall pride


I may never know the “rest of the story” but there was a “Magic Moment” at Central Gwinnett Cross Country that still makes me smile.
