about me



I'm Corey! As in, Corey Anne, because some people aren't so sure when they only hear my first name.

my life:

I am married to Captain, which happens to be nothing more than the perfect nickname given to him by my youngest when he was 2 years old.

I am a mom to 5 ... 3 that are grown, 1 nearly grown, and a 1st grader that keeps me on my toes!

Besides them, I love ...

• Jesus: I wouldn’t be here without Him

• Laughing: loudly and often

• Dancing: in my car, at wedding receptions, and even in the grocery store

• Singing along to Broadway musical soundtracks and twenty one pilots ... again, in my car

• Living in the country with our 2 dogs and guinea pig

my photography:

Photography has always been a part of me. It began with taking pictures of my dolls and my not-so-willing cat using my nifty pink 110 film camera. My love for photography flourished over the years and I opened my photography business at the end of 2004. Since then, I have had the pleasure of photographing many families, high school seniors, and weddings in the Atlanta area. From bellies to babies, childhood to teens, and senior portraits to weddings, and back around to growing families. Building relationships with my clients and being their “full circle” photographer is so awesome to me.

I am often asked if I prefer photographing one subject over another, and the truth is, I don't. What I do prefer photographing, is emotion. Genuine moments, love, laughter, and everything in between. A few of the moments that inspire and move me are ...

• smitten parents with cuddly new babies

• silly, giggly children

• unique high school seniors 

• adoring engaged couples

• looks of love and happy tears at weddings

I look forward to photographing your memories. ♥

personal work

I occasionally share portrait sessions of my own children or personal projects on my main blog, but I also love to document the little everyday things using candid lifestyle and documentary photography. You can view a few past favorites in my personal work gallery and check out my first 365 project I completed in 2017.

I have started another one for 2018 and you are welcome to follow along on Instagram! Maybe one day I will keep up with my personal blog!
