Where were you born? Urban Decay - otherwise known as Detroit, MI.

Have you always been creative? When did you you first "catch" the creative bug or realize you loved pursuing artistic interests? I think I have always been creative, I remember making my first slide of a reflection of some fall leaves in a pool of water. It was the 3rd grade with my teachers camera and ever since I have been hooked.

What inspires you most and gets your creative juices flowing? Looking at all forms of art inspires me. Painting, sculpture, photography, a cloud in the sky, my little girls freckles. Being around other artists really also is inspiring. I love to learn!

Family status? I am married with 3 lovely ninos!

What is the most challenging aspect of being a photographer? The most challenging aspect is to constantly stay fresh and new - one can never rest on their laurels. You may have done it yesterday, but you you have to create today in the here and now.

Where do you live and work? In suburban Atlanta, Georgia


Wedding

Favorite Food? Italian


Favorite Music? Classic Jazz

What do you wear when you are at work? Something that is not red ( to prevent the attraction of anything with horns!)


Jeremy is a gifted photographer and stylist who spent several years working in creative management for Polo Ralph Lauren in Atlanta, Palm Beach and New York. Several years ago, he and his wife, Karrie, packed up their family and moved back to the Atlanta area where they built a charming farmhouse and re-habbed a historic bank building for a studio. Jeremy is great with children and adults (he is known for his dry sense of humor and patience) and he has a charming studio located in downtown historic Senoia, Georgia. He also works on location. You can check out his website here.

Anne, your whole family is so full of life and talented! I enjoy reading about them from your Grandmother Lulu to your little brother Josh. Now I see you have another talented brother...
That website....whoooweee. That's something else. I'm a sucker for French music, and the photographs paired with the music...fantastic. Did this brother also do the website or your younger brother? Whatever, the results are great. His kids are very photogenic too. Enjoyed seeing it. Also love the repurposing of that bank!

Hi Kevin!
I hope all is well with you in TX! Thanks for stopping by and for all of your very kind comments! Yes, Jeremy and Josh are very talented. Josh designed the website for Jeremy - isn't he great? I will have to get him to design a website for me one of these days...
