Monday Madness | Dogs on Things, Dorkiness, & Internet Fame | Atlanta, GA Wedding + Boudoir Photographer

Besides networking with fellow photographers, I’ve been busy making new friends in Atlanta since moving here in late January. Before I even packed one box, I’d noticed my old college dorm-mate Katie always being tagged in pictures on Facebook playing dodgeball and kickball. It looked like lots of fun so I messaged her as soon as I got settled into my new place. She immediately invited me to come play with her team and the rest is history. From beer and trivia at a local tavern after a game to playing {harmless} pranks on each other when we go out of town, my new group of friends have never failed to keep my life fun and interesting. And now, thanks to Reddit and the Arrested Development FB page, the world knows how awesome these people are as well! Our kickball team dresses up in a voted theme each week for our game, but on the official Go Kickball theme week, Katie and I convinced the team into going all out with an Arrested Development recreation. We not only won the contest within our league, but were also highlighted by the folks at AD themselves!

Can you guess which main character I am? Here’s a hint: Marry me! 😉 PS. I totally turned my Jeep into the Bluth Company stair car, too.

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time I’ve been “Reddit famous”. I recently discovered a photo I took made it to the front page of Reddit a year ago! The same kickball friend Katie asked for a quick favor while she was in town visiting her grandmother. She wanted to recreate a photo of her and her cat, Max, taken 14 years earlier. This was the result:

While on the subject of precious pets, I’ve been OBSESSED with this Tumblr page lately. I simply cannot get enough of the cute it possesses. Not to mention, this coonhound shares a name with my black Labrador! Basically, this {Atlanta!} rescued dog’s photographer owner quickly discovered his Maddie {with 2 D’s!} has a rare ability to balance on things and be patient for photos. Now Maddie travels the country taking awesome photos and raising awareness for animal rescue. I have her book in my Amazon wishlist, ready to purchase as soon as I’ve completed a task/goal I feel should be rewarded with such an awesome prize! In the meantime, maybe I should train MY Madie to take photos with things ON her. Get it? 😉

Lastly, I cannot forget what this past Saturday was. May the 4th. I “may” have had a wedding, but the special date never left my mind because I’m a total dork like that. Now here’s a little dorkiness for you.
