Not only is he an amazing doctor, but also just an incredible individual.

Although he has been raising money on his rides for various charities since 2000, it was in 2009 that his focus shifted to raising money and also awareness for finding gentler treatment options for children battling leukemia and other forms of cancer. This quest began after his nephew Ian passed away from Leukemia at age 11. His cycling suddenly had a greater purpose and whenever he would find himself struggling with difficult sections of a ride, he remembered what Ian had gone though and it brought him strength. 

He'll be starting the last ride to complete this feat in less than a week which will culminate on the Santa Monica Pier in California. 

I encourage you all to not only visit his blog and follow his progress, but more importantly to donate to this important cause.

Merry Christmas Santa Favorites! http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2017/12/merry-christmas-santa-favorites So its been a few weeks since our Santa sessions at Bulloch Hall and I'm almost done fulfilling all of the orders. While there were far too many favorite images to choose from, I wanted to post some of my selections so that everyone can get an idea of the fun that we had. It was a huge success and Santa and I already have major ideas to make next year even more fun! Enjoy!

Santa at Bulloch Portrait Details... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2017/10/santa-at-bulloch-portrait-details Although its just the beginning of October, the time for Santa portraits is around the corner. The ironic thing about the Santa portraits is that I was very close to cancelling them this year and possibly forever. My Santa that I have collaborated with for many years told me that he was only going to do neighborhood parties as well as his annual Atlanta Symphony appearance and nothing else. No matter how hard I tried to change his mind, it fell on deaf ears...

I was confident that I would never find another Santa who looked the part as well as Santa Gary, and would also have the interaction with the children and families which I require to keep our sessions unique. Having that interaction and style is the whole reason I wanted to offer these types of Santa sessions; so that the children (and parents) would have fun and creative images unlike what is done at the mall. 

Well, I called and told Bulloch Hall that the sessions would not happen this year as I could not find an appropriate replacement. And then literally that same evening, I was contacted by a new Santa and suddenly there was a chance...

After several conversations and a meeting in person, I was convinced that I had a great replacement who not only looks fantastic, but also has the personality I was requiring in order to continue. He has the passion for the kids and families to make the sessions fun and special just as I do. I'm now excited about collaborating with him for years to come. This year, our sessions will be just following Thanksgiving, on Friday and Saturday, November 24th and 25th from 10am -5pm. Please check out the brief video below for a quick introduction to Santa Boggs:

Please know that my email blast will be going out this week. If you would like to be included in the email, please contact me and send me your contact information. Thank you.

Spider Fun... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2017/9/spider-fun So I was taking our 10 month old Golden puppy out in the backyard the other day and noticed this spider creating his web in the space between our bench swing. I always seem to find myself walking through spider webs (mostly at night) far too often and it drives me crazy! I'm always thinking that the spider is crawling on me as I dance around trying my best to shake it off. 

Well this one was pretty incredible to watch and I when I went back out late in the evening he was camped out and ready to catch prey. I had to grab my tripod, flashlight and of course my camera. I had to be incredibly patient as there was the tiniest of breezes and just enough to register a blur during my few second exposure. But after multiple exposures, I was thankfully able to get a few that were sharp enough and didn't have any movement. 

And after some quick research, I found that the name of this Spider is the Spotted Orbweaver and it is actually a female. Anyway, although it is not poisonous, I still wouldn't want to walk through its web and have it crawling on me... :)

And by the way, be on the lookout for my Santa announcement coming out in the next few days!

Spring Portraits at Bulloch Hall... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2017/4/spring-portraits-at-bulloch-hall Due to many requests, I have decided to bring the bunnies back this year for the Spring portraits at Bulloch Hall. Spring portraits are always a popular event for me and while Easter was last weekend, the rabbits certainly don't care, nor should you.

Of course, if fluffy, furry creatures isn't your cup of tea, you can always just opt for beautiful portraits on the grounds instead. And do I have to mention that Mother's Day is just around the corner? Wouldn't you want a beautiful family portrait instead of flowers or brunch?

Sessions are 20 minutes long for $179.95. Each session includes (3) fully edited, high resolution digital files. You'll also receive all of your images in a password protected online gallery to share as you wish or order additional images or products from.

Book your session here.

Classic Car Portraits... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2017/1/classic-car-portraits I have a friend, Don Carter, who has an amazingly beautiful 1963 Ford Falcon Classic Car. He was nice enough to let us use his car for a recent HD Supply catalog publication and while that was great, I was really excited to do some images that both he and I would appreciate a little more. I had a location in mind in downtown Acworth and I think it worked quite well if I do say so myself. Here are just a few images from our brief shoot...

Some Santa Fun... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/12/some-santa-fun Since Christmas is just a couple days away, I would be crazy if I didn't post some images from our Santa sessions last month. We had an amazing turnout and Santa had a blast doing what Santa does...as well as some things he wasn't quite accustomed to, yet cheerfully obliged. As usual everyone was able to also enjoy cookies and chocolates following their sessions and all in all it was quite fun. And the best part is that I was able to make some nice donations to CURE Childhood Cancer as well as the Wounded Warrior Project, so THANK YOU!!!

I love watching these children grow up and these families return year after year! Here are some images from this year, so please enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!!

Only a few Santa Sessions left... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/11/only-a-few-santa-sessions-left There are only a few Santa sessions left for next Friday and Saturday (25th, 26th). We only have a handful of sessions available for each day. Start the holiday season in fun fashion and join us in a private room setting inside of historic Bulloch Hall. Book your session by clicking here.

Don't just listen to me, here are a few testimonials from last year:

Last year our experience with the mall Santa was commercial, not personal and my boys were scared. Not how we want our kids to think about Santa. Our experience with Rod and Santa this year almost brought tears to my eyes. The session was unbelievably personal, our boys truly enjoyed talking and interacting with Santa, the photos were beautiful and I can't image going anywhere else to have our Santa photos. My youngest was really timid but Santa got him to warm right up and he was in his lap in minutes. We've told everyone about our experience and now we wish we had selfishly kept this to ourselves. Thank you so much for making a truly wonderful Christmas memory for our boys and for my husband and me.  - Sybil T.

 

"This was our second year of visiting Santa at Bulloch Hall, and I have to say that the entire experience is magical not only for the children but for the entire family. It is a gorgeous setting and Santa makes you truly believe. Rod does an AMAZING job of capturing the twinkle in my children's eyes and the sheer joy and wonder as they have time to interact and engage with Santa. The session is an incredible experience with pictures that will last a lifetime. We cannot thank Rod and Santa enough for creating such special memories for our family."  - Janet H.

 

Having pictures with Santa and Rod has now become a family tradition! There is no beating the convenience and professionalism of this duo! Santa is a natural and Rod is truly talented! Such a pleasant experience each year - we will continue to keep coming back! We also have recommended this special find to our neighbors and friends.  - Allison C.

Santa Portrait Reservations filling up fast... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/10/santa-portrait-reservations-filling-up-fast

Reservations opened this past Tuesday via an email blast for Santa Portraits at Bulloch Hall on Friday and Saturday, November 25th and 26th. We are half full already and the rest of the advertising will be going out in the next week. You can book your reservation here

We're going to have a blast again and as usual, our Santa will be game for pretty much anything you can think of. From wrapping him with Christmas lights, reading Christmas lists or stories, hiding behind the chair or feigning to be asleep. These are all examples of what has been done in past years. 

We'll have some new offerings this year that I'll speak more to in the next few weeks, but one will be providing everyone with the option of having any of your images turned into a digital painting by local artist, Ted Azriel. Above are a couple samples of his work from two of our sessions from last year...

Below are a couple more fun favorites from years past.

High School Senior at Old Car City http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/10/high-school-senior-at-old-car-city I was asked to do a session for another incredible HS Senior up in White, Georgia at Old Car City. I had never heard of this place until this request, but once I looked it up my answer was an immediate YES! This place is not for everybody, because quite honestly it is a junk yard that has roughly 4200 old cars and buses with the newest probably being from the late 70's... But I'm drawn to textures and items that have a certain petina and you can't find it much better than here. Plus, the place is simply eclectic with crazy signs and messages nearly everywhere you look. 

So we spent nearly three hours roaming around and then once the session was over, I spent another 90 minutes venturing about by myself just making images for my own pleasure... Please note that to visit this place they charge $15 per person and if you want to take pictures, its $25. Well worth it in my estimation and I look forward to going back soon... Below are a few quick samples of the amazing Peyton a well as few of my personal images. Enjoy! BTW, Santa reservations opening in three days...

HS Seniors, friendships for life... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/9/hs-seniors-friendships-for-life I did some high school senior sessions recently and every time I do them, it makes me reminisce about when I was a high school senior which seems like an eternity ago...and was! It is so fun to meet these kids and think about how they will look back at this time in their lives and these memories as some the best they will have. The friendships that you make and the experiences you share will truly last a lifetime. 

In doing these recent sessions, whether an individual session or a group as seen below, it's hard to not think back about your own time at that age. It seems like a lifetime ago, but so many of those memories remain strong. Just looking at a few of these samples I'd bet that you can see how strong these relationships are...

Spring Photo Sessions http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/3/spring-photo-sessions Everything is blooming nicely and if all goes according to plan, the vast majority of the pollen will be gone by the time of our sessions at Bulloch Hall on April 16th and 17th. This is the perfect time to get beautiful portraits of your children and/or family because as we all know, they grow up far too fast. And what a great Mother's Day gift as well, so put a bug in your husband's ear now! :) 

The sessions are 30 minutes each and will allow enough time to really cruise the property and get a ton of images at one of the most gorgeous times of the year. The dates of the sessions are as follows: Saturday, April 16th from 9am - 6pm., and Sunday, April 17th from 11am - 5pm. You can book your session here.

And to see who really reads this blog, for the first five people to book a session while emailing me that they read this post, they will also receive a free 30 minute session at a location to be determined this fall. And if you've already booked your Spring session, email me as well and I will honor it for you too! 

I mentioned in an earlier post about having some cool and unique product offerings and here is the first: It is called Intensitiles and is a fully customizable product that can be changed and updated periodically. For instance, as times change and children grow you can easily change out the top images (tiles) and replace them or mix up the configuration to freshen it up. The top images "float" above either one or two lower layers to become a very flexible 3 dimensional piece of art...

Spring and Pre-Mothers Day Sessions at Bulloch Hall... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/3/spring-mini-sessions-at-bulloch-hall We're nearing the time again for our annual Spring Portrait sessions at Bulloch Hall. I have heard from many of you via email as well as spoken to you directly and have thus decided to change some things up this Spring. While many enjoy having their children see and get photographs with the fluffy bunnies around Easter, an equal if not greater amount have opposite remarks about the bunny portraits.

Most of the comments center around the fact that while portraits with the bunnies are cute, they're just not something that they want to display on their walls or around their homes. So I'm always trying to please my customers and give them what they want. Case in point was when the bunny portraits first were offered over five years ago. They were done indoors to better control the rabbits and the lighting. Well clients requested an outdoor location and after searching, I was able to form a relationship with Bulloch Hall in Roswell to do the portraits in their gardens. 

So with that being said, there will be no bunnies this year. And while I know that I cannot please everyone and there will some people who are disappointed, I also feel that many people will be quite excited. This doesn't mean they won't be back next year or the year after, but for this year no fluffy critters. In doing it this way there are huge benefits; first you get to get beautiful portraits on the entire grounds of Bulloch Hall which are stunning in Spring. Secondly, by waiting to do these in Mid-April we will ensure that everything will fully be in bloom which can be a problem in doing portraits around Easter this year. I'm sorry but I see so many portraits done with children or families standing in the middle of dead grass and bare tree's and shrubs. If that is the look you're after, then go for it. But that is not what I intend to show.

Our "mini" sessions will be thirty minutes long which if you know how I shoot will ensure that we get tons of images with many different backgrounds and feels. Plus, we'll have time to not only do family portraits, but also individuals of each person or at least combinations of people based on what you're wanting. And everything will be done ahead of Mother's Day. Speaking of which, I'm going to have some special products to offer that will truly be a gift that Mom's will cherish forever, so be on the lookout for those soon. 

The dates of the sessions are as follows: Saturday, April 16th from 9am - 6pm., and Sunday, April 17th from 11am - 5pm.

Cost: $209.95 and  Includes: (5) fully retouched, high resolution digital files, and a private online gallery to share with family and friends and for viewing and ordering. You can book your sessions here

Just follow your vision... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/2/just-follow-your-vision

For anyone who loves photography, they are generally attracted to things or "scenes" that appeals to them. Sounds obvious right? Well, its no easier today with the quality of iPhones and other camera phones to capture that scene in an instant. Yes, the drawback of most camera phones is the ultimate size of the files but at least you can "capture" an image and perhaps come back at a different time to record it more properly with a better suited camera. But as we know, most scenes simply don't replicate themselves the way we first viewed it. But then again you would be surprised that while the scene/location might be look exactly the same again, it may actually look better in different conditions. So I encourage you to either take that first image with your phone or at least jot down the location in a journal or somewhere so you can go back because obviously something drew you to it in the first place. 

See what attracts your attention. For me I love textures (such as weathered wood and bark on tree's), fog at anytime, water and its many facets as well as just unique cloud formations or happenings in nature. All this from a someone who spends quite a bit of his time making portraits? Thats why I love photography. There are no rules saying you are only a portrait photographer or a sports photographer, or a landscape photographer, etc, etc... I just love expressing myself through this medium.

Here are a few images showing a little bit of what I described above. In order to get some more unique or different images, try doing long exposures, go out in different weather conditions after or before a storm. I always love to hear the weatherperson say that a fast moving front will be coming through because you can potentially have some clouds cruising which can make for some fun long exposure images. And by the way, once you create your art, share and sell them to the public! There are plenty of places to do so such as Fine Art America and others. Do it, have fun and make a few bucks...

Find Beauty in the Mundane... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2016/2/find-beauty-in-the-ordinary Its my goal this year to get away of simply blogging with sample session images and a quick blurb from a shoot. Not that I've been very consistent with blogging in general, because quite honestly it just hasn't been a very big priority for me.

I really want to address that and not by just rambling about anything, but instead would like to do my best to provide some meaningful photography information that hopefully can be used to help you with your personal photography. I would like to think that if you're reading this, you either, a) are looking for a photographer for a project or some portraits and have stumbled upon my site or, b) are perhaps a current or previous client who's looking for information for an upcoming special session or finally  c) you absolutely have no idea how you got here, but since its a photography site, decided to take a peek. 

Well, hopefully I can keep your attention for a few moments once or twice a week. If you are a photographer or have an interest in photography I would like to encourage you this week to pull out your camera or iPhone, etc and make an effort to photograph something every day for a week. It works better if that something is of interest to you such as a child/your family, a pet, nature/outdoors, but honestly anything will do. But the real point of this exercise is to find unique angles or perspectives of whatever you're photographing and to pay close attention to the light, whatever that may be. It certainly doesn't just have to be sunlight, but can be light from streetlights, headlights, storefronts, fireplaces, etc.  

A few weeks ago an old high school friend of mine was doing a similar challenge on FaceBook and then nominated me to contribute. The challenge was to post an image of nature very day for a week. Well I read that to mean go out and shoot an image every day for a week. My work schedule really didn't allow that, yet I knew that this type of exercise is incredibly helpful with sparking your creativity and opening your mind to seeing things differently. My solution was to go hiking for a few hours with my daughter and try and get a weeks worth of worthy images in a few hours. That didn't go so well as you will see below, but I really enjoyed the process and hope that you will too. So try and push yourself to find beauty in the mundane. 

Please feel free to email me with questions or thoughts. In the coming weeks and months I'll be discussing a multitude of ways to enrich and enhance your own photography, so please check back as you can. In the meantime, here are a few images from my aforementioned hiking trip to Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park.

Outdoor Family Portrait Session... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2015/11/outdoor-family-portrait-session I had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful family in a beautiful setting yesterday. We did the session at the family farm in Powder Springs and it was just a perfect location and day. There was a very slight chill in the air, the skies were partly cloudy and overcast (my ideal outdoor lighting preferences), and there were abundant background choices with plenty of colors and textures. Whenever possible I always try to photograph my sessions at locations that are more meaningful to my clients. While I enjoy all of my sessions, some just provide that extra satisfaction usually due to the location and this one definitely fit that bill... I hope you enjoy a few of the samples from the session as shown below.

Halloween Wedding... http://www.rodkaye.com/blog/2015/11/halloween-wedding On Halloween I had the honor to document the wedding of a really fun and exciting couple, Natalie and Ryan. To say that I went into the day with anticipation of the unknown is an understatement. And although there wasn't a ton of crazy Halloween things going on, it was easily one of the most fun weddings I've ever been too, let alone covered. And that's testament to the couple whose personality totally fueled the party.

The reception was at Indian Hills Country Club in Marietta and was first class. At one point though I honestly thought the floor might collapse from the dancing as the house was rocking. Ryan, who has no fear of embarrassment, really kicked the party off with his impersonation of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" dance and when Natalie joined him on cue, the party was on...
