Tatum Love….

Today SIXyears ago I found out I had a little GIRL at the exact moment she came into this world…..

She was swaddled in a little pink blanket and the nurse asked me what her name was…

I said with warmth in my heart and love cascading down from head to toe….




That moment my life, my everything shifted….not only did I have two beautiful little boys I was also handed a beautiful girl….

Today she smiles with all her teeth, talks to me with her newest “most favorite vocabulary word” and dresses like a little rock star waiting to just find her stage…..


She is an extension of me….she is bigger than me….she is my Tatum….aka….Moo Moo….Tama…Tater Bug….Little Miss S….Punky Brewster…..Little Miss Atoyoo…..and just plain Princess…..


The LOVE I have…this mother-daiughter LOVE is stronger than the winds of Jupiter….I am always amazed of her kindness, compassion, insight, humor, and simple yet sophisticated approach to LIFE…..

tatum5  Happy Birthday Tatum…..Mommy Loves You……

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
