I had the privilege of photographing families at a Family Camp and I'm naming this photographic shoot - Hear'ts Locker to represent the love and sacrifice each of these individuals provide and have provided for our country at the Wounded Warrior Camp. 

This little girl was so precious and you can truly see just how much her parents love and adore her.












Celebrate Freedom

23 June 2012

The goal of the Celebrate Freedom Photo Shoot (that I composed with the help of my fellow photographer friend, Kristy, as well as the models who took part in this shoot), was to showcase the celebration of July 4th, reflect Freedom, as well as the colors of Red, White and Blue as a significant collaboration of Independence. So each year, what we celebrate for one day, on July 4th,  was in truth, a 20 year struggle for independence. Our Declaration of Independence stands today as one of the most profound declarations ever written. Perhaps the most famous line from the Declaration of Independence is - “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.


I love learning new techniques and love giving the younger generation an opportunity to get their feet wet with modeling. So with both accounts in mind, I posted on my personal Facebook page, as well as the group page I created on FB called the Conyers Photographer's Guild, that I needed models willing to pose for this shoot. Everything unfolded perfectly and opened up the chance for two young men; Christian and Will to have their shots taken by me (and my friend, Kristy), while they posed alongside Adrienne, who has a few years of modeling experience under her belt. It was hot and muggy day in Georgia, but we got through the shoot and the pictures (in my humble opinion) turned out fabulous!

INTRODUCING CHRISTIAN NABI:  "This was my first modeling photo shoot. I got involved because I heard through my mother that Ms. Mary Anne needed some extra models. I desire to be a model because I enjoyed this photo shoot and have always thought about being a model. I recently graduated from Heritage High School and am currently enrolled at Valdosta State University. I will attend VSU for a couple of years before I transfer to The University of Georgia. I have one younger brother and one older step brother.

Athletics are a huge part of my life; I am always doing some type of sport, from swimming, to football, to soccer, to wrestling, etc. Which is why one of my favorite quotes comes from the great Michael Jordan - 'You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.'"

Christian was so willing to pose any way I needed him to and his mother has certainly raised a fine young man. Christian is such a polite young man and I hope to see his talent grow with modeling.

INTRODUCING ADRIENNE OWENBY: "I am 23-years-old and have been modeling for about 7 years now. I have done many shoots and runway modeling. I’ve been married for almost five years and have a three-year-old son. My main job is a Secretary at Advanced Retirement Planning. I absolutely love modeling. Modeling is my hobby and when I have the chance or opportunity to do it, I enjoy it so much. I love working with different photographers because everyone has a different style and way of doing things, and it’s always fun to see how the pictures will turn out."

Adrienne has posed for me one other time and my camera just adores her. She is one of the sweetest models I have had the pleasure of working with and I also hope to see her talents grow as a model.

INTRODUCING WILL BREWER: "This was my first modeling shoot. And it started for me a few months ago. I sent some pics in to a company and they were very interested but then I never heard anything back. That's when I got started with MaryAnne Hinkle Photography. It wasn't my idea to be a model until other people started suggesting it to me. They said I had a great body and a great smile so I thought I might give it a try.

In July I'll be graduating from Athens Technical College with a degree in Criminal Justice. My goal is to become a law enforcement officer for the state of Georgia. I have two sisters; one is 23 and the other is 3. My family and I are very close. Some of my hobbies are going to the gym and just playing any sport. I am very active person.

My favorite quote is: “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.” This is my favorite quote because whenever I'm close to giving up on something I just think of this and it just keeps me going."
