Blank Canvas Massage

Carrie Padgett’s goal is to give the best individualized therapy possible to each client, and she loves that there’s always something new to learn in her field. She uses her own anatomical paintings, which hang in her therapy room, to teach clients about how their bodies work, and she educates them about which kinds of massage will work best for their body. Since massage has helped her tremendously in healing from her own injuries, she understands firsthand what massage therapy can achieve, and truly empathizes with her clients who experience serious pain.


Poppa Corn’s Gourmet Popcorn

Keith and Sumarie Forrester give new meaning to the term Mom & Pop store! They make all their popcorn by hand on-site, experimenting with amazing flavors like Fried Pickle, Loaded Potato, Spicy Peanut, S’mores and Birthday Cake. They also offer a wide range of nostalgic candies and unusual sodas. It’s a perfect little neighborhood treat spot.

I put on my backpack and took field trips with Trees Atlanta’s Junior TreeKeeper Camp to the Beltline and Fernbank Museum, where I documented their hands-on activities for promotional photos.


Frank Hamilton Music School

Students gather weekly in small groups to learn and practice fiddle, guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo and other instruments. During the second half of the evening, teachers lead the combined classes in a folk-jam session of easy-to-learn songs.


Kelsey Erin Salon

When Kelsey opened her first salon in Kirkwood, she needed some photos of both the space and stylists.
