My Girlfriends have the most adorable children!

The title says it all. My two best girlfriends from high school asked me to photograph them and their beautiful family for this years holiday season and I was flattered! I think Fall is the best time of year for portraits...
Please call me for any Family Portraits!

Magum Photos

Magnum Photos was founded in 1947 by Robert Capa, David Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and George Rodger as a response to their World War II experiences. It's one of the first photography cooperatives owned and operated by its members. One of my favorite photography books is Magnum: Fifty Years at the Front Line. I recommend this book, not only for its amazing shots, but also because it is an excellent time capsule documenting the history of our nation.

Holly & Bradley

They were the absolute cutest couple. I could tell when I met with them the first time they were forever going to be together!

Cafe du Corinth


This is my second post with the help of Saysee. It's a rainy day here in North Mississippi visiting my grandparents...but a big, fat, chocolate chip cookie is helping beat the blues. Be sure and check back for more posts and pix.

Weddings Past

I photographed this wedding for my cousin Cindy. Many years ago. I have only blogged for a short time and I had to go through and post some of my favorite weddings. This was the second time I was the wedding photographer, both times were for family. My nerves were shot, pun intended, but I was very excited about it because it would be in New Orleans, one of my favorite places. It was after this wedding that made me think I could be pretty good at this! So here you have it...

Welcome to my point of view! My name is Rosemary Stanton and I’m a photographer. Photography chose me at a very young age. I was around ten. I still remember the first time I held an SLR. I remember the season, the way the lighting looked, the outfit I was wearing. We were at my grandparents house. It was mid day and I was being nosey when I found this odd looking box in the attic. I remember holding it, moving it around, examining it. Wondering what it did. I showed it to my Mom and she said it was broken, I was devastated. I would hold my next SLR eight years later. With the same curiosity. I explain all this because this is one of the few vivid memories I have from my childhood. My sister and I still talk about how wonderful it was to grow up with our parents and each other. We are blessed. So thank you for looking in on me. I hope you like what you see. Say cheese!!!!!!!
