Dalton Exhibit Gets Press! | Dalton, GA Senior Portrait Photographer

You may have read my blog post discussing Gallery 111 Exhibit at the Creative Arts Guild (Dalton, GA) during the month of January (P.S. the opening was supposed to happen last Friday, January 9, but was rescheuled for January 15 due to to the snow/ice).  Well, this morning I got a call that there was a write up in the local Dalton newspaper about my work.  It was a very flattering article, and Terry Tomasello (Executive Director of the Creative Arts Guild) had some especially complimentary things to say (thanks Terry!).  There were a few mistakes in the article… which I’ve learned to have a sense of humor about (especially with a name like mine!).  But in case you give it a read, please note that  I’m Aharon Junkins Hill (not Aharon Hill Junkins – LOL!) and my featured photo of the Old Firehouse has been cropped (uncropped, it looks symmetrical, as shown in last week’s blog post).  Enjoy!

Hitched! Jason + Sarah | Santa Rosa, FL Wedding Photographer

If you were following my old blog in the fall, you may have already seen a few of these images.  But I couldn’t resist posting them on my new blog, because this Blue Mountain Beach wedding was so special.  The bride and groom were committed to making the day special, and thought of every detail, including a dance floor/back porch, complete with vintage chandeliers, a beachside dinner with mixed and matched vintage place-settings and [electric] candelabras, and a chef who made dinner to order.  Not to mention, the DJ was out of this world.  Oh, and P.S., this post represents a conglomerate of engagement, wedding and trash-the-dress photos. Enjoy!

Aharon Hill Photography on Exhibit (this Friday) | Dalton, GA Senior Portrait Photographer

When: This Friday, January 8
Where: Creative Arts Guild, Dalton, GA

When I was a little girl, I used to take ballet at the Creative Arts Guild in Dalton, GA (I was pretty terrible… it is just about the only art form I’d rather watch than participate in!). And before class, I’d peruse the galleries, and think how amazing it must be to have your work on display for the world to see.

Well, this Friday is my first fine art exhibition, “Perspectives” (the two photos above are a few of my favorites from the collection) at the Creative Arts Guild. It is a collection historic building signage abstractions. I wanted to exhibit work that Daltonians could relate to, so I have taken most of the photos in the collection in and around Dalton; however, the angles and techniques I’ve used add lots of drama and interest to the photos that would be missed in literal photography.

This art photography venture has been quite the branching-out experience for me (since I live and breathe portraiture) but I couldn’t be more excited to expand my boundaries.

I hope to see you there!

Hello pretty woman. I just happened across your blog post and wanted to say hello in this somewhat inappropriate forum. Your photography is really coming along, I am very proud to be a rabid virtual fan of your work. I am sure it is all due to your genetic makeup. 🙂

You know I have punted my on-line presence (Facebook, Twitter, etc) not because I am anti-social, but because I am already swamped with former student traffic to the tune of about 150 emails per day. My day job does not allow time for me to do anything that increases my already large this social networking traffic. I do look over Elouise’ Facebook shoulder occasionally and I can see there your family is growing beautifully. I can tell parenthood suits you and your hunk well & it pleases me to see all that love flowing. I can also see that you have apparently achieved a near ideal balance between your family and cultivating your passion for creative photography.

Hope that you find an occasion to come to see us again soon!

Love,
Uncle John

I love working with seniors.  They really embrace my desire to bring out their personalities in photos, and, as a result. every session is totally unique.  I’ve photographed dancers, painters, cheerleaders, athletes… you name it.  And each one brings something different to the table.  Their energy reflects their excitement about what is to come in life, and, as a photographer, I thrive on that.
