Happy Valentine's Day - 2011

It was such a busy Valentine's Day this year.  I had been fighting a cold earlier in the week and couldn't work ahead this year.  Sunday morning, I got up super early and got to work.  I had a card to make, bags, brownies, stickers and not a lot of time to accomplish it all.  I was able to get almost all of it done...the homemade brownies had to be sacrificed though.  That was definitely a bummer considering I made super cute bags that said "Homemade Chocolate Brownies."  Oh well...they were homemade by someone...just not me!  :)
If you would like some Valentine inspiration....the brownie bag and fruit stickers are courtesy of Twig & Thistle.   The card is actually an idea for coffee cup wrappers that I found on  There are sooo many fabulous ideas out there if you just look around a bit.

My gift from Jeff this year was a pandora bracelet.  I had heard of these before, but never really knew much about them.  I just love it because it's unique and Jeff picked each charm specifically for a reason.   

Monday, Jeff surprised me by showing up at my work with roses and a balloon!  It was such a pleasant surprise, because I wasn't expecting it at all.  I hope that everyone had lots of fun on Valentine's Day this year and that you got to celebrate it in your own unique way!

4th Annual Doggies on the Catwalk ~ {Atlanta, Georgia Event Photographer}

If you know me already, you know I love dogs and of course, photography!  When I first heard of Doggies on the Catwalk,  I thought, "how fun would that be to photograph!"   I saw contact information at the bottom of the announcement and thought, what the heck, I will just ask if I can go and photograph it. I never thought I would actually hear back.  It was right around the holidays, so when I didn't hear back for a couple of days, I wasn't surprised.  About 3 days later, I got the invite that I could go and I was beyond excited!  
Honestly, even if I had never heard back I still would have bought a ticket because I was so in love with the idea already.   I waited patiently for about 3 weeks until the event and then - SNOW and ICE happened and it happened in a big way.   I was really worried about how I would get down to Atlanta when I hadn't left my house in days and it was looking like the weather wouldn't be much better by showtime.  Then word came the day before that the event would be postponed until the following Friday - THANK GOODNESS!!!  Now, I could go with absolutely no worries!  Well, except for the usual nerves, but that's to be expected.  :)
These are a few of my favorites from the night:

It was a fabulous event!  The models looked great, and I give them all the credit in the world for walking in some of those killer high heels!  I can't say enough about the doggie models - SO ADORABLE!  If you have an opportunity to go to this next year, I definitely would recommend it.  I can't wait to see the show they put on next year!

Tricia Toker Photography - 2011 News & Updates

Hi everyone and Happy 2011!
I hope the new year is treating you all very well so far!

I just wanted to share some exciting news....I will be launching a new website soon!
Along with the new website, I will have new branding too.  Super excited!
I have a lot of work ahead of me to get the site up in the next few months, but I can't wait to share it with everyone.

I updated pricing for the new year, so be sure to check out the 2011 pricing section.
Also, if you have used my services before, be sure to ask me about the new Rewards Program when you book your upcoming session or event.   This is a program that I added this year for repeat customers.

This year, I plan to be asking for some volunteers.  I want to expand my brand and will need some volunteer models for some fun sessions.   This will help me become the fabulous photographer that I aspire to be!   :)
More on this later....

That's all for now...Toodles!

Top 10 of 2010....well, it's actually 20!

I had no idea how close to impossible picking only ten would be!  
I literally started writing down every favorite and my piece of paper is a mess because I kept writing more and more.   So many things were great about this year and the people that allowed me to photograph their lives and memories.   Picking only ten pictures was incredibly difficult, but I narrowed it down as best as I could.   I ended up with 20 instead of 10.  Honestly, it could have been 50 though.  :)
I have noticed that seldom is my favorite the same as a client favorite.   I'm not sure how or why that is, but we all have very different opinions and I'm learning that more and more as I photograph people.   Why I choose a favorite could be a number of reasons: composition, texture, a certain look caught unexpectedly, or the way I got the shot that I didn't think that I could.  Mostly, it's how the picture makes me feel.  What type of emotion it has...whether a person is in the picture or not.  I know that sounds strange but I have to look at a picture and have it wow me.  I hope that in the course of this year, I have wowed you a little bit through my work.  It's been a wonderful year and I truly thank all of you who have trusted me enough to be part of capturing your memories.   

soooo here it goes...My top 20 of 2010:

Happy New Year to you all and I hope you are looking forward to 2011 as much as I am!
