ABOUT the Staff
Coach Gerald "Boo" Mitchell
Coach Gerald “Boo” Mitchell has always had a passion for physical fitness, training, and helping others to get better! He began his athletic career at the age of four playing football at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, GA. With three older brothers and one younger brother, he found himself in the position of being able to train with and learn from the older brothers while teaching and mentoring his younger brother what he had learned from his older siblings. As a youth, “Coach Boo” (as he is now affectionately known) played football, baseball and basketball for the Moody Air Force Base youth leagues, and he was a stand-out athlete in all three sports.
When he reached High School, “Coach Boo” made the decision to pursue football because it was his favorite sport. He is a very proud graduate of Lowndes High School where he played quarterback, wide receiver, defensive back, and return specialist. After a very successful academic and athletic career at LHS, “Coach Boo” earned an athletic scholarship to Vanderbilt University. He was able to continue his athletic success there while earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He was on the ALL-Freshmen SEC Team, First Team ALL-SEC, Two-Time SEC Offensive Player of the Week, and Vanderbilt Team Most Valuable Player amongst other accolades during his career. His Senior season, “Coach Boo” set both the ALL-TIME Vanderbilt and SEC Records for Career Receiving Yardage as he finished the season first in the SEC and third in the Nation for receiving yardage for that season. He played in the Ricoh Japan Bowl that same year where he was the leading receiver in that game. Following his career at Vanderbilt, “Coach Boo” chose to pursue a career in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks, but it was quickly ended due to a severe shoulder injury.
“Coach Boo” is now the father of three children and lives and works in the Gwinnett County area of Atlanta, Georgia. He is a Certified GHSA (Georgia High School Association) football coach, and he has been coaching both High School and Youth football for nearly sixeen years. He has won the Gwinnett County Touchdown Club Assistant Coach of the Year Award, won a State Championship Ring as an Assistant Coach at Peachtree Ridge High School, and won two National Championship rings with the Northeast Georgia Team as the Offensive Coordinator for the 8th Grade FBU (Football University) National Tournament.

Learn new...Learn now...Learn to inspire!
Photography became Trish's hobby twenty years ago when she had her first child. As she captured his life, and later her other two children's lives behind the lens, it inspired her to take this hobby one step further. The art of photography inspired Trish to seize precious moments and memories for others around her as well. For instance, she was able to give clients not only a picture of what their child looks like, but also a portrait of who that child is with the child's distinct personality captured in each photo.
Although she shoots a wide range of photography including: senior sessions, family portraits, engagement photos, and pets, her true passion is sports photography. When taking photos for a team, she strives each time to capture the perfect picture that enables the athlete to look back at it and remember that special moment for a lifetime.
