I had a wonderful time photographing this lovely family. We had a beautiful crisp late summer morning lakeside. There was a gorgeous fog which gave these photos an early morning dreamy look. They were so extremely photogenic and naturals in front of the camera. So much fun!
Oh my goodness these two kiddos were so fun to photograph. They were adorable. Little Miss A had me running all over the place on a steamy, rainy Georgia evening. She loved flirting with the camera. Her little expressions played me. Baby B was so, so sweet. His eyes were this beautiful blue that looks so gorgeous in photos.
On this cold February day I am looking back with fondness on this beautiful spring extended family photo session. I love this family! They are beautiful and sweet and I had so much fun chasing the kids around the park! What a photogenic family. Look at all this spring beauty!
I have been photograping Kale and Josey since their mom was pregnant with Kale. These boys are so hilarious and adorable! I always enjoy photographing them. I especially loved this time as they moved so this was the last time I would have them in front of my camera. How cute is this family! I love these photos and this family!
I love, love newborn sessions. It is so special to be let into someone's home when they have just had a baby. I photograph babies when they are 5-7 days old so they are brand new! I love the process of coaxing little ones to sleep and capturing every sweet, new thing about them. Babies change so fast so capturing these first days are so priceless. Every newborn session is different based on the baby. Well Baby K was a rockstar! She was amazing during her session. I got so many sweet photos of her and I love them all so much!
Kimberly and Matt had a gorgeous fall wedding at Gabrella Manor in Birmingham, AL. This venue was an absolute castle like, ivy covered, dream venue. It was a perfect setting for this gorgeous wedding. Kimberly and Matt are the sweetest couple and so in love. They have built a strong foundation of friendship and love over the years and seeing them exchange vows and become husband and wife was so beautiful and moving. There were so many wonderful memories made this day and it was my honor to capture it in photographs.

This was my second photo session of the year with singer/songwriter Joanna Duff. I loved everything about this session at McDaniel Farm Park. Joanna's beauty just shines through in these photos. I love getting her in front of my camera because it is always an amazing experience. The park was s perfect place to get the outdoor shots she needed. I love how her two photo sessions were so unique. I hope you love these photos as much as I do and make sure to check out Joann's gorgeous music at http://joannaduff.rocks

I love when someone wants something different from what I usually photograph. My sister, Jennifer decided she wanted a dramatic portrait shoot that was solely based on the makeup of Taylor Momsen. I was excited and ready for the challenge. Jennifer had her fabulous makeup done by the talented Gaby. It was perfect and exactly what she wanted. We had so much fun hanging out at her house and getting awesome photos of her in her favorite outfits. Jennifer has that gorgeous blonde hair and big blue eyes so I always have loved photographing her. After all she was one of the first people I ever photographed. I love these photos!
Earlier this year I photographed Atlanta singer/songwriter Joanna Duff. We went into this session with a vision of Brigitte Bardot, rustic and airy. Joanna was absolutely gorgeous and I love these photos! You can check out her music on her website.

Oh my how I adore taking photos of this adorable little boy and his sweet family. They are just the cutest. I loved this four month photo session. I love when I get to see sweet babies every few months. I love watching them grow up!
I had so much fun taking the B family photos. I was so excited to see them and take some fun New Year's photos. Imagine my shock when HJ took off his jacket to reveal his Big Brother shirt. I was so thrilled that the family session was also a pregnancy announcement! We had so much fun running around and playing. HJ has the cutest smile and he loved mugging for the camera. I love, love all these photos so much. I can't wait to meet the new Baby B in a few months!
I had so much fun with the Fourth of July mini sessions. I loved seeing all these adorable, patriotic kids! I love how red, white and blue really pops in photos. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the mini sessions!
I hope everyone enjoys these photos! Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. Happy Independence Day!
I had so much fun photographing this family. I have already worked with 3/4 of them as members of a Ashley and Chris' family and wedding party so it was great to get them in front of my camera again. And we just had a blast running around the colorful back alleys of Norcross. I think the fun and silliness we had during the shoot is really reflected in the photos. Hayley enjoyed showing me all the moves she is learning in gymnastics and ballet. Evie's sweet giggles and smiles just captured my heart. Matt and Jennifer just have the loveliest family and you can tell they are just so in love. I really enjoyed my time with this sweet family. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and I hope you enjoy the photos!
Love, love this photo session! These adorable kiddos are so happy and great at smiling for photos. They are such pros!

I had so much fun photographing Ruth and Dax's family at McDaniel Farm Park. It was really special to me as they were the first wedding I photographed and Ruth and I have been friends since we were children. They live in Peru now so I was excited that they were in town. Their kids are so adorable and we had so much fun together. I hope you enjoy these photos!
I had a wonderful time shooting Alaina's portrait session in downtown Decatur. Alaina is beautiful and was a natural at being comfortable in front of the camera. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is the wonderful people I get to meet. I really enjoyed getting to know Alaina while photographing her. She is a beautiful person inside and out and I feel honored that she shared her story of being a cancer survivor with me.She has such a positive outlook on life it was an inspiration to me. I loved her shirt that said "normal is boring"! Enjoy the photos and leave some love in the comments!
Katheryn and Aaron's wedding was a day full of joy, laughter, fun and emotion. The wedding was held at the Red Tin Barn in Carrollton, GA which is a beautiful, family run facility featuring a red barn and a 100 + year old oak tree. The rustic landscape made for absolutely stunning photos.
The day started with the girls getting their hair and makeup done at the farm house. Many laughs were heard as everyone bustled around preparing for the big day. The men were stationed in the barn and banned from coming near the farm house. Katheryn and Aaron had decided not to see one another before the ceremony so I did a bride and father first look instead of bride and groom. I absolutely loved the look on her dads face as he turned around and saw Katheryn in all her bridal beauty as the family watched from the front porch.
The ceremony was gorgeous and meaningful as Katheryn and Aaron exchanged vows written by them under the 100 + year old oak tree. There were a lot of tears in the audience during the ring exchange and special sand ceremony.
After spending some time taking family, wedding party and bride and groom photos under the oak tree and in the beautiful fields everyone headed on the trolley to the barn for introductions and first dances. All wedding guests and the happy couple had so much fun at the reception and not even the heavens opening up and gushing rain could put a damper on this amazing wedding. Katheryn, Aaron and their guests danced the night away as DJ Q-Tip kept the awesome music coming and guests savored the delicious cake from Catering by Josh. The couple dashed away at the end of the evening for a sparkler exit even as the rain poured down. The smiles on their faces said it all about the amazing day they had just experienced.
Congratulations Katheryn and Aaron. It was wonderful to be a part of your beautiful day and capture your love and joy!

I had such a fun day spending time with the C family on the Saturday before Easter. They were such an awesome family! So many adorable kiddos running around. They had a fun Easter egg hunt for the kids and lots of toys and games for the kids to play. I loved documenting their family holiday togetherness.
The last time I photographed Amelia she was a tiny little newborn. She is now a lively, smiley one year old. I had such a fun time hanging out with Amelia and her parents. She was amazing to photograph because she kept her smile the whole time even in the Atlanta heat! Check out these adorable and fun one year old photos!
