Theodore Boys | Atlanta Family Photographer | Aharon Hill Photography

My yearly date with the Theodore boys is one I always look forward too.

They love each other so much, and are just contagious with joy.

This year was especially awesome, because Austin has grown up so much… yet is just as cute and sweet as ever.

And his little brother, who is equally sweet and awesome, is finally old enough to get in on play time!

Thanks for another amazing photo date, Theodore Family!

Emma Kate Turns 1 | Marietta Birthday Party Photography

Well, I have been anxiously awaiting the day that I could post images of this absolutely precious little girl’s “Candyland” birthday party.

I say it every year that I have the honor of photographing one of the Bolen-girls’ soirees, and I’ll say it again: it takes a very talented, loving and creative mama to pull off a party of this scale, beauty and attention to detail.

One day these little girls will sit and marvel at the first class shin-digs their mama threw for them… I mean, wow! Diane, you are just an absolute fountain of creative and beautiful ideas!

There was no way to cover every inch of this party without posting at 100+ images, so I just chose my favorite details and portraits from the day to share with you.

From cakes and sweets galore, to a goody-bag bar, to a chocolate fountain, to goony golf, to a candy house, to a face painter… I mean, this party had it all!

And there is no doubt in my mind that Emma Kate enjoyed herself, even at her young age; the smiles say it all.

Big sister may have had to wait a month for her party (btw, can you believe Diane will do this all over again tomorrow? But with a different theme? She is super-mom!!) didn’t miss out on the fun; she donned a special smocked candyland dress, and fully immersed herself in all of the party games and goodies!

And at the end of the party, I was even able to capture a few precious sister moments between the Bolen girls <3

What a beautiful day! Thanks so much for choosing me to capture this gorgeous Birthday Party, Diane… and Happy First Birthday to Emma Kate!

 

Julie & Chris are Wed | Callanwolde | Atlanta, GA

Julie and Chris are such a special couple, and I had the absolute best time shooting their wedding in April.

They were genuinely happy to marry each other, and to celebrate their vows with their family and friends.

For the occasion, Chris brewed several kegs of beers, which were on the bar’s drink menu!

And when the wedding was over, the wedding guests were dismissed to a garden where they formed a heart shape, and a drone captured the amazing moment.

But my favorite part of the day was Julie and Chris’s first look– when they opened their eyes and saw each other silmutaneously for the first time. on their wedding day.

I am getting goosies just reporting on it!

I mean, wow.

My heart is full.

Thanks so much for choosing me to document your spectacular day, Julie and Chris

Baby Jackson | Dunwoody Newborn Photographer

Y’all, I seriously have the best job in the world.

Just in case getting snuggles from this precious newborn was not enough, my heart was so full just watching his older brother and sis dote on him.

One of my favorite moments was when it was time to start on Jackson’s solo baby shots and his older siblings changed into their dress-up clothes. They included Jackson by draping a superman cape around his shoulders <3

What a fun day it was! Thank you, Blackburn family, for letting me document this amazing time in your lives!

Danielle & Scott: Engaged | Westside Atlanta Engagement Photographer

Most of the time, I am fairly prepared for what to expect when I meet clients for their portrait sessions… but every once in a while, there will be some happy surprises that leave me utterly thrilled and speechless!

And that is exactly what happened just a little over a week ago when I met up with Danielle and Scott for their engagement session.

For instance, I did not know that Danielle was planning a shout out to her employer, Coke (yes, the one and only!), by sharing a can with her fiancé for a few shots. How fun is that?

And while I knew that they were bringing their dog, Zoey, for a few shots, I had no idea that Zoey was going to be the most cuddly and fluffy labradoodle I had ever seen. Side note: Zoey is just as sweet and charming as she appears in the photos below– even when she showed us that she was not much for walking shots!

And finally, perhaps the most mind-blowing surprise from this session was that I had no idea that Scott was a professional cellist, who plays in an orchestra… nor did know that he was planning to bring his amazing instrument to our session for a few pictures (I mean, a dream come true folks– I got a free concert, and he is soooo good!)!

Any photographer will tell you that this sort of excitement (on top of having an already gorgeous couple to photograph) will really get your creative energy flowing, and I just felt like I could have photographed Scott and Danielle all day.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session!
