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!

Ashley Turns 3 | Atlanta Child Photographer

She had me at fire truck:)

As a boy mom, I have come to love cars, planes, trucks and trains… so any little girl who loves fire trucks enough to make it her birthday party’s theme will pretty much steal my heart!

It took Ashley a few minutes (and a few tickles) to warm up to me, but pretty soon she was flashing her million dollar smile in my direction constantly.

All of her preschool buddies came, ate, colored and explored a real live fire truck– which came complete with real live fire fighters, and a demonstration of how to suit up to fight fires!

But Ashley was more interested in sitting in the fire truck, which she did with a huge grin on her face for at least 15 minutes!

It was a very special party for a very special and beautiful little girl.

Happy Birthday, Ashley!
