Photographing Abbi Lynn really couldn’t have been any easier or more fun!  She was such a joy to work with and willing to climb into dungeons with me for the perfect green door!  And, she listened patiently to me ramble on and on…  Congratulations Abbi Lynn on this momentous occasion in your life & best of luck to you with your future college choice!  Either school is going to be lucky to have you!!



It’s always an delight when a family invites you into thier life, but it’s double/triplely (made that up) an honor when they invite you back again for such an intimate time in their life!  A birth of a new baby – nothing much more special than that – especially when its baby number FOUR and the first baby girl!!  They are such a beautiful family already, and adding precious Mila only secures that reputation for them!  Welcome Baby Mila!!

~ Member Event ~ Atlanta Botanical Garden ~ ATLANTA EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY ~

It was a beautiful and perfect day to showcase members and tulips at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!  Such a fun member event with games, lizards, poisonous frogs, treats and the ever popular…facepainting!  The band, Sweet Auburn String Band – was the perfect accompaniment to this gorgeous day!  Thanks for having me ABG!!

I’ve known Kara & Andrew since they were my husband’s students at LaGrange College.  I can remember having them over to our house one night…Alvin and I were a young(ish), newly married couple, hosting a few young college couples for dinner – Andrew and Kara being one of them.  Fast forward to their marriage a few years later, their new condo not far from our home, and even to Kara & I working together on some wedding gigs together (she’s a photographer too).  Now, imagine this baby…the one they prayed for and waited for…the one we all knew would be the luckiest baby in the world to have these two as his parents.  Actually, I think babies around the globe are wailing in protest ~ why didn’t they end up with parents like Kara & Andrew?  Welcome, Baby Malcolm!  We are all so glad you’ve joined us!!

I had so much fun hanging out with Kelly and her family last Saturday.  They came from North and South to gather here in Atlanta to celebrate their Dad’s 70th birthday.  What a fun group of people!  They had the whole weekend planned out – they made the most of every minute they had together.  I’m just glad they fit me into their schedule.  There was lots of laughing and silliness, you could tell that these folks really loved each other.  Thanks for letting me capture this time in your lives!

I remember when my husband and I had our first child, all we did for the first month or so was stare at him.  Every waking moment of the day – we just watched him – we were so in awe…  It was Deja Vu all over again, watching Ben’s parents with him.  They (rightfully so) are so in love with him – all they do is watch him – he is the center of their universe now, rightfully so.  He’s perfect!

Thank you for letting me document this incredible time in your lives!

I was thrilled when Elaina’s mom contacted me to take her Senior Portraits.  Elaina recently found out that she was accepted to GA Tech – she’s going to be a Yellow Jacket!!  I really couldn’t get over her composure!  The smiled through all my suggestions and didn’t one time roll her eyes at my silliness.  She was all game to hang out some on the GA Tech campus and finish off at the Varsity.  Look out world – here she comes!!



AYKM?  This was by far the dreamiest maternity session I have EVER had!  This session came out better than I even imagined!  Thanks to Candice for letting me capture her beauty and essence!  She rocked this session!  Can you believe this woman is about to have her FOURTH baby?  FOUR!!  Plus, it’s a little girl – after three boys – she’s getting her little girl!  I can’t wait to meet her!
