Class of 2012: Laura

I can't believe I've never blogged a senior session.  I don't advertise seniors, but I've had a few gorgeous ones come my way and how could I resist?  First up is Laura.  Laura is super photogenic and absolutely beautiful.  We had so much fun during this session and may have even been kicked out of one of the spots we were shooting at :)

Laura will graduate this year from Southern Fulton High School and I know she has such a bright future ahead of her.  Good luck and best wishes with all your endeavors, I  know you'll do fabulous!





She rocked the 4" heels.  




Love this shot.  And, yes, I totally called in the wind for this one.



This is the shot that got us in trouble.  It was worth it - obviously!

Operation Smile Mini-Sessions

For a while I've been feeling like there was something missing.  Like I needed to give of my time for something...important.  And, literally, a few days later an email appeared in my inbox from the PPA discussing a charitable opportunity.  As soon as I read about it I knew I had to be involved.  Operation Smile is an organization that provides free surgery to repair cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities for children around the world.  Because the medical staff donates their services, it only costs $240 to perform one surgery.  One surgery that will change a child's life.  Forever.  I was amazed.  So if I shoot 10 sessions at $24 each a child can receive the greatest gift of their life?  I didn't have to think about this - it's an obvious decision.

This is where you come in.  For a $24 donation, you will receive a 20 minute mini-session and one 5x7 print of your choice.  Also, all of the fully edited images will be uploaded an online gallery for you to view and share with family and friends.  Of course, if you would like to purchase additional prints, mini-albums, accordion books, canvas wraps or a disc of images with a print release, you will have that opportunity as well.  This is a wonderful chance to not only help a great cause, but to receive a beautiful image of those most important to you.

Sarah + Andrew: Engaged!

We had the hardest time scheduling this session!  Between the busy fall season, tons of rain, and then (most random) a snow storm in October, this session kept getting rescheduled over and over again.  But finally as fate would have it, we were able to make a last minute date.  And by last minute I mean we squeezed this in after other sessions, the light of day, and a long rushed commute home for Andrew.

But it happened and I love this session.  They did such an awesome job!  I just adore the way these two look at each other.  They are super in love....if you look closely you might even see little hearts popping all around them.  And to top it off they brought their pup, Jackson.  Holy cuteness!  Sarah spent much time grooming him prior to the session only for him to jump in the creek right before I started shooting.  Turns out it didn't matter; he still looked adorable and added such a fun element to the session.  This was shot pretty late in the evening, which meant really pushing my camera with high ISOs and low shutter speeds, but I think it actually made this session unique and interesting.

Sarah and Andrew will be married Memorial Day weekend and I bet their wedding will be filled with lots of little popping hearts :)  Congrats again guys, I wish you all the best!!




Did I mention that Sarah is gorgeous?!

Newborn Photography: Maggie

Maggie is the sweetest newborn ever!  She was so good during our session and gave us the most adorable expressions.  And it was very laid back and relaxed; we shot some, hung out some, Maggie ate some...it was all good!  We already have another shoot lined up for her in April and I can't wait to see how much she has changed.  I love shooting newborn sessions and then getting to document their life as they grow - it is very rewarding :)  Enjoy!!

Definitely a favorite; Mom and Dad are so in love with little Maggie!





I love newborn sessions for the sheer fact of getting an intimate glimpse into a couple's new world.  A lot of my couples are first time parents and it's so amazing to see them interact with their new bundle of joy in a comfortable environment.  Even second and third time parents have the same joy and reaction to their new baby and I love capturing those expressions.









So peaceful!!




Love.

Love.

Love.
