The Forrister Family at Georgia Highlands

I met with Beth & Matt a couple of weeks ago at Georgia Highlands. This was the first time that I had ever got to work with baby Aiden, so I was super excited about it. I was really surprised at how well both of the boys did. Little Avery is only 2 and I am not used to 2 year olds who cooperate so well. Aiden did a great job, too, of course. 

I am going to try to get all of my fall sessions finished this week while we are on Thanksgiving break, so stay tuned for new blog posts throughout the week!

Alexander

I love this kid!












Corey + Rachel

Wow, I hardly know where to begin with this one. This was the third time that I have had the great honor of photographing the wedding of a bridesmaid from my own wedding 12 years ago. When I got married, we were all very young, silly, and blissfully ignorant about what life a real "grown-up" would mean for us all. Fast-forward 12 years and as of Saturday, we have all met and married the men of our dreams! Although many of us are not as close as we once were, we have remained friends and love one watching one each others families grow and flourish. There is no more beautiful start to this process than witnessing one another's wedding. I have been so thrilled to be able to document three of these weddings. I am so proud of the families that all of my precious friends have built, and continue to build and of the happiness that they have all found.

Rachel is not only an old friend, but she is also the first cousin of my husband, so that makes us family :-) It was wonderful to be able to share in the joy of this day with not only Rachel, but with her entire family and also to meet Corey's family. I was already sold on Corey being the right man for Rachel and after meeting his sweet, fun-loving family, I could clearly see why these two are so perfect for each other.

The Puckett Family

I was able to meet up with the Puckett family again last Sunday afternoon. We had previously shot little miss Julianna's 3 month portraits in Cave Spring and decided that we had so much fun, we should do it again ;-) This time we meet up in Rockmart at the train depot and at Seaborn Jones Memorial park. Wow, has this little lady grown! I so enjoyed getting another chance to work with her. She was awesome at 3 months, but you just can't beat that 6 month mark when their little personalities start to bloom and really shine through photographs!

Maggie, Kevin, & Bravo

I met up with Maggie and Kevin two Friday's ago at Berry College in Rome. I can't believe it has taken me so long to get this up and show off this precious couple and their beautiful Australian Shepard, Bravo. Bravo was not super into our session, but he was totally down for playing frisbee. Getting a picture of him without the frisbee afterward was not happening, but he did great anyway.

Belle Terra

Our hearts and prayers go out to the great folks of Belle Terra this weekend after the devastating fire that destroyed their beautiful and recently expanded reception hall yesterday :-(

Bryn & Erin: One Year Anniversary

A year ago I had not only the joy of watching one of my best friends marry the woman of his dreams, but I also had the honor of being their wedding photographer. In celebration of their first wedding anniversary, we met up in Rome this past Tuesday and shot our session at our church, St. Mary's. Our church is a big part of our friendship and also their marriage. Bryn began coming to Mass with us while Seth and I were going through RCIA to join the church and Bryn was there supporting us the night was confirmed. Just a few years later, Bryn & Erin began their own journey through RCIA and Seth and I were thrilled to be their sponsors when they were confirmed into the church. And of course, their beautiful wedding was held at St. Mary's. So it seemed fitting to do our session there :-)

Happy Anniversary, my friends! I love y'all!

Tony & Debbie

I got to venture down to Carrollton, Ga this past Saturday for Tony & Debbie's wedding! I love fall weddings and after the long Summer lull, I was anxious to get back in there! The awesomest part was that my assistant was super hot and I brought him home with me ;-)

(oh, in case anyone reading this doesn't know, that's my husband!)

Alrighty, onto this sweet wedding!

I thought Tony's mother was just lovely and she was very photogenic, so I ended up with a lot of casual shots of her. Although, my focus doesn't fall on her in this particular shot, it's one of my current favorite pictures, so I thought I would include it :-)


Live music from Tony's sister and her family. Beautiful!




Debbie's gorgeous gown originally belonged to her mom. I loved everything about this classic gown(you know I love lace!).






















Look at that beautiful family!

My Niece Turned One!(2 months ago)

I feel absolutely terrible that I haven't taken the time to sit down and gush about my sweet little niece turning one. Life has been incredibly busy lately and I suppose time just got away from me. While Liam is doing a writing assignment and not using my computer this morning, I thought I would sit down and show off my favorite little pumpkin from her 1 year portrait session.

Dylan & Levi

My sweet friend, Leanne, came to see me today with her two little ones. It was a fun little time in my back yard. We didn't get to shoot very long because the boys(and Mama!) got kind of worn out. I was so pleased to have gotten sweet Dylan's attention enough to get some adorable shots of him. Poor little Levi was having none of my shenanigans today. I think we did alright though! It's hard to do anything wrong when you have kids as beautiful as these two fella's ;-)

You wouldn't know it from the pictures, but sweet Dylan here has Autism. He's a beautiful, precious, lovely and lively little boy so full of love and life. His sweet, loving parents have established Dylan's Chance, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children with Autism. Please consider stopping by the Facebook page or the website and show your support!
